A geek, a hot mess, and a goldfish named Duck.

The new web series “You Again” follows the toxic & hilarious relationship between recent exes, but now roommates, Audra (Andrea Kile Peterson) and Zander (Zachari Michael Reynolds). Yep, this junk just got real. Real real. Audra, is a dark alluring hot mess, free spirited & attractive, but what would a character be without baggage? She can’t hold a job, or a relationship & has questionable food cravings. Zander is a gaming geek, with boy-next-door good looks, who’d rather spend his evenings showcasing his avatar manliness via virtual sword play, but unfortunately he fails to conquer the real world as triumphantly. Now they have joint custody of a helpless goldfish.

Ohhh man you guys, Queens of the Stone Age bowed down and the Rolling Stones live up to the legend according to the stories I heard backstage with The Sadies and 54.40 LIVE BACKSTAGE at Ice Jam!

Seriously, this was such fun. I can't thank the organizers enough for bringing me back for the next round of bands! Woohoo!!

www.riverfestelora.com for tickets to the summer show babies! I hope to see you there :)

Did you know Elora, Ontario is only 1 hour from Toronto? If you know where you are in relation to Toronto - do the math and I will see you there. Did I mention they have microbreweries and the best food trucks on earth? Oh and just like 45 of the best bands possible gathered for a single weekend of sheer musical summer bliss. 

Oh I am kind of a fan. See you there!

Odario G Williams can tell a story you guys. So much so that after I sat down with the frontman of Grand Analog following their set at Ice Jam Music Festival, he was telling me about heading to Toronto to literally tell a story on stage at the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival. Like, I mean among professional comedians, that should put into perspective the ease with which this kid can talk about anything, anywhere. We caught up backstage with him and the rest of the group: Warren Bray, Ofield K. Williams and TJ Garcia and touched on Montreal's party-city status; what being on time means; and coincidences that create stories all on their own. This episode also features Grand Analog's music, so get ready to dance.

Enjoy :)

Ice Jam is the winter music festival brought to you by the lovely Riverfest group who produce the summer festival my first three episodes were taped at. They know their music, they know how to put a great show together and they let THIS little podcaster backstage to capture it all!

Episode ONE: Madison Galloway is a local performer and was the opening act. Read all about this little musical wonder at www.madisongalloway.com and enjoy her telling a story about lost passports and the hilarity that ensues when putting a band together at the last possible moment.

Joni NehRita was born in Toronto and now lives in Guelph and GIRL CAN SING man, like woah. Read all about her here: www.joninehrita.com and hear here on the podcast telling me about what it was like growing up Jamaican-Canadian in Toronto and making the move to smaller city life :)
