Day 21: London Weekly Open Mic at The Wick
Location: London, ON
First off, tonight was THE most fun show of the tour so far. London folks showed a ton of love... just a great vibe at The Wick!!
The day started off in Toronto, where I checked out a seminar put on by the Ontario Media Development Corporation (OMDC). I ran into Andrew Vincent for the 2nd day in a row... I just can't escape Kelp Records!! Anyway, I don't quite qualify for funding cause my sales aren't at $50,000 yet.. haha.
From there, I endured rush hour traffic in Toronto to finally put a face to the name of B Mellow of the "Wax Jungle" show on CKMS in Waterloo. Over the years we bonded over hip-hop music, but also on fact we were both working on masters in Computer Science. Oh yeah, can you believe Waterloo students voted to cancel funding for their campus station!? Boo to those nerds!!
While I was putting up a sticker in the station, I realized there is just no escaping Kelp Records.
From there I drove to London, Ontario where I met up again with long-time friend Lise. She had so much fun at the show at The Wick, that she stayed right until the end, and she's usually in bed by 11 pm - that's how fun the show was! There were tons of emcees in the house.
