In the Hamilton Area Tonight? C’mon and Meet Up with Me

If you’re anywhere in the vicinity of the Greater Toronto Area, Hamilton-Burlington or Niagara and you don’t have anything going on tonight, I have an event at the Molson Canadian Studio at Hamilton Place.  It’s a thing I call Ten Truths About Rock.

It’s an informal lecture-slash-performance thing that I’m trying out in kind of a grand experiment in the tradition of Henry Rollins and Jello Biafra.  I’m planning to talk/rant/explain about things like Nickelback, backstage passes, the state of music and selling out, all with a healthy dose of improvisation and spontaneity.  And yes, I promise to leave time for Q&A.

Showtime is 8pm.  For information on tickets and to get directions, go here.
