The Vertical Squirrels will be playing two shows in Ottawa on February 24 and 25, 2012 as part of the Sound Changes: Music and Social Justice Symposium held at Carleton University on those days.
Friday night features the Vertical Squirrels along with Friendly Rich and the Lollipop People as well as slam poetry and spoken word performances in an opening event at the Raw Sugar Café, 692 Somerset St West, Ottawa (starting at 8:00 p.m.).
