The Spring Up is the result of fortunate timing, grapefruit Perrier, a shared high school obsession with Outkast’s Aquemeni, and a couple of sessions at Skratch Bastid‘s Toronto studio this April. The 5 track collection marks a moment in time for the pair; embodying the spirit of Spring and also serving as a sort of prelude to Shad‘s upcoming full-length, to which Skratch Bastid also contributes. The collection features a production assist from DJ Jazzy Jeff, and a turn on the mic from compatriot Cadence Weapon.

As an avid fan of horror and sci-fi, I am a straight up sucker for the “last man on earth” scenario. Here, MC e.d.g.e. regales a tale of a man interacting and reminiscing of the past whilst destined for the “Survivor’s Divide” in a post-apocalyptic metropolis. Somebody get e.d.g.e. a movie deal.

Basing the song loosely around King Tee’s original ‘I got it bad y’all’, his love for Cariboo and his hatred towards sucky, cornball ass, wannabe Emcee’s, Mr. Archive takes you with him for a trip around his old stomping grounds, stopping at local pub’s and beer stores as he shot guns as many beers as humanly possible.
The good people at CoalitionSkin present a gathering of some of the city’s best graffiti artists. Kaput, Crums, Cameo, Ben One, Wars, Oaph, Noway, Admit, Ache and more will be featured with music by DJ O.D.P(ete). Come on down to The PussyShop (424 Homer Street) for the abundance vodka, gin, tequila, Cariboo brewskis and, maybe, pussy.

Screening of ‘ The 100 Block’ by Andy Fiore
‘The 100 Block,’ picks up the thread of our 2011 feature ‘10 City Blocks,’ with more hard-hitting, poignant and gritty stories of sex trade work in the Downtown East Side of Vancouver. New tales are told by the women we followed in our first film. We talk to new workers, and they share their often bleak stories with us. Where did they come from? What choices led them to a life on the streets? How do they manage to survive in an often dangerous and brutal environment? The viewer is also allowed to hear the other side of the story, as the men who pay for sex are interviewed. And finally, with valuable insight into the plight of drug addicted sex workers, we are fortunate to feature the opinions and input of Dr. Gabor Mate, noted author and expert on issues of addiction.
Discussion and Q&A by Dr.Gabor Mate
Gabor Maté M.D. is a physician and bestselling author whose books have been published in nearly twenty languages worldwide. Dr. Maté is highly sought after for his expertise on a range of topics, from addiction and attention deficit disorder (ADD) to mind-body wellness, adolescent mental health, and parenting.
Limited space available
Proceeds from this event will donated to “Jen’s Kitchen”
Jen’s Kitchen is a food relief and outreach services program to survival sex workers in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
Jen and her volunteers walk the streets handing out food and doing spiritual warfare.
