I'll play some new stuff, sure. But, it's the guests you should be excited for.
Like the extremely talented Ansley Simpson who's coming in from Toronto. Check out the Soundcloud here: https://soundcloud.com/ansleysings

I'll play some songs too. 

It'll be warm inside. It'll be great. You'll see. Trust me on this one.

feat. performances from contributor Tara Williamson and readings from The Kino-nda-niimi Collective (including lead editors Leanne Simpson, Hayden King, Niigaan Sinclair, and Wanda Nanibush)

Calling for pathways into healthy, just, equitable and sustainable communities while drawing on a wide-ranging body of narratives, journalism, editorials and creative pieces, this collection consolidates some of the most powerful, creative and insightful moments from the winter we danced and gestures towards next steps in an on-going movement for justice and Indigenous self-determination.
