2019 Spring Gallery Walk: Seven, count ’em, seven galleries along 124 Street invite you to come see our vibrant, local commercial art ecosystem during the two-day annual spring Gallery Walk — starting Saturday and 10 a.m., Sunday at noon. This includes Bearclaw Gallery (10403 124 St.), Bugera Matheson Gallery (10335 124 St.), The Front Gallery (10402 124 St.), Scott Gallery (10411 124 St.), Lando Gallery (10310 124 St.), Peter Robertson Gallery (12323 104 Ave.) and West End Gallery (10337 124 St.). You could check out their websites, but the point is really to come out and see all their most shiny and compelling art on the walls and maybe find something you’ll be able to pass down through generations — no pressure, noncommittal browsing is appreciated, too!

The John Wort Hannam Band: In 2001 John Wort Hannam quit his teaching job and spent 10 months depleting his savings while he sat at his kitchen table, wearing a lucky hat, writing his first 10 songs. Those songs would become his first recording, Pocket Full Of Holes, released in 2003. Seventeen years later, the Alberta musician has released his seventh full-length recording, Acres Of Elbow Room, and has a few feathers in that lucky hat for his first six offerings including a Juno nomination. The latest Northern Lights Folk Club offering.

Details: 11:59 p.m. at Metro Cinema (8712 109 St.), $6 at metrocinema.org
