Pick of the Day: The Nylons

With the different designations that the Regina Symphony Orchestra has for its various concerts, this is classed as a Special Concert. Under guest conductor Charles Cozens the RSO is performing with the famed Canadian a cappella group The Nylons (pictured).

The concert is at Conexus Arts Centre and begins at 8 p.m. For ticket info call 586-9555. To close, here’s video for the Nylons performing “Stepping Stone

Also on tonight, the Regina Musical Club is presenting Martha Guth (soprano) and Tyler Duncan (baritone) with Erika Switzer (piano). The concert is at Riddell Centre, University of Regina and begins at 7:30 p.m. Adult tickets are $20, while for Seniors/Students they’re $15.

If your taste runs more to rock ‘n’ roll, there’s a great triple bill of local talent tonight at the Distrikt featuring Bright Black, Hot Blood Bombers and Molten Lava. Tix are $7 adv., $10 door.

Finally, tonight at Neutral Ground (1822 Scarth) there’s an opening reception for LoopLoop — an experimental video by Montreal artist Patrick Bergeron that  was inspired by a trip he took to south-east Asia. The reception starts at 8 p.m., and the show runs until Feb. 26.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
