We help run CaRaVaN OPEN MIC + OPEN STAGE, a long-running “anything goes” open mic that takes place every Monday night at 7:00 PM.

CaRaVaN continues offering up a weekly open mic – most weeks live at X-Cues Café & Lounge and occasionally on Instagram Live (which our schedule will try to keep up to date). Music, poetry, comedy, dance: anything goes! CaRaVaN has been running for over 10 years and brings opportunities to all levels of performers. We’re also very excited to be returning to the Cube at Old Market Square in the summer after 2 years of COVID closures.

You’ll also find Purple Room-presented events and stages throughout the city, including at Assiniboia Downs for the long-running MANITOBA NIGHT MARKET & FESTIVAL, the brand new MB FOOD TRUCK BATTLES, and a special CANADA DAY music event. We also present our SONIC SPOTLIGHT series showcasing local (and sometimes touring) musical acts on our outdoor and indoor stages.


Pants on Fire: A Comedy Game Show

We also co-produce PANTS ON FIRE, a comedy game show pitting teams of comedians against each other in a battle of truth and deception. It’s on a pandemic-induced hiatus right now, but will be back in the future!
