Or at least to the front porch! I usually post about an event after I’ve already experienced it. But this idea seemed worth a change in protocol, and since it may only happen once I thought you might want to know about it if you are in the Kitchener-Waterloo area.
On June 12th from 3-5 pm, residents of an uptown Waterloo neighbourhood will share their porches with musicians who will in turn share their music with anyone strolling by. What an ingenious way to bring music to the community, bridging private (porch) and public (street) spaces! This event is called the Grand Porch Party and is the creation of Tenille Bonoguore, managing editor of Alternatives Journal. The Grand Porch Party will celebrate the release of the journal’s first music + environment issue and is also being held on Canadian Rivers Day.

Exciting! So sorry I’ll be missing it, but we’ll have to find some equally cool jams to hit up as soon as I’m back 🙂
