The Saskatchewan Jazz Festival has entered the second week of dominating Saskatoon’s music scene. And, as per usual, there are a tonne of non-Sask Jazz events filling in the usual spaces outside of the Bessborough Gardens. While there are plenty of you that are planning on loafing to Feist, Arrested Development and all the free music you can handle, don’t forget to catch some of the smaller shows as well. This week, some of our personal favourites include PONY at Vangelis and Busdriver at Amigos on Tuesday, Power Buddies at Vangelis on Tuesday, and SIANspheric bringing the noise, again to Vangelis on the Monday after the long weekend. Also, if you feel like celebrating or something on Canada Day, The Classy Chassys have you covered at the Capitol.
