Waterfront Wednesday: Great Big Sea

Loyal readers may remember that I spent a good deal of time in Newfoundland & Labrador during the summer of '09, so I'm really excited to hear this Waterfront Wednesday's headliners, Great Big Sea, a 17 year old band from Newfoundland. Newfoundland is jaw-droppingly gorgeous, gets mind-numblingly cold during the winters, and produces some of the best beer and rum I've ever had.  That combination (beauty + adversity + booze) has to bode well for the music.  

Rounding out the line-up are locals The Seedy-Seeds and the Ike Reilly Assassination. We know the Seedy-Seeds are good stuff.  Jury's out on Ike Reilly Assassination... I'm wildly skeptical when I read that he named his album "Hard Luck Stories" and that he's described as penning songs with "gritty realism."  We'll see!

Now that the weather has taken a turn for the beautiful, it's time you head out to the Waterfront to enjoy one of the best free things this city offers!
