BYRDS, BYRDS, BYRDS: Tribute to The Byrds Featuring Don Stevenson of Moby Grape!

Friday January 29th, the Linsmore Tavern is excited to welcome back some of Canada's top musicians paying homage to on of the most influential bands out of the USA, The Byrds!  Byrds Byrds Byrds is making their return to the Linsmore Tavern for a special night of music, as it's been nearly a year since their last show! This is going to be a memorable night as their is a special guest who will be performing with the band. Don Stevenson from Moby Grape will be joining Byrds Byrds Byrds for this evening, so you definitely don't want to miss this!

Byrds Byrds Byrds is a fantastic evening of the songs of The Byrds, California's psychedelic, folk rock pioneers. More than a tribute band, this is a visceral evocation of an era. The songs remain classic; from the folk rock of Mr Tambourine Man, Turn Turn Turn and Bells of Rhymney, the freewheeling sonic attack of Eight Miles High, through to the relaxed country rock, that they basically invented.
