Weekend Round-Up: Fresh Meat, Alice Russell, OcktoberFest and more

It’s the weekend JUMP UP and head out!

The event of the weekend is undoubtedly UK soul singer Alice Russell performing Saturday night at Ritual Nightclub (137 Besserer St) 21$ 10pm A rising star not to be missed at such an intimate venue. Get in and see the UK’s latest export – bringing her own original soul sound. Reminiscent of Amy & Adele in that Alice Russell is another powerful inimitable vocal tour de force.

FreshMeat Theatre FestivFireFlood Theatre1al kicks off this weekend at the Lunenburg Pub promising a selection of 20minute plays from stand-out troupes, many from this year’s Fringe Festival. Emerging is my favourite kind of theatre and no better place then at a pub with drink in hand. Conviviality and culture make a fantastic mix. Oct 17-19 & 24-26 7pm

The Ottawa Dance Directive launches the new season with performances of  Too Near Friday & Saturday night ramping up to a silent auction and Dance Party on Sunday evening.  All takes place from 7:30 nightly at ArtsCourt.

Oktoberfest has arrived in the Byward Market and it wouldn’t be a celebration without Sandy Hill culinary star Andree Riffou on the scene. Sunday – and Monday – C’est Bon Cooking  will be hosting OktoberFest Food Tours. Sounds tasty!

DSCN7455Sunday its the Good Food Market Sandy Hill open from 11am-2pm at 731A Chapel st for all your healty eats.

Final mention is OperaLyra launches Pirates of Penzance on Sunday at Arts Court Theatre 2 Daly Ave. Tickets are going so fast they’ve added a fifth performance due to overwhelming demand. If you fancy a light-hearted comical production with great songs and talent book in fast.
