We’ve moved into March and the past couple of days have actually been colder than they have been all winter. Naturally, most of us are tired of the never-ending season and look forward to milder days. Although March is a rather uncertain month when it comes to the weather, it’s still an exciting time ahead if you look at the variety of events scheduled to take place in and around the National Capital Region in the coming weeks.
Here’s a look at what’s to come in the days ahead…
A reminder that Plants and Animals will be at Ritual this Thursday, March 8 to perform songs from their latest album The End of That. Opening for the Montreal-based band is Thus:Owls. Tickets are on sale at Vertigo Records, The Record Shaap or online at www.ticketweb.ca. Event details available here.
Also on Thursday, there is a Biggie Smalls aka Notorious BIG tribute taking place at Babylon as of 11pm. Minimal details can be found on the poster below. For the hip-hop heads who want something to do before the weekend kicks off.
This Friday, March 9, Zaphod’s will be celebrating its 20th anniversary of existence with special live performances by Ottawa’s own Sound of Lions and Exeter . Tickets are only $10 and doors open at 9pm.
On Saturday March 10, Kapacity Entertainment presents the one and only Masta Ace live in concert at Ritual with special guests Marco Polo & Stricklin. The show includes local opening acts Brokenbridge, Stay and several more. Fore more information click on the poster below…
B.C. group Hey Ocean will be live at Ritual on March 15 as part of their cross-Canadian tour. The infectious party-pop trio combines sheer talent, charismatic songs, and offer an undeniably energetic live show, making them a must-see band. Check out event details here.
Friday, March 16, there will be an Open Mic at the Raw Sugar Cafe presented by Algonquin College Public Relations students to raise funds for the Shepherds of Good Hope. This is a great way to give back to the local community while having a good time Tickets are $10 and the acts start at 9pm.
On March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day for those who are Irish and also the ones who aren’t but celebrate for the fun of it. Many bars and restaurants in and around Ottawa will be offering specials and providing entertainment. Here are just two of the many St. Patrick’s Day related events taking place in the Capital.
Last but certainly not least, Ariane Moffatt will give a show at the Museum of Civilization in Gatineau on Saturday March 24 in front of hundreds of people. Ariane will perform songs off her latest album MA just recently released along with older material and classics from her repertoire. I’m convinced that this show will be beyond excellent! Tickets are still on sale here.
This is it for Eventful Capital until the week of March 25 for vacation reasons! Here’s to hoping there will be no more snow on the ground when I get back to the NCR! Until then, enjoy the events and activities you’ll partake in over the upcoming days and please share anything you feel is worth mentionning with fellow residents
