Guitaring in Saskatoon

Those of us that are old enough, especially those of us who are musicians, will remember H.E.L. Music on Broadway, which closed down at least a decade ago. I darkened the doorway there quite a bit, from taking guitar lessons at MTM School of Music upstairs to doing in store appearances with my band in the 90s. The Vinyl Diner occupies part of the upstairs space still, so it’s nice that music still floats around that building on Broadway.

Gaming Night Out!

By now you must have noticed that the geeks have inherited the Earth, or at least, they’ve taken over popular entertainment. One only needs to take a look at the television or Hollywood releases to see things from comic books to video games capturing our zeitgeist. And that trend hasn’t escaped Saskatoon, with events like Sask Expo, our own answer to ComicCon, being hugely successful.
