Sad magazine celebrates first year witha smile

Sad Mag marks its first anniversary and the launch of its 5th issue with a party at the Cultch on October 9. The local arts and culture quarterly will be celebrating  and raising money. According to a post on Vancouver Observer, those who attend will hear live, on-stage interviews featuring young Vancouver innovators Graeme Berglund (Founder, The Cheaper Show), Cameron Reed (Director, Music Waste), Lizzy Karp (Director, Rain City Chronicles), and Dave Deveau (Director, Zee Zee Theatre).
Sad Mag is proud to be celebrating its first year anniversary, particularly after a tumultuous year for publishing and the arts in BC,” says Deanne Beattie, editor and co-founder.The Sad Mag Live event gives us an opportunity to reflect on what the Vancouver arts community has experienced in the last year, and to ask ‘what’s next?’”.
The event, hosted by CBC Radio 3 host Lana Gay, also features live performances from singer-songwriter Jasper Sloane Yip, slam poet and singer Barbara Adler, new media artist Sammy Chien, and the ever-sassy drag performer Isolde N. Barron.

Tickets are $18, and can be purchased from The Cultch, online at or at the box office. Admission includes a copy of issue 5 which features local artists' visions of Vancouver, inspired by native son Douglas Coupland. Hence, "the City of Doug" coverline. Ticket proceeds go directly to Sad Mag Writers & Artists Fund, which sustains the magazine’s content.

Sharp magazine? Sad magazine? If a character in your novel was a hip young editor at Sharp or Sad, you'd be slammed for lacking verisimilitude.
That said, good luck to both. (Talk about pulling your punches, eh?)
