The line up for the second installment of Rain City Chronicles has been announced! (Coming from a journalism background, that’s not a good leading sentence ’cause it’s past tense. But it’s the sentiment that I’m stressing so forgive me and read on.)
RCC is an on-going storytelling night that was co-founded by Karen Pinchin and Lizzy Karp and me (all pictured above.) Storytellers are given up to seven minutes to tell a story about the evening’s theme. This time around, the theme is luck. It takes place on Monday, March 29th at the Western Front, 7 p.m.
So here’s who’s going to be on the bill:
Actor Nadiya Chettiar
Comedian, activist and author Charlie Demers
CBC Radio 3 host Lana Gay
Communications whiz Pamela Hart
Guardian blogger Colin Horgan
Vancouver Is Awesome founder Bob Kronbauer
Globe and Mail reporter Marsha Lederman
Journalist Erin Millar
Librarian Rebecca Slaven, accompanied by Andre of The Obvious Peaks and Valleys
With musical guest and former P3 interviewee Louise Burns aka Moonshiner!
CANNOT WAIT! ALL CAPS EXCITED!

Ayma and Elly here. We decided to trepidatiously launch our new project, which might be sketch comedy related. Comedy. What a word.
It’s called Rape Whistle Fan Club and it’s basically us doing a variety of stuff that makes us laugh and hopefully you too.
On this episode we debut the Scat Explosion, a talk show entirely inspired by Randy Bachman’s CBC program Vinyl Tap. (Please click on that link. It’s amazing.)
We’re hoping to get on a bill for our live performance debut some time soon. We’ll keep you posted via the Facebook fan page we’ll inevitably create and force our friends to join.

One of the things I’ve been working hard on recently is a storytelling night called Rain City Chronicles. We had our first event on December 1st at Little Mountain Studios. It was a great success. We’ve got nothing but really positive feedback and it seems like the city is ready for this kind of thing. We plan on doing it every season so the next one should be in March. This special episode of P3 features stories by CBC Radio 3‘s Grant Lawrence, who talked about his first experience with a pacific octopus…
Talent Time‘s Paul Anthony, who talks about his first parentless road trip…
