  • Royal Mark

    February 16th, 2010 by Lyndsey. Tagged in , , , , , February 2010, Film

    Jack of many trades, Mark Pesci briefly talks about his role at the one and only Royal Cinema.

    Aside from working at the Royal Cinema and promoting screenings like The Room, Mark is a show promoter organizing some of the most talked about shows in the city.  His shows range from anywhere such as the 80′s hardcore band, the Cro-Mags, to Montreal’s BBQ aka MARK SULTAN. Not to mention, lots of local acts like the Brutal Knights (remember frontman Nick Flanagin’s past interview).

    This week I talked to Priya, who sings for the Toronto based hard rock band Diemonds, we met up at Dark Horse Coffee.

    In December, Diemonds went to India and played the rock capital of India, Shiloong, making them only the 4th band that has ever played there. They share this elite honour with such bands as Scorpions and Mr. Big. Priya also discusses her and her band’s surprise as they learned about certain regions of India and the diverse roles and importance of women within these communities.

    Check out the video that briefly talks about Diemonds’ trip to India.

    Be sure to listen to Diemonds on their MySpace, join their Facebook group, follow on Twitter and watch their YouTube channel.

    A little while ago I had the chance to interview Mark Rendall who stars in Sook-Yin Lee’s lastest film Year of the Carnivore.  Mark was nice enough to offer cooking his favourite dish, stir fry with ponzu sauce.

    In the past, Mark has worked with Don McKellar, watch the video to find out more and to see his interesting mechanical toy collection.
