CAKE MIX is a blog about music and culture based out of Ottawa, Canada. The focus will be to promote local talent and inform more people about various events around town. We are in no way professional critics… think of us more like that friend who always wants to bring you out to the bar down the street to see a band you’ve never heard. Maybe you’re that person too. We love those people.
If you’ve ever been to a really great show and spent the night wishing there was something more you could do to support the artist(s), you’ll understand. Maybe we can’t set up the next gig or cover the cost of producing the next record… but we can tell everyone we know to go see the next show or buy the new album when it comes out. So that’s what we’ll do.
What if I want to promote an artist/event?
Shoot us a message on tumblr (or tweet @cakemixculture) and we’ll take a look.
Hey everybody, guess what? There’s more great music happening this weekend!
Here’s a couple quick picks for you…
Friday (tonight!) is the grand finale of Live 88.5’s Big Money Shot. Kalle Mattson, Les Mosquitos and more will be playing at St. Brigid’s starting at 9:00pm. Tonight’s the night that one lucky band wins $25000.
Sunday should be a good one. The Crackling and Steve St. Pierre play at Raw Sugar Café starting at 8:00pm. It’ll be folk-rock, indie-rock sounds and we think it’ll be a great way to spend Sunday evening.
