    Worked fine for me. Thanks, as always, for keeping coal in the boilers.

    A three-day cover band festival is coming to Ottawa

    I went with m’lady and seemingly all of my friends from Ottawa. I think there was an opener.

    No. But their left-handed “Paul” playing a Hofner doesn’t hurt.

    Big fan of the direction this thread is taking.

    This sort of thing has “Truro” written all over it. Then again, a smaller market might have more per capita interest, but would it have the sheer numbers to support it? Also, from a quick look it appears that all of the acts are represented by the same agency. I’m not sure what that means, if anything, but I found it interesting. The company has a huuuuuuuuge roster of tribute acts: Booking House Inc.

    CityFolk 2018 rumours

    Thumbs up, all around. I preferred the previous venue, but have really come to enjoy the site and layout of Cityfolk, especially now that they’ve figured out how to make the indoor stage feel more intimate and club-like.

    I...I’m embarrassed.

    I wish them well, I really do. But I’m having a hard time figuring what their target demographic is. “Serious” music fans aren’t likely to be tempted, and I don’t know that the classic rock radio crowd will be motivated to get out for it. Maybe for one or two of these bands in a bar for ten or fifteen bucks, but for a full day or weekend at a festival site? I don’t know. But hey, like I just said elsewhere, if a bunch of Supertramp fans want to stand around in a field for three days, God bless ‘em.

    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, Madonna, Bob Marley, Elton John / Billy Joel, Rush, Queen, Clapton and more. Can’t say I’ve Ever heard of such a thing, but I wish them well.  https://nostalgiafestival.ca/

    Ottawa Jazz Festival

    That was first assumption as well, although the only times I can remember a stage being there for events in the past few years (post-Bluesfest) it was at the other end facing west. Although none of those were the size of Jazzfest. We shall see.

    Ottawa Jazz Festival

    They still haven't uploaded the site map to their website, sooooo question for you (or anyone else who has seen one): Which way does the main stage face? Is it set up at the Canal end of Marion Dewar Plaza, facing west? Or will it be set up closer to the courthouse and face east? I've seen both configurations for concerts on that lawn, and the location of the stage will likely impact my ticket buying.

    New (Post Jerry) Grateful Dead book out June 19th

    From what I’ve read it’s no big surprise that the Leshes weren’t on board with this. Should be an interesting book, if a little gossipy. I’ll be sure to listen to some hetty JRAD while I read it. *wink emoji to show how clever I am*
