American indie-rock band, The Dodos, will be taking the stage at Maverick’s Bar this Wednesday, September 25. Hailing from San Francisco, the duo consisting of Meric Long and Logan Kroeber are currently in the midst of their cross-Canada tour, promoting their fifth full-length album, Carrier. They’re a band on the rise (they appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman earlier this month), so see them in an intimate venue before they’re selling out stadiums! Maverick’s Bar, 221 Rideau Street. www.mavericksbar.com
Have you ever wanted to explore backstage at the NAC? View more art? Or how about just have more cultural experiences in general?

A Canada-wide event to celebrate arts and culture throughout the country, “Culture Days” runs from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Take part in a wide array of activities — from yarn-bombing to theatre and dance workshops.
