Locals swarm FemmeFest 

Inaugural event rocks three venues

On May 31, numerous bands swarmed the Visulite Theatre, SK Net Cafe and Double Door Inn for a female-based festival – the inaugural FemmeFest.

With art, poetry and a ton of music, the event benefited Shelter Health Services and drew in a large crowd of support at each venue.

From solo acoustic performers such as Bridgit Scheide, Erika Blatnik and Mieka Pauley to the piano driven performance of Nicolette Emanuelle; from the packed house that watched The Near Misses and a late night performance by The Lights, Fluorescent to the rock of Lindy Dobbins & the Red Velvet Manx and an unbelievable set from Gigi Dover & The Big Love (who else can rock the sitar?), the event showcased a ton of musical talent from the Queen City and points further out.

Hopefully, the event will become annual. It's off to a great start!
