December 4th was a bitter cold evening in Calgary, but the House Coffee Sanctuary in Kensington was a warm, crowded sanctuary of creativity and talent. The friendly staff were busy keeping up with the bustling turnout for the launch party of Earth Pulse Magazine, the brainchild of a few young forward thinking students in Calgary dedicated to ‘connecting artists and creating a vibrant arts culture’. Performances ranged from singers to harmonica/guitar duos to very unique and charmingly recited ‘black comedy haiku’s‘. Check out the magazine for a generous collection of diversely talented writers and artists. Some of the musical performances at the launch party included Calgarians Danger Floyd and Matt Blais, as well as a number of other talented musicians.
