This show by B.C.-based folk singer Kate Reid (pictured) is being presented by Grassroots Regina. It goes tonight at the SCES Club at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $12, and there will also be an opening set by Chris Sleightholm.
To give you a sense of what Reid’s like, here’s video from 2011 of her performing “When I Was a Little Boy” at Hugh’s Room in Toronto.
Also on at the Club tonight is a book launch for Undisclosed: Secrets of the AIDS Epidemic. It’s a new book by Marlin Marynick (author of Charles Manson NOW) and Michal Milstein that, with the 30th anniversary of the first cases of HIV/AIDS being diagnosed upon us, looks at the possible origins of HIV/AIDS in a theory by Dr. Alan Cantwell that it arose from a hepatitis B vaccine trial in New York City in the late 1970s that deliberately targeted young gay males with an infectious virus. For more on Cantwill’s theory, here’s a link to an interview with him.
