Ouroboros / Hear/Say / Big Space (Goodbye McCarthy and Martin)
Friday 10:30pm @ The Ship Pub
Come say goodbye to two local favourites, and 3 very original and unmistakable local bands. Both Andrew McCarthy (drummer of the dancy jazzy horn-driven band, Ouroboros) and Adam Martin (frontman of the hop hop rock group Hear/Say) are “heading up to the big smoke in a few weeks, so it’s only appropriate that we have a big party for them,” the Facebook event reads.
10:45 Big Space
Matturday Wright Live
Sunday 8pm-10pm @ Yellowbelly Brewery
Local funny guy Matt Wright (Just for Laughs, This Hour Has 22 Minutes) hosts his final “Matturday Night Live” event of the summer, featuring comics John Sheehan (Halifax & St. John’s Comedy Fest), Vicky Mullaley (2017 funniest Newfoundlander Contest), Chris Tobin (Yuk Yuk’s), and musical guest, Steve Maloney, with a few sketches and some improv thrown in for good measure. $20 at the door.
Sunday 1:00pm-4:00pm @ The Rooms
Nature Newfoundland and Labrador is hosting a Nature Nook event for families at The Rooms this Sunday afternoon. At the event Naturalists will give kids a chance to interact with real seal pelts, antlers, and whale baleen, among other specimens.
