Animal Parade Vernissage & Exhibition by Sabine Modder… then BINGO TIME with China Doll @ 8:30 pm

Bessie Blue sees spots, but you should see art! My art, in fact. Please come on down to the Shanghai Restaurant on Thursday, March 29 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. to see my animals on parade. I’ll be there, hanging out and eating noodles. Stick around, look at the paintings, chat, maybe have some Chinese food and a drink. Then roll up your sleeves and get ready to dab! From 8:30 p.m. there will be fun, games and glamour when the marvelous China Doll hosts an evening of bingo. It doesn’t get any better than this!

I will be donating my proceeds from the sales of the paintings in this show to St. Luke’s Table, a community service that provides meals and support to those in need. St. Luke’s Table is also located in Chinatown.

Petunia & The Minimalist Jugband, LIVE MUSIC, Tues., Oct. 24 at 8 PM – 11:00 PM

Petunia & The Minimalist Jugband at The Shanghai 24oct17

Petunia & The Minimalist Jugband

Tuesday, October 24 at 8:00 PM11:00 PM EDT

Don’t miss Petunia SOLO on the road with the Minimalist Jugband. How do you describe Petunia to someone who has never seen him perform? Well, he’s like Hank Williams on acid… Tom Waits meets Elvis at Wood Guthrie’s hobo junction… If Nick Cave and David Lynch had a hillbilly baby, one that yodeled, you would have Petunia. An undiscovered hidden treasure.

Petunia’s solo performances are irresistibly complimented by… The Minimalist Jugband… He’s a psychobilly beat poet… He opened up for Nick Cave, and played Vancouver Folk Fest a few times. Canadian National Slam Team… Underground outside artist… funnier than comedy, sadder than music.
