Hot Apollo

Toronto's Shiniest Rock-and-Roll Band

October 13th Show

876 Dundas West on the 13th of October! Saturday night.

Hot Apollo's opening a whole night of various musical acts, and we actually start at 8:00. I'm not going to list all the other bands, but the ever awesome Chris Birkett will he among them. For the rest?

Anyway. $10 at door. On the way in. They don't charge you to get out.

May 31st at The Cavern

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.

April 14th at Duffy's

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!

April 5th at Cherry Cola's

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.

Duffy's Tavern! New Year's Eve!

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. 

30th of September at Nocturne

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.
