Our crazy year hasn’t just been about shots. We’ve thrown (and co-thrown) some fun events, made it into the top 20 in the CBC Radio 3 Searchlight competition for Best Canadian Website (!), covered a bunch of festivals and even had shots bought for us.

There are a lot of people we have to thank for making this year such a great one, but I’ll keep it short. Know that we owe a lot to you publicists, promoters, management, bands, and fellow bloggers. You have all been so amazing to us.

To show our appreciation, we’re throwing a party. We’ve set up a bands vs. blogs dodgeball event. Everyone is welcome to come and watch the fun. Bands and bloggers, let us know if you would like to participate in the event. For more details and to RSVP, check out the Facebook event page.

Thanks again to all of you! We hope you come celebrate with us!
