STELLAR DJS, EXTRAORDINAY LIBATIONS, PRIZES FOR BEST WEARABLE ART

In homage to the days of taking over a warehouse (courtesy of our friends at WS Tyler) and getting dressed up all freaky-like, NAC is throwing a party in memory of STRUTT. The STRUTT Wearable Art Show was a community favourite, a highlight in the fall calendar, and we miss it! Don’t get us wrong, this party doesn’t signal the end of all things STRUTT, it’s just a friendly reminder that $t. Ca$hrines knows how to have a good time. So put on your craziest outfit à la wearable art and join us at The Odd Fellows’ Temple to get your dance on.

Described as energetic and melodic free jazz inspired by musicians like Ornette Coleman, Archie Shepp, Pharoah Sanders and John Carter, Norway’s Friends & Neighbors create an authentic and acoustic atmosphere that refers back to the political roots of free jazz.
 
Through original and strong compositions, this has resulted in a band sound with strong identity, crystal clear presence and personality. 
 
Their second release Hymn for a Hungry Nation was received with 4 1/2 out of 5 stars in DownBeat Magazine.

OPEN HOUSE: Membership Month!

kNACkerds!

We’re inviting all NAC members to come on down, bring some friends, and show the place off. It’s a free night of music and dancing on the Thomas Craig Oliver Terrace with Parisian melodies and beats for rumpshakers provided by our own DJ Mo-Tang!

We open the doors downstairs at 7PM on Saturday 25 June, and then move the affair top floor before 9PM.

A wonderful summer evening is in store.

You are also welcome to consider this the ideal opportunity to introduce your friends to NAC and beg, bribe, hound, pester, and badger them into becoming a member. Yes we take money in all its many forms: cash, interac, credit cards, Canadian Tire money, and gold bullion.

Hope to see lots out Saturday!

SMALL FEATS 2016

SMALL FEATS 2016
Saturday 9 April 2016
Doors at 8PM / VIP Preview at 7:40PM
Largest Art Exhibit + Sale in Niagara

> ONLINE PREVIEW HERE <

BELIEVE THE HYPE!

The SMALL FEATS show and sale is NAC’s largest annual fundraiser and an assured rocking good time in beautiful downtown St. Catharines-on-the-parking-lot. Every year NAC challenges our artist members to create killer-diller visual art no larger than one square foot. These are veritable OXO cubes of artistry, the sweet and condensed distillations of visual expression. They pack a wallop but they’re small enough to hang almost anywhere in your house: in the hall, beside the fridge, in front of the TV, or hey, stick one up in the car.

Stay tuned for a preview of the show here!

The Sadies at Silver Spire: Fri 5 Feb 2016

THE SADIES
Friday 5 February 2016 | Doors at 8PM
Silver Spire United Church – Next door to NAC!

Physical tickets available at Mindbomb Records

If you’re seeking affirmation that despite the fading potency of rock ‘n’ roll it still bashes through the hardened slurry of mundanity with ground quaking authority akin to John Henry’s last mighty sledge hammer swings, you owe it to yourself to behold The Sadies.

A few years back, for the In the Soil Festival, The Sadies blew-up the Mikado clipping breakers no one knew were in the joint. Shortly after, they brought their ton-weight of guitars to bear on the twenty-thirteen incarnation of STRUTT, diesel powering the affair into legend.

On February fifth, The Sadies’ll be in the auditorium of the Silver Spire United Church, right beside your friendly neighbourhood artist-run centre on St. Paul Street.  The show is co-presented by Indoor Shoes and NAC. Witness, and you too may testify!

Special thanks to the folks at The Silver Spire United Church for hosting the night!
