#159BBQ2K14 – M for 159 Manning

May 26, 2014

The poster (center illustration by James Mejia of Hand Drawn Dracula Records) and tickets are ready for the 6th annual 159 Manning BBQ(s)! I dropped off tickets for both dates to Rotate This and Soundscapes. I would highly recommend buying advance tickets this year since the FB event for the 13th already has 623 people listed as attending and there’s no way I can fit that many people in my backyard.

I’m partnered with NXNE and M for Montreal for the June 20th BBQ, which among other things, means there’s an allowance for 50 NXNE wristbands/badges to gain entry that day!!

While the 13th is not “officially” partnered with NXNE, it IS the first official day of the festival (June 13th – 22nd) and since it’s been so great working with them pulling this all together, I will allow 20 NXNE wristbands entry into the BBQ on June 13th. Let’s call it an unofficial NXNE festival kick off party!!!

I’ll be moving the geodesic dome to the very back of the yard (NOT leaving it in front of the stage), and I’ve got a few large tents and tarps, so while I’m praying for beautiful weather for both dates like I’ve had the past 5 years (knock on wood), I’m prepared to make these parties happen rain or shine. Fingers crossed.

More details soon.

I was hired to take photos at Indochino’s Toronto pop-up store launch at King and Spadina yesterday.

I’ve gotta say they’ve got some nice looking suits, and $775 for a made-to-measure 3-piece-suit cut from their premium highest thread count fabric is a pretty solid deal. It’s a couple hundred less if you don’t go for the premium fabric, but duhhh it’s a suit. Get the premium fabric.

If April hadn’t been such a slow month for me, I’d be getting another suit there myself. For now I’ll stick with the one I had Greg Blagoev make me a few years ago. It still fits. Once I jog off another 4 pounds, it’ll fit me comfortably.
