Where Are Your Stories?: Over the last two months, The Horizon Lab has been creating brand-new theatrical content, a series of 10-minute performances running under the theme, Where Are Your Stories? The first live audiences in half a year continue Saturday with this celebration of BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and disabled artists’ narratives. Just a key note: the Citadel opens at 6:45 p.m. with just two entrances open, the south exterior doors or via the elevator in the library parkade. 14+ and strong language warning, which should also be applied to pretty much anywhere in the downtown core these days, honestly.
Details: 7:30 p.m. at Shoctor Theatre (9828 101A Ave.), free with booking at citadeltheatre.com
Ayla Brook & the Sound Men: The first of two pop-up shows (Aug. 29 and Sept. 4), one of Edmonton’s tightest and best-sounding bands, thanks to pretty well everyone in the band literally being a sound guy. But it’s actually Brook’s songwriting and I’d say honest heart that glues it all together, worth checking out live. To find out where the events are — part of the weirdness of now is arrangements like these — contact the band through social media at @aylabrookmusic and, if it’s not full, they’ll tell you. Yep, it’s like that — a treasure hunt of sorts … but that’s how you get to the gold, little digger.
