Three for the Weekend: Graffiti, jazz, torchlight

Take note – story published 7 years ago

Graffiti, jazz and walking around by torchlight--that's what we've found to entertain you on this weekend in Latvia. 

By the torchlight

November 11 marks Latvia's day of remembrance for the military, better known as 'Lāčplēša' day after the mythical hero Lāčplēsis.

Throughout the day torchlight processions and such-like events are held across the country, and you're very much welcome to join.

In the evening concerts - like this one in the Anglican church near River Daugava, or this one at the Rīga Latvian Society - are held across Rīga with a focus on Latvian music and songs about Latvia. 

What's that there on the wall?

A graffiti artist who goes by the nickname of Kiwie and is one of Latvia's few street art exports will open a personal exhibition on Friday at 8 p.m., at the Rīga Art Space.  

It's on Kungu st. 3 in Old Rīga and it's open every day except Monday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

The exhibition will be open until December 11. Entrance is free on Friday but regularly costs €5. But you can also see his work on the streets.

Saturday jazz

The acclaimed Julian Lage jazz trio is playing at the Dzintari concert hall in Jūrmala on Saturday at 7 p.m.

Tickets are still plentiful
