As a Special Events Coordinator, I not only enjoy organizing events but I also love to attend a variety of them. From music festivals to exhibition inaugurations and Canada Day celebrations, I enjoy an entertaining event like a wine connoisseur appreciates a quality glass of wine.
I’m currently really looking forward to two events that I will be attending within the next two weeks.
The first event I’m excited about is a club show by electro-hop/rap artist Kid Sister hailing from Chicago, Illinois. I’m actually making a huge exception for this one. The show is happening tomorrow night, a Monday night, and although you’d normally never find me in a club on a Monday, I’m not missing this for the world. I’ve been wanting to see this girl ever since I discovered her back in 2007 when she released her “Pro Nails” single produced by one of my all-time favorite DJs A-Track and featuring the ever-so special Kanyeze West. There’s just something about her that makes her stand out from all the other female rap artists out there. Unique, super funky and with an incredibly original style and sound, she’s sure to offer an outstanding and highly energetic performance.
The show’s going down at Ritual, a club that currently offers some of the best club nights and concerts in Ottawa. Opening for Kid Sister is Ottawa’s-own Bear Witness from the all-Native DJ crew A Tribe Called Red, who’ll warm the crowd by spinning sweet sexy bass and heavy beats that are guaranteed too make people move their body. I always have tons of fun when the ATCR boys are in the building I’ll let you know how it was after the fact, but no need to say this event’s going to be a banger.
The second event I’m dying to attend is the Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson “The Immortal World Tour” which is stoping in Ottawa the weekend of October 8. I’m beyond stoked for this one, because the Cirque du Soleil is in my opinion the best circus troop in the world and they will be presenting a tribute based on one of the best musicians and performers of all-time, the one and only King of Pop. Based on Guy Laliberte’s record and long list of successful productions, this show will definitely blow minds and go down in history just like the icon it’s based on. I’m not sure what to expect, but I’m convinced that I won’t be disappointed thanks to the colourful creativity, breath-taking originality and definite wow-factor that the Cirque du Soleil deliver time and time again!!
I’ll let you know how much fun the events were once they’ve taken place…more to come!
