Trevor Moore has finally found his niche. He moved around as a kid, hitting Cranbrook and Vancouver as well as Prince George. He even swapped high schools in his last year and half. But photography seems to be the place where he’s found stability.
A group of like-minded P.G. residents have banded together to expand the city’s dance music scene, realizing they could do more damage to the boundaries as a team. “FOCVS Events has been about two years in the making,” said founder and talent buyer DJ Jimi Smyth. “We’re very lucky to have a music scene full of passionate, like-minded individuals, so working together made a lot of sense.”
Beginning with their first battle of the bands at UNBC in the early 2000s – where the prize was to open for Sum 41 at CN Centre – to their most recent win this summer at the Generator, brothers Lauren Matthew and Stuart James have mastered conquering a live audience.
For the past year, the events co-ordinator for the Treasure Cove Casino and Hotel has been steadily building a repertoire of acts and events to rival any other venue in the city. Sequestered from the blinking lights and ringing slot machines, the casino’s Show Lounge is a fully kitted out performance space capable of offering unique entertainment experiences. What people may not realize is that Treasure Cove is more than just a place to gamble. “It’s a night out. It’s an entertainment facility, whether your gamble or not,” said Chandler. The offerings have come a long way since she first started working at the gaming facility in 1997, back when it was smoke-filled room in the rear of the Ramada hotel. “You’ve got the restaurant on site, it’s basically a one-stop shop. You can come in, you can have dinner, you can grab a beer, see a show. If you are into gambling you can play. It’s a great social atmosphere.” The show lounge, which can seat 180 for dinner or up to 200 with a theatre-style set up, is already a key spot on the comedy circuit – Brent Butt and Pauly Shore have also both played the room. It can host live bands, such as Econoline Crush and popular tribute acts, murder mysteries and fundraising dinners.
Fans of hit TV shows like “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “The X-Files” and “Babylon 5” take note: your geekend dreams are about to come true! Hot on the heels of last year’s successful steampunk-themed Lost in Time event, Barkerville Historic Town is proud to announce the return of all things geek-chic… and this year, thanks to an exclusive partnership with the Prince George Citizen’s The Scene PG magazine, Barkerville’s geekend is going to be bigger and better than ever.
Just because the uninitiated think it’s a wall of noise doesn’t mean there wasn’t a lot of thought put into that metal track. “Putting together a complex metal song takes a lot more effort than it seems,” said Trevor Pottle. For the past nine years, Pottle and his band of brothers – James Coyle (percussion), Ross Williams (guitar) and Joel Fowler (bass) – have formed Axis Disrupt, which could very well be the city’s longeststanding metal band.
