Sit Down Sessions: Holiday Edition: Progressive House & Live Painting

December 18, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Get ready for the next edition of Sit Down Sessions.
That’s right, we’re back and ready to celebrate the holidays in a socially responsible way. Join us on Friday December 18th at LIVE! on Elgin to ring in the season and enjoy great tunes as our DJs spin some of the best progressive and deep house on offer. We will be getting things going early so head over right after work. Digital VJ Emmet Stowe will be on hand to provide the perfect landscape. Djs will be Alain M. from Ottawa Prog Vibes alongside Pithra and Nikoli from the Music.Art.Ppl Collective.
In addition, there will be a live painter (check the event Facebook page for when we reveal the name of the artist!) producing a painting on canvas onstage as the music plays. The piece will be on a live online auction during the event.
We can’t dance yet but we can certainly enjoy an evening of good music and art in the company of people we care about!
Here is how it works:
We are selling by the table, which each seats 4 people. So grab your table, bring your bubble, and book in for the best holiday event around. But hurry…tables are limited and they will be going up in price closer to the event. Grab yours now and join us for a Sit Down Session to remember.

Alain M.:
Over his 25+ years as a DJ, Alain has cultivated a signature melodic, danceable, and thoughtful style with enough surprises to keep even the most devout listeners on their toes. Inspired by prog rock, early Dutch techno, 1990’s trance and New York house, his tastes have evolved towards progressive house, with a particular fondness for Argentinian productions. His weekly podcast Ottawa Prog Vibes is a mainstay on Mixcloud’s Canadian Top 100 electronica shows and often charts in the top 20 nationwide. He has been featured on radio shows globally from the UK to Spain, Argentina, Peru and the US.
Emmett Stowe
Emmett Stowe was first introduced to computer generated imagery while working for a production company in Australia setting up visuals for festivals. It was there that he produced his first projection mapping installation. Since coming back to Ottawa he has worked with local event organizers, dancers, and DJs. Emmett’s style centers on three dimensional prismatic screens built to give video graphics a heightened sense of depth and texture.
