About

The annual West End Cultural Fun-raiser Show returns to our stage on Saturday March 23rd. Join us for a spectacular four band bill in support of Winnipeg’s favourite music venue. The evening will include performances from local favourites Leaf Rapids, Sheena & Daniel from Red Moon Road, French Class, and Bloc Parents.

Leaf Rapids is Keri Latimer’s (previously from JUNO recipients, Nathan) opportunity to croon about vultures circling their prey, barbershop stabbings, and love letters from smallpox quarantines in her disconcertingly sweet voice. Their sound has been described as ‘Cinematic Folk’ and includes the eerie sound of the theremin. Add in a stellar band: Chris Dunn on guitar, Devin Latimer on bass, and Joanna Miller on drums, and you’ve got a sonic treat not to be missed.

Sheena and Daniel make up 2/3rds of the local trio Red Moon Road. Though lacking their usual second Daniel, the duo still packs their well-known wit and intense musicality. Another duo on stage that we’re looking forward to is the local, electro pop outfit French Class. The synth/vocal pairing of Megumi Kimata and Tiana Garcia will undoubtably happy your brought your dancing shoes.

Fronted by members of Novillero and The Sorels, Bloc Parents had their start as a one- off tribute to LA band X and led to self-penned tunes that subscribed to that same male/female vocal dynamic. They describe themselves as a mod/powerpop foundation stone thrown into a post-punk well.

This diverse lineup of great Winnipeg bands are all coming together for the same reason - to support and lift up the West End Cultural Centre so that we can continue to promote the great music coming out of Winnipeg.
