Rancid Toronto – Rancid hits Toronto on July 29th, 2017 as part of their co-headlining tour, From Boston to Berkeley, with The Dropkick Murphys.
***Scroll Down for AFTER PARTY Info***
If you don’t already have tickets. Well, I guess you are shit out of luck, unless you want to pay scalper prices. The From Boston to Berkeley Toronto tour stop at Echo Beach is sold out. The last time Rancid was in Toronto was for Riot Fest 2015 – which was the last time the festival was held in Toronto. Dropkick Murphys were here last September as part of TURF – Toronto Urban Roots festival. Also on the bill are The Bouncing Souls and Jake Burns (best known as the front-man for Stiff Little Fingers). This co-headlining bill was something Canadian punk lovers couldn’t miss out on. Other sold out dates on the tour include Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Asbury Park NJ and Sacramento CA.
Rancid Toronto After Party
Remember when Rancho Relexo used to have punk shows upstairs? Well, that space has now been officially turned into a new underground music venue called Stop, Drop & Roll. If you couldn’t get tickets, or if you want something to do after the Rancid show. There is an after party show going on at Stop, Drop & Roll, 300 College St. Pink door above Rancho Relaxo.
Keep your Rancid/Dropkick Murphys Ticket stub, this will grant you free entry into the after party.

From Echo Beach to Stop, Drop & Roll
Stop, Drop & Roll is one streetcar ride from Echo Beach. Just take the 511 Bathurst streetcar from Exhibition Loop and get off at College St. Walk east, toward Spadina past Augusta Ave. It is the Pink door above Rancho Relaxo.
From Union Station to Stop, Drop & Roll
If you are coming to/from Union station, it is also one streetcar ride. Just take the 510 Spadina streetcar to College and then walk west. The Spadina streetcar is kinda tricky to find if you are new to the city. You go to the TTC at union station and down to the subway platform where the Subway runs. There you will see signs directing you to the “streetcars”.
You could always just take the subway from Union station and walk from Queen’s park or take the 506 streetcar west on College. But personally I’d take the Spadina streetcar.
Just type in 300 College St. into Google and away you go!
