Thanks to our friends at Sonic Unyon for letting us in on this little secret!

See you there!!

P.S. Check back to this entry for some photos from the day!

There was a fantastic turnout today on James North for the Supercrawl Pop-Up! It was a beautiful day for an outdoor show. Sorry for no Said the Whale photos – I was over at Gorilla Cheese and lost my prime spot in the audience (the “Sarducci” was delish!) But they sounded great, and I look forward to seeing them again at Supercrawl. Terra Lightfoot sounded amazing as always, and even played my favourite Dinner Belles’ tune, “Til the Dawn”. Her vocals impress me every time I see her play; I just love her sound.

Accompanied by Honouary Tour Member Krystal, I also finally got to meet Seema from This Must Be the Place! I had fun chatting with her, as well as another friend to the Tour, Kathy Woo. We ran into Mark from Dr. Disc who was nice enough to share some Sweetness Bakery cupcakes with us. We were spoiled!

Be sure to check out the full musical lineup on Supercrawl’s official website. I’m particularly stoked for Hollerado, Young Rival, and New Hands! I can’t wait! It will be an incredible couple of days (September 14 & 15). To get a feel for what you may be in for, check out my entry on last year’s Supercrawl. I’m sure this will be the biggest one yet!
