Full Metal Jacket

Saturday, March 12 at 8:15pm PST

Stanley Kubrick’s under-seen (and under-appreciated) FULL METAL JACKET is an unflinching two-act stunner, and deserves its rightful place among the top films ever made about America’s involvement in Vietnam. Based on Gustav Hasford’s novel ‘The Short Timers,’ the story unfolds from the perspective of a young marine (Matthew Modine), whose transitional war experience takes him from training into active duty. Beyond its position in the canon of such an esteemed director as Kubrick, FULL METAL JACKET is perhaps best known for the iconic performance of former US marine-turned-actor Ronald Lee Ermey and his brutally caustic turn as drill instructor Sgt. Hartman. Also starring Vincent D’Onofrio.

Brickhouse CD Release Show

Saturday, March 19 at 8pm PDT

Brickhouse, arguably Vancouver’s favourite Blues Funk Band is set to release their newest album “Future” on Saturday March 19, 2016 with a show at the
Rio Theatre on West Broadway.

Brickhouse developed an intensely loyal following through their 12-year house gig at The Yale Hotel. The loss of that regular house gig meant a big change to the band; and Brickhouse has had to work hard to remain relevant in a city that pays a lot of homage to the hottest new, young thing. Recording a new studio album seemed like the most logical next step and surprisingly, going into the studio was a great bonding experience for Rob, Ray, Neil, Darryl, Oz and Ed. An experience that seemed to energize the band and to celebrate over a decade of great music made together.

FUTURE is an album of songs that grew out of gigging and collaborating live; and although Rob wrote just about every song; the band is known for giving each other enough space to let each of their musicianship affect the overall vibe of every tune and that is Brickhouse’s brand; a mix of Funk, R&B, and Blues. The result is a collection of great tunes that will get inside your head and stay there until you’re dancing like everyone else.
