1000 Petal Lotus is dedicated to creating synergy through sourcing unlike samples, melodies and rhythms to create something bold and powerful. The 1000 petals of a lotus translate to all the ways that experience can be interpreted. Keeping perspective and potential the core values of the project, the outcome is something unpredictable that cannot be limited to any one genre.

Baby Jay, Elder Sister plum, Julia & The Spectacles, A.M. @ Copper Owl Jan 10 2019 - Dec 9th @ Copper Owl
1900
$10 at the door only.
4 women led solo or duo projects packed into one intimate Thursday night.
*
Elder Sister Plum is Tanya Semple, a queer folk musician and songwriter based out of Victoria, BC. Elder Sister Plum uses subtle guitar playing and emotionally charged lyrics to pour her heart out and let you wade in the waters of her inner world. Her swashbuckling folk lullabies and musical ghost stories provide a dreamy landscape that anyone can get lost in
https://eldersisterplum.bandcamp.com/?fbclid=IwAR2dc5TOsz9BcE-Ki9zc524GmpdVPQyBQIx49cz2C6zNTcNqJ7BoXdLYvdE
*
Julia & The Spectacles are Julia Knight, a ukulele, guitar pedals, and everything else she dreams up. And her glasses. Knight is a former resident of South Dakota, where she devoted herself to studying the trumpet in a small college town of 25,000. Her love of film scores, mussette accordion and The Flaming Lips ultimately led her mind to roam outside the world of embouchures and marching band.

*
A.M.
The debut performance of A.M. (soon to be formerly known as Anna Jacquet), is a long awaited, slow and sultry folk groove mystery.
*
Baby Jay is husband and wife duo Jocelyne and Greg Block, featuring double electric guitar with lots of grit and silky smooth vocals. Channeling early rock and roll, slow dances, and a little bit of wild west / pirate opera, they bring lawless beauty, pulsing rhythms and ripping solos wherever they go.

On January 24th, Pam Stewart will be releasing an all new set of spoken word entitled, "The I Am/We Are Comedy Tour" to celebrate the release of her new book of essays, "I Really Thought It Would Be Easier Than This."

The night will feature sets from local musicians Cluny MacPherson and Fraea The Banshee and, to cap the evening, DJ Nova Jade will be playing a set for all of us in attendance to dance our cares away to.

It's going to be dreamy. It's going to be January. It's going to be worth showing up for.

For advance tickets, e-transfer $10 to postscripters@gmail.com (no hidden ticketing fees!).

Show starts at 8pm sharp. We'll be mingling and getting cozy beforehand though, join us!
