1. Neil Young at the Scotiabank Saddledome (Tuesday, Nov. 13)
The legendary Neil Young brings Crazy Horse to the ‘Dome. There are tickets still available, but probably not at the lower end of the spectrum.
2. Will Ferguson at John Dutton Theatre, W.R. Castell Central Library (Tuesday, Nov. 13)
Will Ferguson recently won the Giller Prize for his thriller, 419. Celebrate the achievements of this local author with a reading presented by WordFest.
3. Metric and Stars at Stampede Corral (Wednesday, Nov. 14)
A great double-header of CanCon in the barn of the Corral. Both bands are supporting new albums: Stars is touring for The North and Metric is supporting Synthetica.
4. Me Talking to Myself in the Future at Theatre Junction Grand (Wednesday, Nov. 14 to Saturday, Nov. 17)
Marie Brassard was inspired by her childhood for the play Me Talking to Myself in the Future as she tells J. Paul Halferty in this interview. Theatre Junction presents her work, which is a solo performance and a surreal self-portrait. (Edit: Apparently the Halferty interview link isn’t working for some people, so here’s an interview the Calgary Herald’s Stephen Hunt did with Brassard from Tuesday’s newspaper.)
5. Soundasaurus at the Engineered Air Theatre, Epcor Centre (Thursday, Nov. 15 to Saturday, Nov. 17)
It’s the fourth year for this festival of experimental sound, media, performance and visual arts. You may hear some strange things, but it will definitely be aurally fascinating.
