For those already familiar with Canadian hard rockers, Goddo, you’ll remember them blazing onto the scene in 1975, with their crazy, in-your-face brand of high decibel rock, and their larger than life stage presence.

Written by on

There’s an undeniable romance to the idea of climbing into a car and discovering the world head-on wherever the road, and your instincts, might take you. That’s the primary motivation behind multidisciplinary visual artist, musician and director Lisa Lipton (a.k.a FRANKIE)’s most recent works that compromise the screening get outta my dreams and into my car. This Thursday’s screening (presented by Available Light Screening Collective) will be the first time Lipton shows all five films created during her Canada-U.S. journey and the first time she will perform alongside them.

Chosen to celebrate the Centre’s 5th anniversary, the shows listed seem to continue the Shenkman tradition of having an eclectic... | Continue reading article
