Mel Lastman Square! Just north of Sheppard Station! We're playing the Global Village Festival at 6:30 on Friday! Come on out! Free!
Hot Apollo's going to be playing at 9:00 on the 16th of June at Smiling Buddha. Saturday night!
On the newly renovated main floor!
I haven't even been there yet.
There will be several other bands. It'll be sweet.
961 College Street. $9 at the door if you say that you're there for Hot Apollo.
Hot Apollo's going to be playing at The Cavern on the 31st of May with Richard Malouin! Also on the stage? Alan Kulka and Jordan & Elena. That's right! We're the only band that doesn't use the names of any of the members! What does that signify? Probably nothing! But I'm Jaymes Buckman.
Come out to see me and the other stuff at 9:00 in The Cavern at 76 Church Street near King.
When I went to find the address, Google Maps called it a dive bar, which means that it has to be good.
Hey, man. Have you heard about Jimmy Ruffian? He's a stylish dude on the Toronto scene right now. You can trust that from me. I know style. And dudes. I guess. Not so much about the Toronto scene. But whatever. I only live in this city.
Anyway! We're playing at his show at Duffy's on the 14th of April. That's right! Another classic Saturday night at Duffy's with the Hot Apollo boys! And the boys from The Rough Go, featuring Jimmy Ruffian! That's a third permutation of the name "James" in addition to our drummer Jamie and me! Will there be more? Let's find out!
And Wayne Kennedy! And Wordplay, which is an actual band and not just a thing I do sometimes!
Music at 9:00! 1238 Bloor West near Lansdowne!
Hot Apollo! Cherry Cola's! Two bright tastes that explode right together. We'll be playing at that marvelously appointed institution on the 5th of April, which is a Thursday. Come and see us then. After us, you can hear SpaceGirl and Lavender Orange, and both of those bands also have suitably evocative names. That's one more way to know that it's going to be a good time. And I believe that Piines is closing out the night. It's not my favourite of the names, but I do like that doubled i.
$10 at the door. Music around 9:00. 200 Bathurst Street.
Back at May Bar because we can! And you can too! On the best Saturday in March, Hot Apollo will be ruling with tunes at 9:00 in the evening. 876 Dundas West.
Shouting it out! Hot Apollo are breaching the night with phantasmal tunes at the May Bar at 9:00 on the 23rd of February! That's 876 Dundas West. We've been there before. We'll be there again. You should be there for some of that.
Returning to Duffy's Tavern for a show with our old friends in Sex & Summer.
We're on at 10:00. They're on after that. And Tradesmen are after them. I forgot that part.
1238 Bloor Street West. Near Lansdowne Station.
Jamie and me! We're doing it! A duo show to rock out the new year at 10:00 on New Year's Eve at Duffy's Tavern. 10:00? Yeah! That means that you'll still have time to do other party things when we're done. But if you want to stick around, you'll get the raucous sounds of The Discarded and Viscosity! Two other bands!
Duffy's by Lansdowne Station. 1238 Bloor. $5 at the door.
Hot Apollo's going to be playing some sort of righteous rock-and-roll on Thursday, that glorious 14th Day pf December, and it'll be happening around 8:00 at the Supermarket, a venerable institution at the mouth of Kensington. 268 Augusta Avenue, dudes. Be there.
It's a Sunday night in November, and Hot Apollo's opening it up at the Horseshoe Tavern!
We're on at 8:30.
Then there'll be time for Church On Sunday, Band Against Humanity, Newcomer, and Empty Threat!

Nuit Blanche! September 30th, baby! That thing's a Saturday night, and we're going to light it up in Nocturne at 10:00! When we're done, things'll be primed and ready for midnight techno that'll go till last call at 4:00.
If you want something to do after that . . . I don't know. It's Nuit Blanche. Wander around and see some more art installations. Like a two-inch pool of vodka or something. I haven't seen the list.
550 Queen Street West. By Bathurst.
Hot Apollo! At the Bovine! August 27th!
In support of the visiting Almost Kennedy, we're joining 2 other Toronto bands to make the club shake with all kinds of rocking sounds! That's 4 bands in total!

On Saturday, this 24th of June, Hot Apollo will be giving a special performance for the Global Village Festival at Mel Lastman Square.
Then they'll be giving an equally special but slightly shorter performance on the other side of Mel Lastman Square.
Come for one! Stay for both! Or whatever! It's all good.
We're playing on Stage 1 at 6:30 and Stage 2 at 7:45.
Mel Lastman Square. It's going to shake.
The trinity returns!
On a glorious Saturday, 10th of June, Hot Apollo will be opening up another night of musical majesty at the Libertarian Public House with The Unlikely Story and Tape Eagles! To be joined by newcomers Inevitable!
And it starts at 8:00!
235 Queen Street East.
$5 at the door. That comes with a cupcake.
On the 16th of June, which is a Friday, Hot Apollo will be opening up the Cameron House with our raucously rolllicky rock-and-roll.
And then Capture De Band.
And then The Inanimates.
And then Morning Fame.
Incidentally, that last band goes on at midnight, which means that it technically will be morning when they play.
But don't worry. Hot Apollo's on at 9:00 to throw some tunes to you evening birds, and all sorts of songs will fly in between.
$7. Cameron House.
408 Queen Street West.
16th of June at 9:00.
Sex & Summer, those sensuous slingers of surfy sounds, have invited us out to play another show with them at Duffy's Tavern. For the sake of superlative sibilance, we'll be supported by Stolen Statues, who just struck the scene in 2016. Finally, I'm pleased to say that an old friend's new musical project got sneaked on to the bill at the last moment to close out the night with a unique piquancy. They're called Trellis.
Anyway. Duffy's Tavern. 1238 Bloor Street West. Near Lansdowne Station.
2nd of June.
Friday. We play at 10:00.
Hot Apollo will be playing another searing set at the Libertarian Public House on the 19th of May. We're on at 8:00, and The Unlikely Story and Tape Eagles will be returning to continue the tunes after that. Then the new guys in Better Off Dead will come in to finish off the night.
235 Queen Street East, dudes. It's a Friday.
We're going to send some rock in the general direction of your faces on the 24th of March at the Libertarian Public House. We're on at 8:00, and then The Unlikely Story's going to hit the stage. Do you not know them? You will.
