Halifax Is Burning :: S03E18

This week was a very special extended version of Halifax Is Burning. I had the opportunity to extend the show for an extra hour and half, so I took the opportunity to host an extensive preview of the Long Live The Queen festival, which is a new up and coming music and arts festival here in Halifax.

But before I got into that, some of the guys from The Belle Comedians stopped by to talk about their weekend show with Wax Mannequin.

Have a listen.

Halifax Is Burning :: S03E17

Shad is a Juno Award winner, a double Polaris Prize nominee, a cerebral poet, and one of Canada's most treasured musicians. Leading up to his show at The Paragon Theatre this weekend on Saturday, May 14, I had the opportunity to catch up with him via telephone to talk about his latest album, TSOL, the state of hip-hop in Canada, and the rolls he envisions his music can play in making a difference.

Take a listen.

Halifax Is Burning :: S03E16

If you tuned in last week, you may have noticed my absence in the 6:30pm time slot. That's because I was out on the road touring with my project Quiet Parade, but I was also on a post-rock adventure of a lifetime. I got to go see Mogwai and Godspeed You! Black Emperor in the same week. Talk about amazing.

In honour of this trip, I kicked the show off this week with a song from my favorite Haligonian post-rock outfit, Kuato.

Have a listen.
