Billie Zizi and Special Guests
Saturday April 21, 2018  |  9:00 PM
Legion, 1116 6th Avenue

If you’ve ever spiraled through the heaviness and lightness of love, then you can get behind Billie Zizi’s new album Moon of Honey (2016). This tour-de-force carries all the agonies and ecstasies of all those late night spent alone in your room waiting for your lover to call. Her sound is heady mix of dirty-soul-indie-jazz-pop—and these tracks give off serious bedroom vibes.

Billie Zizi was born on April 4th 1989 in dusty Edmonton, Alberta to a fiddle player (Cam Neufeld) and an abstract painter (Marianne Watchel). Taught to live and breathe art from a young age, Zizi took notes from her father on music-making and learnt how to paint from her mother. After high school, Zizi went to Grant MacEwan University for music, graduating in 2009. Zizi has traveled the world—living, working, and traveling through West Africa, Asia, Europe. In 2010, she did a busking tour with her father that began in Turkey, moved through Eastern Europe, and ended in France where they attended Samois, a festival in celebration of Django Reinhardt.

In 2015, Zizi received a 10k20 Ralwco Recording Grant and, that same year, successfully released her first studio album Gun Metal Dress. In Penguin Eggs, Tom Murray enthusiastically describes it as “a fine first album, laying down ground work for what will no doubt be one of the country’s most inventive voices for years to come.” Her side projects include work on The Gadjo Collective, The Black Wonders, Gypsy Jive, and Jive is Dead. Zizi lists her musical influences as her dad, insomnia, and love. She still likes to paint and she creates her own album art. Notable festival appearances include Ness Creek Music Festival (Big River), Alianate Arts Festival (Iqaluit Nunavut), North Country Fair (Driftpile), Sasquatch Gathering (Rangeton Park), The WorksFestival (Edmonton), Heart of the City Music Festival (Edmonton), Road to Django (Grand Prairie), Artists on the Rail (VIA Rail), Wild Mountain Music Festival (Hinton), South Country Fair (Fort Macloud).

Zizi’s work has low-key obsessive quality. Her layered, cyclical sounds give the impression of someone whose thoughts are on repeat. Speaking about her process, Zizi remarks, “Looping is unwieldy…It can really go south on you. I’ve been lost in a terrifying loopland before.” Listening to Moon of Honey, there is nothing terrifying about this loopland—Zizi has brawled with her demons and created a lush country of sound out of them. Listen in and hear the sun filter in through the blinds.

Freedom of the City Parade
Saturday April 21, 2018  |  10:30 AM
Downtown (starts at 150 Brunswick Street, down 2nd Avenue and along George street to City Hall and Canada Games Plaza)

The parade begins at the Kopar Building on 150 Brunswick Street and proceeds down 2nd Avenue to George Street and then to City Hall and the Canada Games Plaza. 

City to bestow Freedom of City upon Rocky Mountain Rangers

Parade, ceremony, and banquet on April 21

Unlike the awarding of Freedom of the City to other worthy individuals or organizations, bestowing the distinction to a military unit has associated traditions dating back hundreds of years to the days when military units were not allowed to enter cities at night without the permission of the local government.

Consequently, the granting of Freedom of the City to the Rocky Mountain Rangers will involve a ‘March to City Hall’ on the morning of Saturday, April 21, followed by a ceremony in front of City Hall, and a special dinner that evening at the Prince George Conference and Civic Centre. The parade will include members of the local RCMP who will formally “allow passage” of the Regiment into the city, a formal knocking on the door of City Hall by the Commanding Officer of the Regiment, and an official inspection of the troops by Mayor Hall. Lieutenant-General Paul Wynnyk, Commander of the Canadian Army, will also be in attendance at the events.

The parade will begin at about 10:25am at the Kopar Building at 150 Brunswick Street and proceed down 2nd Avenue to George Street. From there, the Regiment will march down George Street to the Cenotaph at City Hall where the ceremonies will commence. Following the ceremonies, the parade will continue on to Canada Games Plaza before returning down Brunswick Street and disbanding at the Kopar Building.

About the event

The City of Prince George is bestowing Freedom of the City, the highest award Council can bestow upon a citizen or organization, upon the Rocky Mountain Rangers.

"This award is Council’s highest honour and recognizes exceptional merit and contribution," says Lyn Hall, Mayor of Prince George. "Granting of this distinction recognizes the Rocky Mountain Rangers’ history, presence in our community, and contributions both locally and nationally. On behalf of Council, I would like to congratulate and thank the Rangers for their contributions to Prince George and to Canada."

The Rocky Mountain Rangers are a Primary Reserve infantry regiment of the Canadian Armed Forces based at JR Vicars Armoury in Kamloops. The Rangers train and provide infantry soldiers to meet the operational requirements of the Canadian Armed Forces. Prince George was previously home to “A” Company of the Rocky Mountain Rangers, but the Company was relocated in Kamloops in 1970. In 2011, “B” Company was activated in Prince George due in large part to efforts from citizen volunteers in Prince George dedicated to bringing the Army back to Prince George following its 41-year absence. 

“B” Company currently includes about 60 citizen-soldiers, many of whom recently served in “Operation LENTUS,” the Canadian Armed Forces’ operation to bring relief and assistance to the communities affected by 2017’s devastating Cariboo wildfires. Previously, the City of Prince George also bestowed Freedom of the City upon the Royal Canadian Army Cadets Corps, which maintains an affiliation with the Rocky Mountain Rangers.

“Receiving the Freedom of a City is the most prestigious honour a Regiment can receive from a City – it is symbolic of the trust and partnership held between our Regiment and the City of Prince George,” says Lieutenant-Colonel Normand Dionne, Commanding Officer of the Rocky Mountain Rangers. “The soldiers of Prince George and the Regiment as a whole are extremely proud to receive this recognition.”

THE DECOYS

The Decoys are a Canadian rock band based out of Kamloops, BC. Though the musical influences of each member of the group varies greatly, the core of the band takes it’s musical roots from the classic rock of the 60s and 70s; the spirit of artists like Led Zeppelin, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Neil Young can be found at the heart of the band. The group consists of Matt Stanley on guitar and vocals, Sean Poissant on drums and Sean Schneidert on Bass.

The origins of The Decoys began in 2008, when Stanley self-released his debut recording, “The Life & Times EP.” Originally intending the EP to be a collection of folk songs, he later pursued a more rock based sound due to encouragement from producer Henry Small (Prism, Scrubbaloe Caine, John Entwisle Band). Shortly after the release of “The Life & Times” in October of 2008 Stanley formed the beginning of what would soon become The Decoys. Drummer Sean Poissant joined the band in May of 2010 and by the following month they began recording their first full-length album, “Stripped, Bare, And On Display”. Co-produced by Henry Small, “Stripped, Bare, And On Display” was released in August of 2011 with The singles “I Know”, “Modern Disaster” and “Why You Gotta Talk To Me Like That?” receiving steady airplay on many stations in Western Canada.

The Decoys released their sophomore album, “In Our Blood”, in April of 2016. Featuring the singles “Don’t Hesitate”, “The Underdog” and the title track, the album created lots of buzz about the band. With the addition of bassist Sean Schneider, The Decoys toured Canada heavily in 2016 in support of “In Our Blood”, gaining rave reviews from critics and fans across the country.

Theatre Northwest: The Best Brothers
Wednesday May 2, 2018
Theatre Northwest, #36-556 North Nechako Rd

Tuesday-Saturday performances begin at 8pm. Matinees on Saturday and Sunday begin at 2pm.

After losing their free-spirited mother in a freak accident involving a large drag queen named Pina Colada, brothers Kyle and Hamilton Best have to find a way to work together to make the final arrangements.  Polar opposites, Hamilton and Kyle are hampered by past resentments and the age-old sibling-rivalry question “Who did Mom love best?”

In this 2012 hysterical comedy by famed Canadian playwright Daniel MacIvor (whose play How it Works was one of TNW’s best attended shows!) two brothers reunite to gain a better understanding regarding their relationship with her, each other, and the family dog. A play for anyone who has had a mother, brother, or dog!
