HPX ’11:: Herohill BBQ & Showcase!


Wait, have we gotten to this point, a mere two weeks before the 2011 Halifax Pop Explosion, uhhhhh, explodes out of the gate without posting on the almighty Herohill showcase? It appears that we have, but that’s a wrong we’re obviously righting at this very moment.

 

But we can’t talk about the showcase without mentioning the very exciting fact that we are involved with something else very exciting this year: The Saved By Vinyl, Kelp Records & Herohill BBQ being held at the amazing Company House on the afternoon of Saturday, October 22nd. There will be music from Jon McKiel, Deadhorse, Chris Page and perhaps some special guests, food provided courtesy of the great folks from Saved By Vinyl & Kelp Records, and your boys Bryan and Shane from the hill will be in the house, so I don’t see why you’d miss such an event. After all, this kind of thing is routine at events like SXSW and since the Ack and I have given up on ever getting to Austin, we jumped at the chance to play a small part in a SXSW-style event here.

 

But before you hit the BBQ on Saturday, join us at the Company House on Friday night for the Herohill Showcase. Now this year we went with a crazy new idea for our showcase: select 4 acts we really like. We’ve tried other approaches in the past: reunite much-loved canrock duos, choose hot upcoming acts from Halifax and beyond, pair wildy varying styles of music on one bill, but this year we kept it simple. The night will feature Daniel Ledwell, Adam and the Amethysts, Chris Page, and The Wheat Pool - all of whom we’ve talked about it darn near glowing terms at some point or another here on the hill. Will we see a repeat of last year’s event at the Company House where one of the acts called out the Ack and challenged him to a bout of Paper, Rock, Scissors? I guess you’ll just just have to come out to what should be an amazing night of music to find out.
