Also don't miss the Eastern Breeze Film Fest, plus annual date-oriented celebrations May the 4th ("Star Wars Day") and Cinco De Mayo (May 5).
Here are my pics for the top events in Toronto this May.

Today in Toronto: The Space Lady, Canadian Film Day, GradEx 100, Sufjan Stevens, Spring Clothing Swap
The amazing Space Lady will return to Double Double to play psychedelic covers and touching originals - she was one of our top live acts of 2014, so don't miss her. You can celebrate Canadian Film Day around town, including at Rainbow Cinemas with a double bill of Pontypool and Enemy, and at Videofag with Videodrome.

No, this isn't another April Fools post, and it isn't a Toronto Humane Society campaign either. Chicken rental is just what it sounds like. The renting... of chickens.
If you, like me, are suspicious of anything popular and fun, pat yourself on the back. Tickets to the June 1st "Toronto Block Party 2015" at the Richmond Street club are $15. The updated Facebook event for the sucker-gathering of the summer reads, optimistically, "thousands expected."
The new pride rating (a category unto itself) from the Commission's customer satisfaction survey is 66%, a considerable drop from 73% in 2014 - now every third person who squishes in beside you is ashamed of Toronto's public transit system, instead of one in four.
