No, It's Fine. LP release show w/June Body, Goldbloom, Fungus
Friday 
Hali-rock gold No, It's Fine. describes its sound best: "Exactly the kind of music you would expect a Nova Scotian who visited Philadelphia once and then never stopped talking about it to make." Showing up early at Gus' for stellar spoonfuls of pop rock from Fungus, Goldbloom and June Body is a must.

SickWish Gala
Saturday 
Jeremie Saunders of the Sickboy Podcast (the Best of Halifax 2016 Readers' Choice award-winning podcast exploring illness in frank and funny interviews) was granted a wish as an ill child in 2002—and still isn't over how he blew it on a shopping spree at a local mall. Now, for his big 3-0, he's getting a do-over, sorta: This fundraising gala sees one adult living with an illness get the carte blanche wish Saunders had over a decade ago. A bucket list theme means the party will be a treasure trove of experiences for all attendees, with straight-shave barbers and on-site tattooing amongst the promised madness at the Museum of Natural History.
