Eyes Like Static is the fastest rising star in Toronto’s pop punk scene.

The Rolling Fabs – Tribute to The Beatles and The Rolling Stones Returns to the Linsmore Tavern!

September 21, 2023 7:00 pm

This night is definitely for diehard fans of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones! On Thursday September 21st, the Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave), is excited to welcome back, The Rolling Fabs and their Tribute to The Beatles and The Rolling Stones! This incredible Tribute band is very unique, instead of playing the standard hits of these two legendary bands, you will get to hear the unsung gems of these two bands, that all of the hardcores will definitely appreciate! They played the Linsmore earlier this year and it has definitely been one of the highlight shows of 2023 so far. The show starts at 7:30pm, there will be a $10 cover at the door, so don’t miss it!

Do you love The Beatles and Stones but want to hear more than just the usual well-known hits? Well, your prayers have been answered.

The Rolling Fabs play the unsung acoustic guitar-based gems of two of the deepest catalogues of great songs in rock. From Lady Jane to Lovely Rita to Sweet Virginia to Dear Prudence, The Rolling Fabs play a definitive set of songs that hardcore fans of both bands have been longing to hear live.
Born out of lead singer-guitarist Sean Peever’s love of the lesser known deep cuts from both bands (especially the acoustic ones), The Rolling Fabs are a six piece ensemble that, while mostly remaining faithful to the original arrangements, also puts their unique spin on them as well.
Their thirty song set consists of fifteen songs each from The Beatles and Rolling Stones – many of which have never or rarely been played live by them. Hardcore fans will revel in hearing songs that they’ve always loved. Casual fans will be pleasantly surprised to discover songs that they’ve never heard and fans of one band but not the other, may find themselves bopping along to songs from “the other side”.
