Legacy – A Tribute to Gord Downie is an evening of music in support of the fund. Artists like Tom Wilson, Twin Flames and Kevin Fox will play some of their favourite Downie tunes and share stories of reconciliation in their own lives. Tickets are $8 – $10.

We all know the pressure, awkwardness and fun that comes along with a high school reunion. That’s the setting for Mini Fridge Theatre Company’s latest show as it follows four college buddies, home to celebrate on the golf course. This dinner theatre company has had many obstacles in front of it in the last few months. The pandemic and the closure of its regular venue the Saskatoon German Cultural Centre put plans for performance in jeopardy. Luckily the Mini Fridge crew didn’t give up. This show will be held at St. John’s Anglican Cathedral Hall and will feature a physically distanced performance and a catered supper. You still have this weekend to see the show. Single tickets are $60 with tables of four for $220 and a table of 6 runs $330.
The pandemic has thrown curveballs at all of us and touring musicians and venues have been particularly hard hit. Folk rock band Shred Kelly has found a way to support its new music and share a little love with Saskatoon’s Capitol Music Club in the process.

This is a chance to have a kitchen party and a portion of the proceeds of your ticket will go towards supporting local, live music. Tickets are pay-what-you-can between $5 – $20.
