We arrived in Ottawa around 3pm on Friday. We were welcomed with -30 degree weather – one aspect of Ottawa we don’t really miss. However, the University of Ottawa’s crew encouraged us to sound check outdoors as planned. We mentally and physically prepared ourselves for the brief sound check. Upon removing our gloves and attempting to play a song, our fingers were instantly frozen and our instruments refused to stay in tune. Unanimously, we admitted defeat and moved the party inside to Cafe Nostalgica: a small cozy haven unaccustomed to loud rock bands. With a roaring furnace and plenty of body heat, we succeeded in instigating a hot and sweaty dance party! Thanks to Cafe Nostalgica, Guillaume, Sara and Emily, and our Ottawa friends for a warm and memorable night!!!
