What: Indie electronic pop duo Majical Cloudz comes to the Cobalt Hotel tonight. Forming in 2010, the team has been plying their trade across North America, collaborating with Grammy winners and playing sold out shows for screaming fans. If you like electronic music, you’d be dumb not to see these guys.
Where: Imperial – 917 Main Street, Vancouver
When: Friday, January 22; Doors 7 p.m. / Show 7:30 p.m.
What: A dance party celebrating everything awesome and awful about the 90s. Aqua, Ace of Bass, House of Pain – it was a decade as glorious as it was super embarrassing to remember. Relive that embarrassment, for one night only. You won’t regret it.
Where: Astoria Pub – 769 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
What: Do you like motorcycles? Do you live in Vancouver? Than have we got a show for you. The Vancouver Motorcycle show has all the newest makes and models from top manufacturers, vintage bike displays, tips from the experts, and much, much more.
What: Noam Chomsky exposes the failures of a system that has spent the last 50 years adhering to the whims of corporations. They own everything you love, and in a lot of ways they own you, too. Heavy stuff, but important, even if you don’t live in America.
Where: Vancity Theatre – 1181 Seymour Street, Vancouver
What: Late B.C. painter Peter Aspell was part of a group of Vancouver painters to rise to prominence following the war. Fascinated by abstraction, Aspell eschewed the techniques of his colleagues, focusing on figuration over landscapes. If you understand even a little bit of that, you’ll love this exhibit at the Richmond Art Gallery, exploring Aspell’s work.
Where: Richmond Art Gallery – 7700 Minoru Gate, Richmond
When: Friday, January 22 to Sunday, April 3
