NEW GLASGOW, N.S. —


NEW GLASGOW, N.S. – The 24th annual Riverfront Jubilee will once again keep the party going after the main stage closes with two late-night stages and a blues matinee on the afternoon of Sunday, Aug. 4. 
Each night after the main stage concerts end, the official after-parties will begin at both Wranglers Bar and The Spot in New Glasgow. Kicking off the late-night stage at Wranglers Bar on Friday, Aug. 2 is Nova Scotia’s own, Momentary Lapse: A Pink Floyd Show. Momentary Lapse brings the audio and visual sensations of Pink Floyd to the stage, delivering favourite moments from classic Floyd albums.
Launching the late-night stage at The Spot, on Friday, is the Randy Swallow Band. Musician, Randy Swallow, returned from British Columbia and rejoined Dave MacDonald and James Swallow to form the Randy Swallow Band. 
Hailing from Cape Breton island, folk group, Villages will take the late-night stage on Saturday, Aug. 3 at Wranglers Bar. New Glasgow’s own, StoneHouse will rock The Spot’s late-night stage on Saturday. This four-piece original rock band delivers an engaging live performance that blends the blues, funk and rock styles into an authentic new sound.
Local band, The Kitchen Criminals, will close out Wranglers late-night stage on Sunday, August 4. Sore Loser and The Bombed Solid will wrap up The Spot’s late-night stage on Sunday. Originally from Pictou County, now based in Halifax, Sore Loser is a cluster of young folks creating vibrant and versatile songs, an exciting and refreshing take on pop and rock. The Bombed Solid is a rock n' roll power duo from Pictou. Vocalist and bassist Mike Hiltz and drummer Eli Hollett take cues from trashy forebears like Motorhead and The Misfits as well as stony forebears like Kyuss and Fu Manchu.
Both late night stages will begin at midnight on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Cover will be $10, cash only. 
The blues matinee begins at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 4, and runs until 6 p.m. at Wranglers Bar. This year's event features local blues rock band Double Jim & Tonic. These five veteran Pictou County musicians bring a mix of original music and classic blues and rock.
