About the event

Agent provocateur singer/songwriter Carole Pope is the co-founder of the band Rough Trade. Their signature electronic rock sound, rooted in influences as varied as Punk, Glam, Brel and Brill, coupled with lyrics and a stage show that pushed the boundaries of sexuality, sexual politics, and the status quo, was designed to make you think and dance at the same time. It was a formula that clearly enshrined the band into the consciousness and playlists of fans the world over. 

Pope is a 3-time Juno (Female Vocalist), 3-time CASBY, Genie Award-winning, Canada’s Walk of Fame, songwriters Hall of Fame, Indie Hall of Fame, and 4X Gold, Platinum, and Polaris Prize Nominee. Pope’s lyric’s and live performance was a clarion call to arms for a revolution that helped to pave the way for future Canadian female artists  including Peaches, Tegan & Sara and k.d. Lang, while becoming a worldwide cult influence on artists from Madonna to Lady Gaga to David Bowie, the latter inviting Rough Trade, in 1983, to open the Canadian leg of the iconic Serious Moonlight Tour playing to capacity crowds as large as 60,000.

She was a guest judge on Canada’s Drag Race. A documentary based on Pope’s life is currently in production (produced by Gay Agenda and CBC.)
