To Do: Weekend of February 23rd – 26th (Updated)

Kaia Kater performs tonight at the Hill Center

Hey there! Exciting times, exciting times… But hey, the weather is nice.

We have no idea what this means so carpe the heck out of this diem, folks.

Tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Hill Center, African-Caribbean Canadian Kaia Kater performs her unique blend of Canadian folk and Appalachian music. Her new album, Nine Pin (May 2016), focuses on the realities faced by people of color in North America and it won the Canadian Folk Music Award for ‘Pushing the Boundaries’. Tickets are $15: Get them here.

Friday evening the INTERSECTIONS Festival opens at the Atlas Performing Arts center. This all-arts festival celebrates the places where art forms, genres, cultures and ages connect. The packed schedule will have something for everyone– literally everyone. (Unless you hate fun– MHC) There is theatre, dance, music, vocal, choral, opera, visual arts, video, film, writing, sculpture, photography, circus, spoken word, public art, and of course stuff for kids– SO much. The full schedule can be found here. Friday evening, check out Prakriti Dance’s performance of Amba Shikandi: A Journey of Courage, a story taken from the epic Mahabharata. The performance begins at 8 p.m. and tickets are $20. Get them here.

Saturday SUNDAY might be the oddest event yet: It is the annual Ice Yards at The Yards Boardwalk from noon-5pm. For $10 per ticket, you can enjoy live music, one free drink and a variety of vendors serving food and drink including snow cones and last summer’s drink, frosé. Instead of the usual parkas attendees might be able to wear sundresses and flip-flops. Get your tickets here.

Sunday night is the Oscars, and before you settle in with the popcorn and catty dress assessments give back with the folks from Jan’s Tutoring House. The annual Red Carpet Celebration supports the ongoing work the organizations does with children in local schools. Enjoy food and drink, chat with friends and bid on items in the silent auction. The festivities take place at the Hill Center from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and the awards ceremony will be hosted by Tommy Wells. Tickets are $25 and you can get yours here.
