The West End Cultural Centre, Real Love Winnipeg and our partners across 5 other prairie cities are disappointed to announce that due to the ongoing surge of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 across the country, Winterruption WPG 2022 will have to be postponed. The event was supposed to take place January 25-30, 2022 in venues around Winnipeg, however it is incumbent on us to prioritize the safety of performers, attendees, staff, and volunteers. Therefore, new dates will be announced as soon as they are finalized.
Anyone who has purchased tickets for Winterruption shows is welcome to keep them and they will be honoured at the rescheduled dates. If they would prefer a refund on their tickets, they should be in contact with the point of purchase and their request will be processed without question. If a show is unable to be rescheduled, all tickets to the show will be refunded.
TEKE::TEKE is a Montreal-based Japanese psych-rock group composed of guitarists Serge Nakauchi Pelletier & Hidetaka Yoneyama, bass player Mishka Stein, drummer Ian Lettre, flutist Yuki Isami, trombone player Etienne Lebel, and visual artist and vocalist Maya Kuroki.
Featuring traditional Japanese instruments, flute and trombone alongside raging guitars and a pulsing rhythm section, TEKE::TEKE creates a sound reminiscent of 1960’s and 70’s era psychedelic Japanese soundtracks, with a frenetic, modern twist.
