Call the Office
Call The Office is London Ontario’s longest running and best live music club, downtown at the corner of York and Clarence since the late 1860’s.
Oh, if these walls could talk.
Known as The York Hotel in the 1960’s, it presented many folk acts of the day and was the home base for the world famous and critically acclaimed Nihilist Spasm Band. In the 1970’s it was home to many of the exciting new bands which would unite under the banner of Punk Rock, including The Demics , one of Canada’s most important punk bands.
Many of the area’s most original live bands continue to grace the stage here nightly. Call The Office continues this tradition today by showcasing up and coming talent from the city, as well as bands, both new and established, from all over Canada, the U.S., and the world, with an emphasis on underground music in all it’s forms. Call The Office has helped establish London as a viable market in the tour routing of national and international acts.
Across these beer soaked floorboards have walked some of the greatest musicians of our time. That’s not boasting, it’s the truth.
Think about Canada’s biggest bands of the last twenty years and you’ll find that one thing they have in common is that they’ve all grace the stage here at CTO. Well, except Sloan.
Bands from all over the U.S., Europe, even Japan, make a stop in London at Call The Office when they are on tour.
