Smart and sexy will collide for one special night, courtesy of Nerd Girl Burlesque. Tassels and Tabletop 7: Attack of the Killer Bs is busting with burlesque boys and babes who all have names starting with B. Get hot with performances by Belle Jumelles, Bianca Boom Boom, and Boy Joystick, and then spend the rest of your evening playing board games. Some will be provided, but attendees are welcome to bring their own favourites as well.
Your friends may be buying homes, getting married, and having babies, but you know a crapload about TV, and you should be proud. Bring your big brain of somewhat useless knowledge to Community Trivia Night and be rewarded! Besides the exciting rounds of trivia based on the show, there will be a screening of the top three favourite episodes, and a costume contest (dress as your favourite character, naturally).
This city may be overrun with book and poetry nights, but the Chiaroscuro Reading Series (ChiSeries) aims to set itself apart by focusing soley on horror, sci-fi, and fantasy pieces. Authors Samantha Beiko, Keith Hollihan, and Robin Richardson will share excerpts of their respective works, and musical performances will be provided by Kari Maaren.
When Atom Egoyan gave up creative control of Camera Bar to the adjoining Stephen Bulger Gallery in 2006, many wondered whether the small 50-seat theatre had a future amongst the other repertory cinemas the city has to offer. It has operated in a limited capacity by offering free films on Saturday afternoons and through being rented out for private events, but the folks at The Seventh Art and MDFF are hoping that a new monthly screening series will help transform the theatre into something more in keeping with Egoyan’s original vision.
