September 7, 2016 by Adam Marsh, student editor

Sunday, September 11
Check out your dream home
Want to tour the house you’ve been picturing in your head since forever? Check out the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria’s Art Gallery House Tour 2016, where you can wander around through six houses without being a creep. As a bonus, an artist will inhabit each home for the day. Oh, floral artists will be there, too. Trust me, your mom wants to go. Tickets are $35; find info at aggv.ca/events.

Thursday, September 15 until Sunday, September 18
Rifflandia brings more music to town
Victoria’s biggest music festival, Rifflandia, has added even more musicians who want to party with you to kick off the school year this time around. Jurassic 5, Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires, Lee “Scratch” Perry, The Prettys, and many, many more are playing this year. Prices and locations vary. See rifflandia.com for more info. Rock on.

Friday, September 16 until Saturday, October 22
Minimal visuals, maximum enjoyment
Why Can’t Minimal runs during September and October at Open Space. The exhibit explores the lighter and more humorous side of minimalism, a style of art that is known for being pretty intensely straight-faced. Admission is by donation; see openspace.ca for info.

Saturday, September 17
Sing with a night of opera
Conductor Alexander Weimann and Grammy-award winning soprano Amanda Forsythe will be at Christ Church Cathedral on September 17, performing music composed by Handel. Brush up on your knowledge of music from the old days, because this isn’t your typical Friday-night club music. Oh, wait, this is on a Saturday. Scrap that. See earlymusicsocietyoftheislands.ca for more info (bonus points if you can type six words in a URL without making a mistake the first time).

Tuesday, September 20
Spend a Tuesday night in the air
Airbourne is coming back to Victoria after blowing the socks off Royal Athletic Park during Rifflandia 2014. This time, they’re going to be rocking Sugar downtown, and odds are you won’t need any extra of that to enjoy yourself. Sugar. You won’t need extra sugar. Forget it. Advance tickets are $25, and they’re available at Lyle’s Place or ticketfly.com.
