Stefana Fratila
“Romanian-born electronic artist/producer. Her music revolves around breaking down gender binaries and the silence around gender-based violence. In live settings, she loops and layers improvised vocal melodies with pulsating dance beats and textures of binaural beats. Since the age of 16, she has performed hundreds of DIY and underground shows around the world. In 2014, she released a visual ep entitled “memory” and a cassette, “Tristă cu Frică”, via Genero, a female-fronted audio collective and independent label.”

The Crowbots
“What do you get when you spend a year and a half scavenging the carcasses of 20th-century rock songs, then spend another year and a half frankensteining them back to life? If you’re the Crowbots, you get five energetic tracks that sound at once classical and freshly technical.” Read more in Discorder….

Still Creek Murder
“Samuel Dick (guitar/vox) and Shay Hayashi (drums/vox) are a rock duo well worth admittance alone…Sam Dick tends to his guitar like a patient in hospice care, comforting it as it violently comes to terms with its own mortality. And with Hayashi both confident and incredible on the drums, Still Creek Murder has a winning recipe almost every time.” Read more in Discorder….

Salad Days @ Vogue Theatre – April 10th

We are proud to present, with MRG, Georgia Straight and Northern Transmission, the documentary screening for Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC. Opening at The Vogue Theatre on April 10th, this is a comprehensive look at the proto-punk scene in DC over a ten year span with interviews by bands, label owners and fanzine publishers such as Dave Grohl, Ian and Alec Mackaye as well as Henry Rollins. Writer/director Scott Crawford has been publishing zines since the age of 12 on punk stuff, making his take on the DIY scene in Washington particularly relevant to the underground.

PROUD @ Firehall Arts Centre From April 7th to 25th

Proud Poster
Firehall Arts Centre will host the fourth production of Michael Healey’s comic political satire, Proud this Sunday on April 5th. The last installment by the award-winning playwright in his Canadian works trilogy, it’ll pique your interest if you’ve ever wondered if Canadian politics is sexy. With a prime minister styled after Stephen Harper, and a Pygmalion type MP floating around the office, Proud has received positive reviews from The Georgia Straight to The Globe and Mail for pitting a likeable (!!) Harper with a female politician from Quebec (nice). Perfect for poli sci and theatre majors alike!
