You can also expect to see Marianas Trench, Spin Doctors, Smash Mouth, and even Randy and Mr. Lahey from Trailer Park Boys at the show. Another free event is planned in celebration of Canada 150 on June 11, too! Keep an eye out for more about that day to be released on June 1.

Once upon a time, Mat studied journalism. That's how he became Alan's one-time intern and current-time contributor, and the rest is ongoing history - get it? Mat also studied biology and music, so he has a strangely specific knowledge set that doesn't really apply anywhere other than useless fun facts. He currently works for a music tech start-up in Halifax, and is a big fan of the em dash.
