Rejected Sled artists do-it-themselves, while Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra pops off at Heritage Park.

The DIY festival gathers acts—some rejected by Sled Island, some not—for an all-ages get-together inspired by a 19th-century French art exhibition. Performers include No More Moments, Durell Smith, and Mos Fett. Friday at Tubby Dog, 1022 17th Ave. S.W., 8 p.m.; Saturday at Knox United Church, 506 4th St. S.W., 2:30 p.m.; and at The Chvrch, 1830 16th St. S.W., 7:30 p.m. $5 – $10.

The JazzYYC Summer Jazz Festival wraps up with a musical stroll through Inglewood. Catch acts like the Colleen Allen Quintet at The Hose and Hound (4-6 p.m.). Throughout Inglewood. Noon to 6 p.m. Free.

At Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall, U of C. 2:30 p.m. $15 – $20.; at River Park Church, 3818 14A St. S.W. 7 p.m. $21 – $28.
