Written by on

By Scott Lillico Wednesday night’s performance of Anatomica at the National Arts Centre was sexy, humorous, and abstract. Walking into the show the audience was greeted to upbeat music and a line of dancers showing off in a light, fun way. It was like an introduction to the elements of the show – love, sex, attraction, appearance, and passion… The  human experience. The first solo in Anatomica #1 was a hilarious encompassment of a huge range of phrases, actions, and gestures related to a person overcome with love, lust, and passion. His performance was... | Continue reading article

You may be familiar with Cadence Weapon, hip-hop artist. Or Cadence Weapon, poet laureate of Alberta. But what about Cadence Weapon, DJ? Mr. Weapon (which is what I assume goes on his passport) will be in Ottawa this Saturday as part of Kelp Records’ Winter Warmer, a day-long celebration of good food, good local booze, and some pretty stellar Canadian independent music. The party kicks off at 11 a.m. at the Dom Polski SPK, with what Kelp is calling a “late morning and afternoon of beautiful deliciousness.” Called Winterfood/Winterbrew’d, it’ll... | Continue reading article

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. Before all... | Continue reading article

Musical Interlude: Silkken Laumann’s On the Mend

Written by on

Silkken Laumann’s now been around the Ottawa scene for little under a year. The trio made up of Rolf Klausener, Pat Johnson and Adam Saikeley have a few shows under their belt – the last one being a rocking DJ performance with CFCF at St. Brigid’s Centre for the Arts. The band’s managed to grab my attention with each internet teaser, track release and event they’ve participated in. Their music is cool and fun and something Ottawa definitely needed. Klausener, Saikeley and Johnson gave their fans a nice V-day present... | Continue reading article

Written by on

Hintonburg has quickly become known as the new “it” neighborhood for young professionals and it seems obvious why. The array of restaurants and other local establishments that have sprung up in the last few years have really gentrified the area. The Hintonburg Public House(1020 Wellington Street West) can now add its name to the list of new eateries worth checking out. Mismatched wood chairs and mason-jar lights are just some of the touches that lend itself to the rustic-chic atmosphere. Local art pieces also adorn the walls from budding artists... | Continue reading article

Butter chicken lovers, rejoice! Indian Express is finally ready to move into its new digs

Written by on
From Google Street ViewFrom Google Street View

Since I’ve moved to Hintonburg, Indian Express Food & Sweets has been a regular stop of mine on the way back from work. In the fall, the owners of the shop much beloved by John Baird announced they would move their shop to a bigger location at the former Wine Garden location on Somerset. The months past, and what was to be an October opening transformed into “We’re too busy at the restaurant…too many delays.” But today, I heard great news from India Express owner Rakesh Ahluwalia. “All permits are... | Continue reading article
