Blue Rodeo Is The Perfect Valentine’s Date
It's that time of the year again. You're sitting at home, watching lovers holding hands, imagining the candlelit dinners, rose petals leading up the stairs, champagne bottles waiting by the bathtub ... You roll your eyes, thinking, here we go, another Valentine's Day lost to the winter blues. But then suddenly the clouds part, the sun peeks its rays out, teasing your cheeks. Out pops that cheeky little cherub with his arrow, gets down on one knee, and hits you with the proposition you've been hoping for. He pops the big question: will you go see Blue Rodeo with me?

It wasn’t until almost an entire year later that the conversion to smitten fan was complete, when I happened upon Tim’s promotional performance at a local radio station in Hamilton for the release of 5.01
Budweiser Gardens 2016 Year In Review
If there's anywhere in London that I leave an extra deodorant and a hair brush, it's Budweiser Gardens. It's a second home to me at this point and I don't know why I haven't brought my spare slippers yet...
