HAPPENINGS: JUNE

June is looking like a quiet month on the fashion front, but there are still tons of awesome local arts and music events to get your party on. 

Chad VanGaalen Concert
Wednesday, June 4 / 8pm / The Starlite Room, 10030 102 Street, Edmonton
Though his weepy voice and intense lyrics can be a total bummer sometimes, Chad VanGaalen will always be one of my go-to's for long road trips, or rainy afternoons with a lover reading comic books and drinking coffee. The Soft Airplane album, especially this song, gets a lot of play in these ears. Bonus: He's from Calgary, so that's pretty cool.

Pecha Kucha Night 19
Thursday, June 5 / 6:30-10:30pm / Sir Winston Churchill Square, Edmonton

Interesting folks talk about interesting things! This edition of Pecha Kucha features talks on everything from beekeeping to professional wrestling. I'm mostly excited to hear from David Rauch on his pop-up public pianos project. 

Mercer Summer Super Party
Friday, June 6 / 5-10:30pm / Mercer Warehouse 10359-104 Street, Edmonton
The Mercer Building (where the DMD Headquarters is btw) is hosting an all-floors shindig with food trucks, live music, a pop-up market, and dance party. My guess is the 10:30 pm "end time" is a loose suggestion. You best not be missing this one. 

Nextfest Music Night
Friday, June 6 / 9pm / The Artery, 9535 Jasper Ave, Edmonton
Lad Mags, Switches, Jom Comyn! YA!

Prairie Yogi Magazine Edmonton Launch
Wednesday, June 11  / 6-7:15pm / Latitude 53, 10242 106 St, Edmonton
A new online publication is launching in E-town and this little yogi is pretty stoked! Join us for a sweaty Saatva session to celebrate!

Latitude 53 Patio Party
Thursday, June 12 / 5-9pm / Latitude 53, 10242, 106 St, Edmonton

The contemporary art gallery brings back its mega popular weekly summer shindig, and this is the first of the season! Expect cold Alley Kats, fine noshings, music, art and friendly folks, all in the great artdoors. 


PARKSALE
June 21-22 / Haultain Park 225-13 Ave, Calgary

PARK presents another awesome outdoor market featuring local and independent artists and designers for you to shop. Rumour has it there will be some Sled Island bands popping by...
