X-Cues' Winter Market Submissions

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 at X-Cues - Mondays at 7 PM

From mid-September through early May, CaRaVaN takes place at X-Cues Café & Lounge at 551 Sargent Avenue! Sign up is at 6:30 every week. For more information on CaRaVaN, visit the Facebook group.

Pants on Fire: A Comedy Game Show

We co-produce PANTS ON FIRE, a comedy game show pitting teams of comedians against each other in a battle of truth and deception. It takes place monthly at X-Cues Café & Lounge.

You’ll also find Purple Room-presented events and stages throughout the city, including at the MANITOBA NIGHT MARKET & FESTIVAL in June and August at Assiniboia Downs, the annual CAKE ‘N SHAKE at the end of May at Old Market Square, and our SONIC SPOTLIGHT series showcasing a trio of local (and sometimes touring) musical acts on both outdoor and indoor stages.


After 2 and a half years operating out of the back of Frame Arts Warehouse, the Purple Room shut its physical doors in August 2015. However, through the work of countless Winnipeg artists in music, spoken word, comedy, and more, we’ve been able to continue this unique Winnipeg institution as a roaming venue, regularly producing events and stages!
