We like to think we’re pretty serious about entertainment here at the CAC. We heard from you that you wanted more live shows, and we’re delivering. Now, you might wonder about timing two shows one after the other. It’s the way booking busy artists goes sometimes, and well, as the saying goes: when it rains, it really does pour. Pours incredible talent, that is!


Lorne Elliott presents The Upside of the Downturn

The great thing about these concerts is their diversity. First up on Wednesday, October 19th, award-winning playwright, humorist and musician Lorne Elliott returns to the Gibraltar Room at 7 pm. Lorne’s one-man concert presentation, The Upside of the Downturn, is foolish, witty and thought-provoking. He combines dry humour with musical parodies and skits. Lorne is a shrewd observer of the human animal. Often self-deprecating, always silly and never profane, Lorne’s funny is family friendly for ages 9 to 99. You’ll be sure to get a kick out of his latest musings on life in these turbulent times. Tickets for this show can be found at The Open Book, The Station House Gallery and Kit and Kaboodle. General Admission is $20, $15 for seniors and students.


Rup Sidhu brings his one man-show, The Human Radio, to LCS October 20th.

We’re so excited about Rup Loops, a.k.a. Rup Sidhu, performing on Thursday October 20th at the Williams Lake Campus of Lake City Secondary at 7 pm (640 Carson Drive). Rup is a multi-talented performer and artist who has an incredible energy and cultural perspective. His live shows blend hip-hop, Bhangra, classical Indian music, beat-box and live-looping. The message is positive and the sound is uplifting. It’s an all ages show and tickets are available at Red Shreds and the LCS Williams Lake Campus office. $15 for adults, $10 for students.

Rup will be presenting his latest show, The Human Radio.  “The Human Radio will take you on a journey of sound exploring anatomy, geography and culture. Let’s investigate the brilliant design of our auditory and aural systems that allow us to create and listen to music. Through body percussion and beatboxing, Rup demonstrates and teaches how the human form is indeed a musical instrument. With a mix of hip-hop, blues and bhangra, the Human Radio tunes into themes of home, identity, culture, justice, dignity and celebration.”
