Heavy metal and aerial acts coming to ULLR Bar

Circus Acts Insomniacs September 7th; Masters of Justice September 20th

While the red licence plates are heading east and the Valley is quieting down, the folks at ULLR Bar are offering fall events to keep the fun in town.

“September is considered the shoulder season, and we wanted to do some new and interesting things for the locals to keep them excited and to give them something to do,” said Richard Matthews, who co-owns ULLR Bar.

Circus Acts Insomniacs will be playing with fire and doing acrobatics at the bar on Saturday, September 7th. Two weeks later, Masters of Justice will be performing a Metallica tribute. Tickets for either show are $10 and will be available at the door the nights of the events.

“We’re trying to make this affordable for people in our community… We’re just trying to throw an event and make it accessible to as many people as possible by making the tickets as cheap as we possibly can,” Mr. Matthews said. “We just hope people come out and support it because the more people come out and support these kinds of things and events that we do, the more opportunity we have to do things like this in the future.”

Circus Acts Insomniacs – September 7th

The Circus Acts Insomniacs will awe their audience with fantastical aerial moves. They’ll dangle from silk, twirl from a suspended hula hoop, gobble up some fire and do interpretive dances.

“They’re not juggling chainsaws. It’s very beautiful and rhythmic and it’s very classy and upstanding,” Mr. Matthews said. “I like the fact that it’s different and it’s unique and it’s stylish. We’re a viking bar in the middle of Invermere, so obviously we’re not afraid of things that are outside the norm or a little bit eccentric.”

The stage show will begin at 9 p.m. and will run for an hour and half to two hours. Later in the evening a DJ will take over the entertainment.

“We just wanted to bring something a little different to the community that’s kind of fun and exciting and can meet the wants and needs from a large spectrum of people. You could be a 20-year-old girl or a 70-year-old man and still come in and enjoy the show.”

Masters of Justice – September 20th

In another attempt to appeal to local tastes, ULLR Bar is hosting Masters of Justice, a tribute band to Metallica, after hearing an AC/DC tribute band called BC/DC rave about them.

“We got referred to these guys through BC/DC, and I know how much the community loves BC/DC,” Mr. Matthews said. “BC/DC was a huge show for us so people in Invermere obviously love rock and metal music so we thought we’d bring in a different flavour of it.”

Masters of Justice will play “all your favourite Metallica songs,” he said. The doors will open at 8 p.m. with the show at 9 p.m.

“There’s a huge spectrum of people that can enjoy this music,” he said. “Metallica has been around a long time, so there’s young people that love Metallica and people in their 50s and 60s that have been with Metallica from day one.”
