Bad Buddy: Ready to bang your head and shake your hips? One of the most energetic, wild and visually amazing bands in Edmonton is rocking out at the east side’s coolest art space, the outdoor Lowlands Project Space — which also has its 11-artist outdoor show In the Weeds still up, and Lauren Crazybull’s art is also up on the walls inside. So, yeah, lots of art and music, all at once — can you even handle this much in-your-face culture? As ever, I believe in you.
Details: 8:30 p.m. at Lowlands Project Space (11208 65 St.), $20 on Lowlands’ FB page
The Witchery Market: Edmonton’s dark alternative indie market returns to one of our appropriately ancient buildings, Acacia Hall, with 23 vendors, ready to hook you up with crafts, witchy merch and even tarot readers doing divination. Pagan art, babushka scarves, big statement jewelry, mysterious tomes and essential oils — it’s all here for your perusal at the last Witchery Market till October, from tongue-in-cheek cute cat tchotchkes to some seriously wicked dark arts fare to keep on the top shelf … not to mention plenty of scented goods to pamper yourself in the bath. Starts Friday, opens 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, as well — black hats totally optional, but please mask up.
Details: 4 p.m. – 9 p.m. at Acacia Hall (10433 83 Ave), no charge
