CMW PASS- $50

-One thing you definitely can’t forget about CMW, is the all access pass. This wristband gets you into all 50 shows this week, and also gives you access to the CMW Film Festival at NFB Cinema.

KODAK ZOOM DISPOSABLE CAMERA $10-$15
available at Shoppers Drug Mart. or 7/11 or anywhere really.
-Everyone wants pictures of their favourite bands performing live, but let’s face it, we’re not all about to lug around a camera worth more than everything we own combined. So why not opt for Kodak’s disposable camera, with zoom, in case you get there late and end up behind a couple hundred other people, ahem.
So, you have all the necessary tools to get through CMW, now you need somewhere to put it all! This bag is big enough to fit your camera, your makeup and perhaps a little traveler, or not.
