Welcome to the 19th Halifax Pop Explosion!

HPX 2011 Day 1 - Tues, Oct 18

Well it’s been a busy year putting this together, and the day has finally arrived and what an opening day we have for you!  We’ve got some info in this newsletter that will help you navigate your way around opening night and make the most out of your HPX experience.

Box office opens at 11am at the Citadel Halifax Hotel at 1960 Brunswick Street.  The hotel will be the hub of HPX activities with daily FREE shows, poster art exhibit, receptions and conference sessions so come and visit us to pick up your pass and meet some new friends.

Box-office hours are 11am – 8pm.  ALL passes and wristbands must be picked up here.

Opening Reception our 19th birthday party starts at 6pm at the Citadel Halifax Hotel and is open to all who wish to attend.  We’ve got music from DJ James Reid, birthday cake and friends gathering to celebrate the 19th year of great music from Halifax Pop Explosion.  Come one come all and bring your sweet tooth.

Civic Garage Party featuring Zeds Dead, Keys N Krates and more is happening at the New Palace and if you didn’t score a free ticket from the Honda Facebook page come on down as your wristband/pass will get you in (subject to capacity).  The room looks amazing and will have new Civics on display with prizes being given away to those who attend.

Braids and Ohbijou
are playing at Reflections, which will be rad!  Make sure you bring two pieces of ID as per the venue policy.  Check out DD/MM/YYYY at Gus Pub, which is their last show in Halifax and one of their last shows ever! This is also the Alex Fountain memorial concert which will be a fitting celebration of Alex's life in music. If you’re into some sweet high energy Alt Country go to the Seahorse for One Hundred Dollars or go right next door to the Carelton for Bend the River if you're into smooth harmonies.

So there is your first night.  Small but mighty with something for everyone.  Get out early, enjoy some killer music and start your Halifax Pop Explosion off with a bang.
