Jacob Hoggard of Hedley at CHUM Fanfest

Preparing for fandemonium at FanFest 2012

Through an unfortunate series of events, this will be the first time in years that I’ll be missing most of Canadian Music Week this year, but I am glad to be going to at least one event tonight. The good people at CHUM FM have invited media to their annual FanFest concert at the Masonic Temple, and they’ve brought in a few notable artists, including Train, Hedley, Carly Rae Jepsen, The New Cities, Victoria Duffield, Marianas Trench, and Kristina Maria.

Blogging the 2009 Juno Awards: Part 1

The 2009 Juno Awards have arrived after an hour-long delay thanks to the Amazing Race. So, when the awards finally kick off, what are we treated to, but Nickelback opening the show, again, with pyrotechnics and singing “Something In Your Mouth”.
