Ok.  So most of us have had at least three days to recover from another year of Harvest.  Ready to get back at it?  As usual, there’s a lot of good stuff coming at us this weekend – even before the actual weekend, really. After seeing so many great Thursday lineups happening these days, we decided it would be a sound decision to start including some Thursday night options as part of this weekly post.  Let’s see what this weekend has in store…


Put on your dancing shoes. David R. Elliott is back in town, returning to Fredericton after completing a tour to Toronto and back.  Expect a tight performance. Joining Elliott for this show are Fredericton 90s-indie-rock-revivalists, Sentimentals; the most recent addition to Forward Music, Find the Others; and the solo debut of Fredericton musician Jane Blanchard. Sounds like a great Thursday night.  But wait, there’s more…
