A night of extremely talented music at the Gladstone Hotel capped by an act we’ve been trying to get on the go for months in Fort York. Also joining them on the bill are Last of the Bandits coming in hot with lots of momentum, the dirty soul rock n roll of KUMONgA and of course the excellent folk-rock stylings of Beams.

Over the last few years Last of the Bandits have been one of the best bands in Toronto that you might not know yet. Recently that has been changing, just last month the band won a competition getting them a bunch of support from Coalition to record. They bring this momentum over the Gladstone to kick off one of the strongest bills we’ve had in a long long time. Get out early!
This booking goes way back. Years and years ago I fell in love with a Toronto band called The Brown Hornets — look them up, they ruled! A few years back I heard KUMONgA was on the scene with a few of the folks from the Brown Hornets including lead singer Danny Walters who was one of my all time favourite Toronto frontmen. Now we finally have them on a gig!
Then we have a treat for you in the form of a 7 piece indie-folk act Beams. The band has one quote on their fb page: “An untold spookiness lurks in the backdrop of each track…” and I have to say that is a very apt description. A special invite from our headliners Fort York this set should be an absolute treat.

The country leaning folk-alternative you’ll hear on the bandcamp is excellent but the band has told me they’ve re-tooled a touch and are now on the more rockin’ side. They were great before and I could only assume they are better now. Another act I’ve been dying to get on the Gladdy stage since our debut gig. See you there!
