I wasn’t sure what to expect as I cruised up Fairfax on the way to the Silent Movie Theater. Having never watched Dawson’s Creek, I was only slightly familiar with Chantal Kreviazuk’s music and, naturally, had never seen her live. What’s more—why was Perez Hilton hosting the whole shebang in the first place? And why was it at a movie theater? And, perhaps most importantly, would there be free booze? Thankfully, all of my fears and suspicions were soon allayed.

There was free booze! And even food! Amid a quickly growing crowd, I tipped back a Corona and nibbled at some cheese cubes and perfectly dry, jerky-like chicken skewers (so thin and salty! I love event catering!) Soon enough, everyone was ushered into the theater and the show began. The Gossip Gangster came up first and gave a slightly rambling introduction that involved his being a little drunk and Avril Lavigne being a “fucking douche”. After that, Chantal took the stage in a Pucci dress and knee-high leather boots. The vocal Winnipeg contingent in the audience went wild.
