You gotta see
SKOOKUM As you might have heard, there’s a somewhat highprofile multiday music festival called SKOOKUM (featuring Mother Mother, above) going on in the city this weekend (September 7 to 9). But the fun doesn’t stop at 11 each night, when Arkells, Florence + the Machine, and the Killers finish their headlining sets. SKOOKUM After Dark will turn the spotlight on the clubs of downtown Vancouver, with homegrown acts like Hotel Mira, Hey Ocean, the Funk Hunters, and the Matinee taking to stages of rooms like the Rickshaw, the Railway Club, and the Imperial. All shows are available through addon single-purchase tickets; go to skookumfestival.com/ for more info. And remember that you can sleep when you’re dead.
