Christmas Covers at The Capital

Category: music 211


INXS, The Cure, The White Stripes and others set to take the stage for The Capital Complex’s annual holiday food drive.

The Capital Complex has just announced the lineup for this year’s Christmas Cover Show, the annual two-part musical extravaganza guaranteed to bring everyone a little joy each holiday season.

For over a decade now, the popular downtown Fredericton bar has been challenging local musicians to pay tribute to a group they appreciate, all in support of the local food bank.

What started as a simple way to collect non-perishable food items for the Fredericton Food Bank has grown into an annual high-point for local musicians with rehearsals and rumours starting as early as mid-summer.

This year’s Christmas Cover Shows will take place Thursday December 15 and Saturday December 17 and once again, this year’s lineup is guaranteed to entertain.
