Due to the events in downtown Ottawa which occurred on Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014, we were unable to go live on the air for our usual radio broadcast on CHUO 89.1 FM.
That being said, I had three wonderfully generous interviewees lined up this week to tell us about their upcoming events going down in the Capital. You can’t keep a good man/woman/city down! So please take a listen, stay strong-and my heart of course goes out sincerely to all those affected by what occurred.
Tarantino Unchained is an event taking place at House of Targ next Wednesday, October 29th, 2014 at 9pm. It’s a fundraiser for Jer’s Vision that invites all participants to costume-up as their favourite Tarantino character, to dance a little and, best of all, to give a bit at the door (and the pinball machines) to a worthy cause. I had the chance to sit down with organizer Wendy Lee to chat a bit about what to expect.
Velo Vogue is an Ottawa-based bike-loving blog dedicated to fashionable folks who choose pedals over petrol. This is my interview with organizer Zara discussing the blog and the upcoming Velo Vogue hosted event Plaid Parade happening Sunday, October 26th, at 11am.
There are many stories in Twin Peaks — some of them are sad, some funny. Some of them are stories of madness, of violence. Some are ordinary. Yet they all have about them a sense of mystery — the mystery of life. While you might not resolve in a single evening the mystery of life, Victoire’s Welcome to Twin Peaks art show is sure to inspire, at the very least, some deep contemplation of all things inexplicable (thanks David Lynch). Join them Thursday, October, 30th, 2014 at their Wellington location for some art, fashion and delectable treats all inspired by the soon-to-return cult classic!
Here are the tracks we played:
Down in Mexico by The Coasters
DMZ by BADBADNOTGOOD
Ghost by The Creeps
