Since this is coming up quick, I thought I'd bump it up.
Anyone have a schedule of events (when the bands play, etc)? Want to know what I can see when I'm done work.
NEW YORK – International rock legends Bachman & Turner, platinum-selling rockers Three Days Grace and Winnipeg-born rock band Inward Eye will perform as part of the 2011 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off™ season-opening hockey and entertainment festival at "The Forks" in Winnipeg, October 6, the National Hockey League announced today.

Whats wrong with that?
Dont like the thread, board, or site? Ignore it.
No one is forcing you to be here
I thought these were lyrics to a Nickelback song for a second.
