SNAP at 40: Anniversary Showcase: Oh, they’re growing so fast! The Society of Northern Alberta Print-artists (SNAP) will be rolling out a series of events over the next few weeks, starting with the Anniversary Showcase Show. SNAP hung a variety of prints from an archive of thousands of works for viewers to ponder. All of these indicate the era in which they were created. The artist-run center has also created the SNAP at 40 series. A portfolio of 10 artists each, and another Future Forwards portfolio, focus on black artists from Edmonton, Montreal and Toronto. All will be available in the gallery from August 12th. But in the meantime, feel free to stop by and see the show.

we: Psychedelic-funk metal band Us will release their EP Come Along With Us on Saturday and play the entire album live. Excitingly, The Light Psychlone — Ty Yakiwchuk from Unstoppable Record Collectors Paradise — will be performing live projection art on the side of the building during the show. “Overhead projectors use a style known as a ‘squish plate’. In this style, we use a transparent convex watch dial and all the liquid he sandwiches between two plates, creating a pulsating effect,” he explains Yakiwchuk. “By mixing oil, water and dyes, you can create very vivid and psychedelic patterns to the rhythm of the music.” With great sound, When April Met July and The Usual Suspects open.

delboy druid: Jasper-based, Winnipeg-raised “hobo rock” singer-songwriter Del Boy Druid heads Blackbar on Saturday before moving on to tour BC with The Goodsons and Sharp Sharp Knives opening. This fan of tree planters, troublemakers, vagabonds and destroyers has a no-nonsense vibe, and having dressed up as a substitute teacher for a gig, he’s clearly got a sense of humor as well.
