Thanks so much to everyone who came to our FIRST ever Saskatoon launch party! Thank you to all of our exceptional readers, from our new issue as well as almost every other issue, and to our amazing performers, Goose Lake (did you know they have a bandcamp site where you can buy their music on the internet — check it out!). Thanks as well to Amigos for hosting us, to our awesome untethered table volunteer, Simon Bohm, and to Shannon McConnell for taking some great photos! Let’s do it again, yeah?
If you missed the chance to buy a copy of the new issue, or any of our back issues, no worries — you can still do so on our website!
