To highlight our 10-year anniversary next year, we are putting together a new special project. We're not going to tell you the whole deal yet, but to start we need a list of the most iconic rock clubs from across Canada over the past 50 years.
We'll be using this list to create a special map, as a painting, done by an iconic Canadian painter, to create a really unique product to celebrate independent Canadian music.
The feedback on Twitter has been great so far, so please keep it coming! We're not throwing out any criteria other than 'iconic' from the past 50 years, and we're not sure how many cities we can actually fit on our map, but as of right now, here is what we have:
1. Vancouver - The Commodore
2. Calgary -The Republik
3. Edmonton - The Sidetrack Cafe
4. Regina - Channel 1
5. Saskatoon - Amigos
6. Winnipeg - West End Cultural Centre
7. Thunder Bay - Crocks n Rolls
8. Toronto - Horseshoe
9. Ottawa - Barrymores
10. London - Call the Office
11. Kitchener - The Starlight Lounge
12. Kingston - Toucan
13. Montreal - Foufounes Electriques
14. Halifax - The Double Deuce
15. PEI - The Barn
These picks are not set in stone by any means, so if you feel strongly about a different club in any of these cities, please let us know!
