Best Live Show In The Past Year

You gotta feel for the other contenders in this category. When up against a once-in-a-lifetime show on an island that is rarely open to the public, an island that is mainly populated by snakes, for god’s sake, mere concert venues don’t stand a chance. So it’s no ssssssurprise (‘cause of the snakes, get it? Please forgive me) that you chose Hey Rosetta! on Georges Island as number one. It was a fortuitous intersection of sunny weather, great planning on the part of Parks Canada, Tall Ships and Sonic Concerts plus some stellar indie rock. All we can hope for is a repeat performance next year.

Gold Winner Hey Rosetta! w/Ben Caplan and the Casual Smokers, The Lucy Grays on Georges Island

Silver Winner Black Lips w/Cold Warps, Monomyth, The Group Sound at Olympic Community Hall, Halifax Pop Explosion

Bronze Winner Purity Ring w/Southern Shores, Organ Magic, Club Stoic at The Marquee Club, Halifax Pop Explosion

For a couple weeks at this time of year, the blooming cherry trees on Park Avenue make for the ultimate photo backdrop in the city. But what’s the most photogenic location year-round in HRM?
