The Friday Round Up

So what if it is cold and rainy – the atmosphere at the Grupo Corpo shows last week was hot enough to keep you warm well into springtime! Did you enjoy the shows?

It’s Valentines Day so celebrate at a specials Valentines Day Dances for a Small Stage, tonight and tomorrow night. It is also DSS number 30 (congrats!!) and this anniversary show will feature an eclectic array of Vancouver’s hottest artistic talent, who will create and perform innovative contemporary dance works on the signature ‘small stage.’ At the Ukrainian Centre, 154 East 10th Avenue @ Main Street Tickets: $20 cash at the door or better yet online because these shows sell out! Doors at 7pm. All ages.

Battery Opera’s Bob’s Lounge is happening again this week, Friday as always, with quite the line-up: dancers Justine Chambers, Alison Denham and Billy Marchenski; and music-makers Ben Brown, Meredith Bates, Chris Gestrin. These Friday night occurrences happen at Unit Pitt Projects, 236 East Pender. 10pm to midnight. Tix at the door.
