It’s getting all 1997 up in here! CJSW’s annual funding drive’s coolest event of the season will be a throwback to a time of innocence in the music industry, a time before Napster, a time when a compilation CD put out by a music television station that actually played music videos could be Canada’s #1 top selling album the year it was released and stay strong as the #3 best selling album in Canada OF ALL TIME.

On Hallowe’en, 17 local bands will play loving tribute to the 17 tracks that captured the Canadian music zeitgeist in a perfect combo of UK, US and Canadian artists.

LiberationDaysJENNA

Canada liberated the Dutch from German occupation and it is this relationship that Theatre Calgary’s Liberation Days explores.

No matter how hard the act of changing is.
