I hope you’re ready to listen, laugh and lunge out of your seat this weekend in the Glebe, because TD Place is a hotbed of events this weekend with music, comedy and a possible do-or-die playoff game on the slate.

It all starts Friday night with Columbus-based duo Twenty One Pilots, who bring their Blurryface tour to TD Place for a night of sonic sweetness. The band has been gaining popularity on its new record Blurryface, landing at No. 15 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart.

The show is nearly sold out, as TD Place is expecting about 4,000 fans Friday night. Click here for last-minute tickets.

Saturday could be a quiet day at the Arena at TD Place, unless the Ottawa 67s manage to steal a playoff win from the Ice Dogs in Niagara Thursday night. After a tough 2-1 home loss Wednesday night, the 67s are now down 3-1 in the best-of-seven series, meaning if they lose Friday night in Niagara, they are out. But if Nathan Todd and his 67s can edge the Ice Dogs, the series will return here Saturday night for an all-out battle to stay alive. If the 67s are able to tie the series up, Game 7 will take place on April 5 in Niagara.

But the action doesn’t stop there. The Glebe will be left in stitches after comedic superstar Bill Burr brings his edgy standup to TD Place Sunday night. Burr is no stranger to Canada’s capital, as he performed three sold out shows at the NAC in 2014 and was back last summer for a special show at Ottawa Bluesfest. Tickets range between $35.50 and $55.50. Click here for tickets.

Also, the Ottawa Farmers’ Winter Market is still on every Sunday inside the Aberdeen Pavilion where farmers, artisans and craft builders show off their wares inside the historic Aberdeen Pavilion. The market runs every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The winter market runs until April 24, when the outdoor Farmers’ Market returns.

And don’t forget that the City of Ottawa is running family roller skating nights at the Horticulture Building every Monday night through April, June, July and August. It’s a blast from the past with disco music, lights and of course, skating on four wheels. Click here for more information.

So grab your chuckles, your wheels and your devil hands, it’s going to be one wild weekend in the Glebe.
