In Pictures: More Spirit Fest

By David F. Rooney

There was more joy for Spirit Fest revellers this week, including lots of happy dog sled riders up on Nichol Road on Tuesday and Thursday promises to be a memorable day, music-wise, with performances by ABBA Again, Shane Philip and Delhi2Dublin.

ABBA Again is, of course, a tribute band focused entirely on the Swedish superband of the 1970s. They’re at the Performing Arts Centre at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $10 and they are, if you ┬álike ABBA, pretty good.

Shane Philip will rock the Last Drop starting at 9:30 pm. If you’ve never seen Shane live you’ll be in for a treat. At $15, admission really is worth every cent.

Delhi2Dublin is also playing on Thursday evening. They’re at the Regent’s River City Pub starting at 11 pm. Admission is $10.

If you’ve got the coin you can catch all three bands and enjoy one musically explosive event.

Meanwhile, here are a few photos from earlier in the week:
