EDMONTON – Whoever says there’s nothing to do in Edmonton clearly hasn’t made an effort to explore it’s quirky nooks and crannies. Read on for a quick guide of events to quell your cabin fever this month…

The Mercury Room is hosting bedside’s EP release Friday, Jan. 5 with Chef and Soft Violence. Dark rock, indie and jazzy-psych fuse for this release party. Tickets available at the door.

Might as well kick off the new year with a loud doom metal show at the Tekarra album release party at Bohemia Jan. 6 with other thundering bands like Languid, Zebra Pulse (chaotic-free-form-synth-punk) and Paroxysm.

Tuesday, Jan. 9 at Metro Cinema the Amplify Her: Edmonton Purple Carpet Premiere showcases and explores the rise of female artists in the electronic music scene. Amplify Her is a graphic novel, film and animated motion comic series that looks at the lives of seven women who are making waves within another male dominated scene. Advance tickets are recommended via the metro cinema website. 

Local LGBTQ fave event Fruit Loop is back at Denizen Hall for an evening of dancing, drag, burlesque and niceties. With a midnight dance off, prizes and a silent auction, this event always donates a portion of proceeds to local LGBTQ programs and initiatives. Line ups tend to happen, so arriving at the door at 8 pm with $10 in your hand is an excellent plan! 

The 11th annual Deep Freeze: Byzantine Winter Festival takes place January 13th and 14th along four closed blocks along 118 Ave. between 90th and 95th St. The free, family-friendly festival uses visual art, music, winter games and more to create a multi-cultural celebratory winter experience. Did we mention it’s free? 

Drone and Words III is back Thursday, Jan. 18 at the Sewing Machine Factory. Doors are at 7pm for an evening to showcase experimental/drone music with spoken word. Often the performances are collaborative between the musician and the poet. This series is co-curated by Tab CA at the SMF and Durrell Smith of bands like Daydreaming and Mahria.

Space Classic are doing a CD release Jan. 20 at the Mercury Room with Yes Nice and Upper Lakes. This evening of experimental indie kicks off at 8pm and is 18+. 

The Cinema of Psychedelia screenings continue at Metro Cinema Jan. 20th with Altered States featuring a live performance by ambient experimental duo Private Investigators at 9pm.
