Indie Night Presents A Tribute To One Hit Wonders

Join us for a special edition of INDIE NIGHT in which we pay homage to some the of the great songs of all time! We call it TRIBUTE NIGHT! This time, the theme is ONE HIT WONDERS!

Imagine a dozen LIVE bands coming together to play a couple of One Hit Wonder COVERS, ALL ERAS, ALL NIGHT LONG!! So much fun! And it's FREE, no cover charge! Yep!

Many of these songs will be familiar to you but the artists will be mostly unknown as they only had one hit! Amazing.

There will be beer specials (thanks to Steamwhistle), and a full backline (thanks to Long & McQuade & the Piston).

If your band is interested in participating, please get in touch here on the Indie Night FB page ASAP as spots are limited! :)

ROMES

On-Sale Now:

GA: $10+ S/C
Tickets at Eventbrite.com, Soundscapes & Rotate This

------------------
Tucked away in Kensington Market, Downtown Toronto’s most culturally diverse neighborhood, ROMES converted the basement of their semi-detached red-brick into their full time rehearsal space. The band relentlessly spent their waking hours there, exploring their eclectic tastes in music and ultimately writing the tracks for their debut self-titled album, out now.

ROMES have harnessed their pop sensibilities into an alternative sound that is completely their own. With soulful melodies and bright, funky guitar riffs playing off gritty synths, the tracks are instant, high-energy, anthemic ear candy. These larger-than-life tunes, backboned by thumping, hip-hop rhythms and disco-inspired bass-lines, put a modern twist on the group’s early musical inspirations.

The 3 Lion's Den present The Nations League Finals

Hey England supporters… The gates of the 3 Lion’s Den are opening up at the Piston (937 Bloor St. West) once again..!

It’s Summer in the city… and sadly Summer 2019 is another one of ‘those’ Summers. Yes, Summer 2019 is another dreaded European ‘Football-less’ Summer. No World Cup and No Euros to gather the tribes around TVs and screens at pubs and bars in the city. These Summers always just feel wrong

BUT…

THANKFULLY… the EUROPEAN FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION has thrown us all a bit of a lifeline for Summer’s like these from now on with the introduction of the new NATION’S LEAGUE CUP. The Nations League is a 55 Country, year-long tournament (held during the regular domestic season) and culminating in a three day, 3 game, Semi-final and Final.

This is the first year of the new Nations League… and the winning teams from the tournament are now set for the final 3 matches which will give us the first ever Nations League Cup winners.

The Semi-finalists are: Portugal, The Netherlands, England and Switzerland with those 4 teams knocking out all the heavyweights like Italy, Spain, Germany, Croatia and Belgium along the way.
