5 things to do in Vancouver today: Friday, October 2

Dec 20 2017, 1:43 am

We’re one day in to the scariest month of the year, so I can imagine most of you have been consumed by some ravening spirit, or abducted by a sorcerer or something. On the off chance you haven’t, maybe check out some of what Vancouver has to offer? The demon holding the contract to your soul will appreciate it.

Check out the Vancouver Event’s Calendar for more.

Nardwuar’s Video Vault

  • What: Canada’s very own cartoon character, Nardwuar the Human Serviette, is putting on a look back at some of his favourite interviews over the years, showing some of his videos, and talking about UBC CiTR Radio. He’s a veritable Canadian historical figure, so get in on it. Doot doo!
  • Where: UBC CiTR Radio – 3500 – 6133 University Boulevard, Vancouver
  • When: Friday, October 2; 12 p.m.

Braids at Cobalt

  • What: Supporting the release of their newest album, Deep in the Iris, this Montreal-based experimental pop band will have you stomping your feet, shaking your butt, and scratching your head. Just the way experimental pop should be.
  • Where: Cobalt –
  • When: Friday, October 2; 9 p.m.

Potter’s House of Horrors

  • What: Nothing says “October is here” like a good old haunted house. This one is out in Surrey, but it’s well worth it. Spooky, weird, but still goofy enough that a steely-nerved youth could get in on the fun. As always with potentially child-scarring experiences: use your caution.
  • Where: Potter’s Farm & Nursery – 12530 72 Avenue, Surrey
  • When: Friday, October 2; 5 to 10 p.m.

Romeo + Juliet at Langara

  • What: The Bard’s classic tale about how a lack of communication can lead to poorly planned suicide. Langara presents their take on the timeless classic, setting it in 1965, with a set inspired by Andy Warhol’s infamous studio, The Factory. Sounds weird, but in the best way.
  • Where: Langara –
  • When: Friday, October 2; 8 p.m. (arrive early)

Monty Python: The Meaning of Live

  • What: Don’t get too excited: this isn’t the actual Pythons. It is, however, a spectacular documentary featuring one of the most beloved comedy troupes of all time, and rightful legends. It’s worth a watch. Just… try and keep all your quotes to yourself. We’ve all seen The Holy Grail.
  • Where: Vancouver Playhouse – 600 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
  • When: Friday, October 2; 4 p.m.
