The Polaris Prize gala happened on Monday. It was really great seeing some of Canada's best musicians play a few songs, meet Kathleen Edwards, and even though I am generally not great at keeping secrets I got to sign the winner's name on a giant cheque and totally kept that secret like some sort of mafia badass. Here are a few pics by Dustin Rabin that I snagged off the Polaris Prize facebook page. See more at https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151070399042233.455518.67619222232&type=3
My handiwork (kind of wanted YAMANTAKA // Sonic Titan to win
but was also relieved to have a shorter name take the prize)
Best part of the night: the amazing pole dancer Gary with Grimes
All the posters framed. Such good work by all of the artists!
