#IMOMSOHARD: MOM’S NIGHT OUT – October 18, 2017

They’ve kept you sane. They’ve brightened your day. They’ve made you laugh ‘til you peed a little. Hot off their 40 city U.S. summer tour Kristin and Jen, from #IMOMSOHARD are taking their show out of the playroom and onto the road. But this time, they’re heading north to Canada!

Just For Laughs and Mills Entertainment are proud to present #IMOMSOHARD in Calgary at the Jack Singer Concert Hall at Arts Commons on October 18. Tickets go on sale Thursday, August 31 at 10 AM. This show is 18 and over.

Jumping off of the pages of Facebook and on to stages across the country, there’s no one making moms feel as uncomfortably normal as Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley, the hilarious oh-so-real women behind #IMOMSOHARD. With over 1 million Facebook fans and more than 100 million views of their web series, Jen and Kristin’s blend of honesty and humor resonates with moms and dads alike, proving why these two have become the hottest ticket in town.

Tickets range from $47.50 and $57.50 and are available online at artscommons.ca.

ROSETTA WITH NORTH & MONOLITH – October 17, 2017

Forging ahead as a fully-independent band, Rosetta returns in 2017 with Utopioid, their sixth full- length album and most concept-driven work to date. Written as a four-part song cycle that treads multipolar extremes of texture, dynamics, and harmony, it reaches the highest heights and the deepest lows of the band’s career. An unflinching study of human aspiration, frailty, and betrayal, the album is equal parts mysticism and biography. Utopioid tells a story in sounds, encapsulating and transcending the band’s 14 years of sonic experimentation.

With Utopioid, Rosetta has again upended their stylistic palette. But as always, with ever deeper gratitude for the investment of fans around the world, they continue to search for the intersection of heaviness and beauty.
