We’ve been working on this Halitrax blog/media platform for three whole months. What have we accomplished? Lots, I’d say (if only from a selfish perspective).
But lately I’ve been feeling out of the loop, community-wise.
It seems a bit silly, considering all of the things that have happening in town. Free jazz concerts, Pride week festivities, and movie screenings on the water front. Activities abound!
It’s just that I haven’t been talking about them. I can start now.
I went to this one show at The Halifax Jazz Fest:
Colin Stetson, Jerry Granelli, and Jay Clayton
It wasn’t the most accessible. That’s no presumption about your musical taste; the tickets were expensive (by my standards). The show was mind blowing and well worth the cost, by the way. But I’m here to promote free/cheap events around the city. So I’ll move on.
(But really. He’s on tour with Bon Iver for the next few months. Try to finagle tickets or just buy the album shown above.)
Moving on, for reals.
What about alFresco filmFesto? Watch Bill Murray classics on the waterfront by donation. There’s a chance he may even show up in person. As ridiculous as that seems, he’s an interesting dude who likes to have fun with strangers. Look into if you want.
Tunes at Noon has been happening for a while. It’s a free noon hour (12:00-1:00) concert series. Shows are three times a week until early September. It showcases the CBC friendly, though diverse, local talent.
There’s all sorts to do. Especially if you like being outside.
