Marvest takes over the Glebe this weekend

September 12, 2016 | by glebeadmin

Hey Buster! performs during Marvest last year at Kunstadt Sports in the Glebe.

Marvest is back.

When CityFolk headliners Bryson Tiller, Vance Joy and Basia Bulat wrap up their shows at Lansdowne this weekend, the party is really just getting started.

Instead of jumping on the bus and heading home, follow the eclectic sounds from Bank Street, and you’ll find a sonic route down the Glebe’s traditional main street, with dozens of free concerts popping out of stores you wouldn’t normally expect for a music night.

That’s the whole point of Marvest, it’s an off shoot street festival similar to Austin’s beloved SXSW that celebrates local food and music down Bank Street.

There are more than 50 local bands set to play in 15 different Glebe venues over the weekend –craft stores, hair salons, shoe stores, cafes and bars beginning Friday night around 8 p.m.

Venues include Wild Oat, The Papery, The Clocktower, FarmTeam Cookhouse, Irene’s Pub, The Papery, The Unrefined Olive, 757 Bank Street (pop-up), Aroma Espresso Bar, Lindt Chocolate Shop, BMO at Lansdowne, Whole Foods, Stomping Ground, Metro Music, Capital Barbershop and Mrs. Tiggy Winkle’s.

The weekend will see experimental rock shows, folk, singer-songwriter acts and a high energy hip hop show featuring Ottawa’s Buck N Nice and Halifax’s Jesse Dangerously.

The entire weekend will be harvest of local music and food in the Glebe, so don’t go home and go to bed this weekend after CityFolk, stay in the Glebe and get your groove on.
