Skylab is a monthly club night in Saskatoon held at Le Rendezvous in beautiful downtown Saskatoon on the first Saturday of each month. Styles range from House & Techno, to Bass music, Breaks, DnB and some dub as well. We mix it up with our styles and try to provide something for everyone. The nights focus on space and cosmology, the study of the universe. There will be many pictures of galaxies, nebula's, stars and many other photos from our great and ever-expanding universe. People like to wear galaxy leggings and space themed clothing. We have 2 projectors running full force! Proper! Psychedelic! Spacey! Have fun, be safe, and don't forget to look up.

YAP (Youth Anthology Project) will be holding its community fundraising event in order to raise funds for the printing of its anthology.

The event will host live music, live theatre, slam poetry performances, live visual artists creating pieces within a four hour period to be sold, culinary arts for our bake sale, a silent auction of prints of visual art that will be included in the anthology, a raffle of prizes generously donated by local buisnesses, and the sale of YAP merchandise and advanced book order forms for the purchase of the anthology.
