The Garden - FEMME WAVE VISUAL ART
5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Femme Wave is pleased to announce that The Garden, a one night only exhibition, will be kicking off the 2016 Visual Arts Programming!

The Garden, a thoughtful pop-up exhibition, is all ghosts, shadows, and flora. Assembled works from artists Angela Fermor, Jade Nasogaluak Carpenter, Janine Bennett, and May GN, intertwine creating an unexpected and charismatic environment within this empty storefront. Their work marks the space as charismatic, setting it apart from the mundane and conventional, and emboldens reflection and metaphor to prevail.

Another amazing project to come out of Edmonton’s Not Enough Fest, Truster strike the perfect balance of harsh noise and tenderness.

Regina, SK

Homo Monstrous is Regina’s only queercore fantasy band/performance art duo. They’ve been told they sound like an “aggressive Chad Vangaalen” and bill themselves as “gender carnage” so it’s tough to say what to expect out of their show. It’s easy to say it’ll be memorable, life-altering, mind-shattering, boundary-crossing, noisy, glitter grunge goodness.

The Garrys
12:00 am - 1:00 am

Saskatoon, SK

Oh my how much do we love The Garrys?! We can’t even tell you how much but here’s a try. This trio of sisters have dreamy harmonies on top of chilled out, prairie garage-psych, doom-wop hooks. If that doesn’t sound perfect, what does?! Their childhood influences of The Beach Boys, Ed Sullivan and The Shangri-Las ring true and lend a retro vibe to The Garrys catchy, surf tunes.

#1 Legion (Main Floor - Side Room)
Not Enough Fest Town Hall
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Facilitated by Bree Gardner
Participants: Open to all - no signup necessary

Not Enough Fest! is a festival dedicated to bringing queer, trans, non-binary, two-spirit, and femme folks together with practiced musicians from across Calgary to develop music skills, take up space, and collaborate. Providing accessible, all ages, dry, jam spaces for collaboration, as well as access to music equipment and skill development, this festival has most notably thrived in Edmonton, Portland, Winnipeg, Ottawa and other cities across North America. It is our focus to bring together a community of folks who have dreamed of putting together a band, but have been unable to do to lack of safer spaces, experience, ability, or access.

In our first year in Calgary, we welcome community members to come to our town hall meeting to experience Femme Wave's clinics, as well as provide insight into what you would want Not Enough Fest Calgary to look like. Through this interaction, we will be explaining in more detail what NEF Calgary will be taking on, as well as listening to concerns and desires of our impacted community. Participant and volunteer registration will be discussed, as well as a mailing list to keep updated with NEF Calgary.
