Time to Launch Summer 2014
Remember May 23, 2013? That was the day we launched Musical Underground Ottawa and the people wandering the Great Glebe Garage Sale found one house that was giving things away – specifically, a guitar.
I’m incredibly excited to announce that we’re back for 2014, and we’re starting in the same style: at 3 Second Avenue during the Great Glebe Garage Sale on Saturday, May 24, 2014. Not much has changed – the guitar up for grabs is slightly higher-end than last year, the audio quality should be improved, and the idea is the same: play us a song, and you get into a raffle for the guitar. And, of course, we’ll film the whole thing. If you’re new to this whole thing, you can check out the videos from 2013.
We’ll kick off around 11am, and all you have to do is show up.
There will be other chances throughout Ottawa, throughout the summer, to take part. But as busking – and reverse busking – is so weather-dependent, you’ll have to keep an eye on Twitter, this site, or Facebook to know when to catch us.
I’m also going to throw a curveball into the whole thing for one event – we’re going to go all out for one of the sessions. Stay tuned for details!
