Find the Others is a new project by international touring artist and songwriter Andy Sheppard.
Doors 7:30, show at 8pm.
We bring the canvas, you bring the color. Find The Others is a music and visual experience where the audience becomes part of the production. These are songs you don’t know, but they feel somehow familiar. Pictures that could easily be hanging on your wall.
Find The Others is a collective music and video project based in Toronto, with contributors from Los Angeles, Montreal, London, Brooklyn, and soon, from wherever you are. It’s a project that invites you to listen and watch, but also to add something of yourself to the experience.
The live touring show features mesmerizing video synchronized to mesmerizing music. Guitar, voice, drums, keys, and mysterious soundscapes that feel like they fell out of a film. The group expands and contracts; either Just Andy Sheppard with guitar, loop pedals and keyboards or a trio or four piece group.
The new album (to be released November 4, 2011) features performances from Snowblink (Bruce Penninsula MGMT, Owen Pallett), and drummer Jorn Andersen (Bruce Cockburn, David Wilcox, The Henrys).

Couple of years ago Mike Evin shared the floor with Kyra and Tuly. It was a lovely, warm night and we joyously open our doors again to host another performance with these artists.
Pop music has found a new piano man in Mike Evin. The Canadian singer-songwriter’s unwavering belief that a three-minute pop song can reaffirm one’s faith in life, love and music has earned him a devoted following throughout North America, and among some of Canada’s most renowned musicians as well, like Ron Sexsmith and Barenaked Ladies. Evin’s new and fifth recording, Do You Feel The World?, is full of catchy, well-produced piano pop songs, but retains that “live” energy so vital to his performances.
Kyra and Tully have been a long time coming. Like a beacon of love guiding us through a troubled world, Kyra and Tully’s music is set to inspire the next generation of bright-eyed lovers. Their folk-kissed, mellow pop music combines Tully’s timeless songs about visceral experiences in nature and away from home with Kyra’s unabashed sincerity in songs of love, loss and inspiration.

Kingston artist Lise Melhorn-Boe uses the medium of the artist’s book to examine the relationship between the environment and our health.
For many years we humans have been discovering, inventing and introducing new materials, technologies and products into our environment. Many of them are amazing, useful and life-enhancing, but many of them are also toxic or hazardous to our health. Endangered is an exhibition consisting of a series of artist’s books which examine various aspects of our lives, i.e. where we live, what we eat, what we throw out, how we bring up our children. Using a light-hearted visual esthetic, books such as Gypsy Moth and What’s for Dinner? bring serious issues to our attention. Pop-ups, familiar fabrics and objects (such as diapers and babies’ onesies, the plastic mesh bags in which produce is sometimes sold, paper dolls and doll houses) and the built-in “cuteness factor” are readily accessible and draw the reader/viewer into the often disturbing text.
