The End.

February 10, 2009

All I can say is wow.

The 2009 PuSh Festival closed Sunday night with the performance of the Bang on a Can All-Stars at the Can Centre, and it was beautiful.

It’s been a whirlwind three weeks of performance, music and all around creativity.

Thanks to all our patrons, sponsors, donors, volunteers, friends and staff for making this an unforgettable festival!

See you next year for the 2010 Festival, and stay tuned to the blog and the website for updates and news throughout the year!

  1. I saw two things at this years’s Push:

    what I liked: the nyc band with 13 warhol screen tests at the vogue: mellow, short, sweet and just the right amount of hip. It had a modern museum quality appropriate to andy’s legacy.

    What I didn’t like:
    1. the near impossibility of buying tickets on the Push web site: I spent 27 minutes one day trying to find a link or phone number, ended up in the hell of ticketmaster’s voice menu. That said, the tm fee was lower than usual.

    2. the very long lineup for pickup and tickets at the vogue: only ONE agent for 100s of waiters-in-line: unprofessional conduct.

    3.the self-indulgence of marie brassard’s Invisible at the ubc theater: numbingly pretentious; gutwrenchingly too loud in the sonic “brown zone”, enough to cause soft organ damage even in a large theatre; and huge, truly dangerous strobe lights, which drove many from the performance (unless it was the performance.)

    Having admired Robert Lepage for a long time, I was expecting something much more refined and thoughtful.
