Friendly's Summer in the City

Look out, look out! Here comes a union of community and easy living on a May-time summer night ...Summer in the City takes us back to an old-style Canadian historical tavern with a nefarious reputation (and nefarious hygiene standards): the Silver Dollar Room. Be ready for heavy rhythms and cartoon-like characters who are into fun and better living.Featuring: Friendlyness (also called Friendly) and the Human Rights, Mar Aberto SoundSystem, and The Responsables as well as DJ Firecracker (who created the sunshine-loving poster below).Many will remember that Friendlyness and Mar Aberto SoundSystem as the live acts in the stellar line-up that killed it at an Uma Nota reggae party in 2012.Friendlyness and his crew are gearing up for summer shows and tours, and Mar Aberto SoundSystem has swung back into things with a recent show at the Empty Fest in Sarnia, alongside Maylee Todd and other acts.Celebrate the return of the heat with a night of hot reggae music, delicious food and good vibes! Keep up with things on the Facebook event and we will see you there.Poster by Angela Vargas (DJ Firecracker)
