For our November issue we present our fifth and possibly largest edition of Sounds of the City. As part of the cover story, Kirsti Salmi catches up with one of the city’s most popular bands, Greenbank. We also feature nine local bands and musicians of various genres who we think you should see live or listen to. Plus we profile music teachers, archivist Richard Gale, and look at the history of Coran’s Music.

Also in the issue, we chat with Bif Naked about her Songs and Stories tour, which will stop in the city this month. And because it’s election time for our neighbours to the south, Stuff We Like features ideas for the American in Canada. Plus, who says there’s nothing to do during the drab month of November? In our film and theatre section we preview Magnus Theatre’s production Disgraced, Cambrian Player’s Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet), Paramount Live’s Sister Act: A Divine Musical Comedy, and Mile Hill Melodrama’s Nana’s Naughty Knickers.

November will also be the final month to vote in The Walleye’s Best of Thunder Bay 2016 Readers’ Survey. Vote for your favourites before the contest closes at the end of the monththere’s a lot questions in the music category (nudge nudge). So enjoy our fifth edition of Sounds of the City. As Debbie Coran states in the issue: “Music is everything. What would the world be without it?”
