The Open Air Orchestra Society presents the Carnival Band, with guests Punch Charming and The Pages in an all-night dance party Friday, November 21st at the Waldorf Hotel (1489 Hastings Street, near Clark). Doors at 8pm, show starts at 9.

Punch Charming is an alternative garage rock band that is gaining some serious traction in the Vancouver music scene. Led by vocalist, lyricist, and on-stage acrobat Casey Wei, this band knows how to pack a dance floor.

The Pages are an 11-piece funk/drum&bass ensemble with a full horn section and a smoky, rocking sound. Among their top influences: Dr Teeth and the Electric Mayhem.

Both bands play all original material, and have more energy than you can handle! Round it out with a two-set explosion with the Carnival Band and the Carnival Dancers, and you have a Friday night to remember. Cost is only $10 in advance, $12 at the door.

Passion For Justice

This Thursday, November 6th, The Carnival Band is pairing up with Pivot Legal and the Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society to bring you Passion For Justice. The event is a fund raiser for Pivot, a non-profit law society based in the downtown eastside whose mandate is to take a strategic approach to social change, using the law to address the root causes that undermine the quality of life of those most on the margins.

What's even better than supporting a fabulous cause like this? Doing it with burlesque in the Supreme Court! Come on down for a fabulous evening of entertainment. The address is 800 Hornby, and the event will run from 6 to 9 pm.
