What is a Snorri, and why does it need a fundraiser? As it turns out, Snorri is actually a student exchange program for young people of Icelandic origin, and so the funds collected from this night are going toward the program. In a way it made sense that I ended up at this event, not because I'm or Icelandic origin or anything, but because I've had a lifelong obsession with the idea of travelling to Iceland that started back when I was a kid and liked to look at maps. Aside from not being Icelandic in anyway, I also fall (way) outside of the exchange program's definition of "young", so I'm really not at all eligible, but at least for this night I was able to imagine the sights of Reykjavik while listening to some Canadian music played by bands with some sort of Icelandic connection. The evening featured Sigrun Stella, Lindy (of Major Maker), Infighter, and Mackenzie Kristjón.

Lindy

I'm not sure how Lindy Vopnfjörð got roped into this... oooh wait, now that I attempt to read his last name out loud, I get it. Before one particular song, Lindy told a story of Icelandic immigration and the route taken to Winnipeg.

Mackenzie Kristjón

Backed by dual drummers, Mackenzie Kristjón closed up the show with what was clearly the most eccentric performance of the evening; there was even a short intermission for a bit of magic that included a levitating table. The band was billed as Mackenzie Kristjón, but as far as I can tell, the band name is actually Deathstyle. There was a comic book available at the merchandise table called Mac Attack that apparently is based on Mackenzie's life.
