The Red Rails are a relatively new rock trio based in Ottawa. A love of minimalist rock and roll brought friends Kim Vincent (Vocals, Guitar), Chris Slaney (Bass, Vocals) and Steve Brogno (drums) together just over two years ago. “On the Line” is the first single from their forthcoming album A Living Fiction set to be released on Tuesday, July 15. For me, the song has a bit of a late 70s rock vibe to it: a heavy guitar combined with a sweet melody making it easy to groove along... | Continue reading article

Hintonburg’s sleepy Elmdale Lawn Bowling club will be transformed into the hippest spot in the city on Wednesday when Lawn Summer Nights returns to the capital for the first of four nights of mingling, munchies, booze and bowling in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. The second annual fundraiser, which draws a who’s who of young Ottawa professionals from the political, media and business spheres, doubled in size this year and sold out in less than 24 hours. “We have a bunch of returning teams, and we attribute much of our... | Continue reading article

Heading in to David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross one wonders if The Avalon Studio production will compare favourably to the excellent movie version with Jack Lemmon, Alan Arkin & Al Pacino. Be assured, this is no poor cousin but a relentlessly vicious and vital theatrical experience of Mamet’s world of shady salesmen and dark deeds. Glengarry Highlands & Glen Ross Farms are two undesirable developments in Florida. We follow 24hours in the lives of a gang of thuggish real-estate agents competing on the company leader board in a race of... | Continue reading article

Caroline Fréchette is one of my favourite fantasy writers in the National Capital Region. Last year, the Gatineau-based author released Blood Relations, the first book in a five-part series. Now she has published Brothers In Arms, the enjoyable sequel in her action-packed world filled with gangsters, a mysterious corporation and young people with superpowers. Published by Renaissance Press, this well written series tells the story of Alex Winters, a teenage boy who can create fire with his thoughts.  Growing up in rough circumstances and running away at the age of... | Continue reading article

From electronica to seductive rapping, Rehab Pizza Party has a little something to bring every scene together. If the eclectic mix of performers aren’t enough to get you out of the house, then the promise of free pizza will. “It’s a chance to relive what rock n’ roll pizza parties used to be, but this time with more dancing,” describe co-organizers Victoria Watson and Leona Nikolić. It’s the best of both worlds, “you get to hear all types of music and eat free pizza at the same time.” For their... | Continue reading article
