Will your weekend ahead sorely miss the presence of some saxophone? Commemorating Edmonton’s most prestigious jazz venue’s 60th anniversary, The Yardbird Suite is celebrating with a host of Canada’s most talented sax players, directed by Montreal’s Remi Bolduc. This Saxophone Summit hosts an impressive lineup including Bolduc himself, Kirk MacDonald, Kelly Jefferson, Phil Dwyer, and Edmonton product P.J. Perry. Come down, drink fancy cocktails (I assume that’s what jazz connoisseurs drink) and enjoy one of the finer musical art forms.

Do you like wrassling? What about mockumentaries a la The Office? If you said yes to either of these, HEEL KICK is sure to piledrive you with laughs.

The film’s first of two world premiere screenings will take place the Garneau Theatre tonight. These exclusive screenings will be seen with the cast & crew of the film and include a live Q&A and official afterparty at the NightJar.
