Sex, Drugs, Rock and Roll, Nevermind Rave

June 25, 2003

By Catherine Barr


The opening night of Vancouver Museum's "Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n Roll" was held on Jun 25 with a themed evening full of surprises. Three very distinct exhibits: "Unmentionables", a sexy underwear exhbit (runs until Dec.), "OPIUM - the Heavenly Demon" (runs until Mar.) and the "50s Gallery" have been combined to show people that everything old really is new again.

Meantime, later that night, Kitsilano's Nevermind restaurant held its 5th Annual Summer Solstace Wine Rave. A surprisingly chilly reception at the door was fortunately not indicative of the hot tunes and good wines found inside. Ravers take note, summer has arrived.
