Bob Gruen rock ‘n’ roll photography exhibition

July 24-Aug. 25 | Pendulum Gallery, 885 West Georgia


Photographer Bob Gruen has been snapping portraits and candid photos of the leading rock ‘n’ roll stars for the last four decades. His work has graced the pages of almost every major music magazine as well as hanging in the National Portrait Gallery in London and MoMA in New York. This exhibition, curated by Liss Gallery founder Brian Liss, consists of a career retrospective of Gruen’s work ranging from this classic early photo of Kiss in suits (love the clogs, Gene) to more recent artists like Lady Gaga.

Uptown Live! Music Festival and Street Party

July 22, 12 p.m. | 6th Ave. and 6th Street, New Westminster


This annual event has grown to become a go-to for the entire Lower Mainland. With multiple stages hosting artists such as Daniel Wesley, Youngblood and Langley’s Servo (pictured), the mix is on established and up-and-coming acts with ties to the area whenever possible. There are bevvies in the Red Truck Beer Garden, and a host of food trucks as well as all kinds of interactive exhibits and art shows. Plus, it’s not that far away to D Roti Shak (808 12th St.) for spot-on dhalpourie, roti, doubles, and curries.
