Geeks and Beats podcast, episode 289: The Elmo is Back!

It’s finally happening: A beloved Toronto music venue, the El Mocambo, is coming back to life, palm tree lights and all. Delayed by COVID-19 and the cruel hands of fate, the El Mo will livestream its first concert on September 10, a performance from Big Wreck on the venue’s second-floor stage.

Amber posted a story on the club here.

There’s also this interview with club owner Michael Wekerle from Global News AM640.
