Extra Ordinary News!

We all know extraordinary people. Some are public heroes, boldfaced-named men and women who have attained greatness in their field. Some are community leaders, women and men who work tirelessly, thanklessly, to better their neighbourhoods and the lives of those around them. Some of them are ordinary, so ordinary that unless you talked to him or her on the street, you would never know the depth of their inspiration and talent.

At your next Rain City Chronicles, we want to talk about the Extra Ordinary people who surround us, who work to make our lives better (even though we may have never heard of them), and who have drawn on their very ordinary-ness to accomplish something extraordinary. In particular, we’re going to shine a spotlight on people who have brought their neighborhoods and communities together – the people who are building a more connected city.

Presented by SFU Public Square and the Vancouver Foundation on September 21, 2012, we are excited to announce Extra Ordinary at the Vancouver Playhouse, which we can’t wait to turn into our own cozy venue, Rain City-style (read: fabric banners and cookies!). Tickets are on sale now, and we’ll be announcing our storytellers and musicians in September. Know someone you think fits the Extra Ordinary moniker? Get in touch!

One special announcement: Lizzy Karp will be joined onstage by our guest co-host and dear friend Cory Ashworth for this magical night of music, connection, inspiration and that indescribable feeling that binds us together.

New friends and old, we can’t wait to see you there.

Double musical trouble at Under The Influence

21 Jun

To whet your appetite for the amazing tunes we’ll be showered with next Friday, June 29, we want to introduce you to our two musical guests, if you don’t know them already. They are the outrageously talented Hilary Grist and Dominique Fricot.

We’ve been hoping to get these two on our lineup for awhile, and it’s a happy coincidence that they’ve been playing around town together quite a bit. (Maybe we can hope for some collaboration during the evening? I’ll have my fingers crossed…)

First off, Hilary’s amazing “Making Of” version of her Tall Buildings music video. Now THAT is dedication to your craft.

And, via our friends at 100.5 The Peak, a live take of Dominique’s most recent single. We could listen to this all day.

Music to tell stories by

13 Jan

Tickets to our next show, What Feeds Us, are selling fast, and we’re sure it has something to do with the uber-talent who is our next musical guest. For your aural pleasure at the end of this sunny workweek, we are so excited to have Reid Jamieson onstage on Jan. 27.

Storytellers will be announced next week, so stay tuned!
