We made a lot of fuss about losing Block Party, but the merest rumours we’re hearing seem to indicate that Events Man Shea Dahl is on the ball for Welcome Back BBQ (free, Friday, Sept. 10, 2-8pm). The Totally Baseless Suggestion is that Celebrity DJ/Benihana Founder Offspring STEVE AOKI will be playing the Pit on/around the day (Sept. 12). We also hear GASLIGHT ANTHEM is headlining the BBQ, but refuse to believe in a band named after a drinking song commemorating the pre-gentrification population of Yaletown.
