Today, I have a few reasons to shake the dust off my two typing fingers.
First, Joel Plaskett is playing a free outdoor concert tonight that you should probably go to. I’ll be working at the merch table, so feel free to stop by and say hi!
Pheromone’s Beast and MapleMusic Recordings’ Joel Plaskett are opening The Luminato Festival with a free show on Friday June 10th (that’s tonight!) @ 8 PM.
The concert will take place in David Pecaut Square, conveniently located in the heart of the Entertainment District.
As a matter of fact, as I’m writing this, Joel Plaskett is saying “Hi!” to all of my co-workers. Yeah, he’s here in my office (if you will all care to remember, I work at MapleMusic) signing records to be later sold on our website.
Second, let’s talk about NXNE!
Here are a few of the concerts that I’ll be checking out at the upcoming Toronto NXNE Festival. Yet another job perk is that I get my NXNE wristband for frizzle. Check out the schedule yourself and make your own dream NXNE skedge! (that’s phonetic/abbreviation talk for schedule. But really, it sounds like something you’d find inside your underwear after a frightening experience).
