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 skookum­fes­ti­ for more info. And re­mem­ber that you can sleep when you’re dead.
