LINDSAY, ON, Sept. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - Legendary rocker Kim Mitchell will
headline a free concert presented this Friday night at the Lindsay Fairgrounds
by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). Called 'Rock for Public
Services,' the September 26 event is one of a series of rock concerts that
CUPE Ontario is holding in cities across the province to celebrate and bring
home the importance of public services.
"This is our way of thanking people in The Kawarthas for their ongoing
support and dedication to preserving public services that are the bedrock of
strong communities," says CUPE Ontario President Sid Ryan. The evening is an
alcohol-free concert for families.
The opening act for the evening is DAME, an all-female rock group that
won two awards at the 2008 Toronto Independent Music Awards. They scored Best
Alternative Rock Band as well as Best Song for two recordings that tied for
the best song award, "Cyclops" and "Intervention." Ranging in age from 15-17,
DAME has been featured several times on CBC TV's George Stroumboulopoulos'
show The Hour as well as on Much Music and on YTV.
The concert starts at 7:00 p.m. sharp and is being held at the Lindsay
Fairgrounds at 354 Angeline Street South in Lindsay. Crowds are expected from
the Lindsay, Peterborough, Cobourg, Port Hope and surrounding area.
