City and Colour Live

CityandColourFeat

I used to refer to Dallas Green as kind of whiny. His music always seemed so full of angst and kind of sad – as if he constantly had a broken heart. After seeing him and his all-star band, City and Colour, on the Halifax Waterfront during Jazz Fest though, my opinion has changed…slightly.

Ria Mae is from the little-big city of Halifax, Nova Scotia and has had no problem packing multiple venues – be it dive bars or concert halls – since her hit single, Clothes Off, hit the airwaves last year. Mae moved to Montreal in the winter in hopes of being inspired and courted by the […]

The Regal Beagle Band Live

The Regal Beagle Band

That’s why I’m stoked that my little-big city of Halifax, Nova Scotia has developed its own – Halifax Pop Explosion (HPX).

Ben Caplan

Three years ago I moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia and what I was most excited to discover about my new home was how diverse the local music scene is. Halifax only has half a million people in it and some of my favourite concert venues obviously can’t compete with the likes of those in Toronto […]
