I had originally intended to feature the Stereos gig at the Distrikt tonight with The Midway State, Artist Life and The Envy as pick-of-the-day. But that fell through. Checking the headliners out on-line, it's just as well, as they do exude a bit of a poseur vibe. To begin with, they're from Edmonton. So why is that one dude with the tats sporting a Chicago Bulls jersey? Big fan of the NBA? Or just searching for that ever elusive punk/hip hop street cred?
If you were keen to see them though, don't sweat it, as Stereos will be backing up Hedley at Brandt Centre on March 30. Today though, especially if you're a parent, or you can arrange to borrow some kids for the afternoon, you might want to drop by the Royal Saskatchewan Museum for a holiday celebration. In addition to cider and goodies, there'll be musical entertainment courtesy of the the Regina Community Orchestra, Cadence and Eddie & the Shone-delles. There'll also be a screening of the movie Prancer, along with an opportunity to check out the museum's various galleries and displays.
Overall, sounds like a great way to spend the afternoon. There's no charge, but the RSM will be collecting donations on behalf of the Regina Humane Society.
