In December 2008, 10 artists made the short list for CHRW's 2008 Local Album of the Year. Observant readers might even remember a post I wrote to commemorate this accolade. Great news then that on Friday March 20th, CHRW (Radio Western) are presenting winners Olenka and The Autumn Lovers along with nominees James Cummins and his Bloom Band, and Fraser in concert at the Aeolian Hall in London.
Only one week left to get pre-sale tickets for this show: Cost is $15 ($20 @ the door) and available at a number of locations:
CHRW Studios, Room 250, University Community Centre OR online at the CHRW store (after purchasing tickets, simply print the receipt and bring it to the show for entry)
InfoSource in the University Community Centre
Aeolian Hall (or online at their website)
Grooves Records, 353 Clarence Street,
The Village Idiot, 135, Wortley, Wortley Village
L'Atelier Grigorian, 620 Richmond Street
This event is also a fundraiser for CHRW to help subsidize several worthy projects that include: Revamping their production studio with a Mac Pro and an Allen & Heath mixer, replacing their tube transmitter with a new solid state one, hiring a full-time News, Sports & Spoken Word Director, and the development of a new website. All of these projects are being undertaken to ensure CHRW hosts can continue to promote London & Western events and artists.
Be sure to come out to support these great local artists and enjoy one of London's best live venues, the Aeolian Hall, Friday March 20th. The event is licensed and all ages, doors open at 7:30pm and the show gets underway at 8:30pm!
