Radar: Nick Carter, Iceland stories, Pioneer and Bad Fever, Hollywoodland, Mark Munroe and Paris Black

MUSIC | Nick Carter at Revival
Nick Carter plays an intimate acoustic show at Revival tonight. This former Backstreet Boy rose to fame while only 12 years old with the boy band supergroup, traveling the world for over a decade. He came into his own with his solo album, "Now Or Never" in 2007, which charted nicely, as did its single "Help Me". This will be a rare and special show for Carter's TO fans.
Revival (783 College Street) 6PM

CULTURE | Spellbound by Iceland: Author W.D. Valgardson and Storyteller Carol McGirr
Two masters of the "tale" come together this evening to take you on a journey! W. D. Valgardson, is the author of "What the Bear Said: Skald Tales from New Iceland", and Carol McGirr is well-known in Canadian storytelling circles as a purveyor of authentic and historic tales. They will both share stories of what the Canadian experience was like for Icelandic settlers, as well as "old legends from the land of mists and volcanoes".
Lillian H. Smith Library (239 College Street) 6:30PM FREE

FILM | Free Favourites at Four presents "Waban-Aki: People from Where the Sun Rises"
Today's Feature in the "Free Favourites at Four" series is "Waban-Aki: People from Where the Sun Rises" - a chronicle of the Abenaki folks of Odenak, as told by two women. One of the women is Alanis Obomsawin, the film's director, and a well-known filmmaker who has produced upwards of 30 documentaries concerning Aboriginal people. This is Obomsawin's return to her roots, as she is of Abenaki decent herself, and this adds an extra dimension to her telling of their story.
