Like New Vintage | Secret Shop YYC
Today we have a special conversation with the minds behind Like New Vintage and Secret Shop YYC - Nick, Tam, and Jimmy. We spend a bit of time to explore who they are, where they came from, and how they are working together to stimulate and grow creative culture here in Calgary. Their series of fashion, music, performance shows have been gaining traction here on the ground floor in Calgary. They have vision, direction, and great perspective on what’s hip and cool collaborative programs - like their upcoming show with Velour Clothing Exchange and Pulse Dance Studios aptly named “Something from Nothing”. If you’re listening to this before Aug 30, get online and get tickets ASAP as it’s small and looks to be a killer fashion/dance show at cSpace King Edward.
Shout out to Kyle Marshall of Media Lab YYC for the studio space, production, and awesome positive vibes. If you’re ever looking to chat with something who REALLY LOVES podcasts, you need to sit down with Kyle. And to last episode’s guest A.Y.E. who has donated another track from his album Soul Food for this production. Calgary collaboration!
You can find all involved parties online through attached links - check the description, instagram, website, posts to find out more! And thank you for your time. Even listening is the start of the collaborative energy we need here in the city to keep the ball moving forward.
Perspectives YYC is a proud member of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB. The APN is the brainchild of Karen Unland who's only purpose in life, it seems, is to support and grow local podcasts. Podcasts like I Don’t Get It - a theatre and show review podcast based out of Edmonton by two writers Fawnda Mithrush and Paul Blinov, produced by Andrew Paul. Their detailed insight and synergy together as cohosts shines a great light into Edmonton from November 2013! They really have been around. In a good way. They can be found at idontgetityeg.com and through the APN website: albertapodcastnetwork.com
A quick note from our main sponsor ATB. In light of our approaching Calgary Pride month, I wanted to highlight that ATB takes pride in all Albertans. That means standing up for what is right in the workplace, in our communities and alongside community partners, including fYrefly in Schools, Calgary Library's Reading with Royalty program, Edmonton and Calgary Pride, and the Calgary Sexual Health Centre. At ATB, we believe Pride is a stance. A stance for love, diversity, and self-worth. A stance for acceptance, in our workplace, in the communities we serve, and with our community partners.
