Night\Shift 2017 lineup launch + volunteer social = Thu Sept 14th @ Goudies Lane

If you’re into reanimating alleyways, kick-ass live music, meeting new (and old) pals and helping out your friendly neighbourhood placehacking festival, save this date!

Walrus On Thursday, September 14th from 6:30-9:30pm at Goudies Lane in downtown Kitchener (between Queen and Ontario streets), Night\Shift Placehacking Festival is hosting a free pop-up block party featuring two live bands, the official reveal of the festival programming lineup for November 2nd to 4th, 2017, and opportunities to get involved as a festival volunteer.

This all-ages event in a mural-laden laneway (closed to cars for us!) will be headlined by the soul-blistering sounds of Halifax band Walrus , plus a TBA opening act.

Between sets, details about the 20+ amazing programming contributions to Night\Shift 2017 will be unveiled and organizers will be on hand to talk about how locals can help make this year’s festival happen.

Wanna RSVP for Sept 14th on Night\Shift’s facebook event right now?

As we ramp up to Nov 2nd to 4th, we’d like to share sneak peaks of how local 2017 artists’ projects are taking shape, so we’ll be looking for written or recorded Q&As with photos and/or short, slick video profiles.

Postcard & poster deliverers \\

By mid-September we’ll have a pile of posters and postcards that we’ll want to get on to walls that get a lotsa eyeballs and mailboxes or cafe counters within walking distance of downtown Kitchener. Do you like walks?
