A look at what’s happening this August in Edmonton

Remembering the great Robin Williams

While tragic, the death of the comedic icon has brought mental illness into wider media discussion

Michael Vecchio, Gateway Writer

Robin Williams wasn’t simply a comedian or dramatic actor, he was an entertainer in every sense of the word, and it is precisely because of his uniqueness that we find ourselves in profound sorrow to learn of the death of a person who brought the world so much cheer.

Album Review: Buddy — Last call For The Quiet Life

In the seven years since their debut, the members of Buddy have been busy in the studio, hardly living quiet lives.

A walk with sound through Edmonton’s history

Fun around town for the last two weeks before school

As school approaches and the days become shorter, one may come to realize that they’ve completely wasted their summer working. You missed out on spontaneous sunset-watching and supermoon-gazing as you slaved away, scraping together enough nickels and dimes to pay for tuition in the upcoming year. Luckily for you, if you missed out on a cool vacation to Thailand or backpacking around Europe, we have complied some fun activities to indulge in that are right outside your door. So shake off your summertime sadness and get to making the most of your last few weeks of non-polar weather.

30th Annual Edmonton Streetfest spreads smiles across the Square

Brad Kennedy, Arts & Culture Editor

There’s a kind of cheerful magic to the Street Performers Festival that’s hard to find anywhere else: simple, sweet, and uplifting.

Last Month’s Future — July 2014

Brad Kennedy, Arts & Culture Editor

Things are heating up this summer, which is why it’s good news that scientists have discovered a massive reservoir of water beneath the Earth’s crust that could hold more liquid than all our oceans combined! Plus, laser-stimulated cellular regeneration, drug-carrying designer blood cells and the potential discovery of the human brain’s “off switch” all mean reading this month’s edition of Last Month’s Future might actually be good for your health.

Wickedly wonderful Broadway show bears a fresh young cast

Jennifer Robinson, Gateway Staff

Wicked is a glimpse at another side to the classic Wizard of Oz story, telling it from the perspective of The Wicked Witch of the West, Elphaba. In this tale she and Glinda the Good are friends, and it is through a series of misunderstandings and bad decisions that she becomes the villain we know her as. One intrepid Gateway reporter visited the set of the show in advance to get a peek of the play’s setup.

Freewill Shakespeare Festival brings classic comedy back to campus stage

Andrea Ross, Editor-in-Chief

“O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?”

Well, you won’t find him this year in Hawrelak Park, where Shakespeare’s beloved characters come to life each summer under the Heritage Amphitheatre.

The amphitheatre’s tent was damaged this winter, forcing the annual Freewill Shakespeare Festival to move indoors to the University of Alberta’s Myer Horowitz Theatre. Held annually at the end of June, the change in venue pushed the date into July — but changes to the date and location of the festival haven’t hindered the performance quality!

Album Review: The Black Keys, Turn Blue

Max Kelly, Max Kelly

While the Black Keys’ entire discography is enjoyable, Turn Blue is their first release that sounds truly authentic, and it’s easy to see how this could become a blueprint for many bands to emulate over the next decade.

Liquid Energy: Rockstar Review

08/27/2014

After many years of standing near the top of the market, Rockstar has developed various flavours to complement its original energy drink. In spite of these, it’s time to revisit the classic to determine whether it still stands up against its more eclectic brethren.
