Which means the music season in Ottawa is on. The Ottawa Jazz Festival has just ended... And that means it's time for the Ottawa Bluesfest for 2008 here in the Capital region.
Because I'm planning to go to GenCon Indy this year, and have been hoarding and collecting money for the convention trip, I won't be going to see a lot of the acts this year at Bluesfest unfortunately. :(
However, if you get a chance to go to the blues festival here in the city, do. The Ottawa Bluesfest is 11 days long, with some 200 acts performing on 6 different stages. This year's festival is going to feature everything from rock to rap, with performances from all sorts of artists ranging from Fergie and Snoop Dog to the Sam Roberts Band and Feist. It's going to be a pretty good party for about half a million people.
