Help the Toronto Bicycle Music Festival Ride

The Toronto Bicycle Music Festival is looking for some crowdfunded financial help for their very cool and fun event on September 15th.

Please consider donating, or spread the word about their indiegogo campaign:

This is the third year we’ve run the Bicycle Music Festival, a pedal-powered, mobile music festival. It’s a free community event involving a series of outdoor concerts and performances on Sept. 15, all powered by bicycles! The P.A. for the event runs off of bike generators pedaled by the audience and all gear and instruments are moved between our park venues on cargo bikes and bike trailers by an awesome team of volunteer roadies. We ride as a group from one venue to the next and even have live performances along the way!

The festival features independent musicians from a variety of genres performing in beautiful park settings to diverse audiences. Families make up a big part of the crowd and you can usually find at least half a dozen kids dancing in front of the stage.  One of the best parts of the event is that it brings together people who you wouldn’t normally find at a music festival. Our accessible and innovative format draws in almost as many passers-by as folks who had planned to attend.

We’re trying to raise $1000 to cover some of the costs of putting on this free festival, including renting sound equipment, buying food for our volunteers, and promoting the festival.

We’ll be taking donations at the festival, but raising some money ahead of time will help make sure the festival happens.  Think of it as buying your ticket to a great festival!

Any donation of $10 or more gets you a big hug from our Festival Director, James Davis.  Donate more than $50 and you’re invited to our official after-party!

The Bixi Anthem

Thanks to an email we just received from Patrick Guay of the Montreal band Da Gryptions, I present to you the video for their “Bixi Anthem”, which is getting popular on YouTube recently thanks to postings about the band and the song by Spacing Montreal, Momentum Magazine, the Montreal Gazette, and the National Post.

Patrick (the guy in blue – and I must say I LOVE the old Expos gear!) says they are planning to do another version and video when Bixi lands in Toronto next spring!
