For those who haven't seen the film Artists By Night, now's your chance.

Filmmaker Kelly-Anne Riess will be in attendance along with the comic book artists David Alexander Robertson, Gmb Chomichuk and Scott Henderson who will read from their works.

Many young boys love comics. Some of these boys have a talent for drawing and dream they can someday become comic book artists. But they grow up, and suddenly the dream of becoming a comic book artist seems impossible for most. But not for Winnipeg comic book artists David, Scott and GMB.
January 30, Doors 7:30 Show 9:00 After party 12:00
Tickets $10 in advance from The Park Theatre, Music Trader, the bands and online

Deadbeats is a party we throw every now and then. 
We have four really solid bands: Dangercat, Kids & Heroes, Elder Abuse, and Clipwing. 
Having just one of these bands on a show would be great, having them all is unreal! 
  • Dangercat’s new album is ‘To The Moon’. They have opened for Comeback Kid, The Flatliners, and more.
  • Kids & Heroes have been seen sharing a stage with bands such as Propagandhi, The Flatliners, Death By Stereo, Belvedere, and Total Chaos.
  • Elder Abuse play something that is fast and catchy as well as bringing together emotional lyrics and catchy sing alongs.
  • A blend of rock and punk influenced by The Flatliners, Smoke or Fire, Foo Fighters and more, Clipwing makes loud, energetic and passionate music
February 1, 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
