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!

We didn't forget about this one! Our interview with 3/4 of skate-punk revivalists Stickaround was actually recorded back in February, but kept getting bumped due to more time-sensitive episodes jumping the queue. Here it is, finally, in all its glory: an episode chock-full of punk rock, Winnipeg nostalgia, and way too much smoking indoors! ...
I had the chance to interview relentlessly positive singer-songwriter [Sophie Stevens](http://www.facebook.com/spidersluggos/) earlier this year. It was during an [episode of Mom's House I hosted](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7At5bMBWZM&t=756s), where she was backing up Micah Erenberg on guitar and vocals. Unfortunately, at the time I didn't know anything about her own music, so I felt it was important we reconnect and do an exclusive Sophie episode (Sophiesclusive?) of the podcast. We hung out at a Robin's Donuts (of course) and talked about her work with Micah, developing her own sound and stepping into the scene as a solo artist, her weekly [YouTube performances](http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfhYm5AAvyRN-hyzATiMftA) (an uplifting experience unto itself) and much, much more.
