The Fugitives

The Fugitives, established in 2007, have released four records, which have been nominated for multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards and a Western Canadian Music Award. Their previous album, Everything Will Happen, spent ten weeks on the top ten Canadian folk charts, and earned them a support slot across Western Canada with Buffy Sainte-Marie and an appearance at UK’s Glastonbury Festival. Their follow-up, The Promise of Strangers, is set for release on January 26th on Borealis Records.

 

"Grown Ups Have it Easy" - Our Benefit Show for Green Thumb Theatre

Hey all, The Fugitives are headed back to England this November. Hurrah hurrah! But right before we go we are doing a benefit show for Green Thumb Theatre - an awesome organization that brings amazing progressive theatre productions into high schools. The theme of the event is "Grownups Have it Easy". It is a celebration of how easy it is to be a grownup. We will play an intimate, awesome, off mic set. Plus, there will be special guests: Vancouver fringe festival phenom Travis Bernhardt doing magic!

Award-winning novelist Pete McCormack doing storytime!

There will also be BALLOON ANIMALS, FACE PAINTING, and a MASSAGE CORNER, and LIVE BODY WAXING (see below).

It takes place on Sunday, October 21st at Little Mountain Studios.

All of this, and it's only ten bucks!

But wait. There's more. Brendan and Adrian are running concurrent fundraising campaigns. If Adrian raises one thousand bucks before the show, Brendan will wax his chest live onstage. If Brendan raises a grand, Adrian has to wax his legs onstage.

See Brendan's campaign

See Adrian's campaign If you're coming to the show, donate in advance to make sure they SUFFER. This will be tons of fun, but mainly, we love Green Thumb Theatre. They provide arts to schools in a time when they are going through massive budget crunches that are gutting school arts programs. We NEED THEM IN OUR SCHOOLS. So come to the show and make a donation. Woot woot! And thanks.
