Lethbridge in spotlight: Craig Ferguson on growing for Lethbridge

He's the host of CBS' The Late Late Show and he's literally coming to Lethbridge. Our little city is getting a mention, along with a few chuckles on air:


Just For Laughs is thrilled to announce that Scottish comedian and festival favorite Craig Ferguson will be hitting select Canadian cities this fall with his witty and hilarious stand up performance aptly titled Craig Ferguson Live! Don’t miss the star of The Late Late Show when he performs in Lethbridge at the Enmax Centre Theatre on Sunday, October 20 at 8PM.

Movember events around the city

Here's a round-up of the Movember events (that I've come across) happening in the city. Also, don't forget that there's still a few days left to enter my Movember Moustache Mitten contest, as well as a chance to win a pair of Gala Parté tickets.

Chinese “Takeout” comedy

My friend Tonia, who graduated with a masters of neuroscience at the U of L, is officially now a comedian. In Hong Kong. I like the direction this is headed.


The Weasel comes to Lethbridge

I’m talking about Pauly Shore, of course. This Lethbian Lover just happened to win a couple of tickets to his show, courtesy of ClearlyLethbridge.com! The show is tonight at 8PM at Average Joe’s. I’m excited, and I’m not even shitting you.

Look, he even gives a shot out to Lethbridge, buuuuuddy:


Thanks to DJ Booda for the video link!

UPDATE: Wow, I really got my hopes up for nothing. What a wash out!

Wax Mannequin comes to Lethbridge

Chris Adeney, known to most as Wax Mannequin, is one of my favourite Canadian musicians (besides Leeroy Stagger and Bryan Adams).  Though I haven’t seen many bands lately, his shows make me suffer The Slice at least once a year. And that time is almost at hand, as he comes to Lethbridge on March 31 as part of his “Hear Some Evil” tour with The Burning Hell.

Wax Mannequin was born in the smoke and industry of Hamilton; a damaged, underdog town; a perfect breeding ground for strange, variant things. Incorporating folk, scrappy prog-metal and a tireless creative ethic, Wax infused his local influences with road-broken experience to forge something unsettlingly new.

Lethbridge Fashion Weekend is zesty

Oh joy! “Joie de Vivre,” Lethbridge Fashion Week’s spring theme, is set for this weekend at the Lethbridge Legion.

Also, Lethbian Love is not becoming a fashion blog. It’s just a time to celebrate old man winter releasing his stranglehold grip upon Southern Alberta! It’s kinda ironic though, since the Legion smells like old spice and scotch, not spring blossoms and pheromones.

Lethbridge Fashion Weekend returns

Lethbridge Fashion Weekend, where "cold gets cool," starts tomorrow evening with a hot & sexy fashion show, and continues the next day with an exclusive sale of original clothing and accessories.

The Lethbian Lover, who has an affinity for camel toe, will be taking in the show as per usual. It will be held at 7PM the Lethbridge Legion, so you may see me standing at attention.
