Sky Parallel

Nancy O’s will be hosting two great acts on August 22nd that are definitely worth checking out!

Sky Parallel is the musical fusion of violinist Sara Fitzpatrick and singer-songwriter Sarah Noni. Together they create dynamically beautiful pieces, with inspiration from various music genres including folk, indy, electro-folk and more. With their violin, guitar, and voices, the duo creates rhythmical songs that both push the boundaries of music while simultaneously enrapturing audiences everywhere.

Sky Parallel's debut single, “Body Between” is available now in all digital stores, and they will be releasing their full length album this fall. They have performed at a few Canadian music festivals this summer and will be heading to Europe this September for a short tour.

They will be joined by the upbeat and entertaining music of Banjoman. Maxim Cossette delights audiences with his fun and engaging glimpses of life. No matter where he preforms, he always manages to pull people out onto the dancefloor.

It’s a $10 cover at the door for this performance and the show starts at 8pm.

Craig Cardiff at Nancy O's

Singer-songwriter Craig Cardiff will be returning to Prince George, BC on August 18th for an evening performance at Nancy O's.

With a voice described as “warm, scratched, sad and sleepy,” Cardiff sings songs that expose the human condition, putting a magnifying glass to the clumsier and less proud moments. He can turn any setting into an intimate affair, infusing his music and lyrics with an uncompromising humanism.

His most recent album, Love Is Louder (Than All This Noise) offers 21 tracks that are connected by an underlying sense that when you are going through a tough time there are better days to come.

Cardiff makes it a point to keep the relationship with his fans personal, inviting and accepting any opportunity to make his audience as much a part of the performance as he is.

Tickets are available at Nancy O´s. $20 in advance $25 at the door and the show starts at 9:00pm. For more info click HERE

Today's Top Wikipedia Edit: US Police Officers Advocated for Vehicular Ramming on Twitter

According to Wikipedia:

  • "Early in 1852, Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, by then very deaf, gave Derby's first government its nickname by shouting "Who? Who?" as the list of inexperienced Cabinet Ministers was read out in the House of Lords"
  • "By printing a notice on the page, such as 'This page has been intentionally left blank," test-takers will not be concerned that their test has been misprinted.... These pages may also be useful as scratch paper"
  • "Vehicular ramming has sometimes been advocated as a means to deal with protesters who block public roadways.... Two police officers were suspended and fired...for tweeting such advice in relation to Black Lives Matter rallies.... North Dakota state legislator Keith Kempenich tried and failed to pass a law granting immunity to drivers who accidentally hit protesters.... Similar legislation has been introduced in Florida and Texas"
