Mondays, 10pm, FREE: TRANZAC OPEN STAGE
Every Monday in the Southern Cross Lounge, The Tranzac hosts Toronto’s best open stage.
The Southern Cross is an intimate, cozy room with a piano, amps, & drum kit, and also happens to be one of the best-sounding rooms in the city. The crowd is a mix of regulars and newcomers, mostly acoustic but open to pretty much anything (including hip-hop, instrumental electric guitar, and spoken word) — it’s a great place to try out a new song or perform with a new band.
Sign up at 8 p.m., open mic at 10 p.m. Each performer plays two songs, and the night generally ends between 12 a.m. and 1 a.m.
