Hello, I am a member of the Invisible Coffee Drinkers, been to three 
meets so far - and Brian, I hope it is okay to use this opportunity to 
promote a fairly new MeetUp in Vancouver. There is no conflict of 
interest with the Coffee Drinkers :-)

The "Rock 'n Roll Documentary Night and Salon" group meets every second 
Friday, at a private house in Vancouver. We have a really good digital 
projector and large screen, and great speakers. So far we have been 
starting each event with an hour-long episode on the History of Rock, 
from the famous Time-Life series. Both rock afficionados and neophytes 
really seem to like this, the series is highly rated and its mix of live 
clips and interviews, and historic footage, is extremely engaging.

The "second half" if you will is usually a movie of a live concert. The 
first event featured The Last Waltz, the swansong of The Band, the 
second was a classic from 1964 Los Angeles showing very early Rolling 
Stones, Beach Boys and lots of Chuck Berry and James Brown. For the most 
recent event we had Pink Floyd's "Live at Pompeii."

The atmosphere is highly relaxed, you can bring drinks if you like, walk 
around and chat or stay glued to the screen. The venue is very easy to 
reach by SkyTrain, being just six minutes walk from Joyce-Collingwood 
station. My co-host and I do our best to encourage some kind of 
conversation about what we are watching, some exploration of its "deep 
cultural and social anthropology" to be pretentious about it for a 
minute, so it is a lot more more that just sitting around watching pop 
music videos.

You are most welcome to join us, but please first join as a member of 
the page and let us know whether or not you are coming, as space is 
fairly limited and we cannot accommodate vast hordes. Okay, suave and 
deboner, and rock on! Email me for directions and more info at -
