Light’s Out 2017 – Presented by Mill St. Brewery

SAT MAR 25, 2017
140+ Venues • 140+ Artists • 1 Hour

Lights Out is an event held during Earth Hour and is presented by Mill Street Brewery, Indie Week is hired to book and coordinate the artists performing for the event. There were five times zones, eight provinces, 130 venues and close to 175 performers as Indie Week showcased some of Canada’s best musical talent for a very special acoustic hour for Mill St. Lights Out 2017 on Saturday March 25th.

With the lights off, the candles lit and proceeds from every Mill St. beer sold going to Earth Day initiatives, Canadians from coast-to-coast were entertained for one magic hour.

Mick Davis started the party in St. John’s and the last chord of the evening was played by Helen Austin out in Courtenay, British Columbia. In the 7,600 kilometres between those two cities musicians strummed guitars, plucked violins and mandolins, played new songs and had audiences singing along to the classics.

Established Canadian performers such as Jerry Leger, Amos the Transparent, Great Bob Scott, Blair Packham and Chris Birkett entertained audiences as did emerging artists Angela Saini, Sam Taylor, Rich Cloke and dozens more. From country to soul to good old rock’n’roll all of the bases were covered.
