Saturday afternoon and evening there will be a protest for LGBTQ rights in Calder Plaza. I have found conflicting times with one announcement saying 1;30-4:30 but calling the protest a candle light vigil.
Saturday night at the DAAC there is a way cool show. The Comrades Fest has finally come around! A string of all new never seen before bands will be playing. They have been preparing for a few months. Some of the musicians have never played an instrument before this or never played in a group so I expect some stinkers but overwhelmingly I think it will be totally cool to see some hardcore creativity! The show starts at 6pm and is all ages! For more info check out www.thedaac.org! location 115 South Division.
The sparrows has been open for a YEAR! WOW! Time fles when you are drinking the most delicious tea of all time. On Saturday you can join staff and celebrate their anniversary with a DANCE PARTY! There will be live music featuring Jared Wekenman, Animals in Bed (jenny has a GREAT voice!) and Matt Poole is acting as the DJ! Goodies include root beer and cupcakes.
At the DAAC check out the Hardcore Punk Matinee with Runamucks, Shattered Badge and Bunny skulls! The show starts at 5pm and runs until 7:30 there is a $6 cover and the show is ALL AGES.
After the hardcore matinee stick around for LAKE, Desolation Wilderness and Patrick Elkins and JUST ADDED! The End of Times Orchestra! at the DAAC at 8pm. The show is ALL Ages, $7 gets you in the door and George highly recommends this show!
The Super Happy Funtime is taking over Sazerac Lounge on Monday with a movie themed romp. They will be performing with JustLarry. Tickets are $10 presale and $12 the night of the show.
