I don’t know how anyone can say summer is not the absolute best time of the year?! Cottages, patios, sunshine, music festivals…. the list goes on and on. What’s your favourite thing to do in the summer? The feeling of driving with the windows down, and your music cranked – feels great, doesn’t it?!
Speaking of music festivals, have you been to any this year? Osheaga is coming up on the August long weekend in Montreal, as is Lollapalooza in Chicago. Edgefest 3 is Aug 16… but NOTHING beats a free festival! The Y108 Rock N Roll Picnic is happening on Saturday August 9th at the Ancaster Fairgrounds, part of the Festival of Friends, and yep – it’s free! Finger of Eleven will be there, among others. We’ll see you there!
Speaking of festivals and live music, there’s been some great shows already this year. Check out some footage I took at the Sound of Music Festival HERE, and video from an Arkells secret show HERE. There are some other snippets on my Instagram too.
If you do go to a show this summer… probably best to leave your four month old baby at home…. don’t do what this idiot mother did:
The other great thing about summer is hanging out on a patio with your pals. I bring the show to Stonewalls on York every Friday from 2-7pm for the Brian West Patio Party. Penfold will be filling in for me for the next 2 Fridays while I’m off though. Are you a beer drinker? If you misplace that opener, here are 21 ways to open a beer… not sure about the belly button one! CLICK HERE to see what I’m talking about.
If you’re looking for things to do with the kids this summer…. why not get out to a ball game. Ticats (who will hopefully be in the new stadium mid August), and The Blue Jays are great options. I’m going to the Jays / Red Sox afternoon game tomorrow – so watch for me on the Jumbo Tron! ha.
Another option is that Ripley’s Aquarium. I’ve heard it’s pretty cool… I’ll let you know, I’m going to check it out with my daughter and nieces on Monday. Have you been? How was it?
Whatever you’ve got planned for the rest of the summer – ENJOY IT! And bring Y108 along… listen anwyhere at player.y108.ca
