The legendary El Mocambo has announced a new partnership with the The Lemmon Stage in Toronto. The venue, which has hosted everyone from Blondie to the Rolling Stones, recently reopened after being closed since 2014. After relaunching the El Mocambo brand, things really kicked off last week with a vibrant rock show from Toronto’s own, Our Lady Peace. Now, in collaboration with Lemon Entertainment, The Lemon Stage will work with the storied venue to bring new and emerging talent to one of Toronto’s most historic stages.
After being a staple at Vans Warped Tour, The Lemmon Stage will resurface at the El Mo to feature weekly shows focusing on artist development. The partnership will last a year and has promised a specifically curated lined up of emerging talent and special guests.
In a statement, El Mocambo owner and former Dragons’ Den investor, Michael Wekerle said, “We are thrilled to partner with Lemmon Entertainment on this important endeavour to support the recovery of our live music scene. We have a very special guest performing to kick this off with an artist, that I promise you, is not Lame !”
If you couldn’t guess by the not-so-subtle reference, Toronto’s garage-rockers The Beaches will kick off the first Lemon Stage night at The El Mo with support from Whale & The Wolf. For a chance to win tickets, click here.
