We are thrilled to announce our first ever concert event! Join us on the evening of Pride Sunday, August 2, for an exciting evening featuring internationally celebrated Canadian vocalist, Simone Denny!
Denny is best known as the voice behind the iconic '90s group, Love Inc. Their first album went platinum due to the success of several hits including "Broken Bones", which climbed to the Top 10 on the Canadian pop charts, reached #1 on the dance charts, and won a Juno and two MuchMusic Awards. "You’re A Superstar", became a #1 dance song domestically and overseas. Both hits also reached the Top 10 in the UK. The techno-pop single "Here Comes the Sunshine" soared on the Canadian dance charts, reached #3 in digital sales, and also received a Juno and a MuchMusic Award. In 2004, Denny recorded the theme for the TV show, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, "All Things (Just Keep Getting Better)". It reached #5 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play listing and #7 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay chart, and earned Denny yet another Juno Award.
The venue is twelvewest nightclub at 1219 Granville, just a few steps from Davie Street. Your $30 ticket includes VIP entry to twelvewest for the evening, a complimentary cocktail, and a chance to win great prizes. For those wishing to step it up a little, Belvedere Vodka VIP Lounge access is available for $99 and includes VIP entry to twelvewest, plus access to a dedicated private bar with complimentary cocktails until midnight, an exclusive area that offers prime views of the stage, and Belvedere swag. As with all of our events, proceeds benefit the anti-bullying and safer school programs of Out in Schools.

On behalf of Out in Schools, we would like to thank you for your support. Thank you to everyone who attended any of our sold out events to date! Together, we raised tens of thousands of dollars for Out in Schools, money that directly enables Out in Schools facilitators to reach students all over BC. On top of this, our corporate sponsors and community partners have given many tens of thousands more to Out in Schools at Friends & Company events throughout the year. All of this is undeniable proof that together, we can make a difference for young LGBTQ people in our communities. Thank you.
On a serious note: Friends & Company, Out in Schools and our sponsors remind you to please drink responsibly and plan a safe ride home. Please don't drink and drive. 19+ event. ID Required. Thank you.
