Peterborough Folk Festival | Evening Of Music | Sweet Night

1-ipod temp

I had a nice time at at the Folk Fest last night.  I really enjoyed Evening Hymns who was on the stage just after I arrived.  I also enjoyed the Great Lake Swimmers… but this band caught my ears.


I’ve loved “Arrows” and I’ve used them on a mixtape.  Jonas is the main songwriter and he is from Orono.  The group was founded in 2007 and has some of it’s members that play in other bands like Burning Hell and The Wooden Sky.  They played some new material that they just mastered and will release soon.  I’m looking forward to following this band… and I hope to find them soon at a little intimate local venue up here or in Toronto.


Little Lake Music Festival | Peterborough | Free Outdoor Summer Concerts

Thursday, July 18th, 2013


Last night “Walk Off The Earth” played a free concert in a little park in Peterborough to about 12,000 people.  These concerts happen each Wed + Sat.  It runs from June 29th to August 24th from 8 to 10pm.  Check the website to find the type of music that you feel like bringing a blanket or a camping chair to sit and listen.

Website with the line-up is here.


Another thing to make a yearly reminder each May to check out the line up for the year and add reminders to the dates you want to save.  Might check out Sloan on the weekend.

Open Roof Movie Festival | Toronto | Unique | Summer Goodness

Thursday, July 18th, 2013


Open Roof Festival is a not for profit, outdoor music and film festival providing Toronto with a summer experience like no other, highlighting independent filmmakers and artists from Canada and around the world. The Festival is a fun, unique experience that is more than just a party – its an evening of shared experiences. Of Toronto’s music and film scene. Of refreshments. And, of enjoying Toronto’s beautiful summer night sky with friends.

Follow them on Instagram:


Tonight is Molly Maxwell which is a great little film.  Synopsis: At Phoenix Progressive School, where everyone tries to outdo each other with creative self-expression, 16-year-old Molly Maxwell would rather be invisible than risk revealing herself as completely ordinary. When her young, handsome, disillusioned English teacher enters the picture and allows her to just be herself, Molly is suddenly able to flourish. As their student-teacher bond becomes more intimate, she begins putting herself on the line in unexpected ways while pursuing what she wants. But with each awkward, beautiful step towards an impossible romance, Molly risks alienating everyone she loves.


Not only do you get to watch the movie but there is live music each night there is a film.  Tonight is Bryce Jardine.  Then to fill your belly there is Food by “The Saucy Pierogi” and Kanto by Tita Flips.

So it’s down by the water in Toronto where you get Food (extra cost) and get to hear a live band… then watch a flick.  Tickets are $15 each.


If you can’t make the movie tonight… check out the August 25th Movie called “Kings of Summer” which looks really good…  check out the trailer below:

Check out the Festival online here for all the info and to get tickets.  They move it inside if it rains.


Also is a free outdoor Movie Festival at Christie Pitts in Toronto which is pretty cool for a free little movie in the park on a summer night.  Check that out too!  Something to set yearly reminders to check the website and just pencil in the movies you want to take in.
