Achtung Toronto! Last Shows Ever at The Big Bop Tonight

January 28, 2010

Toronto, tonight we will say goodnight to a dear friend.

We heard the news back in early December that The Big Bop was set to close. Back then it was unknown how long Toronto’s triple-decker music venue would remain open, but now the day has come, with the last show’s ever to be played tonight at the Kathedral and the Reverb.

Playing downstairs in the Kathedral will be The Matadors with Terrorchargers (featuring John Tard, formerly of  The 3 Tards and the man presenting tonight’s show) and Heatskores – and it’s a free show, so there is no excuse for the place not being rammed. Meanwhile, upstairs in the Reverb cover is $20 for a show that features Iron Maiden’s first decent singer Paul Di’Anno, who was of course replaced by Bruce Dickinson.

Tonight is the last time The Big Bop will be open to the public, and the doors get locked up for good at the end of the month.  Don’t kick yourself for not going – see you at 651 Queen Street West this evening.
