Greta Van Fleet play “surprise” club gig at Velvet Underground in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Greta Van Fleet were scheduled to play two sold out shows at Rebel in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on July 6 and 8, 2018 but prior to that on July 5th, the group played a surprise gig at the Velvet Underground in the same city. The group was billed as Peking Duk outside the venue heading into the gig and played reportedly to a crowd of about 75 people (as relayed by an industry source to Sleaze Roxx). The next night, Greta Van Fleet played to a sold out crowd at the Rebel, which reportedly has an indoor capacity of 3,163 people.

The Velvet Underground has a capacity of 500 people and consists of two rooms, which are described as follows by Club Crawlers:

“The Velvet Underground Main Bar: The Velvet Underground is Toronto’s choice for Alternative Rock in an intimate environment. This eclectic spot has presented a vast and diverse array of events, everything from showcasing Canadian bands such as Junkhouse and Crawl to the completely outrageous Genitorture fashion show. The Velvet Underground was a host to the CD release Party of Jagged Little Pill which launched Alanis Morrisette‘s career.

The Velvet Underground Club: Go for the ’80s Goth and Retro music, or simply lounge on the sofas with your friends. Relax with a game of pool if you don’t quite feel like dancing. Catering to a wide range of alternative types, from nouveau goths to university preps, the Velvet Underground is a nice change from the ordinary. The ultra cool decor includes sculptures of angels created from found metal that add to the lush unique atmosphere.”
