12657796_1007418105971160_8664689844331624775_o

This Sunday! David Liebe Hart hits the RWPH stage with Iron Pizza, Scrimshaw, 36I and Father Freedom.

Known for his roles on Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, and extensive tours throughout the US, Canada and Australia, David Liebe Hart is an outsider musician, actor and painter. A true original, he has communicated with extra-terrestrials, owns a large collection of puppets, and is obsessed with trains. While his vast and bizarre catalog of songs about aliens, religion, and failed relationships has yielded cult hits, such as “Salame”, “Father & Son” and “Puberty”, his recent collaborations with electronic musician Jonah Mociun, AKA Th’ Mole, have propelled Liebe Hart into previously unexplored territory.

Throughout the past decade Liebe Hart has garnered a substantial and die-hard fan base, not only from his TV and film appearances but from his stints on the road performing music all across the US, UK, Ireland and Australia. His followers are extremely supportive and loyal, won over by David’s obvious goodheartedness, honesty and hilarious idiosyncrasies, as well his fun and engaging stage shows.

With Jonah Mociun as backing musician, Liebe Hart puts on a show certain to please old fans and new ones alike. In addition to creating electronicised versions of David’s old favorites, the duo performs their new songs along with puppets, projected video accompaniment, and David’s oddly endearing stories of past relationships and paranormal encounters.

2016 Annual General Meeting (AGM) This Sunday at 5pm!

We’re about to have our sixth Annual General Meeting (AGM)! It’s coming up quickly: May 15th, 2015 from 5-8pm at the Public House. This is the time every year when we reflect on how the Public House is measuring up to its threefold mission: to be a community gathering place; to serve local, organic, and tasty drinks, and to help build the cooperative movement in our neighborhood alongside the Riverwest Cooperative Alliance.photo (10)

At the last couple of AGMs, we’ve encouraged your participation and voice by putting upgreat big sheets of paper on the walls, giving you some nice-smelling Sharpie markers, and letting you go to town. This year will be no different. The “writing on the wall” gets reviewed by the board in the months following the AGM and the Board takes these messages into account. It’s a great way to give feedback to the Public House as a valued member-owner. Although we’re always here to listen if you’ve got a compliment, comment or concern.

Most importantly, this date marks the time each year when our members get to elect new members to the Board of Directors. The board of directors is the 9-person body that helps guide the course of the bar through long-term visioning, financial oversight, and governance. This year we have 4 vacancies! That could represent a big change of leadership and a lot of new opportunities and visioning for the bar.

Candidate applications are posted! Click here and scroll down.

Interested in running for our Board of Directors? (Application deadline May 7!)

We’d love to have you! The board of directors is responsible for the financial health of the bar and the long term vision of the establishment. We have 4 open board seats this year, which means a lot can change. In terms of time commitment, it’s about 3-5 hours per month of meetings, plus emails and side tasks. Each board member chairs a committee as well. A standard board term is three years. To apply, fill out the form on this page: https://riverwestpublichouse.wordpress.com/annual-general-meeting/
