Please "Save The Dates" for the 7th Annual Canadian Blast Showcase & BBQ to be held at Brush Square Park as well as Canada House being hosted at Trinity Hall (formerly Paradise Cafe) at 6th and Trinity. Canada Stand at the newly revamped SXSW Trade Show will be the hub for exploration of new Canadian business ventures. Representatives from all over Canada will be available to meet and discuss music, film and interactive business opportunities.

You won't want to miss the ever-popular Canadian Blast Showcase & BBQ, which will host some of the hottest buzz bands coming out of Canada today. Past performances have included such as P.S. I Love You, You Say Party! We Say Die!, Hollerado, and Diamond Rings among others. Canada House is the centre of all music Canadian and past showcases have included great performances from Ron Sexsmith, The Sheepdogs, Adam Cohen, Imaginary Cities, and Dinosaur Bones. This year's performances will continue the tradition of showcasing up-and-comers as well as established artists demonstrating why Canadian artists are popular all over the globe.

We hope you will join us for the stellar performances and great Canadian hospitality that's become a hallmark of SXSW week activities. We'll be announcing the full line-up for both the Showcase & BBQ and Canada House very soon. So, mark your calendars and let the games begin!
