Vancouver arts and culture magazine celebrates one year anniversary
Sad Mag launch party
Despite all odds against the magazine industry, Vancouver’s very own Sad Mag has survived its first year in print. To celebrate, Sad Mag will be brought to life for one night of crazy artsy fun, and if it’s anything like their launch party last year, this is a bash not to be missed.
Saturday, October 9, 2010

Hosted by CBC Radio 3’s Lana Gay, Sad Mag Live will feature live, on-stage interviews with some of Vancouver’s most innovative young artists, organizers and performers, including:
Graeme Berglund – artist and founder/creative director of The Cheaper Show. This formerly underexposed painter and illustrator had a lightbulb moment a few years back when he and some friends decided to host their own art show poking fun at traditional high-brow affairs. Their creation? The Cheaper Show, a popular showcase of emerging and established local artists. Highlights include beer, affordable art and funky venues.
Dave Deveau – actor and managing director of Zee Zee Theatre. Remember Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid of the Dark? with Elisha Cuthbert? This guy spent two seaons around the campfire with our quintessential Canadian gal-next-door… among other much, more impressive things of course.
Lizzy Karp – storyteller and co-founder of Rain City Chronicles. A comfortable, community space for sharing stories, Rain City Chronicles is a series of storytelling nights featuring Vancouverites from all pockets of life, from buddy down the street that just sold you a CD to that TV actress you swear lives over at Cambie and Broadway. Everyone has a great story!
Cameron Reed – musician and director of Music Waste. This guy has his fingers in all sorts of creative pots; he’s a writer, dj/producer (Babe Rainbow), music marketing consultant and festival director of Music Waste and the Victory Square Block Party.
Also catch special live performances by slam poet and singer Barbara Adler, new media artist Sammy Chien, singer-songwriter Jasper Sloane Yip and drag performer Isolde N. Barron.
The fifth issue of the quarterly Vancouver arts and culture magazine, which showcases writers and artists, will be released at the anniversary party on Saturday, October 9. Special to this issue are Douglas Coupland-inspired depictions of the city by local artists and designers.
Tickets to the event are $18 and can be purchased online from The Cultch online or at the venue box office. Proceeds from the night’s event will go back into the Sad Mag Writers & Artists Fund to keep the content flowing. The cost of your ticket includes a copy of the new issue.
