FRIDAY, APRIL 18

In the afternoon, why not pop by the NSCAD's Anna Leonowens Gallery (1891 Granville)? It's your last chance to see work by Annie Onyi Cheung, Cate Francis and Conor Fagan. Be sure to check out Cate Francis' work which uses drawing and printmaking to explore the relationship between the body and science.

Maybe you had the day off, so you're not at all too tired to check out Fade Out Fest at The Bus Stop Theatre (2203 Gottingen) and let the likes of Cam Smith, The Caravan and more rock your socks. Perhaps you'd rather head downtown? Start at The Halifax Music Co-Op (2170 Barrington) to hear Krasnogorsk, Kate and Rich, Nick Everett and see two short films by Corey Hinchey and Jacques Mindreau.

SATURDAY, APRIL 19

It's RECORD STORE DAY today, so why don't you head down to a local shop like TAZ Records (1521 Grafton St.), Obsolete Records (2524 Agricola st.) or Black Buffalo Records (5687 West St.) and literally pick up some sweet tunes for the rest of your weekend.

Fair warning: the NSLC is going to be closed on Sunday.

When nighttime rolls around, you should defs head to Michael's (6100 Young Street) for The Jam Vol. 6. It's Hali-legend DJ T-Woo's last show, so be sure to send him off in style.

SUNDAY, APRIL 20

It's Easter Sunday: a good day to hang out, but lots of stores are closed. If you're in need of a brew, though, head over to Propeller Brewery (2015 Gottingen)—they're open from noon til' 10pm.

There's a cool book launch going on at The Bus Stop Theatre (2203 Gottingen). Rae Spoon and Ivan E. Coyote are celebrating Gender Failure, a collection of essays that recollect their navigation of the gender spectrum.

If you're not a fan of religious rituals you might enjoy smelling a different incense, it's 4/20 after all. Head to The Seahorse to hear local reggae rockers Dub Kartel do their thing.
