Not exclusively for the locals, I guess, because there are some links to some fun audio. A few quick notes on events and news that has crossed my transom:
- The SPARK Festival kicks off at the Belfry this week. I’m hoping to attend a reading of Joan MacLeod’s (man, no Wikipedia page, that’s just sad) new play “Another Home Invasion” on Monday night, and BASH’d: A Gay Rap Opera (good URL there) on Wednesday night.
- While walking downtown the other day, I noticed a poster for the exotically-named Ndidi Onukwulu. She’s performing at Herman’s Jazz Club on March 14. I checked out her MySpace page, and quite like her music. If I was down at SXSW, I’d go for sure.
- Theatre SKAM co-founder and former classmate Matthew Payne emailed about the stir they’re causing about funding cuts to the arts in BC. They recorded a spoofy version of a
Pat BenatarBonnie Tyler classic, entitled Total Eclipse of the Arts, and made the cover of the local newspaper earlier in the week.
