Fiona’s CMF 2012 picks: Saturday March 24, 2012

The 30th Annual Canadian Music Week is winding down. A lot of stuff was going on this year — one of the most notable things was the comeback of Canadian rock group, Treble Charger. Do you remember their single from 2000, American Psycho? Oh man, the nostalgia. Anyways, here are my picks for tonight.

** Be sure to follow me on Twitter @feeonalui and @awmusicblog for live tweets from tonight’s CMF festivities! 🙂

Girl Walk // All Day at NFB Cinema. 18+. Doors 8:30PM.

Girl Walk // All Day is a feature-length dance music video and tale of urban exploration that follow three dancers across New York City. They turn the city’s sidewalks, parks, and stadiums into an evolving stage as a story of rebellion, love, and discovery unfolds. Shot entirely in public spaces, and funded entirely by crowd-sourcing, Girl Walk // All Day is a statement about the power of community and public space. Set to the album All Day by mashup musician Girl Talk, it’s also an insanely fun love letter to New York.” – Description from CMF Info page

Girl Talk – Oh No

Housse De Racket w/ Nightbox and Grahmzilla at Wrongbar. 19+. 11PM – 2AM.

This evening dance-friendly set at Wrongbar is sure to be a fun one. Housse De Racket, a French electro-rock duo recently released their second album, Alesia, via Kitsuné. I can’t wait to strap on my dancing shoes and shimmy the night away to Housse De Racket, Nightbox and Grahmzilla (originally from electro-rap duo Thunderheist). It’s going to be HOT in Wrongbar tonight.

Rock The Cause

ROCK THE CAUSE with us on Friday March 30th, 2012 at 8:00pm at the Dominion House! (Windsor, Ontario

3 AMAZING bands: Against All Evil, Aurelia, and Ravenscode will be providing the ROCK, $13.50 pitchers of beer, $6.50 mini-pitchers (INCLUDING MIXED DRINKS!!) all night, and raffles for great prizes like LCBO gift cards, restaurant vouchers, spa and beauty gift cards, Pistons tickets and all kinds of other stuff!

During the summer of 2011, Co-Organizer Nickie Soucie traveled to Libode, South Africa to do research on violence against women at an organization called Soul Winners Support Centre for Women and Children (registered (057-288 NPO).

A major problem in Libode is the lack of independence on the part of women. This in turn creates dependency of women on men in their lives, which prevents them from leaving situations of abuse and exposes them to unwanted sexual contact and AIDS/HIV.

The money from this fundraiser will be used to turn a small concrete building in the middle of rural Libode, into a functioning support center.

The event’s main goal however is to fund the purchase of 3 sewing machines, and an embroidery machine. We also aim to train at least 100 women and girls with the new sewing and embroidery machines, so that they can learn a method of income generation, as well as increase their confidence and self-worth. We also hope to start a vegetable garden to support child headed families and women living with HIV/AIDS, since those people are generally unemployable due to stigma and health breakdown.

This has been successful in many other local villages, and with your help and support, we think it will also be successful in Libode!

Tickets only $7 in advance, and $10 at the door! Email for advance tickets.
