HPX 2010:: It’s On

HPX 2010

Well it’s here, the 2010 edition of the Halifax Pop Explosion has arrived. There’s a somewhat recently revamped schedule available in handy dandy, printable pdf format, so be sure to check it out before you firm up your plans for the week. As for tonight, while the opening night has seemed fairly light in the last few years, there are multiple options available to you on this Tuesday evening.

 

If you’re interested in rubbing elbows with the HPX swells, then the Citadel Hotel is the place to be for the Halifax Pop Explosion 2010 opening reception. It’s taking place in the swankily-named Wentworth Room and starts at 6pm, with performances by DJ James Reid, Snorri Helgason, and the almighty Long Long Long. And it’s free, so it sounds like win-win.

 

Those looking for full on, first-night shows, there’s a show being presented by The Coast at the Seahorse, and featuring local faves like The Grass, Andrew Watt and the Glory Glory, and headliners The Superfantastics. If that doesn’t float your boat, you can check out an eclectic show at Gus’, which is being headlined by infamous Montreal music scene vet and self-proclaimed “one man disaster” Mark Sultan.

 

So get out and get your HPX started. We’ll be at home resting our old bones for the New Pornos show and the latter part of the week, but check our Twitterz for HPX-related content throughout the week.
