What's going on?

Taking it to the streets 

WWWY is taking it outside for an afternoon of great music with our friends. Join us as part of an urban intervention that sees parking spots on Pape Ave. turned into a park as we play a front porch set. 

This is the second year Ben is running this little urban intervention with his neighbours, and it was a blast last year. And adding music can only make it more fun!

We'll be going on at 1 p.m., and will be joined by other friends for a great afternoon of music. See you there!

“I love your music! It really touched me and I kept saying, ‘I can’t believe this band isn’t being played on the radio and a record label hasn’t signed them up!’ “
