The final Xpress cover

We turn Apartment613 Live over to all things Xpress

Fight! Resist! Dance! at this year’s PROMdemonium

It is often said that youth is wasted on the young. If celebrating prom was wasted on your youth, you’ve got another chance to break out the tux/crinoline this weekend with the 5th annual PROMdemonium. PROMdemonium bills itself as “Ottawa’s radical, community-oriented, gender-bending, bike-loving, enviro-humping, queer-diggin, slow dancing, big dress wearing prom that you never had”. […]
