Treaty relationships and responsibilities on Mi’kma’ki means coming together with love, friendship & respect to take care of Mother Earth & all our relations, using our shared gifts as Indigenous and settler peoples. It also means refusing & resisting colonial ways. #peaceandfriendshiptreaties #msitnokmaq

We recognize that with COVID, live music and events can be another layer of unsafe for many folks. We will create alternate offerings to this IRL space and be transparent about the steps that we are taking to create a safer bar environment.

🧚🏻All advanced ticket holders will be emailed with reminder to test before gathering. Folks purchasing at the door (if still available) will be asked if they have tested.

🧚🏻When not drinking or eating, wear your mask. Masks and straws will be provided.

🧚🏻Our HEPA will be working her magic before, during, and after the event to clean the air up and staff will be cleaning and sanitizing throughout.

🧚🏻Do not come to the event if you have symptoms, even if your test results are negative.

🧚🏻Be mindful of COVID impacts and keep yourself and others safe from the spread while also having fun and keeping your heart and mind healthy. OK?

We know that some of you won’t be able to come and want to bring you so much pleasure and joy outside of this IRL event. We will share…
