My name is Jesse Dangerously and I am a sort-of renowned rap nerd (I resist the label Nerdcore, but I appeared on the MC Frontalot song that gave the scene its name, plus toured with mc chris and appear along with Weird Al on MC Lars' new album... so there's my nerd cred, I guess?). I come from Halifax but Ottawa is my home now, and I want to tell you about the awesome Canada Day show at Zaphod's next week, where I'll be performing along with a bunch of other great local bands (I am the only rap, but am I the only nerd? Can't say for certain.)

From Indie Rock to Hip Hop, Melodic Pop to Alt.Country, Zaphod's Annual Canada Day tradition features a stellar line-up of Ottawa's musical talent, including bands and djs. Its always a fun time, far from the madding crowd; as the laid back atmosphere of Zaphod's takes on a festive air. Locals, tourists and long-lost friends come together to celebrate arguably the best country in the universe, at the best club in the universe!
A humble celebration of a country that prides itself on the principles of diversity, tolerance, peace, happiness, sharing and caring.
"I am one of the coordinators at the Women’s Resource Center at the University of Ottawa. I have always really enjoyed coming to Zaphod’s and I think part of the reason for this is the fantastic policy that you have hanging in the entrance to the bar and the way it is enforced by the staff. I first wanted to thank you for this, the kind of respect for women that is demonstrated by both the policy and the staff’s action is unfortunately rare, especially at bars."
