Derek, *everyone* is interested in Edgefest! ;)  There are people from
all over the country and from the US as well who want to go.

Then how do you explain the TV commercials for the Ampitheatre which
show Sloan on them?

The dates for Bryan Adams, Edgefest 1, REM, and Blue Rodeo have
already been announced, obviously.  Heck, the Blue Rodeo show's even been
advertised in papers here in Ottawa!  The all-Canadian Edgefest will
most likely be held on Canada Day (an obvious day, wouldn't you agree?),
much like the very first Edgefest.  See, if you notice, most of the
bands in Edgefest 1 are British, and lo and behold, the concert falls
on the weekend we celebrate Queen Victoria's (who was British) birthday.
Go figure.....

I don't think there's any need to worry about this.   There's still
plenty of time.  Tickets for last year's Edgefest didn't go on sale
until June.

But people's houses are even cheaper!  That's why I've got a whole
bunch of people staying at my house.  :)
