Ottawa Explosion Weekend!

This crazy party is less than two weeks away! It's going to be completely bananas and we look forward to hanging out with everyone! 

Are we the only festival in existence that uses blogspot? Probably so, my auto-correct just tried to switch it to "bloodspot". 

Check the whole schedule below!

OXW 2014: Band announcement #3!

Greetings Party Animals!


We are getting insanely excited for OXW 2014. It's getting close and we can just taste it! 

We've got some information for you!

1) OXW pre-party! We will be having a pre-OXW show happening on Wednesday June 11th. We couldn't help ourselves and we need to get the party started earlier in the week. You'll be able to pick up your OXW bracelets at that show and it will be free for bracelet holders. The bands playing the Wednesday show are included in the announcement below! 

2) Bracelets! You can still buy bracelets online: You can send a $60 email transfer to ottawaexplosion@gmail.com. ADD $2.00 each pass for PAYPAL transfers.Passes will also be available in person in Ottawa very soon! Keep your eyes open for our next announcement!

3) OXW Booklet! We're extended the deadline for ads for our 2014 booklet so you need to get your ad and $ in by Sunday May 4th. (May the 4th be with you lolz)  http://bit.ly/OXW2014booklet  

Alanna Why of Puker Nation/Finale 95 has organized a team of writers, illustrators & general awesome people who are contributing some amazing stuff to this thing (let's just say it includes a comic about Cauldron going to the beach). You can still fill out the official OXW poll which will be included in the issue! http://bit.ly/OXWpoll
