Welcome to another beautiful weekend in the city. Straddled on the cusp of summer meets fall, the mornings are crisp and cool, but the afternoons still bring warmth and sunshine. There is plenty to do around town this weekend and we here at Apt613 can’t wait to tell you about it.

With the entire book of the show being sung, and no spoken dialogue, Falsettos is definitely not a mainstream show. But we know musical lovers (nerds?) like us won’t want to miss their chance to see such a rare production of a more indie style show.
Summer is not over, no matter how many back-to-school ads or Thanksgiving decorations you come across. Whether you are new to Ottawa (welcome!), re-acquainting yourself with town and campus, or just itching to get out of the house this weekend to make the most of summer, we have it all here. This weekend’s major focus seems to be local art and culture, so there is no better time to support local talent in the neighbourhoods we live in.
Supporting local isn’t just about going to the show and buying the t-shirt. It’s also about creating an environment where each and every one of us feels empowered to tell our peeps about the goodness that’s being created all around us

In April 2018, I visited Fisher Park Summit Alternative School in Ottawa. It was one of the 150 presentations I’ve done at city schools to promote positivity, self-acceptance, and resilience in students. There, I met Pei Pilgrim, a 14-year-old singer that writes and sings like a veteran of the game.
