Save the date and mark your calendars for the seventh annual dig! magazine Rent Party takes over The Park Theatre on Thursday, November 17. Featuring live jazz and fantastic prizes, the night’s proceeds will go towards funding Winnipeg’s one-and-only jazz publication, now in its twelfth year!
Editor Steve Kirby thinks of dig! as “the eyes, ears, soul and voice of the community,” and he’s committed to keeping it free and readily accessible to the wider public. “Jazz is experiencing a renaissance here in Winnipeg,” he says, “and that’s partly because we have an interested and informed audience that really appreciates the music.”
Every year, jazz lovers pack the Park Theatre for the Rent Party. They come for the exciting stage performances by both students and professionals, and they soak up the spirited social time in the lobby, checking out the rainbow auction, getting their pictures taken in front of the dig! banner, enjoying the musical repartee of various small ensembles.
A rent party pays the proverbial landlord, so not only will you experience the best jazz this city has to offer, you’ll also be supporting dig! magazine as it continues to share the news—for free—in the Jazz Capital of Canada!
