The sunny weather is apparently on its way, so wait out the gloom with a few of these great events, happening in Vancouver tonight.

Take a peak at our Vancouver Events Calendar for more.

Arabian Nights Volume 1 – The Restless One

  • What: Presented as part of the Vancouver International Film Festival, The Restless One is the first part of director Miguel Gomes’ six hour epic, which draws its inspiration from the legendary tales of Scheherazade. This isn’t some Prince of Thieves thing, this is the real deal.
  • Where: Vancity Theatre – 1181 Seymour Street, Vancouver
  • When: Friday, September 25; 10 p.m

Jay Brown at Yuk Yuk’s

  • What: According to his bio, Jay first did stand-up as a child at a resort in Jamaica. With that kind of dedication from such a young age, it’s not wonder Jay’s now a full-time touring headliner. Grab your tickets now. You won’t regret it.
  • Where: Yuk Yuk’s – 2837 Cambie Street, Vancouver
  • When: Friday, September 25; 8 p.m.

Theatre Sports


  • What: Everyone knows it – the worst part about theatre is that there just isn’t enough competition. At least there wasn’t until Theatre Sports rolled around. Get your fill: live performance, with the keen edge of fly-by-night action. All the sports, none of the running.
  • Where: 1502 Duranleau Street, Vancouver
  • When: Friday, September 25; 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

UBC Changemaker Showcase


  • What: The UBC Changemaker Showcase showcases UBC students looking to make changes, which I imagine in abundantly clear from the title. Either way, some of the school’s best and brightest will be showcasing their ideas for social, political, economic, and environmental change, attending talks with the biggest in the industry. Keep your eyes open; these people will be calling the shots soon.
  • Where: UBC – 
  • When: Friday, September 25; 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Paul Brandt and Dean Brody


  • What: Who order these hot, fresh country jams? Anybody? Okay, well if none of ya’ll want a nice, greasy order of the youngest and hottest musicians in the biz, I’m just gonna throw it out. If you do, Paul Brandt and Dean Brody are on their Road Trip tour, and they’re ready to throw down. Throw down? Do people still say that? Eh.
  • Where: Abbotsford Centre – 33800 King Road, Abbotsford
  • When: Friday, September 25; 7 p.m
