Daring Docudramedy

April 17

The docudramedy When the Storm Fades explores both fear and tragedy - the film finds laughter and tears as it follows a Filipino family’s journey to recover from the 2013 Typhoon Haiyan. Inspired by true stories, the project also features two misguided white saviour characters who provide both comedic relief and a dark look at the realities of voluntourism. Got questions? A panelist Q&A will follow the screening.

When: Wednesday, April 17 5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Where: Reliance Theatre
Cost: Free

Blowout Band

April 19

Despite their tour title “Finding it Hard to Smile,” lovelytheband has something to grin about - demand for their upcoming performance overwhelmed the original concert space, and they’ve since had to find a new home at the Commodore. Come to this indie pop band’s concert for their angsty teen look (and stay for their toe-tapping tunes).

When: Friday, April 19 8:00 p.m.
Where: Commodore Ballroom
Cost: From $34
