The former bass player of one of the 1980s most popular indie bands, The Smiths is making his Calgary DJ debut this Sunday at one of Calgary’s best rock haunts, The Republik.
Get a taste of what Andy Rourke is listening to these days via his NYC radio show Jetlag (listen live here) and get your dancing shoes ready for a night on the floor as he spins live along with several local deejays.
Just leave the legwarmers at home this time. —Kait Kucy

A dimly lit lounge with an underground-club feel isn’t a novel concept, but throw in a trio of industry veterans, a weekly lineup of well-known DJs, and a menu of Japanese cuisine, and you’ve got a toast-worthy plan.
Located in the downstairs of the Devenish building, Concept Bar and Lounge is the newest incarnation of the historic space with its exposed brick walls, dark wood accents and long bar.
Stop-in for a post-work drink and sushi (provided by adjoining restaurant Fujiyama) and stay for the monthly art show by Calgary artists (a canvas of a gun-toting Kate Moss is currently up) and DJ Rice’s Thursday night set.
We’re full of bright ideas.
