and some info on Sunday afternoon:

PWYC (Suggested $5/$10) ALL AGES

This event takes place on the closing day of Sound Seance I from 11am - 4pm and features one of the city's very best all vinyl DJs, Alister Johnson who specializes in providing good timez via soul, funk, psych and everything in between. Alister played the opening party at Geary Lane last summer and had the patio hopping til the wee hours. Recently returned from an exodus to the black continent, Alister plans to share some of the rare jems and other unique curios that found him overseas.

Also on the roof, a special solo performance by one of the city's most unique and identifiable voices, Isla Craig. Isla will perform a solo set in between DJ sets, to help get the crowd swaying. If we are lucky, she may add some vocal enhancements to the main room's drawm as well...

In honour of National Drone Day (a countrywide event overseen by Weird Canada) we are hosting a FIVE HOUR continuous drone session featuring local drone wizards Knurl, Lorde Awesome, William Davison (Irp.App. ex / Nurse with Wound), Isles Day and Brigitte Bardon't which will find its crescendo in the late afternoon accompanied by the frenzied drumming of the grandest wizard of them all, Sexy Merlin. The room will be darkened, incense will fill the air and you are encouraged to bring your pillows and veg the ef out. A restorative massage specialist will be on hand too should you want to take things to the next level.

Rare screening of Annie Wong's 7 Days of Menstruation will be screening throughout.

Event ends at 4pm SHARP! Don't be late! Come nurse your Sunday hangovers with us ahead of the grand finale beginning at 7pm! (Wrekmeister Harmonies, Jessica Moss, Off World, Carl Didur)
