Danaye's Daily Dose for Friday, June 11th

Calgary Pride

The province has moved up the eligibility for second doses. Those who got their first dose in April can now book their next dose and have definitely been jumping on that! A TON of people signed up for a second dose and when the Telus convention centre announced they would open for second doses, it got pretty busy there last night after being pretty quiet the last couple of days.

As we head into our first weekend of Stage 2, you’ll be able to check out a movie or go out for dinner and drinks with friends. Some major Calgary attractions are celebrating their re-openings this week with Calaway Park sold out for their first weekend back in operation and the zoo announcing that their indoor habitats are able to open back up as well! Meaning we can finally go see the penguins again!

The virtual Pride Parade will happen on September fifth. In a statement, the organization said “We don’t pivot, we sashay!” AMAZING.

Lorde has released her first new song in four years! Check out Solar Power!

The video is giving us ALL the beachy summer vibes! The song and upcoming album has been produced and co-written by Jack Antonoff, who produced her last album and of course has done a ton of work with Taylor Swift. In a newsletter sent out to fans, she wrote “There’s someone I want you to meet. Her feet are bare at all times. She’s sexy, playful, feral, and free. She’s a modern girl in a deadstock bikini, in touch with her past and her future, vibrating at the highest level when summer comes around. Her skin is glowing, her lovers are many. I’m completely obsessed with her, and soon you will be too. It’s my divine pleasure to be introducing you, at long last, to my third studio album, SOLAR POWER.” No release date for the album just yet.
