SABIAN Cymbals steps in to cover patron admission for Awesome, I Shot That!, the final concert in The Capital Project documentary series.
Posted by The Capital Project on Sunday, October 29, 2017
This Thursday’s enormous concert event planned as both the opening gala for this year’s Silver Wave Film Festival and the closing shoot for Raynemaker Productions’ documentary series The Capital Project is now being presented free of charge thanks to the fine folks at Sabian Cymbals.
“The Capital Project is an important documentary that explores and celebrates the musical landscape right here in our own backyard,” said Sabian President Andy Zildjian. “Making it possible for the New Brunswick community to attend is our way of contributing to the crucial role that local music plays in our local culture, and enriching the lives of our young musicians and fans.”
The evening performance will feature many of the region’s most celebrated acts including The Hypochondriacs, Kill Chicago, Little You Little Me, Motherhood, Janowskii, Some Dads, The Crossroad Devils, Weak Size Fish, The Waking Night, FIRST WORDS, Monark, Levi Rowan, Ceeb Dread and NFP, blending live performances with excerpts from the many interviews compiled for the project.
“The Capital Project is really capturing a moment in time in the New Brunswick music scene,” said project director Tim Rayne. “Because the concert will become the end of the film, it’s crucial to have a great turnout, making this generous support from SABIAN so important to us as filmmakers.”

The Capital Project is a documentary web series on the New Brunswick music scene that has been in production over the last year. The project will be released as both a documentary film and web series featuring over 100 New Brunswick band performances and 200 interviews with bands, solo musicians, music educators, theatre performers, festival organizers, venue owners and music promoters.
“Since the event is now free, we will be offering refunds to those who may have already purchased tickets,” said Arthur Thomson, the film’s producer. “However, any funds raised above the cost of the event will go toward post production on the project. Audiences are welcome to pay-as –you-will at the event if they wish to support the project.”
SABIAN Cymbals joins other major sponsors including The City of Fredericton, Downtown Fredericton Inc., and Fredericton Regional Solid Waste. Other supporters include The Snooty Fox, Backstreet Records, Second Spin, Bellwether, Unplugged Cafe, Jack Jardine Realty Inc. and River Valley Shoes. Milda’s Pizza food truck will be present at the November 2 event, along with Graystone Brewing.
The event is licensed and therefore restricted to patrons 19+.
Production of The Capital Project has been made possible with support from Telefilm Canada’s Microbudget Project Program as well as the New Brunswick Film, Television and Multimedia Industry Support Program.
