Considering it gets going on Thursday, I probably should have mentioned the Olio Festival earlier, but better late than never (plus, since My!Gay!Husband! is one of the brains behind it, you've probably heard about it). The fest runs Thursday-Sunday and features some of Vancouver's finest talent (plus a few touring acts) and takes over one neighbourhood a night on Thursday, Friday, Saturday (Gastown, Main St., Downtown, respectively).
Passes are $25 at Zulu, Scratch, Red Cat, and Beat Street or online.
