The Capitol Turns 5                Saturday                    

Capitol Music Club

It’s a bar that grew out of a passion for live music. The Capitol Music Club began when four high school friends made a bid to save the old Lydia’s Pub from the wrecking ball. They didn’t save the building but they did manage to rescue all of its contents. That’s when they found a new location and created what has quickly become Saskatoon’s hottest place to see live bands. The Capitol is celebrating 5 years in business with comedian Mike Dambra and a dance party. On Saturday night, Close Talker will take the stage. The band is getting ready to release its latest album How Do We Stay Here? later this summer. $10 on Friday and $20 on Saturday will get you in the door to toast this local hotspot.
