Pick of the Day: This Movie is Broken

Some pretty major Canadian talent is on display in this movie, which screens tonight at the RPL Theatre at 7 p.m., along with Saturday at 9 p.m. and Sunday at 7 p.m. To begin with, Bruce McDonald and Don McKellar are the director/writer. And featured is the Toronto rock collective Broken Social Scene.

Here’s a link to the trailer for the film, which sees a guy named Bruno pull out all the stops to get a girl he’s sweet on named Caroline to an outdoor BSS concert in order to cement his connection with her on the eve of her departure for France to go to school.

Also on tonight, there’s gigs by the Nancy Ray Guns (a CD Release) with Intergalactic Virgin and Coelacanth Dance at the Exchange (doors at 8 p.m. $8). Next door at the Club, it’s Tara Dawn Solheim with Danny Nargang, Rye ‘n’ the Vats and the Co-Accused. At O’Hanlon’s Pub, there’s an EP release for Jeans Boots with a set by Carl of Library Voices. Finally, at Cathedral Village Freehouse Winnipeg singer-songwriter Jodi King is playing.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
