Who says Vancouver is boring?! Here's my top three picks for this weekend...
1. Like GYPSY MUSIC?? Come out on Friday Night (8:30-2am): Ederlezi Brass Party!
Where? The Legion (Commercial and 5th)Trumpet 1.jpg
What? Mark the spring holiday of EDERLEZI with a big Balkan Brass party that'll serenade your soul into a Gypsy rhythm. Indulge in hours and hours of live virtuoso performance, incredible dancers, slivovica cocktails and much much more!

2. Unhappy with Politics in Canada?  Saturday Day (1-230pm): CAPP Vancouver Presents: Andrew Coyne
Where? The Libra Room, 1608 Commercial DrSee full size imageive
What? Keynote speaker Andrew Coyne (National Editor, Maclean's magazine & member of CBC's At Issue Panel) will reflect on the state of participatory democracy, voter engagement, and parliamentary accountability in Canada. Emcee Charles Demers will facilitate an "At Issue" panel discussion with members of the audience.

3.
Seriously, do you like gypsy music? Then come Saturday Night (8pm til early morning!) to Feathers & Fedoras Party!
Where? Adventure Den 33 East 3rd Ave (close to Main)
Why? It's going to be a CraJEE dancing event with local gypsy band Mezamazin & the Hipster hobos! + tix only $7

+ I must plug Northern Voice, Downtown Bhangra + Delhi2Dublin CD Launch Party as they are not to be missed events!
