Steven McKay + Doctor Ew + Wax Mannequin: Tonight in Kingston!

Hey Kingstonians!


Just wanted to drop you a little reminder about a very special show tonight at the Mansion!  (506 Princess Street)


Last time he played in Kingston was opening for Forest City Lovers in September.

The ever charming, Queens U alumni,  x-Grad Club bartender, Steven McKay will be singing you warm, sweet melodies from his new self titled album and making you laugh with his entertaining stage banter. His voice has been described as a warm blanket, perfect for these chilly nights!



The malpractice defender, Doctor Ew will be sharing the stage + a band with Steven.

The Doctor will make your heads bop, shake and roll with his super catchy pop tunes.

Doctor Ew is Drew Smith of The Bicycles, and has a new album called Gadzooks!



And the evening will finish off with the absurdity that is Wax Mannequin.



Here's what Bootlog is saying about tonight ::



Hope you can make it out tonight!

Talk soon!
