Pick of the Day: Kate Reid

This show by B.C.-based folk singer Kate Reid (pictured) is being presented by Grassroots Regina. It goes tonight at the SCES Club at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $12, and there will also be an opening set by Chris Sleightholm.

To give you a sense of what Reid’s like, here’s video from 2011 of her performing “When I Was a Little Boy” at Hugh’s Room in Toronto.

Also on at the Club tonight is a book launch for Undisclosed: Secrets of the AIDS Epidemic. It’s a new book by Marlin Marynick (author of Charles Manson NOW) and Michal Milstein that, with the 30th anniversary of the first cases of HIV/AIDS being diagnosed upon us, looks at the possible origins of HIV/AIDS in a theory by Dr. Alan Cantwell that it arose from a hepatitis B vaccine trial in New York City in the late 1970s that deliberately targeted young gay males with an infectious virus. For more on Cantwill’s theory, here’s a link to an interview with him.

  1. Oh jesusmotherfuckinghell. Manmade HIV? Seriously? I don’t believe you’ve just forced me to waste a chunk of my day on the internet finding out how full of shit Cantwell is.

  2. Okay, post-cursory-fact-check: Seems Cantwell also believes that cancer is caused by “cancer microbes” and many of the sites that talk about him are blocked by my net security widget which flags them as potential attack sites — not good signs. Also, dude’s a retired dermatologist who’s been called “uninformed” by at least one reputable doctor, Paul Offit, author of Deadly Choices: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All.

    I don’t know. As far as Undisclosed is concerned… compiling memoirs of survivors of the Aids epidemic seems a noble and worthwhile endeavor. But holyfuck… spreading Cantwell’s dangerous, wackaloon conspiracy theories strikes me as, well, fucking irresponsible.

  3. That’s conspiracy theory #2; #1 was a deliberate attempt to annihilate black people. Bill Cosby subscribed to it, briefly.
