Too bad for the real Jason Kenney who Jason Kenney’s Hot Summer has EXHAUSTED his entire race Grindstone Theater November 10-21. I’m sure they could sneak up on the Prime Minister to witness the scathing satire making fun of his own words! The show stars veteran comedic actor Donovan Workun as Jason Kenney, and there really isn’t a better locale for the role of Yes It’s a Musical. Here is a play by Liz Nicholls.
Sam Roberts Band was CANCELED at Midway on November 17th and 18th. During this time, City and color double header at the Jubilee Auditorium 24-25 November still seems to be a go. We hear the Dallas Green band on the radio all the time, and although good singers are suckers for slow songs, they start to move a bit more.
The good people of the Northern Light Theater present The great brothel fire of 1921 – a title that speaks for itself based on real events that happened 100 years ago in Big Valley, Alberta. No charges were ever laid, but there was apparently a lot of speculation among locals. And no, it’s not a musical. it plays From November 18 to 28 at the Varscona Theater.
The Black Dog Freehouse is always a great place to go, where some of the area’s top performers give free shows every Saturday afternoon – hence the name Freehouse? Coming November 13 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. EST Jay gilday, an artist from Yellowknife who combines his Dene heritage with folk elements from elsewhere.
If you’ve ever wondered about the role the Dutch played in WWII, a November 12 event at Place du Festival should get you back on your feet and extend Remembrance Day by one day. Storytellers – Liberation of the Netherlands during World War II will be narrated by acclaimed authors Ted Barris and David O’Keefe.
Stomp Records – whose name says it all – celebrates its 26th anniversary of loud business with a spectacular bigass punk rock happening November 13 at the Starlite room. On the invoice will be Planet breakers, one of our favorites Raygun Cowboys (below), with The Real Sickies, The Anti-Queens, Doghouse Rose, Fire Next Time, and Holy prey. Star show at 5 p.m. I guess it’s for all ages? Vaccine passports compulsory.
