Grady in Lethbridge

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

Grady played in Lethbridge a few weeks ago at Average Joe’s, and it was a fantastic show – it was definitely worth braving the freezing weather for it. They haven’t played in Lethbridge in quite some time, plus Gordie Johnson’s former band Big Sugar were the second band I ever saw in a bar, so I was super excited for this show since I found out about it. The performance was fantastic, and Johnson’s guitar chops never fail to blow my mind. (more…)

Lethbridge Zombie Walk 2010

Monday, October 25th, 2010

This year’s zombie walk in Lethbridge was a huge success! We had a fantastic turnout, decent weather, and super creative costumes as always. The walk took around two hours this year, and we only lost a few of the undead along the way. While some living citizens pretended they didn’t see us, a few played along by parking near us and screaming in their cars, and a few local business employees could be seen mouthing, “OH MY GOD,” through the window as we walked by.

Cassandra did my makeup again; thanks, Cassandra!! (more…)

Wax Mannequin plays Lethbridge

Monday, September 6th, 2010

Early in August, Wax Mannequin played Lethbridge’s Slice Bar and Grill, and was a treat as always! I saw him earlier that weekend in Calgary, but his Lethbridge show was by far the better of the two. We really love him here, and you can tell how much he feels that in his performance. (more…)

Maria in the Shower

Saturday, August 7th, 2010

I hadn’t heard of Maria in the Shower until catching them open for Lily Fawn at the Slice a few weeks ago, but they impressed me in a huge way and were luckily playing their own show at Slice again the week after! Their music is a fun ecclectic blend of all kinds of delightful things and fantastic for dancing to. Not only is their music amazing, but they are top notch performers, never letting their energy wane for a moment; I’m sure the pictures speak volumes of that.

Check out their MySpace page! (more…)

Big John Bates back in Lethbridge

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

It’s been a while since they were last here, so Lethbridge was stoked Big John Bates and the Voodoo Dollz had finally returned to the city for one of their awesome rockabilly/burlesque shows. This was their first time playing at Henotic (which is unfortunately ending operations in two weeks), and it was a fantastic venue for this show. As usual I enjoyed every moment of their performance, and wish they could have played for several more hours!

Disclaimer: Some of these photos come pretty close to being topless (but in true burlesque style, the girls are wearing pasties!), so if side-boob offends you or if you are at work you better not click through the rest ;) (more…)

The next big Bellydance show in Lethbridge!

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

It’s that time of year again!

Ammena Dance Company is once again putting on An Explosion of World Dance and Music (2010 edition!), held at the Yates Memorial Centre in Lethbridge on Saturday March 6. Lethbridge is really a hot bed for multi-cultural events, and this year our show is no exception. In addition to multiple Bellydance pieces, we will also feature Bollywood, Merengue, Ukrainian, Hungarian, and Bhangra (which has been co-choreographed by a legitmate Punjabi Bhangra dancer!), as well as musical performances by local musicians.

Tickets aren’t on sale quite yet, but will be soon at the Yates Ticket Centre.

I did the poster design, and the photo is once again by Jan Tajcnar, who photographed our big show last year!

I’m allowed to do shameless self-promotion for my hobbies on my blog! :)

Please note: Due to my heavy involvement in this show, I will be taking very limited sessions between now and March 15th. If you would like to book a session in that time, please contact me at info @ tanyaplonka.com for availability, or I can schedule you in for March. I am still able to meet up for any wedding consults during this time, so don’t hesitate to ask if you would like to find out more about wedding packages for 2010!
