About Nova’s Junction Revue
Michael Novalski began Nova’s Junction Revue in 2019 as a monthly live music series at Junction City Music Hall showcasing emerging independent musicians. However, in the summer of 2020, the social restrictions imposed by COVID-19 closed music venues and Novalski turned to the laneway behind his house on McMurray Ave to host ten small-scale live performances for neighbours. Each performance was recorded on a reel-to-reel machine, filmed, released online and the response that summer urged Novalski to organize the first community-wide Mcmurray Ave Finale Concert. Novalski continues to organize shows all year round within the Junction and is proud to host the fourth edition of the annual event on September 9!
