Hippies Celebrate          Dec. 26

The Capitol

Boxing Day can be a time to chill out with a little locally made music. Parab Poet & The Hip Hop Hippies began in 2013 and quickly became a fixture on our music scene. This year the group cut its first self- titled album and I’m sure you’ve seen this video pop up on your Facebook feed for the single Just Breath. It should be a great evening to kick back and relax. Tickets are $15 – $20.

Musical Tribute           Dec. 26

Amigos Cantina

It’s a day to remember a man that worked tirelessly to support our local music scene. Derek Bachman died 2 years ago. He was SaskMusic’s Executive Director and he put bands like Slow Down Molasses into an international touring sphere. Now local musicians are giving back by creating the Derek Bachman Foundation to raise money to support Sask musicians touring abroad. This will also be the launch of 2016 In Tune, a compilation of Saskatchewan music in 2016. Tickets are $10.
