This weekend’s all about getting warm – we might be having an early spring, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to stay cozy in the meantime. Kelp Records is all about that this weekend, with their annual Winter Warmer down at the Dom Polski. They’ll have beer, they’ll have food, they’ll have music. What more can you ask for? Dancing? That’ll likely happen, although it’s guaranteed down at Timekode. If a key ingredient of your weekend is crafts, Spins and Needles’ February Monster Party is for you.

Review by Averie MacDonald. Pictures by Joel Eastwood. To call it “girl power” wouldn’t really do it justice. But there was definitely something powerful hanging in the atmosphere last Saturday night at Ottawa’s first Women’s Slam Championship. To be sure, it was a night about women. The line-up featured a handpicked selection of Ottawa’s finest female poets. The poetry was full of empowering messages passed from sister to sister. Even the music fit the theme — DJ Prufrock spun an all-girl soundtrack featuring legends like Lauryn Hill. But the slam... | Continue reading article

Weekend roundup: What to do in O-town

Written by on

Photo courtesy Mikey G Ottawa on Flickr. As you’ll see from the listings below, the city has woken up from its post-holiday hibernation and has thrown itself into full-fledged winter fun mode. On the schedule for this weekend? Dog sled rides in Gatineau, a Winter Bike Parade, and likely a few snowball fights. Kalle Mattson plays tonight, bringing some indie rock to the stage at Mavericks. If you’re hoping to indulge in some dance-y tunes, head to Club Saw this evening for Anamanguchi. There will be DJ stylings down at... | Continue reading article

It’s another full weekend, Ottawa. At the very least, you’re going to have to choose between elegant picnicking, documentaries and a bakery birthday party – and there are even more options to add to that mix below. Slim Moore and the Mar-Kays have their cd release party tonight at Babylon, while it’s an evenin’ with The Walkouts at the Elmdale, a bit of Stevie Wonder out west and Indie Night at GigSpace. On Friday, Dan Mangan sweeps into town with his near-rhyming name, and Grey Kingdom with Baby Eagle will... | Continue reading article

This weekend we’ve got plenty of chances to get some culture, Ottawa – and it’s not just because Culture Days will be all across the city all weekend long.

Weekend roundup: What to do in Ottawa

Written by on

So it’s officially fall, and therefore officially harvest time. Which perfectly positions the O-town Hoedown music festival and – even though it’s next weekend, get your tickets! – Oktoberfest out in Vankleek Hill. A little closer to home, you can mark autumn by crushing grapes in Little Italy. However, if you can’t make it out to any harvest themed events, we’ve got the lowdown on all of the ways you can celebrate fall – or ping pong, for that matter. While you can enjoy the colours of the Gatineau Hills... | Continue reading article
