We’re been trying to organize this for a couple of years and are now happy to report that Maxim Cormier, along with his father Gervais, will finally play The Carleton on Tuesday, April 24th. Show time is 7:30 PM and tickets are $15. With any luck, there will be $10 student tickets available at the door night of show.
