Upcoming Events

This feels like the hottest summer yet, and it could just be how bitter the winter was that makes it feel this way, but regardless it feels amazing to be out in the sun. June was a great month, which capped off at the Edmonton Music Awards. It was beyond inspiring and humbling to see so many incredible artists and industry members assembled in one room to celebrate what the people in this city have accomplished.

Recently, I was asked what’s so great about the music scene in Edmonton. My answer was that there are so many wonderful things for us to be proud of. We have many thriving music venues, from huge institutions such as The Winspear or the Jubilee Auditorium, to legendary spaces such as The Starlite Room, to your local neighbourhood spaces such as The Aviary, Naked Cyber Cafe, Sewing Machine Factory, Cafe Blackbird, BRU, and Nook. Even this small list is the tip of the iceberg as far as places to go that will allow you to hear some amazing music made right in your back door.

I also talked about how diverse our music scene is from the genres you’ll find to the types of people you’ll see on stage. There truly is space and a place for everyone, and if there isn’t something already built for you, there is room to build and grow something all of your own.

I hope everyone is feeling as inspired this summer as I am to go out there, kick some ass, and take some names.

With Love,
Sabrina, Michelle, & Chris
