this weekend: shows & happenings


The first weekend of November is upon us and it's full of good things! If you're curious as to what the things are - read on. Power Duo's FREE album release show is happening Friday the 6th @ 8pm. The Parish Church of St. Michael and All Angels will surely be a lovely venue for the Prince George duo's scrappy and poignant folk harmonies. All ages! ** Tickets for the After Party are $10 a piece at Handsome Cabin Boy Tattoo. Event:


The indie rock/pop/funk/folk/northern BC vibes of Bright City Heights will be alive and well and really friggin' vivacious at the Westwood Pub, Saturday the 7th @ 9pm. 19+. No cover! Event:

Prince George's The Statistics are opening for Texture and Light, an electronic dream rock band from BC's Sunshine Coast. The cover charge is $5 but the show will be priceless. Don't miss this energetic, sweaty, and intimate experience. Saturday the 7th @ 9pm at none other than Nancy O's. 19+. Event:



The Hart Community Centre is hosting a Barn Dance Party Saturday the 7th @ 8pm. At $25 a piece, tickets include food and a shuttle service. Local country artist Rick Stavely will be playing from 8:30 to 11pm, followed by DJ Mike Boyce of Rhythm and Sound. 19+. Event:

What We Did On Our Holiday is screening Saturday the 7th @ 7pm at the College of New Caledoni, courtesy of Cinema CNC.

There's plenty to see/hear/do in Prince George this weekend and I couldn't be happier about it. But if you're more of a homebody (which I am six out of seven days of the week), you can still get your fill of arts and culture!

Here's an unorderly list of new-ish albums and not-so-new-but-equally-important movies worth checking out: - Days of Heaven by Steven Lambke (album) - Wino Oracle EP by The Zolas (album) - Currents by Tame Impala (album) - Depression Cherry by Beach House (album) - Shake, Shook, Shaken by The Dø (album) - Frank (movie) - The Kings of Summer (movie) - Mad Max: Fury Road (badass movie) - Je suis Femen (badass feminist documentary)
