New Canadian Not-for-Profit Online Music Store Goes Live Tonight

Weird Canada will their new Wyrd Distro venture this evening, the first-ever not-for-profit online music store dedicated to new and emerging Canadian talent.

This means a one-stop-shop for both fans and record stores when it comes to purchase physical product from a wide range of Canadian artists.

To prime the pump, there are a series of parties in every corner of the country including the far north:  Victoria, Vancouver, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Guelph, Ottawa, London, Montreal, Quebec, Moncton, St. John, Charlottetown, Halifax, St. John’s, Yellowknife, and Iqaluit.   If you want to see who’s playing at the gig nearest you, go here.

If you can’t make it out, you can either buy a limited edition commemorative cassette compilation or digital file/stream.
