===================================================

THEATRE

HERE’S JOHNNY: October 11-14 / 18-21/ 25-28. Doors: 7:30pm. Show: 8:00pm. $25 / $20 students/seniors/wage-challenged.
HERE’S JOHNNY is a gritty tale drawn from the streets of an inner city neighbourhood, where questions are answered by more questions and choices often end badly. Inspired by true events, we follow the exploits and interactions of the five principal characters: Johnny, the Security Systems salesman, “I still gotta a heartbeat”; Bob, the neighbourhood guy, I’m so sick and tired of all the crap”; Ginger, the lifer on the streets; “C’mon it’s the oldest profession”; the new arrival, Candy, “I don’t want to think about tomorrow”; and Billy the punk. “Is that all you got?”  The audience will also be immersed in the 24/7 chatter and mayhem of the streets. Running the gamut from dark to humorous, touching to tragic, from the absurd to very real, HERE’S JOHNNY provokes a response in the audience from outrage to discomfort, rattling our cages as only street life can do. The characters may not be all likeable however they are human and deeply flawed in their individual ways.

MUSIC

MOJO (Men OF Jazz Octet): Saturday October 7.  Doors: 7:30pm. Show: 8:00pm. $20 / $15 students/seniors/wage-challenged.
MOJO (men of Jazz Octet) is a Hamilton based combo playing Cool, Hardbop and beyond. MOJO covers hard bop to modern composers like Freddie Mojo october 7_17Hubbard, Don Sickler (superblue), and Bill Fulton; a bit edgier, a bit more in your face than a traditional octet. 

Corin Raymond / Kim Beggs: Sunday, October 15. Doors: 7:00pm. Show: 7:30pm. $20 / $15 students/seniors/wage-challenged.
Here are these two versatile, amazing folkies in the same place at the same time!  You can’t miss this. Sincere and vulnerable, clear eyed and tough, Yukon singer songwriter Kim Beggs sings sweet, dark tales of northern life.

BROWNMAN Ali explores Michael Jackson’s “THRILLER”: Monday, October 30. Doors: 7:30pm. Show: 8:00pm. $15 at the door, $10 advance.
Brownman’s HALLOWEEN THRILLER: Michael Jackson through the Lens of Electric-jazz. Acclaimed jazz / hip-hop trumpet player BROWNMAN ALI is leading an all-star quartet through his popular annual Halloween Thriller concert. The much lauded BROWNMAN ELECTRYC TRIO + 1 will perform the entire Michael Jackson “Thriller” recording, interpreted and re-worked in National Jazz Award winning improviser Brownman’s Miles Davis-esque fashion.
