There’s a new kind of adult entertainment in town, and that’s to combine burlesque with geek culture to form nerdlesque. This new form of dancing is taking the world by storm with local groups from Australia to New York reinventing all that was beloved from a long time ago. Instead of a galaxy, far, far away, everything is happening locally. Geekenders is a Vancouver, BC based group that formed in 2012 to give to the masses unique takes on popular franchise titles like Douglas AdamsHitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, BBC’s Doctor Who and Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. On Friday night at GottaCon, a Victoria based gaming convention, this group put on a rousing fun act in Star Wars: A Nude Hope.

Cheech & Chong’s Up in Smoke Tour returns to the Pacific Northwest!

Published in Live Reviews Written by

Emerald Queen Hotel and Casino
November 08, 2014 AT 8:00 PM

There’s a musical battle brewing in the tour that’s featuring Cheech & Chong ever since they paired with the band bearing the name of War. In their return to the Pacific Northwest at the Emerald Queen Hotel and Casino, there’s no mention of the band and for ol’ time fans wanting to see more of the comedy duo, they just may get it. In their Canadian leg of the tour, the show was billed as Cheech & Chong with musical guest War. Perhaps the confusion has gotten their marketing department’s attention and there’s some adjustments to the advertising going on.

Puscifer/Carina Round

Published in Live Reviews Written by

Puscifer/Carina Round
March 11, Jubilee Auditorium, Calgary AB

As soon as Maynard James Keenan appeared from the right corner of the stage pulling behind him a trailer hitch, you knew this would be no ordinary concert. Dressed in a leather hat and matching jacket, the singer began the Puscifer experience with a Bill Hicks style monologue while setting up a mock hippy camp fire jam session set, complete with chairs, wine, glasses and a wooden snake.

Lust Boys - Bloody Betty - Mishits - Pom Pom Girls

Published in Live Reviews Written by

July 2, 2009 – Pub 340, Vancouver, BC
 - Apparently Pom Pom Girls showed up a couple hours before the show and asked if they could open the show ‘cause their guitar player was going back to Japan in three days. Pretty random way to start, but also memorable.
