They’re making a concert film of the show and need your beautiful faces all over that ish. So don your flyest spacesuits and come aboard the haze-fueled rocketship. The takeoff cloud will be for the people (that’s you).

Atherton (the synonym for Hip Hop in Ottawa) will be holdin’ it down all night on the 1s and 2s. Dum Dum will kick it all off with some grimey golden-era rap, followed by underdog-powerhouse vocalist The Unkwn and the multi-talented, multi-faceted SORU, both of DeadRinger, all up on the mic. Then Bars and Tone will shut it down with the performance of their lives before handing the reigns back to Atherton, at which point we’ll wrap up the gear and have a drink with all of you beautiful people. Doors open at 10pm, admission is $5 at the door.

Founded in late 2007 by performance artists alaskaB and Ruby Kato Attwood, YT // ST is an Asian, Indigenous and Diasporic Art Collective. Montrealers have known them to put on dazzling musical theatre performances in giant monochrome paper sets, sometimes in far out places, like the Montreal Eaton Centre Food Court at 2AM. Aesthetically, they blend the poorly appropriated styles of Noh, Chinese Opera, Chinese, Japanese and First Nations Mythology, Black & White Television, Psychedelia & Rock Operatics into a sensory feast of nigh-monochromatic costuming, unique hand-built musical instruments and their own mangaesque cardboard ‘NEVERFLAT’ style of 2.5D set design.

Check them out on Thursday, November 7th – 8pm, with The Yips and Blue Angel.
