Black Squirrel Books
The month of May has just blown by, and this weekend is going to be just as packed as every other weekend since the sun reappeared! The Tulip Festival is officially over, but tulips are still blooming all over the city, making for another colourful spring weekend. Get out there to enjoy them, and check out different corners of the city for some cool happenings.
It is finally spring in this wonderful city! It is time to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. There is plenty to get up to this weekend, and we know that you’re excited to get to it, so we’ve made this handy little list to get you started!
Shows are taking place May 10–12 at General Assembly, The Record Centre, Black Squirrel Books, and Queen Street Fare.
It’s technically the first weekend of spring, so the sun should be shining, the puddles will be forming, and Ottawaians (Ottawans?) may start to feel like spring will actually happen!
Beginning with simple coffee and snacks, the café has now expanded with coffee expert Stevie Pan at the helm. Black Squirrel now holds a liquor licence and their menu is expanding with a new kitchen in place.

The snow has arrived and the reality that winter is here is setting in. While the frigid temperatures may have you wanting to stay inside, hibernating and watching Netflix all weekend, there is plenty to do just beyond your doorstep—if you are willing to brave the cold!
Nearly 40 years after her first show, a now fully-matured Chandra is back on stage performing those same songs written at age 12 at Black Squirrel Books this Friday November 16, joined by Toronto experimental electronic artist New Chance, and Ottawa synth krautrocker Klapshmock.
The season’s wind down is upon us and the days are growing shorter. Thankfully for all, this holiday weekend is a day longer than typical and we can enjoy another late summer’s night.
Get out there and enjoy your weekend. Take lots of photos and be sure to tag them with #APT613.

The only thing spookier than Friday the 13th is snow in the forecast for mid-April, both of which are things we have to look forward to this weekend. Have no fear, though, because your guide to the weekend is full of hot coffee, cold beer and cool shows.
Heads up: Organizers say tickets are moving fast and last year’s inaugural Bangers & Mash sold out in advance.
