Hedwig and the Angry Inch

In Calgary we have a small theatre group that put on some pretty good productions, it is the Sage Theatre Group and the do their plays at the Pumphouse Theatre. The Pumphouse Theatre gains its name mainly for the fact it is built inside an old pumping station that was used to pump water from the Bow River to supply the North end of the city.

Hedwig is probably one of my favourite transvestite rock films, like always movies and plays show us a different world, one where a drag queen could become a famous punk rocker. However if that happened in this day and age ... well I am not sure how the world would react beyond find the band a gimmick.

I rather enjoyed this more than the film, since there was the interactiveness there, and the front part of the audience seating was set up like a casual music bar, tables and chairs and candles. Our table being near the front so we had what I would judge as the most fun.

Constant Season

So my friend Graeme is in the band Constant Season, last night I finally went to one of his shows to support him. Just to say, I was very impressed and the Marquee Room is a fun music venue that is for sure. I hope that the band becomes very successful, but not sell out level, just kinda a constant thing, almost like a spring or a fall you wish will never end. I am sure spring and fall have classification or something but I can't put my finger on it.

I have to say that I was a bit disappoint that Graeme and the Drummer didn't strip down to their undies, but Graeme always was a cock tease.

Graeme just recently told me not to listen to the music on their myspace page and to wait for them to release some newer tunes - Buck

Fruit Bottom

Saw this at the campus store, and thought "yeah, I feel like having a Fruit Bottom today", lame joke I know.
