Dispatch

If anything can be a play, as Halifax indie theatre continues to prove, why not a walking tour? Here, two of the city's most noteworthy indie playmakers (Annie Valentina and Isa Grant) do their thing—this time, sending you out to explore the harbour city you think you know with text message missives. Part of the Halifax Fringe Festival, it takes under two hours to complete.
10am-4pm; to Oct 4, tickethalifax.ca for details, $5/PWYC

Drunk Mean Girls livestream

Yes, your chance to sit in The Carleton for this drunk read-through of the GOAT of teen movies might have passed (it's no surprise the event sold out lightning-fast!)—but all hope is not lost: Montreal's Talking Dog Productions will also be livestreaming its Halifax event. So Fetch!
Facebook Live, 7pm

Alexander Keith's 225th birthday livestream

No, you can't get absolutely shitfaced at The Lower Deck to celebrate Sir Alexander this year, but that doesn't mean you have to miss out on every Ontario transplant's favourite Halifax party: A livestream of the suds-founder's fete will be held via Facebook, where you can watch performances by Matt Mays and Lower Deck mainstay Signal Hill.

À tire-d'aile

Studio 21's latest art show sees gallery stalwart Jean-François Provost exploring the beauty of transformation as he delivers a set of colourful canvases. A departure from his previous, more monochrome work, the new paintings add a vibrant layer to the artist's continued study of formalist subject matter. Get lost in planes of baby blue and beige.
Studio 21 Fine Art, 5431 Doyle Street, to Oct 14
