The ninth annual Stay out of the Mall concert series wrapped up last night, and it was totally worth staying out late on a school night. This show totally rocked my jingle bells. P.S. I Love You opened, then there was Metz, and then Zeus! This band makes me happy on a cellular level. Their [...]
Next week’s a crazy week for music at the e-bar. September 14 Caribou’s playing and then 2 days later Born Ruffians are in town. I’ve already got my tickets and I am planning my nap schedule so I don’t get all sleepy at work. Yep I’m old, and I’ll wear earplugs at the show, along with [...]
Whatever you think Jazz sounds like… toss it out the window and come check out the Guelph Jazz Festival. It’s called a Jazz festival, but this awesome event brings just about every imaginable kind of music from all over the world to venues all over Guelph from Sept 8-12.

My dad agreed to go the Cornerstone cafe – one of those weird vegetarian restaurants – only because he “wasn’t very hungry anyway.” He LOVED it, and so do I. They have fabulous soups, sandwiches, salads, pad thai, and their breakfasts are tasty too. Try the migas or the huevos rancheros. Bring a mug and [...]
A while ago, Bruce Peninsula played at the Albion Hotel. The band noticed that the room was a WHOLE lot more full than the last time they had played in that joint. Blame last year’s Hillside festival. Bruce Peninsula played a set on the island stage that blew everybody away so, when the band came [...]
