Onto some music news there recently has been a petition going around to stop the Canadian Government not to ruin live music with $425.00 charge per international artist per performance in Canada. What is happening is

any venues like bars, restaurants, and coffeeshops in Canada may pay four times more for international musicians as a new regulation says they will be required to pay “an application fee of $275 per musician and those travelling with the band (tour manager, sound person, guitar tech, etc.”) On top of that there is ”an extra $150 for each approved musician and crew member’s work permit.” And these non-refundable fees are for each venue that a musician may visit. This means that a lot of small and medium size venues in Canada will no longer be able to afford to book international bands. That means A LOT less live music in Canada. If you want to get involved with this petition or more information you can check out the petition HERE.


How to for the show is for the recreational drinking actives that may occur if you are of age to do so. Our how to was how to prevent a hangover. Here is the link if you would like to expand your knowledge of the matter. I’m going to list a few interesting tips they have.

– Have a spoon of olive oil

– Try “hair of the dog”

 

Summer problems of the show was Summer needs to go away. Lukis and I chatted about our enjoyment of Fall weather. I am in love with sweaters and boots so this humid weather needs to leave for I can wear my outfits!
