Red Gate Community Update January 2017


The rumours are true. The Red Gate Arts Society has opened up a second front in our battle to save creative culture in Vancouver. In addition to our "Red Gate Classic" location on East Hastings, we're launching the Red Gate Revue Stage aka  "Granville Island International Airport", at 1601 Johnston St. on Granville Island, beginning on Saturday January 14th at 8PM. Cover is $10 but no one turned away for lack of funds, and free for Red Gate members! ($20/year, available at the door.)  Still working out some of the technical and organizational details, so we're holding off on our official launch event until February, but we're ramping things up with a series of experimental electro/acoustic performances, including Quiet City #31, featuring some visiting artists and some of our favorite local talents. Full details below. For some background about how this opportunity came about, and where we're trying to take it, VANDOCUMENT has just published an interview which goes into all that and more.  For booking enquiries, contact redgaterevuestage (at)
