Let's get wild
Victoria's favourite Compassion Gorilla jams out hot world beat with a folkadelic flavour.
Rosie Bitts is a burlesque diva, chanteuse, impresario, keynote speaker, teacher, sex in heels and writer of a multiple award-winning one woman play, “The Fabulous Miss Rosie Bitts” and erotica serial “The Lady Corsairs”.

Plus live rocking funk performed by local sweethearts Compassion Gorilla and 99 Buck.
The UNTAMED CABARET is this year's blowout benefit for Vancouver Island Community Forest Action Network, the feisty South Islanders who win more environmental battles than most full-size eco-groups.
In 2012 and 2013, VIC FAN sponsored the Caravan to Unis'tot'en Camp to help block tar sands and fracking pipelines. Surveying and clearing on the pipeline route has been delayed for a year. In 2011 we defeated a massive (and illegal) vacation-home subdivision near China Beach. From 2007 to 2010, we fought to stop Bear Mountain developer Len Barrie before he destroyed indigenous heritage sites and bankrupted his resort investors. Every year, we hold workshops for new and experienced activists to share skills.
VIC FAN is 100% volunteer, autonomous, anti-racist, feminist and fierce. All of the proceeds raised go directly to our projects. Want more? Call Zoe at 250-813-3569 or email ac.tsaocdliw|eoz#ac.tsaocdliw|eoz.
