A HUGE THANK YOU to our SHiNDiG 2015 Sponsors!

THANK-YOU-FOR-SUPPORTING-LIVE-MUSIC-600

Last Friday, SHiNDiG concluded with an epic finale between three incredible local talents! In the end, Still Creek Murder gloriously seized 1st place, with Skim Milk and Funk Schwey taking 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Thanks to each and every one of the bands that took part in SHiNDiG, it was great to see local music thriving every week at the Hindenburg!

However, none of the awesome prize packages that we were able to provide the winning bands would have been possible without the incredible generosity of SHiNDiG’s sponsors! From all of us at CiTR, a massive thank you goes out to our sponsors for supporting local music, bolstering local artist, helping erode Vancouver’s reputation as “No-Fun City”.

Arts Report Review: UBC Theatre’s Bacchae 2.1

From a stunning opening night on January 22nd, 2015, to its closing yesterday on February 8th, 2015, UBC Theatre’s stage production of The Bacchae 2.1 proved that UBC Theatre has continued to push boundaries in theatrical performance and provide challenging and provocative narratives for the audience. CiTR Arts Report covered the event extensively on-air, providing an in-depth commentary on the nature of this play on the January 28, 2015 show. 

Since then, Arts Reporter Danielle Tan attended the January 30th 2015 showing at the Frederic Wood Theatre at UBC and briefly reviewed the surroundings of this fascinating play.
