Going back in time

Jump in your DeLorean, fire up that flux capacitor and go back in time – musically anyway.

Old Time Machine will be celebrating the release of its first album at the Back to the Yukon show at the Guild Hall on Saturday.

Old Time Machine is the latest collaboration between musical upstarts Ryan McNally and Kyle Cashen.

McNally brings a bit of the past to the mixture, with rock and blues stylings on guitar and vocals – a little like Marty McFly playing Johnny B Good.

And if McNally can be compared to McFly then that must make Cashen Doc Brown.

The show will be kicking off at 8 p.m. on Saturday at the Guild Hall.

Weeknights on the weekend

Soir de Semaine will be launching its second album this Saturday as well, celebrating with a performance at Tippler’s Pub.

The new album is has more rock, ska and reggae influences, infused with up-beat, positive lyrics.

Music starts at 10 p.m. Bring your dancin’ shoes.

Songbirds

The Warblers will be playing at the Westmark Lounge tonight for a live happy hour concert, from 6 to 9 p.m.

The group, featuring Kim Beggs and Natalie Edelson with special guest Vanessa Marshak, play originals and traditionals, sweet and savory favourites infused with an old-timey feel.

DINNER AND DANCE

Baila, baila, baila!

Speaking of dancing shoes, why not check out the Whitehorse Latin Fiesta, on Saturday.

The event will include Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Congo, Cumbia and Rueda de Casino served up by DJ Miguel.

The hips start shaking around 9 p.m. and won’t stop until 1 a.m. at Antoinette’s Restaurant.

There will be a $5 cover charge.

Electronic cocktails

Or, if Latin rhythms aren’t really your thing, why not check out the francophone centre’s Electro Dancing Night.

A $15 cover charge includes snacks and one free cocktail, not to mention a fun lounge atmosphere and a night of dancing.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to Yukon Council of Disability.

Foxy entertainment

Foxy’s Cabaret has a great line-up of shows for the weekend.

On Friday, Breo and DJKJ will be playing a few danceable sets.

And on Saturday Common Knowledge and CHS will be playing a fundraiser for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.

ART AND HISTORY

Strange things done

The Yukon has had a colourful past, filled with many interesting and nefarious characters.

And Jim Robb has made it his life’s work to document them.

Robb’s Colourful Five Per Cent exhibit is on at the MacBride Museum of Yukon History, showcasing a selection of his images, artifacts and stories.

Art of the landscape

Faro’s own Jay Hambleton has his first solo show at the Copper Moon Gallery.

Come check out Hambleton’s impressive take on the northern landscape.

The debut will be launched today, from 5 to 9 p.m. at the gallery and includes music by Brenda Lee.

DOGS

Best in show

The Yukon Kennel Club will be holding its 40th annual dog show this weekend.

The dog show will be held on the lower floor of the Mt. McIntyre Recreation Centre Friday through Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The public is invited to watch dogs compete for Best of Breed, Best of Group, and Best in Show, as well as Obedience and Rally.
