The Denim Daddies: According to their easygoing bio, “These five good ol’ boys who now reside in Edmonton, are finding ways to satisfy the tastes of both purists and newbies of the country genre, burning up every stage they grace with outlaw-inspired alt-country that parties as hard as they do. With tunes about hoedowns gone right, hootenannies gone wrong, and the pain in your heart after hearing a Luke Bryan song, they’re doing it on their own terms. Several old guys once told them that their sound was reminiscent of The Flying Burrito Brothers. A guy with a mullet said they sounded like Steve Earle.” All these things feel true, so get down and grab a brew!

Details: 4 p.m. at Empress Ale House (9912 82 Ave.), no cover

Vignettes Chef Series with chef Nick Crudo: This well-known Edmonton chef (Cafe Amore, Pasta Amore and Black Pearl) invites the culinary curious to get hands on while he prepares a feast inside the art and design madness of the Vignettes Design Festival’s private kitchen. Diners will learn Crudo’s tips and tricks all while enjoying an adult beverage and surrounded by paintings, sculpture and installations created by Edmonton design teams. Yum yum, a feast for the eyes and, you know, stomach.
