Who do we have to thank for being able to see from-away tours by The Sadies, Mother Mother, NOFX, Hey Rosetta and Anvil? Sonic. How about Jill Barber and Michael Kaeshammer? Sarah Harmer? Ani DiFranco? New Pornographers? GWAR? Er... Tom Green? Yep. OK, sure, we can thank the artists themselves for coming, a few agents and organizers, but Sonic has been a big part of making music thrive here in Atlantic Canada, including their staff of artist managers, recording facilities and label. Our hats---and those of our readers---are off to them.
