It’s been a busy week here on the blog – we’ve been posting like mad and had some great meetings with contributors. So while some of us here might just want to kick back, eat sushi and play Perudo, for those of you hankering to go out on the town, there’s plenty to do this weekend.
First off, Ottawa’s largest antiquing event is happening down at Carleton. You might have to sift through a few boxes for that really great find, but it will be worth the $8 entry fee. There are also an event for you fashionistas, and for the crafters too.
The music line up this weekend is chock-full of East Coast goodness. Thrush Hermit is tonight – I’ve got some Haligonian friends who would do almost anything to make it to that reunion show. Also, In Flight Safety is joined by some other talented folk at Zaphod’s on Friday, with the Ketch Harbour Wolves coming by there on Saturday. Aside from the music hotbed that is Halifax, we’ve got a few other cities sending us some good music (like Montreal and Guelph).
For those more inclined to explore the realm of visual art, UofO has a great lecture on Friday featuring an artist and a theorist exploring the wide world of sculpture. Or if you’d like to see a different kind of artist in action, writer/composer/performer Gary Barwin will be at the Mercury Lounge on Saturday.
And there’s so much more, as always. As Girl About O-town astutely pointed out a few days ago, something really is happening here in Ottawa – our full social calendar illustrates that pretty well.
