Written by on

Par Mariette Delevallée. Est-il possible de combiner jeux d’arcade, bands de musique émergents et perogies dans une seule et même place ? En plus, avec les petites lumières de partout, on dirait Las Vegas. Avec des bands indépendants. Intéressant ! L’idée parait bien farfelue et pourtant, le quartier d’Old Ottawa South entend déjà résonner les «ding ding» des flippers ricochant sur les fourneaux remplis de perogies faits maison. C’est que Paul Granger, son concepteur/constructeur/manageur s’affaire nuit et jour aux derniers préparatifs. Ce jeudi 17 avril donne le coup d’envoi, l’aventure... | Continue reading article

Pour l’occasion, Frannie Halder de la formation Random Recipe a bien accepté de nous accorder une entrevue.

With lyrics like, “I can’t give you my love, but I can give you my cat,” who wouldn’t be entertained by local drum and bass duo Couchwrecked? By drum and bass, I mean the actual instruments. These two are reminiscent of Debbie Harry and New York’s late ’70s punk rock scene, but their lyrics are a lot less angst-ridden and a whole much more fun. The band releases its debut EP April 19 at the Lunenburg Pub and Bar. The album consists of five songs recorded in bass player Phil... | Continue reading article

Ottawa goes back for seconds with Stiff Quickies, an Ottawa Fringe Festival fundraiser this Thursday night. The cheeky title titillates ones interest, and I asked Greggory Clark to give some background into the event. “It started last year. It was a pretty good time, so we thought we’d do it again.” Clark says referring to the success the fundraiser had last year. The event boasts short films, tall drinks and deep pockets with the alluring tease of being able to meet the filmmakers and actors themselves. “What we did was... | Continue reading article

When I rolled into the jam packed parking lot of Ottawa’s Obsession Live Lounge, something told me this was not going to be your average, ordinary Wednesday night. Jake E. Lee, and his newest endeavour, Red Dragon Cartel, shook the walls of this intimate 450 seat live music venue with their highly charged brand of melodic metal rock. Formed earlier this year, Red Dragon Cartel is the brainchild of ex-Ozzy Osbourne and Badlands guitarist, Jake E. Lee, and his long time friend, producer, and bassist Ron Mancuso (Beggars & Thieves).... | Continue reading article

Just in time for National Poetry Month, Ottawa VERSeFest and IdeaSpace invite you to come celebrate the sillier side of this art form. Dramatic pop song readings have a long history (think Peter Seller’s cover of A Hard Day’s Night, or William Shatner’s utterly bizarre rendition of Rocket Man). On April 17th, Ottawa’s top poetic talent will be on hand at IdeaSpace to carry on the tradition. If you’re curious about Ottawa’s poetry scene, this fundraiser will be a fun and approachable way to get your feet wet. Hosted by... | Continue reading article
