Festival of Hope

We all have a little music lover in us and if you read this blog, chances are you are home to a heart that loves helping people.

This weekend, Breakdown Magazine presents the Festival of Hope, a 3 day charity music festival supporting CHYM FM's Tree of Hope at the Little Bean Coffee Bar in Kitchener.

Friday Dec. 14, 7 pm.

While it may not be my fave genre, metal has a huge following in the Region and local bands The Intake of Glass, Abide, Unlimited, Great Lakes are happy to oblige their fans with emphatic beats and experimental distortion.

Saturday Dec. 15, 5 pm.

All Systems Go, Terrified and Alive, Keep The Change and of course, my favourite Guelph rockers, Delhi will be shaking the walls of the Little Bean with colossal talent and some hard-edge music guaranteed to please your ears.

Sunday Dec. 16, 7 pm.

A solid night of relaxing and listening to the sounds of pure music, featuring Toronto's Dane Hartsell, Marty Oblak, The Dean Project, Quite Articulate, Nick Mower, Katy Warren, Sarah Bernardo, Adam Evers and The Smile Case.

Sunday's acoustic night will also feature an art gala with presentations by artists from across Southern Ontario.

Entrance is $5/day with a donation of a new, unwrapped toy for the Tree of Hope. Tell me, where else can you go for a night of music with as many as 9 performers for only $5? 

So get yourself to the Little Bean, treat yourself and support a great cause this Christmas.
