Jazz and Space Cowboys

A self-identified millenial, Natalie Kilimnik takes our affection for Cowboy Bebop to a school presentation level and it rocks our world.  If you have any love for anime, space cowboys, or jazz this is DEFINITELY where you should be.

The One With a Dog on the Stage

@ VOL 31 ON SEP 14, 2017

That silence you hear at the beginning of this presentation is a vital component to its existence. You see, there was an actual, living breathing, fluffy as can be, dog on the stage. That silence was the entire audience collectively mooning over the adorable fur baby that stood as a living prop for James Turner's presentation.  It is PKN Winnipeg's sole duty in life now to make sure there is at least one dog per event night from this moment forward.  Proceed.

Swing on In

@ VOL 31 ON SEP 14, 2017

Swing dancing is an excellent source of entertainment, exercise, and big smiles.  If you've never seen it live you're probably missing out on an excessive use of jazz hands.  Christine St. Martin explains.
