Onyx Creek: Jane Everett’s new show at Bugera-Matheson furthers her tiptoeing landscapes into the abstract. “The intersection of the natural and man-made worlds has been the central theme of my work for a number of years now,” she explains. “Living as I do in possibly the only region in the world where the most famous artist is a woman, I am following the path of Emily Carr interpreting the landscape in the context of the cars, roads and infrastructure projects that are threaded through the landscape of the Pacific Northwest.”

Transmission Dance Party: Well there’s a name for the times! But to be fair, Transmission is a well-honoured local party tradition stretching back a decade, and this outdoor event at Root 107 features two of Edmonton’s most dedicated DJs. DJ Blue Jay has been DJing Edmonton’s Alternative and Underground Night Club scene for over 20 years at pretty much every decent venue in town. Eddie LunchPail, meanwhile, has been spinning the underground hits for almost 30 years, including on numerous CJSR shows. Expect anything from disco to goth industrial to mesmerizing electro — and of course keep your distance, friends.

The all-ages, free Transmission Dance Party starts at 6 p.m. Saturday.

The Hidden Life of Trees (2021): It was, believe it or not, William Shatner who first recommended to me the book this documentary film is based on last time I interviewed him — and seeing as Edmonton Expo just cancelled (where he was due to headline), consider seeing this film in his honour. Trees, like everything, are far more complicated than we think — beings with feeling, for starters, which communicate with each other, far more than we humans sometimes accomplish. “When we protect nature, we protect ourselves.” ‘Nuff said.
