Special guest performance by Fraser Doors at 9pm. Showtime 9:30pm. Tickets: Pay What You Can, Suggested $10 The DoneFors are: Janine Stoll - voice/guitar Paul MacDougall - voice/guitar Liam Smith - voice/bass Brian Lahaie - drums Since the release of "Award Winning Album" two years ago, so much has happened in the lives of The DoneFors. A cabin in the woods, a thriving animal rescue charity, collaborations with other great musicians, two beautiful marriages, the birth of a perfect-as-can-be baby, and now we circle back to give some more love to a project that we love so much. Made largely in-house with additions from some industry heavies "Lush Life Below the Poverty Line" is a couple years in the making. We are so proud of this new album and of everyone who lent their talents to make it such a force. We can't wait to share it with you all. After a long while in the vault, "Lush Life" finally gets its time in the spotlight. Please join us to celebrate!

“The Donefors took the stage (after an opening act) shortly after 11 pm and didn’t disappoint, playing a variety of music from their first album (How to Have Sex with Canadians), their cheekily titled new release Award Winning Album, and other tunes. The space was packed, there was a party vibe and, though there was room to squish in a few more people, it might not have been comfortable to do so. So – what made this show such a hit with the crowd, and why was it so full? A few things come to mind. First, the music is top-notch (in my opinion, but also according to The Globe and Mail, which gave the new album three stars out of four). The musicians are approachable and have a great stage presence. They make good use of social media, and, given the title of their new CD, they clearly have a good sense of humour. In other words, they seem to be doing a lot of things right. That said, the venue was small; how would they have done in a larger room?”
