Top 5 things to do this Wednesday in Vancouver

April 1, 2015

Get supportive: Matt Mays, Dustin Bentall, Adam Baldwin and the Odds hit the Imperial tonight to pay tribute to the late Jay Smith, who committed suicide in 2013 while on tour with Mays and left behind two children. The benefit celebrates Smiths’ life with music and raises money for the Unison Benevolent Fund, which offers counselling services for people working in the music industry who are struggling with mental illness.

Go off to Tangent: Commercial Drive’s Tangent Café hosts a free night of stand-up comedy headlined by James Kennedy and featuring Brent Constantine, Fatima Dhowre, Randee Neumeyer, Stacey McLachlan
Kyle Bottom, Levi McCachen and Shawn Polnik. Word is there may be guest appearance from some big star in town filming some big movie although we’re pretty sure Ryan Reynolds, as funny as he can be on screen, doesn’t do stand-up.

Do the time warp again: The Rio Theatre hosts a special science fiction double feature picture show of Richard O’Brien’s durable cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show with added colour provided by the wild and untamed Geekenders.

Get Chekhovian: Playwright Christopher Durang takes some of Anton Chekhov’s more famous characters and plunks them down in the digital age with Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, continues tonight at the Arts Club’s Stanley Theatre.

Check out some dancing: The Con8 Collective teams up with Julianne Chapple, Ziyian Kwan and MAYCE in collaboration with Janelle Reid at the Scotiaband Dance Centre for 12 Minutes Max for dance performance with a maximum length of, you guessed it, 12 minutes.
