Published Dec 15, 2008The seventh annual Stay Out of the Mall music festival is set to take place this coming Wednesday and Thursday in Guelph, ON, and according to its organizer is set to "be the most exciting line-up in the seven-year history of this festival."
This year's headliners include Human Highway this Wednesday (December 17) and the Constantines on Thursday (December 18). The two-night fest benefits the Canadian Cancer Society towards leukemia research, and was founded by Exclaim! assistant editor Vish Khanna in memory of his friend Sharon Marshall, who lost her life to the disease in 1997.
Both shows are all-ages/licensed and will take place at the Ebar (41 Quebec St.) in Guelph, with doors opening at 9:00 p.m. Joining Human Highway on Wednesday will be Baby Eagle, the Magic and Bocce, while the Constantines will be supported by Jenny Omnichord, Noah23 and One Hundred Dollars.
Tickets for the show are $10 with non-perishable food item or $12 without, with separate ticket charges for each individual night. All food items collected will benefit the Guelph Food Bank, while proceeds will benefit the Canadian Cancer Society towards leukemia research in memory of Sharon Marshall.
According to Mr. Khanna, "all but a handful of advance tickets for both nights have been sold out at the Bookshelf and Orange Monkey. These sales only account for about half the maximum capacity at the Ebar though."
Tickets are available at:
The Bookshelf - 41 Quebec St., Guelph
Orange Monkey - 005 Princess St., Waterloo
(non-perishable food items will be accepted at ticket outlets)
