Its FIGHT NIGHT at #NSFWcc. This bare-knuckle-piano-based-brawl pits Edana “The Tempest” Higham* against Luke “Hands of Stone” Bell in a death defying, virtuoso battle royale. Guaranteed KNOCK-OUT! In keeping with the shows hardcore underground nature this production will be MC’d/refereed by Ottawa’s own Teri Loretto.
Music by Stockhausen, Cage, Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Barber, and a new work by Frederic Lacroix
*in place of the traditional “pre concert talk” we have opted for a “pre concert trash talk”… listener discretion is advised.
Plan to arrive 10 mins early so you can get yourself a ringside seat. Tickets at door. PWYC.
