The unaffectedly cool anti-pop star and chanteuse of the wildly popular Royals, Lorde, performed in Ottawa this past Thursday, September 11th as part of this year’s Ottawa Folk Fest line-up. With surprisingly relatable lyrics, I’m a fan of Lorde not only for her haunting music but her subtle confidence. Without relying on barely-there clothing or abiding by every style rule, she proves that modesty and a strong sense of self can be chic, too. Though the singer first shot to stardom as a result of her entirely unique sound comprised... | Continue reading article

September’s Ottawa Folk Fest marks the end of a summer of wonderful outdoor music festivals. Here is an account of its sights and sounds. Wednesday On a slightly cooler than usual September night, I arrived on the grounds as they were just opening. As I entered, workers were just putting the finishing touches on the Hill stage, located on the north side. There was also a delightful trolling gypsy vaudeville act offering free wedding ceremonies, complete with musical accompaniment of accordion, bass drum, and violin.

Art in progress at Pub 101

“Drink creatively”. What comes to mind when you read this slogan? Try learning to paint while sipping a glass of wine or your favorite drink in a local bar (maybe one reminiscent of those good ol’ days). In just two hours, you’ll have your very own artist’s (ok, amateur artist’s) chef d’oeuvre. The activity is called PaintNite. I attended a PaintNite event in late August thanks to a very good friend’s creative gift shopping: A PaintNite event at Hooley’s on Elgin Street for four. (Yes, Hooley’s is reminiscent of those... | Continue reading article
