THE EVENT

Send + Receive  

The 19th iteration of Send + Receive, one of North America’s longest running media arts festivals to investigate the disciplines of experimental music and sound art, is happening throughout the Exchange until the end of the weekend. From Friday and Saturday night’s sound art experiences at ace art, to Sunday afternoon’s intimate show by Joe McPhee and Graham Lambkin at Forth, Send + Receive is always a once-in-a-lifetime event you have to experience to believe.

THE STAGE

Raffi @ Pantages Playhouse  

It’s funny to think about it, but Raffi has been singing his songs to the little ones for 40 years now, meaning the kids he once performed for may already have teenagers of their own. To commemorate four decades of sing-alongs (and his first album, Singable Songs for the Very Young), he’s bringing such hits as “Baby Beluga” and “Bananaphone” to the Pantages Playhouse Theatre on Saturday, October 14. Tickets start at just $25 and are available through Ticketmaster.

THE EATS

Peg Beer Co. Year One Party  

On Saturday, October 14 come on out to 125 Pacific to celebrate the first anniversary of Peg Beer Co. With new beers on tap throughout the day, a special Growler Bar exclusive, and a celebratory beer flight and cheese pairing, it’s looking to be a flavour-filled time!

THE DISPLAY

Eclecticism @ Artbeat Studio

On now until October 21, Eclecticism is a collection of new works from Artbeat alumnus Regina Chyzy. Known mostly for working with Waste Not Winnipeg on a series that repurposes found objects as creative materials, Chyzy has also worked alongside marginalized people, instructing and creating alongside them. Her work is incredibly personal and innovative, and Eclecticism is a show not to be missed.
