the frank theatre company is excited to kick off 2015 with a hip-hop themed community-building cabaret honouring the late, great Amy Winehouse, featuring some of Vancouver’s finest LGBTTQ artists. The evening will be hosted by the forever-fabulous Delica C as the talented, enigmatic and ill-fated Ms. Winehouse.
This promises to be a lively celebration of LGBTTQ music, writing and art including readings and performances by award-winning author Amber Dawn (How Poetry Saved My Life: A Hustler’s Memoir), Daniel Zomparelli aka DJ That’s So Raven, trans poet and activist Antonette Rea, author Aaron Chan and singer/songwriter Oliver O’Dea. And audiences will get to sing along to their favourite Winehouse tunes!
Alongside the Cabaret there will also be a silent auction for those who like to get their claws out and jump on a good deal, with prizes from The Arts Club, Hub Restaurant, The Float House and Vancouver Opera, just to name a few.
Date: Friday January 23rd, 2015
Time: Doors open at 7:30pm, show starts at 8pm
Location: The Junction Pub, 1138 Davie St., Vancouver
Tickets: $10 at brownpapertickets.com or at the door
