We couldn’t be more stoked to be co-presenting the next instalment of the I Can’t Believe It’s Not series with Arboretum Festival on December 3rd. This time around, they have chosen to perform the seminal 1977 Fleetwood Mac classic Rumours, and what better way to do this album justice by getting together some of Ottawa’s best?
The familiar lineup includes Caylie Runciman of Boyhood, Rolf Klausener of The Acorn, Martin Charbonneau of Fevers, Mike Dubue and Pascal Delaquis of Hilotrons and Jon Hynes. The last show in the ICBIN series was covering Black Sabbath’s Paranoid, so this one is a total departure from that. Previous shows in the series also included The Strokes – Is This It and Nirvana’s Nevermind, and it seems to keep getting better and better. There will also be a pre-show screening of the Talking Heads documentary Stop Making Sense, which is an essential one to see for any music lover. Don’t miss your chance to hop on board and see this incredible album played live at the beautiful St. Alban’s Church.
We’re giving away a pair of tickets, so now’s your chance to score some free passes!
