Tom Waits Appreciation Congregation on a Friday at the Linsmore Tavern!

The Tom Waits Appreciation Congregation have been playing at the Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave) for close to 5 years now and the majority of their shows have been on a Monday night. We have had so many people ask us to bring them in on a non-school night so that people can stay out late and party all night with this incredible band! We have done this once in the past and it was so much fun and so many people who are not able to see them on a Monday night want another chance to see this band perform on the weekend! So that is exactly what is going to happen on Friday December 28ths, as we are bringing in the TWAC for a special Friday night show! So get ready to party all night with the Tom Waits Appreciation Congregation and not worry about waking up for school or work! Arrive early for a good seat, because all of their shows on a Monday night have been at capacity and there are not many seats! The show starts at 9:30pm! Come see one of Toronto's real gems and party with them all Friday night!
