NW CanCon Monday, May 26, 2008

Announcing: NW CanCon, the ultimate resource for Canadian Music in the Pacific Northwest.

I just wanted to let you know about a new project I've been working on for a couple of weeks, called NW CanCon. It's technically a blog, but it will play more like a website. Maybe someday I'll give it its own domain, but for now it's hosted over on Wordpress for two reasons: mostly so I can try it out, and also because they make it easy to do web pages.

Anyhow, the main point of the site is to keep tabs on upcoming concerts and appearances by Canadian bands and musicians in Oregon and Washington. Hopefully we'll be able to put some photos and interviews up there too. As a side benefit, I've compiled a list of all the current Canadian acts I can come up with, including links to their official websites. I have a list of defunct acts as well, which will be up there eventually.

If you know of an upcoming show in the area, or a band that I haven't listed please let me know.

What an awesome idea!! Can you compile a list for Phoenix too? I doubt I'll ever get the chance to see Blue Rodeo here!

I'm glad you like the idea, I hope others will too. It would be nice to do the whole country, but it's going to be plenty of work for me to keep up with the goings-on around here.

I recommend going to the Great List to find band(s) you might like to see, then checking their tour dates--for now, at least, that's how I'm getting the information.

Oh, and Blue Rodeo will be playing at the Rhythm Room in Phoenix tomorrow night (May 27).

Ahh! I wonder if Lila would enjoy them?

Hey Matthew,

No problem at all. Thanks for visiting. Good luck with the new CanCom site. That should be a fun little side project!
