Please God, Don’t Let It Snow In St. John’s

I’m hoping that (a) that last insult of a snowstorm marks the end of the April jokes for the long-suffering citizens of Halifax (b) over the course of this coming weekend those same citizens decide to leave their snow-bunkers to come visit us at The Carleton for some of our kitchen’s excellent food, our bar’s excellent drinks and our stage’s excellent talent and (c) the weather in St. John’s is better than it is here!


Yes, I’m off to the East Coast Music Awards in Newfoundland to see some great music, hang with some cool artists and industry friends and attend the various awards thingies that will occur over the weekend. The picture above is of the trophies we’ve won for Venue of the Year over our short lifespan. The blue ones in the background are from Music Nova Scotia, the two treble clefs in the foreground are ECMAs. We’re nominated again this year in that category and, win or lose, I’m there to represent the fine folks who work for us.

Wish us luck and, better yet, come to The Carleton, we’re waaaaaayyyy more than just the best live music venue East of Montreal…
