Located on Spadina Ave near the U of Toronto, the "El Mo" opened as a music venue in 1850 and has been an entertainment centre and bar since. With stages on the 1st & 2nd floors it has hosted many major acts such as U2, Elvis Costello, and Jimi Hendrix but its most famous claim to fame was the weekend of March 4,5 1977 when the Rolling Stones booked themselves in as "The Cockroaches" and played their 1st club date in 14 years. These surprise sessions were recorded and were released on the "Love You Live" album. I still remember where I was that weekend and unfortunately it wasn't there!
This sign was erected in 1948 and the El Mo is still going strong.
