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.

Travel SOUVENIRS de voyages

Artist René Rivard started drawing in earnest at 14 and has never stopped producing art. After teaching for five years,  he studied fine arts at the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal (UQAM).

Various day jobs helped to pay the  rent, these were mostly in the field of mental health with a special focus on services for the Deaf and
hard of hearing.

René loves to travel. He photographs landscapes, especially mountains which he then transforms into  paintings.

The artist seldom exhibits his works and is thankful to Claude Jobin who facilitated this exhibition.

Join Rene and Claude at Shanghai Restaurant, Wednesday August 23rd 6pm – 10pm.

Ottawa Comic Jam

November Edition

Wednesday, November 25, 7 – 9:30 pm, FREE

The Ottawa Comic Jam “Super Jam” invites participants of all ages to start, continue and complete group effort improvised comic strip stories.

It’s been quite a year! Come out to the LAST JAM of the season and draw your inspired (or twisted) versions of favorite yuletide icons. If you’ve been putting off attending a jam, now is your chance to get out to one before the End of Days. No excuses n__n

I have heard rumours that there may be treats involved n_n

I’m also bringing a box destined for the Food Bank, if folks would like to bring non-perishable foods to donate on behalf of the Ottawa Comic Jam Group 🙂 totally voluntary ♥

The art of the comic jam explores artistic collaboration, visual arts, and story telling. Comic jams challenge the creativity and improvisation skills of the participants as they start, continue or complete a comic strip story.
