Hi Everyone
This Friday, Nov 19, Bongo Beat is proud to be a part of the Toronto edition of the International Pop Overthrow Festival. Four of our artists will be participating and to celebrate, we have created a special Bongo Beat Toronto IPO Sampler that you can download here for the next 14 days:
It includes tracks by Dave Rave, Kevin Kane, Plunt, and Ralph in addition to a PDF with cover art you can print out.
PLEASE NOTE: Ralph and Plunt have new set times and Plunt is now on at 11pm and Ralph at 11:30pm
Friday, Nov 19, The Rivoli, Toronto
For the first time ever, Bongo Beat brings the fun of its yearly legendary Cavern Club Liverpool
shows to Canada. We've got 4 acts ready to rock The Rivoli. All sets are 20-25 minutes.
9:30pm - KEVIN KANE (Grapes of Wrath)
- Kevin is now based in Toronto and immediately after his set he's off to The Horseshoe down the street - where The Grapes of Wrath are headlining the same night! Pop craftsmanship at its best.
11:00pm - PLUNT
- Montreal's cowpunk-indierock quartet are led by girl drummer/vocalist Peeps
G. (the Cruddz) with Kevin Komoda (Rational Youth & Pest5000) on guitar, Ryan Eugene Newman on bass (The Panic), and Brian Arsenault (Strawberry)  on guitars. Singalong choruses galore!!!
11:30pm - RALPH
- Label boss Ralph Alfonso has not headlined Toronto since his Harbourfront show in 2001.
He last headlined The Rivoli in 1996. The all-star RALPH band will include Dave Rave, Mark Foley,
and Jack Pedler (Teenage Head) on drums. All out garage rock jazz and pop! This is Ralph and Dave's first appearance together on the Rivoli stage since 1996!
12:00pm (midnight) - DAVE RAVE
Fresh from US Dates with Bruce Springsteen and Joe Gruschecky, and a year of non-stop touring in Italy, UK, USA and more (including first round Grammy 2011 nominations) - Dave Rave will end the night with a rock'n'roll hi-energy party in his first appearance in Toronto in almost 3 years. Expect pure pop perfection from the man they call Canada's Nick Lowe.
