Kinocular Vision
Kinocular Vision is Ottawa's finest film screening series, held every second Tuesday of the month at the Avant-Garde bar.

Grand Theft Ottawa
If you played stairway to heaven backwards, whilst running down a hill on a particularly windy day, playing an upright bass and singing Superfreak, you would get a sound that's nothing like GTO (that would just be silly, dangerous and probably very abrasive, which is like them in description alone). However, if you combined Funk, Progressive Rock and old school Rock 'n' Roll, you'd be more on track.
Prett Melberts
This foursome brings a punk / grunge sound that has has everyone dancing, and an energetic stage show no one can forget. Come witness our brand of rock!
Band Members
Sam Cowan (vox)
Arianne Dimond (guitar, vox)
Paul Melchin (bass)

Return of the Stern :: East
Returning to Avant-Garde for a night of groove music. For fans of funky music, this' the eastern sibling of Return of the Stern. For 6 years the band has been playing playing funky instrumental music and serving as the backing band for several local artists in and around Vancouver. It was and still is pretty slick.
