  • Hot off the release of his quadruple album 44 this spring, Joel Plaskett reunites with his former Emergency bandmates.
Joel Plaskett certainly does love this town—and if you were ever looking for proof that the feeling's mutual, how about this: Today, HRM Civic Events announced that the city's annual July 1 show will star none other than the King of Dartmouth, playing alongside his bandmates from The Emergency, streamed live from inside the Halifax Citadel. The coolness factor here is so off the charts, we need a new thermometer,  stat.

Also on deck? Performances by Mo Kenney, Ben Caplan, Reeny Smith, Jah'Mila and Owen O'Sound.

The show will be live streamed on the city's official Youtube channel, starting at 7pm. Let's tide ourselves over till then by watching this promo video:
