Show Notes

It seems strange that singer-songwriter [Joe Curtis](http://www.joecurtisband.com/) hasn't formally been on the podcast until now. I interviewed him for an [episode of 'Mom's House'](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_ONZ5PILn8), plus he performed an acoustic set at a recent show in my backyard, but this marks his first sit-down Witchpolice interview. We talk about his long career as a sideman, his inspirations as a solo artist, some of the new music he's working on, and much more. Joe is a fantastic local talent and a guy with a lot to say, so make sure you check this one out. Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far. Thanks to supporters like you, we can keep churning out interviews twice a week! If you like the show, please head down to [patreon.com/witchpolice](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice), and for as little as $1 a month (less than 12 cents an episode), you can help keep the lights on!

WR655: Greg Hanec

Space)doxa at the Graffiti Gallery has been Winnipeg’s source for outsider musical performances for years. I talked to its curator, Greg Hanec, about some of the upcoming events — acoustic, electronic and otherwise — coming up at the Higgins Ave. venue over the next few months.Sprinkled throughout are musical selections by space)doxa participants (chosen by Greg) including The Inflatable Band, French Class, Patrick Michalishyn, and Philia.Note: Because we're in the middle of a pandemic and changes to restrictions are happening fluidly, at least one of the events Greg discusses on the episode (the first one) has already been cancelled. Here's hoping the rest of them go smoothly! This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company and by Gruf and Yy's new 'Mental Health Day' album on Saskatoon Folk Rap Records.Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on Patreon!
