Operation Manatee #109: No, You’re Last Minute…

JunoFest includes all events and performances outside of the main awards show. That’s all I had interest in attending.

I only had one night open, so I figured I’d better make the best of it. The most appealing show to me was at The Exchange. Doors at 9:00. Here’s where things got a little aggrivating.
