Music and social justice intersect with The Cardboard Crowns

Although the self-described “ska-rockers” have relocated to Toronto, three of the members are originally from Aylmer, Que. and consider Ottawa their hometown. The band has toured across Canada, but play primarily in eastern Ontario, and are thrilled to be returning to one of Ottawa’s most popular live music venues, as they have played the Ottawa scene extensively.

Looking for a magical night on campus? Try the opera

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, or The Magic Flute, first opened in 1791. On March 3, the University Ottawa’s Opera Company will be bringing the over 200-year-old opera to Tabaret Hall, so opera lovers can check it out without using a time machine, or even leaving campus.

Albums you should have listened to: The Monks • Bad Habits | EMI

The album never slows down from start to finish, and it’s perfect to dance along to or pick you up if you’re feeling down. Every song can make you laugh. It does everything a peppy pop song should do, just presented in a radically different way, and across an entire album instead of one four-minute track.

Generous showcases the dirty truths about politics

What happens when a politician orders a murder to slip by in a vote? Comedy! And if Healey was aiming for a comedy he certainly succeeded, with a cast of hilarious characters, rants against Canadian Tire, a quest to find Triscuits, a splendidly performed awkward post-sex scene, rants against twenty-somethings and excellent use of the word “fuckwit.”
