We are two solo performers booking a tour through the Northeast and would like to book some shows in Toronto. Thanks!

What size of venue are you looking for?

Toronto has an epic crapload of venues for music ranging from tiny to massive.

Hugh's Room is one place that books a lot of singer-songwriters. It's a great room but it's a sort of dinner theater set-up, which may affect how tickets sell-through, I dunno.

I think it's hard to get a show at Hugh's Room. The Central seems to be quite open to shows. Maybe Mitzi's Sister?
