Calgary actually has lots of stuff to do
If there is one thing I’m so sick of hearing people say about Calgary, it is that there is nothing to do.
Calgary is literally the cultural capital of Canada right now so if you think that there is nothing to do, move to Vancouver, because this city doesn’t need you.
I realize that there are some people who are lazier than others though, so I’m going to help you out with my best picks of what you should be checking out.
Hopefully, you were at the Arkells show on Sept. 4 at SAIT. If not, you should head over to MacEwan Hall on Sept. 6 to catch M83 play a very lucid live show.
MacEwan Hall is also the place to be on Sept. 11 to catch grunge favourite Stone Temple Pilots. The day after, you can catch Canadian rock group Sloan at Republik.
Finally, get your indie fill with Tallest Man on Earth and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes back at MacEwan Hall on Sept. 13 and 17 respectively.
If you’re looking for some theatre, head over to Theatre Calgary and catch the “riveting rock musical” Next to Normal, running from Sept. 11 on.
If you’re in the mood to laugh and laugh hard, Loose Moose is the place to be. Besides their usual weekend gold, Rebecca Northan is bringing her creation Blind Date back to Calgary after touring internationally. This show really should not be missed under any circumstances, and is running on select dates from Sept. 5 to 15.
Finally, if you aren’t getting enough out of school, it is adult night at the Science Centre on Sept. 16. Now, get out there. No more complaining. That is more than enough to last you two weeks.
