This year, NXNE will be host to the world premiere of the new film Ages and Stages: The Story Of The Meligrove Band. Sticky has an exclusive interview with Brendan McCarney, the director of the movie, along with the members of The Meligrove Band.

Ages and Stages takes a raw but heartening look at the frustrations of The Meligrove Band, one of the best but most overlooked bands in Canada. Follow the band 's three core members, who have been together for fifteen years despite weathering all kinds of colossal bad luck, legal wrangling, being in the "wrong place at the wrong time" and the ever present feeling that it might just be time to hang it up.

The film will premiere at the National Film Board on Wednesday, June 13 @ 4:30 PM.

The showing will be followed by celebration from 6pm - 10pm at 586 Richmond St. West (at Portland) with performances by: Dinosaur Bones, Magneta Lane, Two Koreas, and Fabulous Yawn. Expect to see a few more musicians in the crowd.
