CALGARY — September is upon us, with a flurry of students laden with back to school gear, a cooling of temperatures, and the last few summer festivals packed into a short few weeks. To start the month off a little differently, local rapper Eazy Mac brings us Music For The Visually Impaired, a short film premiering at The Plaza Theatre September 1st. Meant as an accompaniment for his album release, the premiere seeks to eschew the limits of logic in favour of progression and will be followed by an onstage interview conducted by fellow Calgarian rapper Transit.

The first week/weekend in September brings us Calgary Pride! This year’s festivities include involvement from more venues than ever before and events that span from August 25 to September 4th, so there’s plenty of time to learn, support, mingle and enjoy. Check out the Calgary Pride website for full event listings.

To round out the last dregs of festival season, two greats compete for audiences on September 10th. One Love, western Canada’s largest hip hop music festival, who this year bring us paradoxical talent like Atmosphere and Big Sean takes to Millennium Park the same day that Circle The Wagons will delight audiences and benefit our local communities. The festival that combines circus culture and playground activities, food trucks and beer, local and touring acts, electronic and acoustic, family fun and more adult fare takes over the University District this year. Local talent like I Am The Mountain, Scenic Route To Alaska, and Windigo, will take to stage alongside Calgary’s Cirque de la Nuit, as well as touring giants like Goldfish and Beats Antique.

If you have a hankering for ‘90s to early ‘00s pop/rock/alternative hits (don’t we all), Rockin’ 4 Dollar$ is hosting a Big Shiny Tunes themed event September 14th. This may be your one and only shot to see Classic Action cover Blink-182, The Wells cover No Doubt, and If I Look Strong; You Look Strong cover Marilyn Manson. Probably. Well, almost definitely. You shouldn’t miss it either way.

And finally, Calgary’s week-long art, science and technology celebration, Beakerhead runs September 14th-18th and includes plenty of think-outside-the-box workshops, massive art installations, Extreme Boardgaming, Engineered Eats, and way more. This festival is one of the most unique offerings our fair city has and definitely a chance to learn something new! Close out festival season by making your brain a little bigger!
