Friday November 16
This Friday, The Winnipeg Folk Festival presents an Open Mic night hosted by Red Moon Road. The Winnipeg Folk Festival holds Open Mic’s once a month, so why not head out before it gets too cold to leave home? Meet up with some friends, play a song or two, or simply come by to watch. Open Mic helps give anyone the chance to show off their skills with other musicians like them
Come pick up the mic on November 16th for The Winnipeg Folk Festival’s Open Mic at the Folk Exchange! Players get in free; entry fee for non-players is $2 (more reason to show off your skills!) Doors open at 7 pm. -SD
Saturday November 17
GWAR is coming, once again, to Winnipeg. Sure, these intergalactic weirdos come through town almost once a year, but if you have never seen GWAR, or it’s been a while, I suggest you make haste to the Garrick on Saturday and see this show for yourself. Blood, guts, ooze, monsters, aliens, killing, cod fish; GWAR delivers on all fronts. GWAR!!!!
GWAR destroys the Garrick with DevilDriver, Cancer Bats, and Legacy of Disorder. Tickets are $42.00 in advance. -SB
