Jane's Party, a local four-piece band with a strong vocal front-line are joined on the bill by Gramercy Riffs, who churn out "heartbreak/nostagia pop," and The Rucksack Willies, who sport an "updated" bluegrass vibe.

ART | Flock Of Marys
An exhibition this evening will display the fruit of an interesting and unusual long distance collab between American visual artist Mark Zelmer, and Canadian photographer Korinne Robertson. Both share a penchant for the absurd, oblique, and bizarre. All of Robertson's photos were emailed to Zelmer, who then added his own digital touches to yield a result that is truly a 'digital' collaboration.
