And we’re (almost) back to the weekend! It’s hard to believe that it’s already time for Westfest, but indeed, this free music festival has crept up on us once again. Sure, we’ve known the lineup for a while, but that’s only built up the excitement. Plus, getting a head start on music festival enthusiasm can only be a good thing – or at least that’s what the organizers of the Arboretum music+arts festival are convinced of. Head down to Babylon tonight to get a taste of what this newest festival... | Continue reading article

If you missed the crazy fun that was Chinatown last week, have no fear – the art stays up for another few weeks. You might have to create your own installation pieces or bring your own robots, though… (If you need a gently used set of robots, your best bet is to check out the punkottawa.com flea market Saturday, at the Bronson Centre.) Or you could just be lazy and spend the long weekend in your pjs. Why not? 1982 was an epic year – we got our Charter, awesome... | Continue reading article

It’s going to be a great weekend in Chinatown. The weather looks great, making it a perfect day for a stroll through the arch to take in a remixed version of Chinatown. For the fourth year in a row, local Chinatown businesses have teamed up with Ottawa-based artists to turn Chinatown into one huge gallery. From the Daily Grind in the East to Purple Urchin in the West – 54 different locations are taking part. You’ve got a month to take in the art, but today you can take in... | Continue reading article

Weekend roundup: What to do in Ottawa

Written by on

Let’s get the big ones out of the way: Comiccon and Chinatown Remixed are happening this weekend. That’s not as simple as it sounds – Browncoats Burlesque will be performing Heroes vs Villains: The Aftermath! as part of Comiccon weekend, and there’s a Masquerade. Chinatown Remixed will have – yes, it’s true – remote-controlled robots. And delicious food. So there’s at least half – if not all – of your weekend eaten up by fun. What can you do with the rest of your time? Let’s find out. You’ve heard... | Continue reading article

Weekend roundup: What to do in Ottawa’s neighbourhoods

Written by on

This weekend is the perfect time to get out and about and enjoy your neighbourhood, so that you’re well-equipped to exercise your democratic right and vote in our continuing Neighbourhood Wars. Jane’s Walk is one way to do it, as is hopping on your bike, but the events below will give you an extra excuse to hit the ‘hoods for a good time! Hintonburgers (the people, not the food) can meander down into neighbouring West Wellington for the 1st Thursday Art Walk tonight. It’s your last chance to catch Where the... | Continue reading article

The Bronson Centre is a happening place this weekend, people – the Joel Plaskett Emergency and Frank Turner tonight, and Measha Brueggergosman Friday night – both shows that promise to bring it. Tonight you can also get your punk/hardcore fix with Dayglo Abortions and EndPrograms at Mavericks, while jazz aficionados can hear inspirations from Dave Frishberg’s songs. Also? The Wooden Sky is out at the Black Sheep – their indie rockings are well worth the trek out there. Rawbeat rockers StillNative will stop by The Daily Grind on Friday, while... | Continue reading article

Romping through the forest on an adventure with wild characters might seem to be a memory from a childhood story, but no matter your age, it does raise the question of our interaction with nature. And with Earth Day just behind us, the themes behind Where the Wild Things…Aren’t? seem especially timely. The exhibit, which opened on Sunday, contains a variety of work from nine artists, including locals Barbara Cuerden, Stefan Thompson, and Carmella Karijo Rother. It’s been a busy week for curator Cynthia Mykytyshyn (who is currently completing a Master’s degree... | Continue reading article

Weekend roundup: Stuff to do in Ottawa

With our Neighbourhood Wars just around the corner, we’re extra sensitive to any neighbourhood-specific activities going on. Want chickens in your backyard? Curious about how a neighbourhood, razed 50 years ago, is going to stage a comeback? You’ve got ‘hood options for this weekend, folks. And for the rest of the weekend, you can bust out your Scrabble board, actually Bust a Move, or experience Shakespeare’s Interactive Circus. If you like bustin’ a move, this is your weekend of endless dance parties. Start out with the Electric Ballroom at Zaphod’s... | Continue reading article
