Two Way Monologues aka Dan Wolovick’s 7 year run as the booker/promoter at Rancho Relaxo is coming to an end at the end of June. To celebrate/mourn this momentous occasion TWM is turning back the clock 5 or so years and bringing back TWMFEST from June 27th-29th at Rancho Relaxo. When the last band hits the stage at 1:00 am on the night of the 29th it will be quite literally an end of an era.
Over the 3 day festival 18 bands will play with doors at 7:30 and bands on the hour from 8 pm with last act on at 1 am. Each night carries a $10 cover or all 3 nights for $20.
Over the last 7 years Two Way Monologues has put on upwards of 2000 events at Rancho Relaxo including such acts as AWOLNATION, Dinosaur Bones, Still Life Still, Parlovr, Amos the Transparent, Honheehonhee, the Darcys, Giraffe Giraffe, Whale Tooth, Schomberg Fair and so many more. Two Way Monologues has been proud to help break new acts from Toronto and Canada in general and that tradition will continue with TWMFEST and carry over to our next chapter at Handlebar in Kensington Market!
Upon completion of the festival Two Way Monologues and good friends GreenShades are moving our operation to The Handlebar where they will book all Saturdays, half Thursday/Tuesdays and Sundays to begin. After 7 years to say we are excited to write a new chapter is a massive understatement. But, before any of that TWMFEST aims to put an epic ending to our run at Rancho Relaxo. As of now these are the confirmed lineups and time slots:
