3 Nights of Shows – Thurs to Saturday – Ottawa Showbox 5 Year Celebration and more!

Posted by on May 25, 2017 in test | 0 comments

Ottawa Showbox is celebrating five years! We’ve watched this city’s music scene explode since the website was founded in 2012, and we could never have imagined we’d be where we are today.

Starting off as a personal music blog, Showbox has grown into a crucial music publication and resource in Ottawa. We’ve had hundreds of thousands of readers over the years, and things are still heating up. Showbox has also grown into something bigger than just a website – we promote shows, act as advisors, participate in panels and music industry festivals, and more. For this we’re very proud, and it all comes back to one common goal: supporting local music.

Come celebrate with us over the May 26/27 weekend, we’ll be announcing some big things over the next few weeks. Keep your ears open for some news as we approach the big anniversary party weekend! We’re hosting TWO shows with lots in store and featuring some of our favourite acts in town. See you there!

RECORD STORE DAY 2017 – April 22nd

Hours 10AM – 6PM
We are continuing our tradition of showcasing local music, raising money for the Parkdale Food Centre, a store wide sale on everything in the store (20% off) RSD titles are marked up very little and wont be included in the store wide sale.
A draw for an Edwards Audio turntable package valued at $500.
Every purchase over $20 gets a ticket in the hat, Every donation of $5 to the Parkdale Food Centre gets you a ticket in the hat!
We have ordered a select amount of RSD Titles, early shipments suggest good fill. As usual no holds, 1 copy per title per customer. The cheapest RSD prices in town.
Our DJ for the day is TIMEKODE DJ Alexandre Mattar (Zatar)
Doors open at 10AM, we are trying to place the RSD vinyl throughout the store in a way that will help alleviate bottlenecks and give as many people a chance at finding the titles they want.
Between 10AM and 2PM it is time to shop!!
We’ll be slamming Espressos, Dishing out Donna’s Cookies and of course continuing our tradition of Jo Louis’.
Our bands will start at 2pm.

2PM Colossus of Rhodes Trio
David Allen Ranger on Rhodes, Amanda Watters on Bass, Bruce Cawdron on drums. Amanda and David are musicians who live in our hood and David has played many times for us at the store. Bruce plays with Esmerine and was with Godspeed You! Black Emperor for many years, This will be an amazing set! Can’t Wait

3PM Nathanaël Larochette Plays Guitar!
Fresh off a 27 city European tour and well known for playing with Musk Ox, Nathanael has played in the store before, get ready for a mesmerizing set were anything can happen!
