Published Jan 08, 2014Beer and good music: two things that go as well together as peanut butter and jelly. That's not escaping the folks over at Toronto's TALLBOYS – Craft Beer House, as they've announced the lineup for the third annual edition of their craft beer and independent music series, the Big Smoke Festival.
Taking part over the January 24 and 25 weekend at the Garrison (which a press release notes is "similarly dedicated to supporting the local craft beer industry"), for the third year in a row, the independent beer provider will be pairing some of Toronto's best beers with some of the city's best bands for a boozy celebration of Toronto's DIY hops and rocks scene.
Headlining the festival will be local up-and-comers Cai.ro on January 24 and onetime Chvrches touring supporters Basecamp on January 25. Joining them during the two-day fest will be performances from the likes of Army Girls (the two-piece power-pop band from DIANA frontwoman Carmen Elle), Adaline, Highs, Wolf J McFarlane, Kashka and Warm Myth.
"In a city that boasts some of the best bands and brews in the world, it's a totally missed opportunity not to bring them together," TALLBOYS stated in a press release.
Tickets will be $15 in advance (with more at the door) and will include a sampling glass and two drink tickets; for those solely interested in the beer, entry is free before the show.
