What to do in Saskatoon: The Beaches, Nick Faye and the Deputies, Drinks for dogs April 23 - 30, 2018

Now that it’s nice out again, it’s time to pluck those bicycles out from storage – and maybe hit up some of Saskatoon’s venues while you’re at it?

The Beaches / Taylor Knox / League of Wolves

Having recently picked up a Juno Award for Breakthrough Group of the Year, The Beaches are a welcome respite from gloomy weather and gloomy bands. Fusing together upbeat energy with sunshine guitar pop riffs, the group’s arrival in Saskatoon is equally as exciting as the melting of winter.

Nick Faye and The Deputies w/ Young James

New album alert! Hailing from Regina, Nick Faye and The Deputies have dropped a new album “of late-90’s inspired pop-rock drenched in Canadiana” that takes equal parts smart, spiky and smooth and blends them together with the end result being a joyous prairies party romp.

Drinks for the dogs at HighKey Brewery

You like drinks? You like dogs? This one was is probably a bit of a no-brainer then. New brewery on the block High Key is donating a portion of each pint sold to New Hope Dog Rescue – come quaff for a canine!

Mending Meet Up

The Library of Things is holding a super cool event for anyone looking to get a little mending done with a borrowed sewing machine. And not only does it promote DIY-solutions in a community-minded setting, the whole thing is free.

Bicycle Tune Up Workshop

Speaking of bikes, the Bridge City Bicycle Co-op is holding a workshop that will teach you how to assess, identify, and fix issues on your bike. There are limited spaces available, but it’s probably a good idea to get familiar with this group’s going-ons now.
