In celebration of our recent incorporation as The Memewar Arts & Publishing Society, Memewar Magazine invites you to join us for a night of comedy! Clearly, the mass of legal paperwork involved with becoming a non-profit society was anything but funny, so we needed to host a fundraising event which would let us laugh away our bureaucratic nightmares.

Place: Café Deux Soleils (2096 Commercial Drive)
Featuring: comedy performances by Antoinette Keane, James Masters, Christopher James, and Andrew von Rosenbach, improv from Dangerous Portion, and special video presentations by Man Hussy.

Who: Heather Watson (Civixen), Gonzo Journalist and former columnist at the late Terminal City
“We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-coloured uppers, downers, screamers, laughers and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.”
Hunter S. Thompson
Well, we probably won’t have that, but we will have a great introduction to indigenous Vancouver Gonzo journalism with the hyperkinetic and internationally infamous Heather Watson, alias Civixen (http://www.civixen.com/ and http://cvxn.tumblr.com). Coming at you straight down the Mojo Wire at 95 miles per hour, it’ll be an evening of raw, uncut literary power. Bare-knuckling her way up the ladder from the wide open frontier of the Wild West to the mean streets of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, Heather has seen it all, done most of it, and has a damn hell solid alibi for everything else.
