1)Migration Songs In Print and Out Loud Saturday April 10th, 1-3pm
If you loved the striking cover image as much as the beautiful pages of Migration Songs you can bring your own t-shirt or accessory to the Roberts Street Social Centre where you can have Sydney Smith's image printed onto it. Author, Anna Quon, will give a reading and the Anchor Archive will be open for guests to browse.

Adam Fine will talk about the role of 'the bass' across musics, getting into a little acoustics/science, and maybe playing some funk recordings.
 
5) Crowd Control Sound & Art Fair Call for Participants
This spring the Obey Convention will once again present a special celebration of DIY culture. We are inviting local and traveling record labels, zine makers, screen printers, and other talented folks to show off their wares at the North St. Church on May 29th from 12-4:30pm. Besides lots of tablers, the event will also include DJs from CKDU and all kinds of live music. The fair is absolutely free to the public, so we expect big crowds. Tables are ONLY $15 and very limited. To book a table, please email crowdcontrolsoundandart@gmail.com.
