Hadfield takes party into orbit

  • Print

Awards-show after-parties are always fun, but Warner Music Canada's post-Juno soiree turned out to be truly out of this world.

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield was the star attraction the Warner party at Hermanos, a Bannatyne Avenue restaurant in the Ashdown Warehouse in the East Exchange.

On a stage set up at the rear of a temporary restaurant expansion -- a former legion accessed by knocking a hole in an Ashdown Warehouse brick wall -- Hadfield performed David Bowie's A Space Oddity in a makeshift band with singer-songwriter Emm Gryner on keyboards and CBC Radio host Jian Ghomeshi on drums.

Other performers at the party included Winnipegger Fred Penner and former Winnipegger Luke Doucet, who teamed up to perform Cat Stevens songs.

Tegan & Sara, the big winners at the Junos this past weekend, also attended.

Hermanos plans to re-seal the brick wall, as the restaurant does not have a permanent occupancy permit for the neighbouring space.
