Au Bistro des découvertes !

Not all great talents are great stars. Discovering them, despite their relative obscurity, is a keenly felt pleasure. We gain an appreciation for our environment, capable of offering such beautiful presences. We share the thrill of a brand-new performance. We experience a moment of beautiful guidance that wants to do good, just by forging a link.

It’s in this spirit that La Slague invites you to “Au bistro des découvertes“. This intimate concert series is carefully curated, with new talent personally recommended by seasoned French Ontario artists. Our old hands on the music scene are well placed to make good musical acquaintances, and like us, the stars love to share their finds with their friends. So be one of their friends!

Au Bistro des Découvertes, you’ll come for the good atmosphere, the good food, the good music, the good company, all under the guidance of the evening’s artist godparents, to create an intimate and convivial evening with their protégés.

An initiative of La Slague, under the artistic direction of Dan Bédard.

October 3 – Dayv Poulin presents…
In his heartfelt rock and pop vein, he has a gift for catchy melodies, driving rhythms and engaging arrangements. His music shines with the colors of an optimistic and generous spirit that knows how to sing the reasons and the seasons of the heart’s life.

Xavier Boucher
Hailing from North Bay, Xavier Boucher is an 18-year-old francophone artist. For him, music holds no secrets: singing has always been part of his life, and he began strumming his first guitars at the age of 7.
Despite his young age, Xavier has taken part in several school shows, winning the Coup de Coeur prize at the Quand ça nous chante Festival, and made his professional debut as the opening act for Dayv Poulin.
He draws on his great love of nature and his interest in philosophy to create his songs. His folk, acoustic and indie style is influenced by artists such as Tim Baker, Coldplay, The Beatles and Quote the Raven.

La Slague continues with the solidarity ticket system!

For the 2021-2022 season, Carrefour francophone and La Slague are letting you decide how much to pay to attend our shows or purchase our artistic products.

Why are we doing this?

  • Because rich and rewarding cultural experiences should be available to everyone.
  • Because all of Sudbury’s Francophones and Francophiles should be welcome in a supportive and vibrant community.
  • Because belonging to a culture and the quality of life fostered by the arts are human rights.

How do I determine my ticket price?

Following a number of comments and suggestions, we decided to redefine our solidarity ticketing categories to make them more inclusive and more representative of the public who attend our events.

We now opt for a “pay what you can” approach, so that our spectators feel comfortable choosing the rate that suits their current situation. What’s more, the Welcome Ticket gives new spectators the opportunity to discover our activities without judgement or compromise.

Here are the new categories !

Easy Peasy Ticket : A ticket to make your life easier. An ordinary, simple and easy ticket option. You want to pay the show’s worth? Then, congratulations! You’ve chosen the easiest option… with no snags or complications!

Good Scout Ticket : A ticket to help us out when things are going your way. You love cultural events and you want to lend us a helping hand? The Good Scout Ticket is what you’re looking for! So give yourself a good pat on the back, you’ve paid the show’s worth…and more!

No Stress Ticket : A ticket so you can enjoy the show without worrying too much about the price. Are you a student or a senior? Do you have a lot of unexpected expenses this month? You’re always showing up at cultural events but it’s starting to hurt your wallet? No stress, we got you! We want you to enjoy the show… and get a drink if you want to!

Welcome Ticket : A ticket for your first cultural experience. We promise you a good time. So your first show is on us. You know someone who’s curious about la Slague and you want them to join in and enjoy the show? Offer them a Welcome Ticket, and they’ll have fun, that’s for sure!

We would like to thank the Théâtre Cercle Molière in Winnipeg, which inspired this new payment scale!

La Slague is a member of the Coalition for Fair Ticketing, which brings together cultural organizations wishing to jointly reflect on best accessibility ticketing practices and thus promote access to art and culture.

La Slague's Evolution

La Slague was established in 1964 by the Centre des jeunes de Sudbury. After many years of success, La Slague went dormant, and then reappeared for a time in the mid-1980s as a community-based volunteer organization. With La Slague’s renaissance in 2006 as part of the Carrefour francophone, a third generation of concert promotion activities was afoot.
