Trying to channel your inner Duke Silver this weekend? Well then, sneak down to Granville Island for Winter Jazz, a free jazz festival going on over the next few days. Put on by the Coastal Jazz Festival, Winter Jazz is the kind of weekend reset button you didn’t know you needed.

Things kick off tomorrow with Lydia Hol and her band. But, you’ll have ample opportunity to check out music throughout the weekend, since a whopping 8 different artists are scheduled to play.

In order to attend a concert, all you have to do is RSVP! And, as an added bonus, doing so will automatically enter you into a draw for two tickets to the highly anticipated Hiromi concert as part of Coastal Jazz Fest this summer. So, by merely attending a free concert you could win tickets to another one? That’s a nice ride.

Even if RSVP capacity is hit for a show (like Lydia’s), Winter Jazz is still reserving a limited number of seats for walk-ups. You might have to hang out in line before doors open, but that’s not such a bad trade off.

Go check out this music fest this weekend folks! You’ll be glad that you did.

When: Friday, February 21 to Sunday, February 23
