HANK BULL & BRUCE BARBER @ SMU ART GALLERY


Curated by Joni Low and Pat Wendt, the Saint Mary's University Art Gallery (923 Robie Street) has a full art-weekend planned for you. You're invited to the following events: on Friday at 7pm, Vancouver-based artist Hank Bull speaks on his sculptural installation that aligns "artwork with communication technologies, costumes and documents," before the official opening at 8pm (free). On Saturday at 3pm (free), artist and NSCAD faculty Bruce Barber will give a talk before Hank and Arthur Bull perform "blues, roots, hokum and storytelling" at The Company House (2202 Gottingen Street) at 7pm (by donation). In our age of technology, this will illuminate.

KHYBER FUNDRAISER: MOON, GOLDILOCKS & MORE 

On Saturday night at The Khyber (1880 Hollis Street, 10pm, $8), there's a musical fundraiser — fun-raiser! — featuring Halifax's Moon, DJ Goldilocks (Cat Abreu), DJ Fancy Pants (Jess Ross), Horse Heaven (Evan Cardwell) and Nigel Chapman (Nap Eyes). All proceeds will go towards a new SUB-WOOFER for the music and art space because it needs one "like WOAH!" and all of those bands and artists totally fucking rock. It'll help the Khyber keep putting on shows!
