dancing, swaying, and solving - not bad

Dance your way through a museum, sway to some soul...and strike terror into yourself as you solve a mystery. Are you up for it?
 
Not Just Bhangra - Saturday, October 22nd, 9:30am to 4:30pm at the Museum of Vancouver (1100 Chestnut Street in Kitsilano)
 
Right now, there's an exhibition put on by the Museum of Vancouver and the Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration Society called Bhangra.me: Vancouver's Bhangra StoryBhangra.me traces the major moments in the local bhangra scene, so in addition to early costumes, photos, rare videos and albums, the exhibition features interviews and memorabilia from international artists Jazzy B, Harbhajan Mann, Delhi 2 Dublin, En Karma, and more.
 
Bhangra.me was supposed to close this Sunday, October 23rd, but it's been extended to January 1st...and to celebrate, the Museum of Vancouver and the Vancouver International Bhangra Celebration Society are hosting a family-oriented day called Not Just Bhangra this Saturday - a day of food, performances, and interactive exhibition programming.  Mmm, tasty Indian snacks...
 
Not Just Bhangra is at the Museum of Vancouver tomorrow from 9:30 in the morning until 4:30 in the afternoon.
 
 
The Campbell Brothers - Saturday, October 22nd, 8pm, at The Vogue Theatre
 
 

The funky gospel group and masters of the steel guitar (called Sacred Steel), The Campbell Brothers, are here tomorrow night with special guest singer Joyce "Cinnamon" Jones.

These guys are 'real deal' Sacred Steel gospel blues legends - high energy, funky with plenty of soul. Sacred Steel emerged from the House of God Keith Dominion Church over 60 years ago - it's a little known gospel hybrid - but it didn't surface outside the church until The Campbell Brothers started touring extensively in the mid-1990s.

The Campbell Brothers are here tomorrow night with special guest singer Joyce "Cinnamon" Jones at 8 o'clock at the Vogue Theatre.

 
Judge Dee & The Haunted Garden - October 26th to the 31st, from 7 to 10 each night, at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden (578 Carrall Street)

For the first time ever, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is morphing into a terrifying Haunted House inspired by Robert Van Gulik's classic Judge Dee murder mysteries...and features nearly 30 actors, dancers, and musicians. So brave the garden's haunted pathways, uncover clues, then warm your bones at the old tea house as you piece together the crime...but WATCH OUT!!! because you never know what (or who) maybe lurking around the next corner. See if you and Judge Dee can solve the case before the next victim meets her gruesome fate!

Judge Dee & The Haunted Garden starts on Wednesday, October 26th and haunts Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden each night through Halloween - Monday, October 31st from 7 to 10 each of those nights.  It's NOT for young children or people who easily scare (did you go to the Van Helsing walk-thru tour at Universal Studios?  I was pretty close to losing it by the time I got out of there).
