No, really. Nostalgia Festival. August 24th - 26th at Lebreton Flats (for the out-of-towners, that’s where Bluesfest is). Tributes to Petty, The Hip, The Stones (Blushing Brides), Fleeteood Mac, Madon

Check out the FAQ on that page. It doesn't include what must certainly be the most frequently asked question: "Why?"

Were you serious?

Yes and no. I'd love to make a journey to Ottawa and see friends, plus she's originally from Montreal and keeps talking how we should go there this summer. Dates of the fest fit the time frame and since she listens to a lot of those bands, and if into it, then sure why not. Musically we're not in the same boat though.

I hear they just added DSO.  

Now who's going?

 Considering I won't drive 35 mins east to see them, that wouldn't sweeten the deal. But as mentioned, if Ana is actually into checking this out, I'd go. Otherwise, it'll be two weeks in Varennes.

So I told the gal I'm seeing I wanted to go to Ottawa for this. First question I was asked: "is there a night ranger cover playing? I started to laugh, she didn't. I'm really not sure if she's serious.


Well it's official: I'm oblivious to francophone sarcasm.
