On Wednesday, February 15th the first ever Polaris Record Salon is going down at the Winnipeg Free Press Cafe.
Normally held in Toronto, the Polaris Salon is a forum where Polaris Prize jury members extol the sonic virtues of various Canada records they feel are prime candidate for inclusion on their ballots. Polaris Prize founder Steven Jordan will moderate the event while Polaris jury member from Manitoba put forth their picks.
Taking part in this first time event is:
- John Kendle (Uptown)
- Jared Story (Uptown)
- Jill Wilson (The Winnipeg Free Press)
- Jenny Henkelman (CKUW)
- And, despite my name not starting with J, me.
So if you're free on Wednesday night, come on down and hear us ferociously and tirelessly debate the records we feel are absolutely musts for this year's Polaris ballots. Ties will be broken by arm wrestle.
And I'm told there'll be prizes.
