Nestled on the banks of the Ottawa River and surrounded by river locks and lush trees, the 177-year-old historical Thompson-Perkins and Bronson Pulp Mill was once the home of one of the largest lumbering operations; and remains Ottawa’s oldest surviving mill.
These days, the picturesque building and location provides the perfect home to Mill Street Brewery’s Ottawa Brew Pub and will host the newest, hottest and most legendary Canadian performers the fourth annual Hopped and Confused, August 23rd and 24th.
Headlining the mainstage on Friday, August 23rd will be the ever explosive July Talk and the dynamic Weaves, with rising singer-songwriter, Alexandra Maillot, and rising rockers, NOBRO, opening the night of music.
Saturday, August 24th, celebrated indie power-pop rockers, Sloan, will serve as headliners, while the imaginative Born Ruffians, the beautifully loud Cleopatrick and the wonderfully catchy Taylor Knox.
Tickets for Hopped and Confused are available now at https://www.showpass.com/hoppedandconfused2019/.
Born and raised with thoughts and aspirations of becoming a famous bassist in Sarnia, ON; Emily Plunkett now lives in Gatineau, QC, and considers National Capital Region home sweet home. A product of the Beatles, MuchMusic and the Southwestern Ontario summer festival circuit (circa 2000), her interest and love in concert photography came almost completely by accident when her journalism program at Algonquin College required courses in photojournalism (and she quickly realized that photos taken at concerts using a DSLR are enormously better than ones she was taking on a point-and-shoot she bought for a trip to England). She is extremely proud of the fact she has seen Sloan in some form or another 25 times.
