Kat Chabot Live at Simmering Kettle & Dosti Eats!!

With phase 3 now in place, it allows us to have some fun and listen to music and have a meal with family and friends, all under the guidelines of the present day.

The Simmering Kettle and Dosti Eats in conjunction with Barrie Uncovered have arranged to put on a show for you. So if you are bored and looking for something to do, why not swing by and enjoy some great food and live music with Barrie’s own Kat Chabot? The event will be held at 531 Bryne Drive on Saturday, August 22, between 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm. This event will take place outside in between the two restaurants. So you have plenty of food to choose from!

Kat Chabot is a very popular local singer-songwriter from Barrie Ontario. Pre-pandemic days you could catch her performing all over Ontario’s Farmers Markets, local festivals, bars and restaurants, either performing solo or with Cardinal Street, a five-piece rock band. Spending her youth working in greenhouses, and growing up in a family band covering RUSH and Journey songs.

At Simmering Kettle, you will find comfort food at its finest. They have all-day breakfast options as well as other hearty meal options. Dosti eats is a mix of food from all over the world! They serve food from Mexico, pan Asian food, north American food, and some tasty dessert options and you can even have a cocktail.

So come along sit back and relax, have a great meal and listen to music, how good does that sound? All the food will be brought to your table by their friendly staff. Food will be available from both locations.

Please remember to bring your mask as they are mandatory if you plan on going inside to use the washrooms. Other COVID measures will be in place during the event so you can feel safe!

Mics Hot: Barrie Recording Studios


Regular readers of this space already know that the growing Barrie Music Scene is killing it with original artists and talented performers.

And that talent extends behind the microphone.

Barrie is stacked with independent recording studios. Although recording software and equipment is readily available for you to use in your garage, there’s no substitute for quality. And the experience of working in a studio with a veteran producer can only help to elevate your audio project.

Read on for some of the top studios in town.


MIX 11

Having worked with local artists like the Noolands and Bigfoot’s Hand and internationally known talent like Martin Short and Catherine O’Hara, Mix 11 offers mixing, recording and mastering.




Operated by Barrie’s resident Godfather of live music, Shane Heath (owner of the Foxx Lounge) One Star has worked with a ton of local artists as well, including Cudbear.

Speaking of staples of the Barrie music scene; mega talented performer, producer and all around amazing dude Shane L Dennis owns and operates Unity Market Studio.

Doubling as an outreach locale and a fantastic spot for a bite to eat or a coffee, the studio is a full range operation and has produced a ton of great work over the years.



We had a chance to check out this new studio in the winter, owned and operated by music industry pro Caley Kelly.

The casual atmosphere and high quality equipment makes for a creative environment, and Caley’s abilities were on full display when we partnered with YIKES! Comedy Troupe to produce a Xmas themed audio spoof at the studio.

3 Online Things To Do Tonight



This will be the third weekend that we’re restricted to the confines of our living quarters. But as we reported on earlier this week, Barrie is coming up aces when it comes to coping with isolation.

And there are still plenty of online options to keep the distractions flowing. And remember that a whole whack of local restaurants are still delivering if you want to make a big night of it.


3 Online Things To Do Tonight


Live Stream w. B Knox

The Barrie music scene is absolutely killing it with online gigs during the Covid crisis, and tonight B. Knox continues the trend.

At 7pm Barry takes over the Rivoli’s Instagram for a live performance to promote the release of his new disc, Best Laid Plans.

You can hear a full interview with Mr. Knox about his improbable path to music on the debut episode of Uncover The Music.


Do A Work Out

In addition to the variety of yoga classes from local studios popping up online, a couple of gyms have virtually opened their doors to get your heart rate up.

And if you’re anything like us…the only exercise you’ve been getting is opening the fridge door. Might be time to stretch the limbs.

Tonight Beatz Barrie offers a free 30 minute work out on Instagram.


Take A Virtual Tour Of The MacLaren

Even though the MacLaren had to close their doors with the rest of us, that doesn’t mean you can’t access their galleries.

You can take a virtual tour of the current portraits hanging in the gallery through their website. The collection spans documentary photographs to commissioned paintings to enigmatic self-portraits, so there’s a plenty of diversity to check out.

Keep in mind you can still donate to the MacLaren (and other local charities) through online portals.

The originals may be out of reach for now, but you can still explore artwork from our new season of exhibitions by taking a virtual tour of Portraits from the MacLaren’s Permanent Collection. Click the link in our bio to "visit the gallery"! #MuseumFromHome The art of portraiture is a subtle one, evolving over time from stately portraits of power to contemporary works that challenge notions of beauty and identity. This exhibition features works from our collection that demonstrate how artists working across diverse media approach this venerable genre. @mcgibbous @noor.means.light #maclarencollection #currentexhibitions #maclarenexhibitions #portraits #portraiture #contemporaryart #virtualexhibitions #onlinecollection #exploremuseums #stayhome #museumsandchill #startthinkingart #maclarenartcentre
