Despite a lack of any formal connection beyond, er, people-powered fun, the Creaking Planks have had intersections with all sorts of interesting bicycle-culture events here in town: Velofusion, Velopalooza, Bikesummer, Critical Mass, B:C:Clettes… even opening for a very strange screening of bicycle pornography, from which Wyoming Johnny may never quite recover. Icing this cake, this Friday (June 1st), a contingent of Creaking Planks will be acoustically giving ‘er down at the Olympic Village plaza (at Manitoba and Athletes Way or, otherwise put: by the statues of the giant birds) in celebration of another Bike To Work Week successfully pulled off by the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition. We’ll be holding forth between 5 and 6:30 pm! Consider rolling by along the False Creek seawall and saying hi!
Update: called on account of delivering a baby! We warned ‘em!
Also, a very happy birthday to Allan Macinnis, who had the Planks open for his birthday screening of Death Watch at the VanCity Theatre Sunday May 27th. Many happy returns!
