Halifax Pop Explosion:: Schedule Released

On Monday I attended the Press Conference for the 15th annual Halifax Pop Explosion, which shouldn't come as a huge shock to you based on the large amount of coverage we've been giving the Explosion here on the fest. Well considering the lineup Waye Mason and the good people at the Explosion have put together, I think it's certainly warranted. But up till now we've been pretty much focused on the music side of the event, but there's plenty more going on:

A central piece of the Halifax Pop Explosion's music industry and community focused programming, The Music Matters Conference is taking place on Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20 in the Lord Nelson Hotel. This two-day conference will incorporate discussions, workshops and panels on topics ranging from music publishing to live touring.

Canzine East will take place on Saturday, October 20 at Strange Adventures Comic Bookshop. The event will feature zines, art and independent records sold all day long in the store.

The Super 8 Film Fest will take place over three nights at the CBC Radio Room. Featuring three films, all shot on Super 8 film, the schedule includes: The Here and Now (Friday, October 19 at 7pm), Journey to Echo Park (Saturday, Oct. 20th at 4pm) and Soundtrack Surprise (Saturday, Oct. 20th at 7pm).
