Britainy Robinson gives you options for your weekend

Regina & Area

Smokey Show

He's a Motown legend and he's still going strong.

Smokey Robinson started his music career while he was still in high school and 5 decades later, he's still on tour.

Hits like' Tears of a Clown' and 'Ooo Baby Baby' put Robinson at the top of the charts and also earned him a spot in the

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

You can see him tonight at Casino Regina. 

This is a rescheduled show if you have tickets from the June show, you need to cancel them at the Box Office and purchase new tickets.

Home Spun

If it's molded with your hands or created from scratch, chances are it's at Wintergreen.

This is the largest market staged by the Saskatchewan Craft Council. 

It's a long standing tradition for more than 80 craft and visual artists to come together and celebrate their work and maybe sell a piece or two.

There will also be live music and Christmas carolling to get you in the shopping mood.

The Wintergreen Fine Craft Market is at the Conexus Arts Centre Friday to Sunday.

Helpful hint: go to the website for a coupon or two and directions

Country Strong

She's a YouTube sensation and a young lady that's here to stay.

She's got a brand new album coming out called "Light Up The Night" and is out promoting it right now.

If the first single "Good Lovin" is any indication, Moskaluke is set to blow the roof off the Whisky Saloon this weekend.

You can see Jess Moskaluke Friday and Saturday night.

Saskatoon & Region

On Pointe

The classic dance of a little girl and her doll is being brought to the stage.

This time, with a little Russian flair.

The Moscow Ballet is celebrating its 20th anniversary tour with this fan favourite.

It's a childhood favourite combined with a score that is instantly recognizable.

This is the perfect show for the whole family it's on the stage in Saskatoon at TCU Place on Sunday night.

Then the troupe moves to Regina for a Monday show at the Conexus Arts Centre.

Powerful Pitch

It's all about the sale in the latest theatre effort from Live Five Theatre Collective.

'Warriors' is a satire that follows the story of two ad-men hired to create the perfect slogan for the Canadian Armed Forces.

This is a story about the business of war.

It's fast paced and has the audience questioning their own ethics.

You can see 'Warriors' this weekend and next at the Refinery.

Smart Beats

It's a blend of old school melodies, hip hop sensibilities and stand up comedy.

Josh Martinez has performed with acts like Macklemore and Classified and he has people grooving right across the country.

Songs like 'Ritalin Future Sounds' will have you asking, "Did I just hear that right?" 

It won't matter because you'll be swept away by the song.

Martinez is playing Louis' Pub Saturday night.
