Saturday January 6th 2018 and the very first Saturday of the year and the Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave) can't think of a better band to kick off our Saturday Night's in 2018, then one of Canada's best up and coming bands, Freeman Dre And The Kitchen Party! This Original-Romantic-Offkilter-CityFolk-Rock’n’roll-Songs from a kitchen in Parkdale, is gaining recognition as one of the best live bands in the country and their original music makes is turning a lot of heads! Music fans, don't miss this show as Freeman Dre And The Kitchen Party does not play many shows east of Yonge Street, so this is going to be really cool to introduce them to the east side of Toronto! With lyrical dexterity that spurs fitting (albeit tired) comparison to the holy triumvirate: Dylan, Waits, and Cohen, Freeman Dre is modern street-wise troubadour. This is an exciting night that we know all of our hardcore music fans will enjoy and appreciate! The show starts at 9:30pm, there will be a $5 cover charge!
