I find it slightly interesting that Sum 41 is up for a Grammy tonight, but they didn't get any Juno nominations, unless I somehow missed them on that massive list...

Otherwise, the video Dallas did for CBC Kids is still awesome. It's cool that Arkells are finally going to get some exposure in the States.

And Pouzza Fest! The line-up is so stacked this year, it's just as good if not better than what is usually booked at the Fest in Florida. I wish Montreal wasn't so far away from here.

I might try and see illScarlett. It's been a few years. Not sure though, since the venue they are playing doesn't announce if shows are 19+ until a few days before the show, if at all.

Not right now unfortunately, but maybe some last minute deals will surface. Flights are $500 and that's more than I'd like to spend.
