LikE Me AJA Louden art show: One of Edmonton’s kindest art rebels, AJA Louden is both master of the spraypaint free wall and community mentor, always eager to encourage our youth to put their hearts and souls into positive creativity. Here’s what he has to say about this event, with its special guest, Piney P: “I’m excited to announce my first solo art show in a long time! I’ll be showing almost entirely new work, almost all of it made this month. I’ll be painting portraits of several of my peers — people who are artists like me. My son,” haha, “Piney P will also have some work showing — I’d be honoured if you made the time to come by and say hi!” More than an art show, Mercy Funk is playing at 8:30 p.m. after Louden’s artist talk at 8 p.m., so bring your least formal, most supportive dancing shoes.

Details: 7 p.m. at The Aviary (9314 111 Ave.), $10 at yeglive.ca, $15 at the door

 

Marriage Story (2019): Francis Ha director Noah Baumbach directs this much-lauded film which with sensitivity and savvy follows the breakup of a marriage but a family staying together. The film stars Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver — with Laura Dern, Alan Alda and Ray Liotta on the sidelines. Driver, Johansson and Dern were all cast before the script was finished, and collaborated on the writing.

Details: 6:45 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. at Princess Theatre (10337 82 Ave.), $11 at the wicket

 

Coyote Comedy presents Word: Coyote Comedy is a 50-minute, long-form improv show with short little scenes throughout. How it works: “We get a suggestion (or two) from the audience and then we cut loose. There are three funny performers who will get themselves into all sorts of trouble and then do their best to extricate themselves from the situational hells they have created. It’s loose, it’s free form, and it’s probably going to be out of control for good stretches every episode.” This week it’s Cathleen Rootsaert, Peter Brown, Tom Edwards and Cathy Derach. This is classic Theatresports action going back to its tasty essentials.

Coyote Comedy presents Word, Thursday at Grindstone. supplied

Details: 7 p.m. at Grindstone Theatre (10019 82 Ave.), $12 at grindstonetheatre.ca
