Pick of the Day: Vertigo Reading Series

With summer slowly seeping into existence tonight will be the season finale for Vertigo. To wind up things in style an extra special line-up has been assembled.

First off, the musical guest is Regina singer-songwriter Tyler Gilbert (see video for his song “Break Free” below).

On the lit side, there’s a special guest in the form of Ottawa poet Pearl Pirie. She’ll be joined by two emerging Regina artists Cassidy McFadzean (sister of Prairie Dog illustrator Dakota) and Evie Ruddy. Regina’s newly crowned Slam Poetry Team will also take the stage with Leslie Cochrane, Johnny Trinh, Micaella Joy, Cat Abenstein and Shayna Stock all performing a piece.

Also in the works is a Canadian writer-themed trivia contest and a raffle. And it all starts at Crave Kitchen + Wine Bar (1925 Victoria Ave.) tonight at 7:30 p.m.
