Our amazing music-makers:

Rhythmicon
You can instantly recognize him on stage: gun fingers in the air, firing off samples, sweeping FX and rewinding tracks. Victoria's resident badman Rhythmicon started his record collection in high school and has spent 15 years forming his particular style. Since then he has been at the core of the bass music scene, collaborating with The Big Reds and the influential sub|division crew. Rhythmicon has shared the stage with taste makers Zed Bias, Mumdance, Pinch, Kahn, Sam Binga, received DJ support from Skream, held residencies at Lucky Bar, Hush, The Reef, and has been a favorite at music festivals such as Rifflandia, Bass Coast, Tall Tree and Soundwave. His sets span across underground styles of grime, dubstep, drum & bass, jungle, footwork, garage and funky. Rhythmicon is also one half of Hi-Q Sound System, a multi-instrumental dub act featuring live manipulated beats, trumpet, synths, melodica and bass guitar.

Tarantist
Get stoked, folks! Tarantist has returned to the island after a year and a half in the interior; he is absolutely chuffed to back with the people who fill his heart. Inspired by the melding of minimal UK production and West Coast Bass Music, Tarantist’s sound is deep, dark and driving. Interested in developing pieces based on sounds recorded from the world around him, his production uses found sounds as a basis to create a variety of broken beat rhythms. He focuses on drum & bass, and halftime, while also exploring the world of theatrical sound design through productions like Damn Spot Theatre's Wyrd Sisters (Dance Piece of the Year, Victoria Fringe Festival 2015). Tarantist seeks primarily to express his love of movement through high energy journeys, challenging audiences to lose themselves on the way. It's not about blowing minds, it's about shrinking heads.

This showcase is a chance for all performers and attendees to be present and in the moment. Tongue n' Cheek relish the opportunity to create and share this fun & sensual afternoon of entertainment with you! As such, we require that ***NO PHOTOGRAPHY OR VIDEOS*** be taken of any of the performances without EXPLICIT permission and knowledge of the performers. We have a professional photographer lined up for the showcase should any performers wish to have photographs for memory keepsakes. Please respect our request and honour your experience by being present in the moment.

**We ask for your support in creating a safe and consent-based container for the evening. This venue is special and audience members have the option of cuddling up to watch the show. Please explicitly ask before initiating movement into someone else's personal space. Remember that we all have different levels of comfort, as well as diverse desires and needs. It's really, really important to ask! It's not nerdy, it's not silly, it's completely vital. Please come speak with a member of Tongue n Cheek or one of our lovely volunteers if you have any concerns during the event.**

Accessibility: Studio Robazzo has a small set of stairs (`~8 steps total) to get into the space. The DJ booth/dancefloor is up a flight of stairs, but there will be a small amount of space to dance downstairs. The bathroom is downstairs. It is an unconventional and intimate venue. If you have any concerns about comfort/accessibility please email us at tonguencheekburlesque@gmail.com

Tongue n' Cheek is a performance troupe based out of Victoria, British Columbia. These creatures have been spicing up the stage together for the past 5 years. By fusing together their very diverse dance backgrounds and mutual love of expressive and authentic movement, they have created a very sensual and unique style of burlesque. Tongue n’ Cheek aims to create opportunities for the community to explore themselves and their desires in a safe and supportive space. To them, sex positivity includes celebrating the human body and revelling in our delicious human-ness. This supports Tongue n’ Cheek to perform their sexuality on their own terms - dancing together gives them the opportunity to determine their creative expressions and the freedom to engage with desires. Come and celebrate this evening with us!

Jun & Kombucha Workshop: Special 4/20 Edition

Have you tried JUN? Jun is kombucha's more sophisticated cousin that eats raw honey and green tea, instead of sugar and black tea! Now you can learn from the experts and brew it yourself at home! 
 

20160216-DSC_0109.jpg


UNITY JUN is excited to announce our JUN MAKING WORKSHOP at Studio Robazzo on Friday, April 20** at 1pm! In this workshop, we will cover, discuss and demo the full process of brewing Jun (and the simpler parallel process of brewing Kombucha). We'll teach you how to flavour your brews, bottle your bevvies, and develop the fizz. You will taste a LOT of delicious Jun in this workshop... and emerge as an uplifted, inspired probiotic peace warrior! 

You have a few payment options:
1. $60 DIY Probiotic EmPowerment! - includes the workshop, your choice of Jun or Kombucha SCOBY (reg. $33/$25) and Unity Jun's home-made instruction manual (written and illustrated by Cierra, reg. $10) 
2. $25 just the workshop, no SCOBY or booklet
3. $80 includes the workshop, plus the full SCOBY LOVE KIT containing your choice of Kombucha or Jun SCOBY (reg. $25/$33), Unity Jun's home-made instruction manual (written and illustrated by Cierra, reg. $10), gallon jar for brewing, merino cloth screen, and premium organic green tea from Jagasilk (same one we use in our lab) 

Please register by emailing love@unityjun.com with your name, a brief summary of your previous experience (if any), any other information you want me to have about you, any accessibility questions or concerns, and an e-transfer for the option you chose. Remember to tell me the password for the etransfer :-)

If you do not want to attend a workshop but you still want to make Jun at home, you can also just buy the SCOBY LOVE KIT for $55 which includes 1 Jun SCOBY, the instruction manual written and illustrated by Cierra, a merino cloth screen, a gallon jar for brewing, premium organic green tea from Jagasilk (same as we use in our lab), and an elastic band. To order just email love@unityjun.com

**This Workshop Takes Place on 4/20
**Cannabis Fans Please Take Note:
This will be a special workshop because it takes place on 4/20, the international day of cannabis appreciation! Our workshop will be welcoming to those celebrating as well as to those abstaining or uninterested :-) Studio Robazzo is across the street from Centennial Square (where the city's main 4/20 celebrations will be taking place) and the workshop will finish up well before 4:20pm giving you plenty of time to check out the festivities before the climactic moment. If you aren't into cannabis, don't worry, the workshop itself is smoke-free :-)

I hope to see you at the workshop! Thanks for your interest in Unity Jun!

Victoria Design Nerd Jam: Upcycled Urbanism

 Event graphics designed by Studio Robazzo

Event graphics designed by Studio Robazzo

Victoria Design Nerds would like to invite you to our first Nerd Jam: Upcycled Urbanism!

What is a “Nerd Jam”?
A Nerd Jam is an idea factory. It’s a fun, fast, creative brainstorming session intended to create a range of diverse visions that address an issue. In the design, architecture and urban planning fields, Jams are employed as one of the many stages of a larger planning,strategy and design process undertaken by the lead design organization and stakeholders involved in a project. By changing the way we think and interact, we change the way we behave and respond to complex problems, therefore creating the social, urban and environmental transformation we seek. 

A Jam has two functions:
1 Collaborative Rapid Idea Generation
2 Participant Empowerment

So with that in mind....

How might you upcycle and/or memorialize the Blue Bridge? 
How might we as a community, improve our city through design and place-making, while respecting the past? 

Join us for this fun and engaging event to brainstorm ideas and re-image this iconic symbol of Victoria. 

This is a free event. Potluck and BYOB. 

RSVP at Eventbrite:
https://www.eventbrite.com/e/upcycled-urbanism-tickets-44131327990

Hope you can make it!

Hosted by Victoria Design Nerds and Studio Robazzo.

Welcome to LowTown. 

 Welcome to LowTown.

Welcome to LowTown.

The lost neighbourhood between Chinatown and Rock Bay, LowTown extends North-South from Bay to Chatham, and East-West from Blanshard to Store Street. This gritty, industrious hood is fast becoming one of the city's new 'it' districts. Filled with parties, desgin studios, autobody shops, breweries, digital fabrication, robots, car lots, art galleries, public murals, and serious attitude, LowTown ain't no Fairfield. 

For the 2017 Integrate Arts Festival, Studio Robazzo has teamed up with two talented young urban photographers from Assignment Magazine to capture the unique urban idenity of Victoria's newest district through an evocative photo exhibit. 

Stop by the Studio for the unveiling LowTown's graphic identiy, photography by Daniel Tolsma and Jon Chow, a LowTown photo series by Victoria Fashion Week, and don't miss the chance to get your hands on the very first limited edition LowTown merch! 

And, of course, music and dranks. Welcome to LowTown.

Undercurrents: A night of indie techno

FRIVOLOUS ⭐ ESMI VILLA ⭐ WORLD PANTHER

Early Bird Tickets  

Find your way to the loft of Studio Robazzo for a night filled with warm, silky smooth undercurrents of live electronic music with our special guests :

Frivolous (Berlin / Gabriola Island)
Aside from being "kind of a big deal" Daniel Gardner is a composer, and live performance mastermind behind the complex, emotionally charged and intimate indie-techno act known as Frivolous. With all the leftover jetlag time from his last tour, Frivolous has been crafting a new EP and Victoria is getting the North American debut!

Esmi Villa (Leningrad / West Coast)
Forged in the billows of Leningrad's underground, Esmi has developed an impeccable, uncompromising ear for great music and an insatiable appetite for after partying (we are happy to comply on both accounts). The bigger news is she will be signing off of her 20s with this special set and the best way to celebrate her birthday is to come out, stay late and get down.

World Panther (Victoria)
Wild and highly improvisational, World Panther lurks in the concrete jungle. I ran into this enigmatic electronic duo on my way to a show, plugged into a street light, jamming on some synths, in a world of their own.

Noble Wolves' Bio
http://noblewolves.com/
Nobles Wolves blend atmospheric nuances to hard-hitting rock tunes. Five very different friends aim to create sounds that have never been heard before, taking shared influences from Radiohead, U2, and Foals while adding their signature sound to create something singular and beautiful.


Lakelse's Bio
https://www.lakelse.com/
Lakelse (pronounced lake-else) is an independent and alternative rock band based out of Victoria, BC. Formed in late 2014 by singer/guitarist Nash Park, bassist Dylan Powell, guitarist Graham Schibli and percussionist Kevin Wiebe. Hoping to incite self-reflection and a collective celebration Lakelse’s sound uses a combination of heavy slow moving guitar riffs layered with grandiose synthesizer, and honest, soaring lyrics. Intending to blend dramatic intimacy with explosive dynamics Lakelse’s sound puts the listener in a place of both comfort and unease. These intentions are ever present in their first official release, The Prospect of the Dream EP.
Recorded in early 2015 The Prospect of the Dream EP is a truly independent venture from beginning to end. The five tracks featured on the EP were written, produced, recorded and mixed by Lakelse and mastered by Jonathan Anderson (Aidan Knight, We Are The City). Invoking feelings of hope, community and the frustrations of a changing perspective, The Prospect of the Dream EP is a production full of both love and conviction.
