At 7 pm last Friday (March 17) the first act took to the stage at the Earl of Whitchurch pub in Stouffville, Ontario, one what is planned to be the longest continuous concert by multiple acts ever seen in this arm of the galaxy. The goal? To raise money for 16 different charities, one per day of the project 16-day event.
But hold on. Sixteen days was the original goal. It turns out that there’s a similar record-breaking attempt going on in Michigan right now. The two organizers (Kevin Ker from Epidemic Music Group is our guy) have now vowed to continue until the other collapses. This has turned into a genuine Canada-USA battle.
Wanna watch things as they go down in Stouffville? The rules state there must be a 24/7 live surveillance stream. Take a look.
