Silence Presents: Ha!Man and Joke

September 22, 2018

Doors at 7:30 PM
Show at 8:00 PM
Tickets $15 at the door.


South Africa’s “HA!Man” is joined by Belgian word artist and actress Joke Debaere bringing the “HA!Show” to local communities in three continents every year. They literally carry worlds within as it has grown and evolved over two decades. Each performance is unique, yet draws on a stable body of original electronic accompaniments, evoking concert halls, festive sounds, intimate acoustic textures and a broad range of feelings. This spontaneously enacted journey takes each audience through an intense and life-affirming experience and can open up to be interactive and participatory, depending on the group. Not much more can be said, as live creativity has to draw on the unknown from where each and everyone can be deeply surprised. Bring instruments along and open hearts. For many, a HA! experience is long remembered. Visit

Tragedy Ann

September 6, 2018

Doors at 7:00 PM
Show at 7:30 PM

$10/PWYC at the door.

The music of Guelph folk duo Tragedy Ann inspires chills, provokes smiles, and reminds you to breathe. With the occasional nod to alt. blues and handshake with contemporary folk-rock, Liv Cazzola and Braden Phelan intertwine the storytelling power of Tom Waits with the musical nuance of Mandolin Orange, crafting something simultaneously familiar and fresh.
Rooted in passionate vocal harmony, Tragedy Ann’s songs tackle topics from love-drunkenness to hospital visits with equal intimacy. Cazzola’s multi-instrumental menagerie and Phelan’s dynamic guitar flavours provide a lush backdrop to these powerful narratives, reminding you that you do indeed love the accordion—you just never heard it played this sweetly.
