(Thursday, 7Pm): “CAMBODIA: THE VIRGINITY TRADE” (2009, 60mins) and “THE GIRLS OF PHNOM PENH” (2009, 52 mins) by UK filmmaker Matthew Watson. They are the compelling and utterly alarming account of the lives of girls and women affected by the virginity trade that exists in Cambodia today.
Attention, music lovers! This Friday (3rd) at 8PM we are hosting an exclusive live concert by the American band BLUESBERRY JAM in cooperation with Kingdom Breweries. Their “TRAVELING MEDICINE SHOW” features upbeat songs from the tradition of Folk, Blues, Jazz, and other “Roots” music.
Medicine Shows were a popular form of entertainment all throughout America during the 1800’s and the precursor to later traveling circuses, carnivals and vaudeville shows. “Patented” herbal potions were pedalled by unscrupulous salesmen, which gave rise to the infamous “Snake Oil Sellers” who flourished during this era. A collection of laminated vintage “Medicine Show” posters is on display in our “Art Café” from 6PM.
