SHOW­TIME IN THE CAP­I­TAL

Where Ottawa - - WHERE / WHAT / WHEN -

Boy­hood

Nov. 2 Boy­hood’s pop rock is steeped in nos­tal­gia. The brain­child of Ot­tawa’s own Caylie Runci­man, her band’s song­book dances crazily be­tween catchy gui­tar riffs and heart-pump­ing synth tracks through themes of love, loss, and in­tro­spec­tion. Na­tional Arts Cen­tre, 1 El­gin St., nac-cna.ca

Jack White

Nov. 9 Con­sid­ered one of the great­est gui­tarists of all time, blues­man Jack White is tour­ing his third solo record Board­ing House

Reach. The former White Stripes front­man melds his bluesy folk rock and po­etic lyrics with elec­tron­ica and hip hop beats. TD Place, 1015 Bank St., td­place.ca

Rus­sell Peters

Nov. 18 Bramp­ton-bred stand-up co­me­dian Rus­sell Peters com­pletes the Cana­dian leg of his ir­rev­er­ent

De­ported World Tour in Ot­tawa. One of the high­est-paid and most suc­cess­ful work­ing co­me­di­ans to­day, Peters is a mas­ter of ac­cents and a wicked ob­ser­va­tional hu­mourist who keeps push­ing the lim­its of de­cency. Cana­dian Tire Cen­tre, 1000 Pal­la­dium Dr., cana­di­antire­cen­tre.com

Goblin per­forms Sus­piria

Nov. 21 Ital­ian prog-rock band Goblin takes over Mav­er­icks with a spooky two-set con­cert. Dur­ing a seated screen­ing of Dario Ar­gento’s 1977 hor­ror movie

Sus­piria, Goblin will play their orig­i­nal sound­track to the cult flick, and fol­low up with a live set that pulls from their 40-yearold cat­a­logue. Mav­er­icks,

221 Rideau St., mav­er­icks­bar.com

Shad

Nov. 22 Only a few years to go and Shadrach Ka­bango will be con­sid­ered an old guard of Cana­dian hip hop. The Lon­don rap­per’s lat­est, A Short Story

About a War, is a ral­ly­ing cry for san­ity in dif­fi­cult times. His lyrics are ce­mented in foot­tap­ping beats and elec­tronic dance pro­duc­tion. The 27 Club, 27 York St.

Tanika Charles

Nov. 23 A steadily ris­ing star in the Cana­dian soul scene, Tanika Charles is a pow­er­ful singer and song­writer. Her 2016 Po­laris Prize long-listed Soul Run was a per­sonal prom­ise to live on her own terms, made catchy with an in­fec­tious pop groove that feels so good. Na­tional Arts Cen­tre, 1 El­gin St., nac-cna.ca

Lisa Leblanc

Dec. 7 Aca­dian folk hero­ine Lisa Leblanc has mas­tered three things that make her a must-see: heart­felt song­writ­ing, bilin­gual­ism, and banjo rock. A charm­ing per­former and vir­tu­osic banjo player, she doesn’t just kill it — she to­tally slays. The 27 Club, 27 York St.

The Ca­role King Mu­si­cal

Jan. 1-6 Easy-lis­ten­ing pop roy­alty Ca­role King is one of the most suc­cess­ful solo per­form­ers in his­tory. Her beloved songs and heart­warm­ing rise to fame are brought to the big stage in a Broad­way mu­si­cal that chron­i­cles how she and her first hus­band, Gerry Gof­fin, quit their day jobs to take over the pop charts. Na­tional Arts Cen­tre, 1 El­gin St., nac-cna.ca

Harry Pot­ter and the Philoso­pher’s Stone in Con­cert

Jan. 25-26 The first Harry Pot­ter movie from 2001 brought the magic of the books to life, and the score quickly be­came as iconic as the char­ac­ters. The NAC Orches­tra will per­form the en­tire sound­track while the film plays si­mul­ta­ne­ously on a 12-me­tre, high-def­i­ni­tion screen. This might just beat see­ing it the first time. Cana­dian Tire Cen­tre, 1000 Pal­la­dium Dr., cana­di­antire­cen­tre.com
