Canadian Music Week 2017 Day 2
Two cups of coffee...check. Been to the gym...check. Read over the listings for CMW for tonight...check. Making a bunch of picks...not so easy.
Things are really heating up with oodles of venues and loads of talent. Always a hard job, but in the spirit of any festival, just close your eyes and point. Works for me.
PS for some reason the listings in the guide misspelled Wednesday. Guess the coffee actually woke me up.
