Ten fiery-hot weekend picks

HIFF, hip hop and halva await.

The Aileen Meagher International Track Classic
Thrill to this year's edition of the longrunning—ha!—track and field event, which sees athletes from around the globe run and jump to glory at Saint Mary's Huskies Stadium.

Staying Underground feat. MAJE
Alfalfa Brown and Mistah Rapsey team up their killer remixes with OBEY Convention headliner MAJE for a night of fierce, flexing hip hop.

Bitter Rose
Thursday // Friday // Saturday // Sunday
Catherine Banks' intimate play follows Rose, a wife and mother who re-evaluates her life after reading the morning obituaries, as she tugs the loose threads of her seemingly-perfect world.

Sa-Roc The MC
Slaying rhymes from DC, MC Sa-Roc calls her sound "God Hop," melding golden-era hip hop with a conscious feel. If that's not enough for you to get your butt to Reflections for this show, maybe the fact she's rapped with the likes of Talib Kweli, Common and Jay Electronica will?

Mike Hoolboom retrospective: In This Body at HIFF
Saturday // Sunday
The Halifax Independent Filmmakers Festival is on now through Sunday, and these screenings are at the top of the must-see list. Hailed by HIFF as "one of the most prolific and influential experimental/avant-garde filmmakers of our time," director Mike Hoolboom presents a collection of his shorts that explore the human form.
