Following a successful spring season, Studio Bell After Hours is back with more to offer late night guests on Friday, September 22 from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm.

The fall season will kick-off with JUNO Award-winning three-piece Braids headlining in Studio Bell’s Performance Hall, while beat-makers Kloves (techno) and Miss Hazard (house and techno) spin selections on multiple levels.

Due to public demand, the fourth installment of the series will also include a later start time, giving attendees more time to dance and mingle after they’ve gotten warmed up.

“We learned a lot during the spring launch of After Hours and were blown away by the excitement and attendance for it. We also got some great feedback,” said Adam Fox, NMC’s Director of Programs. “People wanted to come later and dance the night away, so we’re shifting hours to run from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm. We also wanted to provide more programming for the night and we’ll be including some light snacks with your ticket.”

In addition to three separate live music spaces, NMC will also be programming a range of interactive activities for guests, including:

  • VR Game Room presented by the University of Calgary, featuring 3D Painting, photogrammetric renderings of real-world locations, and an interactive collaborative game where guests will race against the clock!
  • Interactive drum machine experience.
  • Studio Bell scavenger hunt, including an NMC prize pack for the winning participant!
  • Pop-up bars and bites.
