Social Intercourse: April 8

Pop-Up Shop
Fine Arts Building
Wednesday, Apr. 8 at 2 p.m. – 5 p.m.

By the end of the year, your dorm room and all of your school supplies look outdated and are way overdue for a makeover. Luckily, the University of Alberta Illustration Design class is putting on a pop-up shop to showcase the work they did over the past semester so you can own something from a graduating artist before they go off into the world and become famous. With everything from wall art to notebooks, you finally have the chance to guarantee that you’re the most hip person studying on the quiet floor of Rutherford during finals.

Motorbike James
w/ Rolla Olak and guests
Wunderbar (8120 101 Street)
Friday, Apr. 10 at 9 p.m.
$10 at the door

The last time Motorbike James performed a live set, every patron in the packed atrium of the Artery danced so hard that the structural integrity of the building proved to be sturdier than the new Groat Road Bridge. Guests are yet to be announced, but the psychedelic-country-rock gem Rolla Olak will open the night and get you loose enough to groove out to the eclectic styles of Motorbike James. Wunderbar’s capacity is less than the Artery’s, so be sure to get there early enough to guarantee that you can be one of the sweaty bodies in the crowd. You don’t want to be stuck outside for this one.

Last Day of Classes
Dinwoodie Lounge (SUB)
Friday, Apr. 10 at 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Do you long for the good old days of Week of Welcome, where you ditched Syllabus Day to sit in the beer gardens of Quad and listen to some rad bands and hot DJs? Relive those glorious moments on the last day of class, conveniently hosted in Dinwoodie Lounge in the off-chance that we get another Arctic blast to offset our dreams of Spring. With beer, live DJs, and some unnamed “live music”, it’s setting up to be an anti-Week of Welcome. It’s the ideal last hurrah before you burrow yourself in piles of notes until finals are over.

See A Live Owl
Wild Birds Unlimited (12204 107 Avenue)
Saturday, Apr. 11 at 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

In case the name of the event doesn’t give it away, See A Live Owl is your chance to see and pet a real, live owl, while learning about how cool owls are for the environment. Sure, it may be geared more towards children, but it’s not like owls aren’t just as cool when you’re in university. It’s like pet therapy, but more exotic. Wild Birds Unlimited is only a few minutes’ walk away from some of Edmonton’s great hangout spots like Iconoclast and 124 Street, so you can make a whole day out of your awesome bird-petting adventure. The real way to impress a date is to incorporate some owls into your coffee drinking plans.
