Electric Six has often used The Devil as subject matter for its songs because of that last bit, the part about corruption and adulteration. That’s what Electric Six has been trying to do with its music for quite some time! We want to corrupt young women, just like The Devil!

With its fourteenth studio album Bride of the Devil, Electric Six examines the concepts of evil and corruption, humanity’s various falls from grace, the nine circles of purgatory and of course, the internet itself. 

And then we get to the title track, a radio anthem, where it all becomes clear that The Devil is a metaphor for Russia and the United States is the young girl who is seduced, corrupted and wedded into a Satanic covenant with the beast. 

Finally, the haunting album closer "Worm In the Wood" is Electric Six at its most serious, most tender and emotional. Haunting. Effervescent. Corrupt. Jaundiced. Tired.

Bad Thursday 2019, with The Perpetrators and Ridley Bent 
The Perpetrators front-man and founding member Jay Nowicki is rated one of Canada’s tastiest guitar players. Together with the “meat-and-potatoes” rhythm section of Emmet VanEtten and John Scoles (or sometimes founding member Ryan Menard) they deliver a tight, raw and intense blues experience.

The Perpetrators’ albums have garnered WCMA awards and Juno nominations. A European Tour capped off a Juno Nomination and a win at the Western Canadian Music Awards. That decade, The Perps released two more albums, garnering various award nominations. In late 2009, Jay Nowicki teamed up with Romi Mayes for extensive touring, and recorded the critically acclaimed live album Lucky Tonight in 2011.

Ridley Bent is back with his latest release "Wildcard" the anticipated follow up of "Rabbit on My Wheel" showcasing the Western Canada based Country artist's keen fascination for characters whose life on the straight and narrow rarely lasts past the nearest exit to a short, crooked road.

Jonathan Byrd and The Pickup Cowboys are musical gunslingers, vaudevillian hucksters, and old-fashioned tent revivalists. With their new album Pickup Cowboy (2018), they have brought a bold new set of working-class anthems to Americana fans, and a spirit-raising show to back it up.

Opening the show will be local folk darlings, Nation of Two. Founding member of The Duhks, fierce songbird Jessee Havey and husband Nathaniel Good have found so much to see inside each other that they have formed a musical Nation of Two. Their partnership in life is mirrored in their musical lives. Their music comes from such a place of trust and adoration that listeners can't help but be entranced by the magic unfolding before their eyes.

The Barber of Seville - Rossini’s show- stopping music sparkles with wit and charm. It is one laugh after another in this crazy tale of close shaves, disguises, and hilarious antics. The scheming barber and jack-of-all-trades plots to help his friend, the Count, woo the lovely Rosina and enable her to escape the clutches of her lecherous old guardian, Dr. Bartolo. Does Figaro have enough tricks up his sleeve to outfox the old doctor, unite lovers, and save the day?
With loveable characters, catchy music, and pure joy and silliness throughout, it is no wonder this comedic gem still tops the charts in popularity!
Sung in Italian with projected English translations.

Uli discovered his love for the electric guitar in 1968 and played his first concert later that same year at the age of 13 as lead guitarist for the band Blue Infinity. His early influences were The Beatles, The Cream with Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. In the following years Uli played in a number of bands in Hanover while also studying classical guitar as well as the piano. His influences at that time were Andrés Segovia and Julian Bream, but also Flamenco guitarists like Manitas de Plata and the great violinist Yehudi Menuhin.

Uli was the first electric guitarist who had the vision and ability to significantly introduce a whole armoury of classical techniques towards the electric guitar, thus vastly expanding the hitherto somewhat limited technical vocabulary available on the guitar. Uli was the first guitar player in rock music who brought genuine classical know-how and virtuoso dexterity towards the instrument, a fact which has gained him the title of “father of neo-classical”.   http://www.ulijonroth.com/

The Good Will Social Club & UMFM are proud to present Dilly Dally  w/ chastity

In the short time since they released their debut record, ‘Sore,’ Dilly Dally toured the world, only to nearly collapse and call it quits forever. Rising from the ashes with more power and conviction, the Toronto rockers’ new album is titled ‘Heaven,’ and it’s a fierce, fiery ode to optimism. Frontwoman Katie Monks describes the songs as coping mechanisms, a declaration of faith in the power of music and a burning reminder that we need not wait until the afterlife for things to get better. 

Monks and guitarist Liz Ball fleshed out the lineup with bassist Jimmy Tony and drummer Benjamin Reinhartz and floored critics on both sides of the Atlantic. 

Chastity is a world of its own from the mind of Brandon Williams. Chastity’s songs are charged with the ethos of archetypal youth on the fringe. It is an artifact of youth culture constantly working to form community, bridging isolation with collectivity. Visuals play a meaningful role with Williams using his penchant for crafting consistently sharp, challenging imagery to personalize the narratives running throughout all of Chastity’s work.

Glimpses of Humanity Exhibit Opening
Artists Lorena Ferguson and Jorja Loewen
Show opens on April 11 
Runs April 12 to April 23 - 12 to 5 pm
Opening night will include a live mallet percussion performance by Anaday Loft

What does it mean to be human?  And how does humanity as a whole impact the earth, its other inhabitants and the environment?  Human hands can change everything.  The question remains, will our final impact on the planet be for better or worse?

Glimpses of Humanity is a photography and mixed media art exhibit that explores the human aspect through paint, paper and photograph.  You will find signs of the human element in obvious ways – faces, hands, roads; as well as through more subtle clues of humanity’s presence – like an expansive view of nature reminding us of our role in keeping the earth. 

Lorena Ferguson is a mixed media artist who creates with whimsy and meaning. Her unique art pieces are filled with pieces of history, language, music and things that stir the spirit and imagination.

Jorja Loewen is a professional photographer with a passion for bringing out the beauty in everyone and everything.
