Week + End = Weekend.

It’s the weekend already and we have a fun line-up of things to do this weekend starting with Friday.

Friday 20th June

The Count of Monte Christo

“What would you not have accomplished if you had been free?”” “”Possibly nothing at all; the overflow of my brain would probably, in a state of freedom, have evaporated in a thousand follies; misfortune is needed to bring to light the treasures of the human intellect. Compression is needed to explode gunpowder. Captivity has brought my mental faculties to a focus; and you are well aware that from the collision of clouds electricity is produced — from electricity, lightning, from lightning, illumination.”
― Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

Bishop’s College Auditorium No. 15, Boyd Place, Colombo 03, Colombo, Sri Lanka.

 

Fête de la Musique

Maurice Fleuret discovered in a 1982 study on the cultural habits of the French that in five million people, one child out of two played a musical instrument and he began to dream of a way to bring people out on the streets.

Park Street Mews 50/1 Park Street, Colombo 2.

Saturday 21st June

Blood Money

Womanizer Mike Mason and his wife Liz were involved in a hit and run accident in which a young teenage girl Carol Mitchell was killed. They believed they have got away with it until seven years later they receive a call from someone claiming to be the dead girl.

Lionel Wendt 18 Guildford Crescent, Colombo 7


SCATCAT

A night of rap, hip hop and live looping beatboxing and a kaleidoscopic grooves.

Listen to Larry T Hill http://quietbackroad.tumblr.com/audio Larry T Hill isn’t all about the music. With a striking solo performance, Larry T Hill crafts cheeky musical tales using just voice and a looping pedal. He records layer upon layer of his voice live on stage, creating elaborate yet fun musical pieces which you might expect to hear from a small band.

Charcoal Gallery Cafe 75 Hotel Road, Mount Lavinia.

Go Skateboarding Day

When I was a kid I stole my bro’s skateboard and that didn’t go down well. In my first attempt I broke my skull like trying to skateboard (tiny exaggeration) and then I got a lot of preaching about how stealing your brother’s stuff is a very bad thing.

Rajakeeya Mawatha, Colombo 7.

Sunday 22nd June

Bel Plaine In Galle

Bel Plaine will be in Galle playing at the Pedlars Inn. They were awarded the Paris Young talent Prize by the city of Paris in 2013.

61, Pedlar St, Galle Fort, Galle.

Muses Of The String Quartet

Goethe Hall 39 Gregory Road Colombo 7.

Enemy

If you are in Galle for the Bel Plaine concert you could also make a weekend out of Galle and hop over to the Medical Faculty Auditorium at Karapitiya on Sunday. For nothing to do with medicine but everything to do with the Enemy.

Medical Faculty Auditorium, Karapitiya.

And here’s just the song to put you in the right mood for the weekend http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-GLuydiMe4
