Kelly Marino’s Pick – Bandwich
August 26th at the Somerset Pub ($5)
Local 107.3 holds the 2nd annual Bandwich at the Somerset Pub this Friday August 26th. Bands are formed by draw and have one week to prepare a set with folks they may never have played with before. Cover at the door is $5. You will receive 5 ballots to vote for your favourites, but additional ballots to vote can be purchased at $1 a piece throughout the evening. All proceeds for the not for profit CFMH Local 107.3 campus and community radio. Rumor has it 2 out of 3 bands have no drummer. What mayhem! What excitement!
Chuck Teed’s Pick – Jessica Rhaye and Ryan MacGrath
August 26 at Vintage Bistro ($12/$15)
Jessica Rhaye hasn’t grace a lot of stages as of late, so this will be an excellent chance to catch her live. And, with the show taking place in her hometown of Hampton, you can expect an attentive, appreciative audience. Joining her on stage is Ryan MacGrath, a savvy songwriter – check his latest album Cooper Hatch Paris for proof – with three-ECMA nominations under his belt. Gas up the car and make your way to Hampton for this one, folks.
