BAD ENGINE - Book Launch.
Michael Dennis has been writing and publishing 40 years, and for the past four years has been reviewing a book of poetry every two days for his blog Today's Book of Poetry.
Now it's time to celebrate Michael's biggest and most exciting book to date — Bad Engine: New and Selected Poems, edited and introduced by Stuart Ross, hot off the Anvil Press!
Tonight, several special guests from the Ottawa poetry community — including Sandra Ridley, Stephen Brockwell and Pearl Pirie — will be reading Michael's poems before Michael himself takes the floor.
The evening will be hosted by Michael's long-time friend and collaborator Stuart Ross.
Books will be for sale. Astonishing conversation will occur. There will be laughs and maybe even tears. And all in the beautifully eccentric coziness of the Avant Garde Bar, whose food and drink menu is an event in itself.
Please join us!

Hailing from Fredericton, New Brunswick, The Monteith Brothers are a rock band of the groovy stoner variety.
They play old-school rock and roll with a funky prog element. Our act consists of flamboyant flashy 70's/80's clothing, saw blades on the drum kit (they sound like bells :D), hypnotizing guitar work and multi-harmonic high-vocals that you won't believe they are actually doing. They are full of good energy on and off-stage and they are a fun, respectful bunch of people.

Bad Channels
Nick Grottick and Jess Gierusz have been collaborating as Bad Channels since 2012, working mostly as experimental rap producers. Now, they've shifted their focus to original material, and "Sad Channels" effectively mixes the sinister with the sublime. It begins with an anxious drum machine loop and threateningly heavy riffs, but once the reverb-soaked vocals enter, it becomes hauntingly beautiful.

"ZONES have mastered the rich textures of melting melodies and afternoon horseshoes after summer class with your stoned friends."
