The world-renowned "Low-Brow Road Show" is putting on their 2nd annual Voodoo Ball in their own backyard with an early show on Sat, Feb 9th (7pm doors, 8pm show). Big John Bates and s-Careoline will break out the Ouija board and hold a seance to contact the old spirits of garage, blues and rock 'n' roll... behold as they transform the Red Room into a blues-infused bayou, resurrecting the ghosts of debaucheries past, complete with burlesque, bands and a zombie procession! Wild costumes are encouraged, and prizes will be awarded to the most outrageous "Mardi Gras Fabulous" with gifts from Sweet Soul Designs, Riot City Clothing and Jagermeister as well as special "hoodoo bags" for the first 50 people through the door!

BIG JOHN BATES & The VOODOO DOLLZ are throwing a scorching hotrod burlesque rock 'n' roll blues party full of non-stop voodoo action with the help of upright bass spanker sCare-oline and the Voodoo Dollz dancers! Touring North America and Europe over the past year in support of their latest CD "Take Your Medicine", BJB and the Dollz just brought their "Carn-Evil and Sexy Side Show" to a sold out crowd at Whistler for New Year's Eve, as well as entertaining 4000 enthusiastic converts at the Northern Alberta Country Fair. Armed with their usual bag full of tricks as well as burlesque performers recruited from Sweet Soul, Cross'd Lovers and the Starlet Harlots all wrapped up and presented to you by Vancouver's reigning voodoo queen, Little Miss Risk, get ready to drink, dance and party! .

MIKEY MANVILLE - Join The MANVILS' charismatic frontman with his band as they perform songs from his solo side project CD "Broken Arms". Mikey has been spreading his intense musical sermon across North America, seducing audiences with emotions that simmer between the surface of every note as he storms across the stage crazed by musical incantations. Manville released his much-anticipated sophomore solo album this past summer to a great reception at his sold-out CD release show. The struggles and excitement of his musical journey were mirrored by a physical journey that included a brutal studio fire and several run-ins with the law. Regrettably along the way, several wonderful vintage guitars and amps bit the dust, their only worldly legacy surviving in "Broken Arms".
