Starts Friday, March 14 I Vic + Flo Saw a BearSeattle, Washington

Winner of the 2013 Silver Bear (Alfred Bauer Prize) at the Berlin International Film Festival, Quebecois multi-hyphenate talent Denis Côté’s seventh feature tells the darkly mysterious tale of two lesbian ex-cons, Victoria and Florence, trying to make a new life in the backwoods of Quebec. Seeking peace and quiet, the couple slowly begin to feel under siege, as Vic’s probation office keeps unexpectedly popping up, and a strange woman in the neighborhood soon turns out to be an increasingly menacing shadow from Flo’s past. With its collection of complex and eccentric characters, unexpected plot twists and unsettling humor, Côté has created an original film that is traumatizing, uplifting and utterly breathtaking.

Wednesday, November 27 I The 3rd Annual Vogue Retorspective with Feast, Palooka and Ancient WarlocksSeattle, Washington   Feast was one of those “coulda been” groups that never broke out 291357-250of the underground. Originally called Feast of Friends after a William Blake poem, the band showcased Tom Mick on vocals, Dan Blossom on guitar, Jane Higgins on bass, and Dan Peters on drums.

Feast was extremely charismatic live, with Mick playing the active front man. The band’s sound combined the Deep Six punk/metal hybrid with postpunk. In 1986 Feast had become a top draw at The Central. “Feast was always one of my favorite bands,” promoter Claudia Gehrke states in an email. “… they had a very heavy sound. I remember when I [booked a show with] Soundgarden and Feast together. Feast was the headliner at the time, and then we found out that Soundgarden was getting scoped out for a record deal. We had to switch the lineup to Soundgarden playing at the headliner time. It was a huge night. Both bands were great. Feast was a guaranteed heavy hitter. [They had] great posters, stepping out into their own brand of art and music. I wish I had seen them get signed. They always had a great crowd.”
