So, I’m off to see WhyRobotsMakeBetterLovers at the Globe Theatre tonight. It’s previewed, in somewhat amorphous terms, in our Feb. 25 print and on-line editions. I use the word amorphous because when I spoke with two of the three participating artists (Johanna Bundon and Lee Henderson) they were still in the early stages of putting the finishing touches on the performance. Plus, as I note in the preview, WhyRobotsMakeBetterLovers has a component of structured improv to it, with the artists (Barbara Pallamino is the third performer) drawing inspiration from the audience. Each night, the audience is different. So each night, the performance is different. I’ll post a short review of the piece tomorrow.
Also on tonight is the second evening of the Mid-Winter Blues Festival. Tonight’s gig is at the Royal Sask Museum, and features headliner Sonny Landreth. For info on him check out pp. 18 of the Feb. 25 Planet S on our website. Also on tonight, the Winnipeg ska/punk band Subcity is at O’Hanlon’s Pub.
