Pretension takes a rest tonight when arts fuse at Bohemia Café, a venue run by a group of do-it-yourselfers that has taken it on itself to contribute to Edmonton’s arts community.

Tonight’s attraction is local and self-taught artist Joe Clarke, who will be painting canvasses live along to the electronic music of the No Ego DJs.

Within the past few months, Bohemia Café gained its food licence, adding a menu and locally brewed coffees and beers to complement its gallery and arts venue.

The show starts at 9 p.m. and is free, but not open to minors. For more, see
