Can’t make it down to Charlottetown next week for the East Coast Music Awards? Don’t fret, you sad bastard — you can watch the ECMA Awards Gala in the comfort of your own home via live stream at bellaliant.net/ecma starting at 8pm on Sunday April 17. You can also watch “A Sound Celebration” — a concert featuring Symphony Nova Scotia and PEI artists Jenn Grant, Meaghan Blanchard, Paper Lions, Richard Wood and Vishtèn — via live stream on April 14 at 7:30pm.
If you’re feeling even more participatory, you can vote for the Bell Aliant Fan’s Choice “Entertainer of the Year” and the Bell Aliant Fan's Choice ‘Video of the Year Award’ at bellaliant.net/ecma or ecma.com. The deadline is Thursday April 16 at midnight.
Finally, if you're still like "Yeah, well, this is all really nice, but what I really want is METALLLL GRRRRR" the East Coast Loud Tour (featuring the Fed Pennies, Last Call Chernobyl, Orchid's Curse, Obsydian, Soul Seeker and Tempting Tragedy) will be touching down in Halifax this Saturday April 9 at Coconut Grove. The ECMA Loud Showcase takes place April 15/April 16th at Ise's Bar in Charlottetown, featuring the aforementioned bands as well as Nerd Army, Black Moor, the Motorleague and others.
Play safe. Have fun.
