Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

THOUSANDS of bands.
THOUSANDS of friends.

We've been at it for 30 years so we are taking a weekend to kick off the celebration. June 16/ 17.

We're shutting down the street for the weekend. Gates open 6pm Friday, noon on Saturday.
Friday we reunite with 2 of our great lost loves...

Budget Motel - assembling from across the country for the first time in years... the band that started it all.

Far From Heroes - The first Sudbury band in a generation to break through... recording for Sony... the darlings of the new school punk scene of the late 90's/ early 2000's... second show in 10 years.

On Saturday We will recreate the Summer of Love with all your faves playing the summer of 1967...
Murder Murder plays The Grateful Dead
Whiskey River plays The Animals
JoPo and the RiZe plays Janis Joplin and Big Brother and Holding Company
Ox plays Jimi Hendrix
The Beatles Night plays The Sgt Pepper album in its entirety.
Northern Memphis Revival does Otis Redding.

and much more!! Acoustic acts in the afternoon. Games and fun.

If you don't have family in town anymore, we are setting a block of rooms at The Quality Inn (705) 675-1273.

June of 1987. The Desjardins family took over an old hotel next to the arena. Within a couple years, The Townehouse Tavern became the centre for new music in the community. In the following years this would herald a change for downtown... the centre of an arts scene. The spark that ignited Downtown Sudbury. Now we are sister restaurants, The Laughing Buddha and The Townehouse... 10 apartments, 25 student rooms, 240 patio seats in the summer, acclaimed food and atmosphere. Hosts of the Elgin Street Craft Beer Festival. It all started with The Townehouse, a love of rock and roll and wanting to be unique in this world.
