Hamilton street fest bulges with bands & food trucks

Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 15, 2014

SupercrawlFour days of music, art installations, vendors, and food trucks galore swarmed James Street North in Hamilton this past weekend for Supercrawl 2014. Steeltown music fans packed in to see Charles Bradley, Antibalas, Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens, The Arkells and many more on stage, while festival-goers and art-lovers were treated to circus performances, break dancing, large scale installations, and of course handmade goodies, craft beer, and more food truck eats than any one person could conquer alone.

Here are 40 of our favourite memories from The Hammer at Supercrawl 2014.

Free events in Toronto: September 15-21, 2014

Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 14, 2014

free events torontoFree events in Toronto this week are dominated by the arts, as opposed to free events to have your accounting done or your bathroom renovated - so it's another ordinary week in the great cultural bastion of the Ford dynasty.

We the broke (not accountants) and filthy (faulty bathroom pipes) owe a lot to the Manifesto Fest this week, back for another year of art, dance, and a huge free hip hop show at Yonge-Dundas Square. Then there's a free bus ride to Blackwood Gallery in Mississauga, and free art openings at Design Exchange, Ryerson Image Centre, and more. Oh, and Unlovable plans to serve free cake on Wednesday.

Here's how to live like you've been granted license for the ingestion of cake in Toronto this week.

Twitter responds to Ford campaign switch-up

Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 12, 2014

Ford TwitterBreaking: Toronto lost $6.66 trillion worth of labour-hours today as citizens broke free from the shackles of employment to watch the newest landing of the chaos-nado at City Hall / permanently affixed to Rob Ford's drug-enhanced third eye. The Mayor announced he will relinquish his Skeksis-like grip on the crown of Crazy Town due to medical complications, choosing instead to run for city council. Before we were freed from Ford More Years, Doug Ford officially signed on to take Rob's place in the mayoral tragicomedy campaign.

As expected, Twitter (and everyone at your TTC stop) had something to say. Here's what you did instead of work today, Toronto.

Weekend events in Toronto: September 12-14, 2014

Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 11, 2014

weekend events TorontoWeekend events in Toronto is our guide to events happening this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Here's what's happening in Toronto this Sept 12-14, 2014.

Toronto Beer Week
Toronto Beer Week takes place at venues across the city, featuring tasting nights, homebrew competitions, tap takeovers and all the types of events that you see at Ontario Craft Beer Week but without the strict provincial focus. The idea is to celebrate craft beer in all its forms, so regardless of its origin, the beer on offer won't be coming from massive international brewers. Check out our day-by-day guide here. Sept 12-20. BJ

The Junction gets a new flea market

Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 11, 2014

Junction flea marketIf you miss the Junction Flea's cozy apparition in the (still) empty Dundas West lot and are, perhaps, unable to leave the Junction for Sterling Road's flea on a weekend (say, this weekend) in your post-brunch haze, don't fret it. The hood's newest concert venue Junction City Music Hall has something special in store for local shoppers of vintage goods, hand-mades, and baked treats - I'm hazarding a guess you won't find dice made of human teeth at this flea, but I'll stop by just to make sure.
