TUBBY DOC | Friday September 2nd

Doors at 8:00 pm, film at 11:00 pm

Calgary’s Tubby Dog is a special place. Aside from its top-notch food and charmingly kitschy atmosphere, the restaurant has become a central location for so much of what makes Calgary unique. From hosting DIY punk and indie rock shows through developing itself as a somewhat unfortunate hotbed for drunken oil company employees to get a post-bar meal, the restaurant and hangout spot is a point of interest at all hours. Local filmmaker Sara Hughes already loved hanging out at Tubby Dog on a regular basis before realizing it was an experience she wanted to share with the rest of the world. As such, she started filming all the drama, insanity and fun she could in 2009, and now we’re left with Tubby Doc.

Tubby Doc will screen on September 2 at the Uptown Stage and Screen. The evening kicks off with performances from Grown-Ups, the Gooeys and Wasted Wealth at the Marquee Room, with a screening to follow at 11pm. A DVD release of the film is planned for autumn of 2011.

Bands and Poster Contest start at 8pm and go to 10:30pm in the Marquee Room. Tubby Doc Screening starts at 11pm sharp in the Uptown Theatre (down the hall from The Marquee Room, in case you didn't know)
