Torquil Campbell from Stars adds, "Stars are excited to play Halifax and even more excited now that the Occupy NS movement has set up camp in Parade Square. We're happy to move the concert to show support for the movement and to ensure that the camp is not disturbed in any way by our performance." 


Starting on Tuesday, October 18, the Halifax Pop Explosion has already seen record attendance during its opening two days. Taking place at 20 venues across Halifax, NS, the festival continues until the 22nd and features performances from internationally acclaimed acts such as Fucked UpJEFF the BrotherhoodDan ManganChad VanGaalen, and The Thermals.
