There ain’t no party like a Green party party

Everyone in the Toronto area should come to the Hockey Hall of Fame this evening to welcome Elizabeth May as she completes the first leg of her nation-wide whistle-stop tour (click that link for a very cool website that lets you follow the trip so far). I have the honour of being the master of ceremonies at tonight’s event. Details below, see you there.

Tonight’s Performances

I’ll again be appearing on “Focal Point with John Taylor” live tonight from 8pm to 9pm on Rogers Newmarket. Why do I keep doing these Newmarket shows? My grandma lives there, that’s why.

When the show’s done at 9pm I’ll be heading up to The Last Class at Georgian College in Barrie where I’ll be playing guitar and singing songs until 1am as part of the cleverly named band “Steve and Chris and Alex.” Seriously.
