POST-FILM PERFORMANCE by JR. GONE WILD!
City landscapes are littered with fallen music venues of every shape and size. In Edmonton, some of the old buildings still stand tall, bricks cracking, paint peeling more with every year, while others are marked only by the condos that cover their graves. Dead Venues is an exploration of the history of several shuttered venues and the communities that evolved around them.
Global Visions is thrilled to present the World Premiere Event Screening of Mike Siek and Eden Munro’s Dead Venues, a fond look back at some of Edmonton’s most beloved, “gone-but-not-forgotten” music venues. One of the most highly-anticipated locally made projects to come along in years, Dead Venues is the culmination of hundreds of hours of filming and editing, and local music fans are in for an absolute treat.
In addition to the World Premiere screening of Dead Venues, this premiere event will feature a live performance from Jr. Gone Wild, a vintage poster gallery & display, and the EPL will have musical tech from their Makerspace, as well as an early look at their new digital local music collection and archive, Capital City Records!!
Presented in partnership with EPL (Capital City Records) and KOBOT.
Screening sponsored by Edmonton Heritage Council ECAMP, Alberta Music, and CJSR.
