Chest Fever


The Bassment

So many of their songs have become part of our history . The Band formed as a blend of Canadian and American musicians that began in the late 60s and influenced greats like George Harrison, Elton John and Eric Clapton. Now you can hear its hit songs like Up on Cripple Creek and The Weight once again live. San Diego’s Chest Fever is the only act that’s sanctioned by The Band Official and the late Robbie Robertson to perform The Band’s hits. You can see the group live for $30 – $40.

In the Next Room

June 12 – 16

BackStage Stage

Remai Arts Centre

Saskatoon’s got a new theatre company in town and it’s got a boundary-pushing play ready to debut. Lolabrickida Theatre’s founder and director Laura Negraeff created the company with the idea of telling edgier stories. Wish granted as the cast hits the stage next week with In the Next Room or the vibrator play. The story follows Dr. Givings, his family, staff, and patients as they seek treatment in his home clinic. It’s the 1800’s and along with the growing popularity of electricity is the medical use of a vibrator to treat women with hysteria. This is a play about women taking control of their lives and bodies and it uses comedy to address taboo subjects. Tickets are $25 – $35.
