Toronto's Mod Club Is Apparently Reopening as the Axis Club
Published Apr 16, 2021Back in November, Toronto concertgoers' hearts collectively broke after the announcement that the city's Mod Club Theatre would be shutting down for good. Now it appears the club will be reopening — but under a new name.
Earlier this week, Arlo Parks mapped out a North American tour that includes a stop at the former College Street venue in September, in an announcement that has befuddled local music fans and industry workers alike. Closer inspection of the show's ticket listings reveals a statement that appears to signal the venue has been taken over by a new group who have renamed the spot the Axis Club.
"The concert venue at 722 College St (formerly The Mod Club) will be reopening with a new name and this show will be happening," Parks' concert ticketing merchant page reads.
So far, no other information about the new venue has been revealed. Stay tuned while we keep an eye on the new Axis Club.
Prior to its 2020 closure, the Mod Club played host to Post Malone, Car Seat Headrest, Royce 5'9", Angel Olsen, Com Truise, James Blake, Partynextdoor, Lana Del Rey, the Weeknd and many, many more.
The club was originally founded in 1999 under the name Lava Lounge before the Mod Club was officially born in 2002. It has operated under that name up until November.
