Friday Fun:: Canada Games!!!

Canada Games 2011

I’ve been feeling a little flushed the last couple days, and I’d been wondering what was causing it. Was it the infernal chest cold that has had me hacking away for the last week and likely causing everyone who works near me to wish for my immediate demise? No, this was a different sensation, and I figured out what was causing it last night, Canada Games Fever!

 

If you’re not from good ol’ Nouvelle-Écosse, you might not know this, but the 2011 edition of the Canada Games (winter edition) are about to kick off here in Halifax and surrounding area tonight. This is a huge deal for many folks, and while I know little to nothing about it (I just found out they have the Biathlon in the Canada Games! That’s kind of awesome.), it still seems like an exciting event for the city. Exciting in part because there will be a number of free shows taking place at Halifax’s Grand Parade (re-named “Celebration Square” during the games), with a number of rather well-known Canadian acts (most with local ties) gracing the stage. Oh, and The Trews will also be playing. haha, just messing with you The Trews, you’re great.

 

So then, if you’re here, or on the off chance you can make it to Halifax during the next two weeks, here’s the list of 7PM shows that will be taking place over the next couple weeks:

 

Feb. 14 The Joel Plaskett Emergency
Feb. 15 Sloan with special guest Grand DĂ©rangement
Feb. 16 Hey Rosetta! with special guest The Novaks
Feb. 17 Matt Mays with special guest Christina Martin
Feb. 18 Hawksley Workman with special guest Dutch Robinson
Feb. 19 Great Big Sea with special guest Jeremy Fisher
Feb. 22 Rawlins Cross with special guest The Divorcees
Feb. 23 Old Man Luedecke with special guest The Stanfields
Feb. 24 Buck 65 with special guest Rich Aucoin
Feb. 25 Radio Radio with special guest Three Sheet
Feb. 26 City and Colour with special guest Amelia Curran

 

Good luck to all the competitors, especially the Biathletes!
