Marian Call – In concert – In conjunction with Happy Harbor Comics (10729 – 104 Avenue, Edmonton) we will be hosting a Marian Call concert on Monday, June 18, 2012 at 7:30 pm.
Alaskan singer-songwriter Marian Call is returning to Alberta. Her music has been described by fans as “funky acoustic joy jazz” — she plays eclectic, humorous and heartfelt songs that appeal to crowds of all ages and demographics. Her signature Underwood typewriter, rain stick, and kazoo can be heard in most of her local (and national) performances.
Marian is not being paid directly for her performance; we’re suggesting a donation of $10-$15 per person to show your appreciation of her talents.

As always, we’ll be hosting a costume contest as part of our event. Anything in the Whedonverse goes! Don’t have a Firefly costume ready? Consider coming as a character from Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible, Cabin in the Woods or the Avengers! Or be creative and design your own Browncoat Avenger outfit to share with the crowds.
For the non-cosplaying attendees 2012 marks the return of the Evil Laugh contest. Practice makes perfect so feel free to randomly wander around your town laughing hysterically. Or maybe not. There’s always the privacy of your own home to hone your mwaaa-haa-haa…
Does your workplace have a bulletin board where you can post messages? If so, we’ve got some great posters to share with you. Help us spread the word by putting up a CSTS poster in your office. We’ll have posters on hand to distribute at The Guild screening at Happy Harbor Comics on June 6th and at the Marian Call concert on June 18th.
Want to get a poster before the shindigs? Drop us an email and we’ll make arrangements to get the posters to you.
