Starts @ 7:30pm.. Followed by the live music of CARMANAH (west-coast roots from Victoria). 9:30pm...Tickets $20 at the door or in advance at MELOmania.  Northern Grease is a must see for teenagers, as it's produced by 3 guys in their early 20's, and shows the challenges facing the environment due to heavy industrial energy projects, yet they have fun in the process by snowboarding and surfing the spots that are affected.  Carmanah'  just completed a 20 city tour of their new CD. The Sunshine Coast is fortunate to have them on this bill.
