Two popular Canadian bands are joining forces for a cross-country tour that includes a Nanaimo date at the Port Theatre.

Big Sugar and Wide Mouth Mason perform at the downtown venue Oct. 23, with tickets going on sale Friday (Sept. 16).

Wide Mouth Mason released a new album earlier this year, called No Bad Days. It’s not the only news from the trio, which welcomed Big Sugar’s Gordie Johnson as a permanent member of the band.

It’s one of two recent concert announcements from Got Pop Concerts. Promoter Andrew Roberts and his crew also announced comedian Jon Lajoie is making another appearance in Nanaimo, also at the Port Theatre, on Nov. 23. Tickets are on sale tomorrow.

Got Pop is also hosting State of Shock at the Queen’s tonight (Sept. 15) and Hollerado on Sept. 22. For more information, please visit www.gotpop.ca.
