MUSIC | 6th Annual Bob Marley Birthday Tribute Weekend
If the legendary reggae king Bob Marley were still alive, he'd be celebrating his 66th birthday this Sunday February 6th. There's no question that celebrations (of some form) will be happening all over the city, but one of the chief parties happening is the one at Annex Wreckroom. They are actually throwing two, both in support of the Yonge St. Mission Food Bank. Tonight's performers include Blessed, the Legendary Willi Williams, Truths and Rights, Kaesun and more.
The Annex Wreckroom (794 Bathurst Street), 9:30pm $10
ILLUSTRATE | Opening Night: Sketchrieg Presents Paper Trail
Paper Trail is a collaborative comic book narrative where the comic artists and illustrators that make up the collective Sketchrieg each take a turn at illustrating a panel, not knowing what the other artist before them has drawn up for the story. What results is a graphic adventure with unexpected twists and turns that even the creators themselves are not aware of. It is being presented tonight, worth a visit! Note: This was originally scheduled for last night but has been rescheduled to tonight.

Vancouver's Natural Flavas will be at the Port Theatre next week to celebrate the birthday of reggae legend Bob Marley.
The 3rd annual Bob Marley Birthday Bash is quickly becoming a Nanaimo tradition because of Marley's inter-generational and culture-spanning musical legacy which gives the party wide appeal. Natural Flavas have established themselves as the foremost purveyors of authentic reggae in their hometown music scene, and headline the show with their high energy mix of roots and rocksteady. Lush vocal harmonies accompany dancehall sounds, which gives the crowds something more than mellow reggae jams. ( Read Bob Marley Birthday more... )
