AW, SHUCKS: Corb Lund seizes his Day

AW, SHUCKS: Corb Lund seizes his Day

Fitting for a day named in his honour in the City of Edmonton, Corb Lund laid down a righteous old school country shitkicking at Heritage Amphitheatre in Hawrelak Park Monday night, as part of the re-scheduled Interstellar Rodeo Festival itinerary. Starting with set-opener Hurtin’ Albertan, Lund played with the spirit of a reincarnated Wilf Carter, [...]

NO RAIN: Interstellar Rodeo ropes in Monday line-up

The show must go on – even a day late, and hopefully not a dollar short. The Interstellar Rodeo, Edmonton’s newest mini folk fest for the younger generation happening this weekend at the Hawrelak Park’s Heritage Amphitheatre, was rained out on Friday night, but organizers have assembled a stellar make-up line-up for Monday, July 28, [...]

Six Tastes of K-Days

Six Tastes of K-Days

K-Days and Taste of Edmonton combined make up Edmonton’s most popular summer festival. Both used to be under the umbrella of the Klondike Days Association, and which locals to this day still lump together for the mindlessly fun, hideously expensive and gastronomically adventurous event to which all major cities are afflicted. Did we say afflicted? [...]

(RERUN): What do homeless people think of public art?

(RERUN): What do homeless people think of public art?

Homeless people might have more important things to worry about than what they think of public art in Edmonton, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have opinions about it, or that their opinions aren’t as valid someone who isn’t homeless. Besides, they see it every day. They live here. During three days in the summer [...]

TALES OF THE WEED RUNNER: Snoop needs high grade Canadian (RERUN)

Better call the Weed Runner – Snopp Dogg is coming to Edmonton. Recently reggaefied and re-sanctified as “Snoop Lion,” the laid-back rap legend is said to be a bigger pothead than ever.

MUSICIZZLE PREVIZZLE: Snoop by any other name

His voice is the very sound of laid-back California: Snoop Dogg – previously known as Snoop Doggy Dogg and recently rebranded as Snoop Lion – will be in town Monday and Tuesday at Union Hall for a pair of sold out shows (a few VIP tickets remain for the second show). Snoop needs no introduction [...]

(RERUN): Parking Meter Fairy’s days numbered

(RERUN): Parking Meter Fairy’s days numbered

The breathless Parking Meter Fairy runs to catch a parking enforcement officer about to ticket an illegally parked car. “Am I too late to save him?!” The officer stops writing and mutters, “You could.” Oh, thank you, Parking Patrol Officer. Clink, clink, clink, clink go four quarters into the expired meter – good for 20 [...]
