I added this event to the WindsorEats Event Guide the other day and thought it sounded so freakin’ fantastic that I wanted to highlight it here for everyone.


The bands will play with 1,000 amps of power, which will be delivered by pedaling cyclists on stationary bikes and a green energy trailer. The trailer is equipped with wind-turbines and solar panels. The trailer was sponsored by http://windsorpowerhouse.com/

This will be the first Canadian concert that is completely off the grid; a demonstration of alternative energy and its many applications.

Students from the Green Corridor class at the University of Windsor present, “Rockin’ off the Grid” with blues-rock band The Tree Streets and local favorites Inoke Errati, March 31st, 2009 at 8:00pm. It will take place at the University of Windsor in the Basement Pub, 401 Sunset Ave.

What?! Powering the whole show by pedalling on bikes?? How fantastic does that sound??? I’m definitely going to try and check it out after class on Tuesday.

I noticed too that our friends at Bike Windsor have put up the poster for the event.
