Nothing lasts forever it seems, even one of Canada’s most famous music venues. The EL MOCAMBO is closing its doors in November and many will mourn its passing. The El-Mo made headlines when the Rolling Stones performed there in 1977 <PHOTO ABOVE – Toronto Star>; our Prime Minister’s wife – Margaret Trudeau – danced the night away; the Toronto Police Pipe Band performed on its stage, Elvis Costello and April Wine recorded live albums in the club; a Stevie Ray Vaughan concert was filmed there; Bo Diddley performed, etc. etc.
The club’s final show will be on November 6 as a fundraiser for Parkinson’s research.
