The Children's Hour

February 22, 2018, 7:30pm - March 10, 2018, 11:00pm

GPLT brings The Children’s Hour by Lillian Hellman to life from February 22 to March 10. This play is so full of raw human emotion and turmoil that it was banned in Boston, Chicago and throughout the whole of Great Britain after it’s successful run on Broadway in 1934. This play is still topical today, Set in a fictional New England town in the 1930s, The Children’s Hour tells the story of two women who are unjustly accused of homosexual activity by one of their students. Their lives quickly unravel as they become social pariahs. The Children’s Hour explores the way mass psychology can be manipulated to serve falsehood.

Five Alarm Funk - FRI

February 23, 2018, 7:00pm - February 24, 2018, 2:00am

Five Alarm Funk at Better Than Fred's (with special guests TBA) Fri Feb 23 (also on Sat Feb 24) $20 Advance Doors at 7 pm . >>Tickets on sale Friday Nov 3 at Better Than Fred's, Revolution Place and online at tickets.revolutionplace.com/ . www.fivealarmfunk.com . Five Alarm Funk: Hot, sweaty dance floors with feet stomping and every body moving. Grooves for days. Monster horns, crushing percussion and shredding psych-rock guitars. These are among the elements that make up the Five Alarm Funk experience. The Vancouver-based band is nine men strong and over a decade deep into a career that has seen it release five acclaimed albums and burn up stages across the country on four national tours. And this vehicle isn’t about to slow down. In fact, Five Alarm Funk is just picking up steam. Don’t be fooled by the name: there’s more to Five Alarm Funk than, well, funk. Just ask drummer Tayo Branston, who says that, although they are rooted in the style that gives the outfit its name, he and his bandmates thrive on being able to transcend that genre by seamlessly mixing in elements of Gypsy rock, Latin music, ska, and even prog-metal. “I would say that it’s intense, passionate, and fun, genre-spanning music that really anybody can get onboard with,” Tayo says. “It’s got such an array of different sounds, and you can tell that each player has his own individual take and input into each track.” Need proof? Take a listen to any of Five Alarm Funk’s studio albums, which include Anything Is Possible (winner of Instrumental Album of the Year at the 2011 Western Canadian Music Awards) and Rock the Sky (which was nominated for Instrumental Recording of the Year at the 2013 WCMAs and Instrumental Album of the Year at that year’s Juno Awards.) The band took the album’s Balkan-inspired horns, prog-metal six-string shredding, and ambitious, cinematic arrangements on tour across Canada and into the United States in the summer of 2014. And the road goes ever on. FAF’s fifth studio LP, released last June, is the hard-rocking Abandon Earth. Produced by Ben Kaplan (Mother Mother, Biffy Clyro), Abandon Earth is a concept record about the destruction of Earth by a giant tyrannical robot. In 2015, Abandon Earth won a Western Canadian Music Award for Instrumental Recording of the Year, with Kaplan also garnering nominations for his engineering and production. In 2016, the album’s single Robot was nominated for a Leo Award for music video of the year. The band also released their first live album/DVD ‘LIVE’ In The Moment in 2016 and toured across Canada and the USA in support. Five Alarm Funk will hit the studio again this winter, with a new record slated for next spring, and after that? Well, the plan is to take on the entire planet, but FAF will be happy to get the party started in the U.S. And Europe. Not to mention Australia and New Zealand. “If we can capture those audiences like we’ve captured Canada, I think the band would have a huge opportunity to make year-long tours happen,” Tayo says. “We love to play!”Doors at 7 pm Five Alarm Funk: Hot, sweaty dance floors with feet stomping and every body moving.
