Since moving to the Maritimes Sappyfest in Sackville NB has become a regular summer event for me. This year was more subdued, however, since I just went for the Saturday to sell at the zine fair in the Legion Hall. No less awesome though. Wandered a bit and soaked up the vibe but didn't really see any bands. Here is a picture of lovely Sackville:
I drove up with Claire Seringhaus to launch her new book of Dada-esque drawings The Blaring House. What a hilarious book! The room was abuzz. Or was that the heat? Reconnected with lots of folks, including Sarah Burwash (look for a future project from her) and the good folks at the Anchor Zine Archive in Halifax. Then it was off for my first ever visit to PEI. Now I have been to every province in the country. Bully for me. Here are the pix.
