Saturday night at Budweiser Stage was my 11th time seeing the Arkells perform their magical tunes. This, however, was the first time they performed with an NBA Champion as Max and the boys welcomed Raptors head coach, Nick Nurse to the stage for their Motown set.
What a time to be alive.
As we were driving to the show, we were discussing who from the Raptors may be in attendance. Never did it cross our minds that coach Nurse would be the one and not only would he be in attendance, he rocked out like a fucking boss.

The Let’s Go Raptors chants as he left stage right, was a moment I’ll never forget. Thank you to the Arkells for another Saturday night in a world of possibilities. Your music is everything.
