With the arrival of May comes patio weather, patios and all the things you can drink while sitting on a patio. Just don’t forget to hit some of your friendly neighbourhood venues while you’re out and about.
Get ready to dance to the off-kilter indie-pop rock of Juno-nominated darlings Weaves. A mishmash of infectious energy and rollicking guitar riffs, this band has made it their mission to leave you feeling jubilant and jumpy. Also, do make sure to arrive early for the surf-magic of The Garrys.
Hosted by the Remai Modern on Friday, Turn Out – Après May is a special performance featuring Slow Down Molasses, Zoey Roy, Kay The Aquanaut and Steph Cameron that marks the 50th anniversary of the street protests and political unrest of May ’68 in France. The show includes a screening of the film Ciné-Tracts, a series of silent documentary shorts that depict the political turmoil in Paris.
Love burritos and bands? Want to shake off the Monday blahs? Tonight at Amigos, the Saskatoon Pride Festival and OUTSaskatoon are hosting a burrito night fundraiser with live band auditions for the upcoming Pride in the Park.
If you are feeling sort of slammy, come check out some hardcore noise on Wednesday at El Coyote. Added bonus: This show will feature “the return of one of Saskatoon’s most okayest noisemakers.” Which almost certainly means A Ghost in Drag.
Join AKA for the Summer Launch of Locals Only on Saturday, featuring work by Saskatoon-based artists Jordan Schwab and Kevin Wesaquate as well as Vancouver-based artist Justin Langlois. Also, there’s going to be a free BBQ dinner so this is pretty much a no-brainer.
