The impending passing of Tragically Hip singer Gord Downie hits especially close for the country’s creators.

Every small town has that one café everyone frequents. By frequent, I stress because of the quality of the food, not because it’s a gym for Pokémon Go.

The Metro Comedy Circuit has awoken from a sleep of many years, and it started with a belly laugh not a titter.

Start band. Record album. Invest in band swag. Buy a touring van. Have a CD release concert. Go on tour.

Steampunk came to Barkerville like a slow boil. The historic town is rooted in the wild west and industrial Victorian era - exactly the canvas on which the steampunk movement is painted.

To an outsider, Metallion would look like a modern day Mongol horde, celebrating after a victorious battle. Long hair, beards, tattoos, and beer filled drinking horns.

Ani Kyd has always been bigger than her surroundings. When she lived in the Lower Mainland, she was always the brashy and brassy one even in the flashy punk and metal scenes where she was a star.

It took a lot for Dayna Slater to bring her art out into the public to be seen.

The Black Donkey Café is the downtown eatery you can really use. When this restaurant has themes and promotions, it is almost never about the food on the menu or the hot beverages on the feature board. Their themes are about activities. Owner Chris Blackier recognized there were plenty of places to go and eat things. Few of them offered a place to also do things. Music, art, games and entertainment are on the Black Donkey menu, and they are usually free of charge.

The classic rock ‘n’ roll scene of Prince George has suffered contractions in the past 10 years or so. It’s harder for a group like Audio Union and the fans of crunchy guitars and clobbering drums to find each other, but when they got to open for Honeymoon Suite this summer, it was clear that people love their stuff. Before the headliners even took the stage, the sold-out crowd was electrified and called Audio Union back for an encore - nearly unheard of for an opening act.

From a young age, Chelsea Gibson knew she had the power to help people. As a child, Gibson may not have understood what that power was, but she knew people were hurting and she wanted to make them feel better.

If there is one merchant in Prince George ready-made for Northern FanCon, one store to rule them all, it is Great White.

Andy Poon was scribbling away at his teenage hobby. Life as an extra in the movie industry is interminable boredom, most of the time, and this was only Day 1 of a five-day shoot for the second X-Men film.

AT NORTHERN FANCON YOU CAN
GET A DATE AT GEEK SPEED

PAINTER AMIE STOLTZ Is Splattering FanCon with Empire Force

On a cursory glance, one might offer Kelsy Polnik a wide berth, crossing streets upon his approach, expecting him to offer something illicit.

An intoxicating event shines like a gem from the heart of Northern FanCon. The latest book in the Amethyst franchise will be released to the world that same weekend, and founder / head writer Chris Dias will launch it exclusively at FanCon before the rest of the universe gets to see it.

There are stars who come to Northern FanCon and then there are stars who would pay to come to Northern FanCon.

Kay Pike’s bags are already packed for Prince George. The professional cosplayer, one of Canada’s most notable costume players, came last year to demonstrate her skills and showcase her art.

LOS ANGELES – Tuesday April 19, 2016 – Nitro Circus Live returned to the United States this weekend with spectacular shows at Shreveport, Louisiana’s Independence Stadium and Little Rock, Arkansas’ War Memorial Stadium, the first stops on its marathon 2016 North American tour.
