Fresh from his appearance at Just For Laughs in Montreal Craig Fay will be appearing in his very own show "Not Quite Quiet" at the LOT on Dec 13.
Show starts at 8:00
$10 at the door.
If you haven't seen him yet THIS is the show to catch. If you've seen him already THIS show will be more of what you love.
Craig Fay is a Toronto based stand up comedian who is quickly gaining a reputation for his crisp, intelligent humour. With a unique ability to make accessible topics smart, and smart topics accessible he is a hit with audiences of all backgrounds.
Craig recently performed at the world famous Montreal Just For Laughs Festival as part of the Homegrown Comic Competition which recognizes new Canadian talent. Previously he was named Toronto.com’s Funniest Torontonian at the Just For Laughs 42 Festival, in Toronto. He is also the recipient of the “Brian Linehan Comedy Writing and Performance Award” and was nominated for the “Tim Sims Encouragement Award” recognizing outstanding new comedic talent.
Craig has appeared on CBC Radio’s “Laugh Out Loud”, recently filmed a stand up special for iChannel’s new comedy series “No Kidding”, and has opened for Jimmy Pardo, Greg Proops and Myq Kaplan.
Of his performance with Myq Kaplan BlogTO wrote: “…[Craig] was firing on all cylinders, casually crushing with crowd work and progressively subversive material…It was one of those performances when you realize, ‘Oh, this guy is genuinely funny.’ You don’t see that everyday.”
And in the words of a recent audience member “You got some mad smart content yo!”
You can follow Craig on Twitter @CraigFayComedy and through his website craigfay.com

Mark your calendars and book the night off because we've got an amazing line up of music coming up at ROUND venue on Friday Dec. 13! From the soulful harmonies of CROOKED HOUSE ROAD to the beautiful tunes of MIRIAN KAY and the rockin' folk of BIRDS OF BELLWOODS you won't want to miss it.
Doors 8 pm

feat. Darren Eedens & Derek Gray

Step into my office! You've been working long and hard hours and we need to give you your monthly evaluation.
Cub Camp is back in December and we want you to get out your suit and tie.
DJ Aeryn Pfaff is joining SCOOTER as they dress to impress and show you their best.
A Bearded Boy will surely have on his most professional cock ring at the door.
The one night of the year we celebrate our roots, our passions and endless love of the bass drum.
Get schooled by:
-Guess which hardcore DJ is celebrating 20 (!?!?!?!) years behind the decks? He's also been known to wear a Decepticons tshirt every now and then. The dutchman himself....
!!! DEZTRO !!!
-Who's that guy from south of the border that's a tireless advocate of all things cheese and happy? Even people that can't stand the cheese love this guy! And ever seen this guy behind the decks? Two words - unbridled energy...
!!! DYNAMIC !!!
-This guy got into the hardstyle a more than a few years back and has been plugged in since. He's traveled far and wide to see his fave dj's and we love that he loves this splinter from the hardcore scene as much as we do. Anyone remember when hardstyle was just coming into its own sound? This guy does.
!!! DAMO !!!
-For those that like their sounds 'bwutal', this guy has been known to pick some of the crunchiest tunes for the dancefloor. And most of the time, he can't see two feet ahead!
!!! B7 !!!
Also, it's in a somewhat sad tone that we say goodbye to another Toronto venue - we've partied at Neutral so many times over the years that it's only fitting that we give it a fantastic blowout and make some memories rather than just mourn them!
Friday the 13th, let's go hard heads!!!!
Only $5! No excuses! And be sure to bring a friend!
19+ with ID.
No bull, no drama, all hardcore!!!
We'll be bringing tshirts and hoodies. If you'd like to pre-order something in a certain size, feel free to drop us a line and we'll be sure to bring 'em out. !!!!! Be proud of the 'core and display it with pride !!!!!

A MESSAGE FROM TORONTO GOTH HERITAGE
It's time to take our beloved Toronto Goth Heritage Project to the next level. I've been starting to compile new interviews, map new locations and delve beyond Queen St. W. in mapping our historic community space, places and faces.
Many of you asked during Nuit Blanche if I would consider returning to the decks to spin another night and in the interests of supporting the continuation of the project I've decided, along with my friend Jairus and a few others, to give it a go!
So if you would join us in support of the Toronto Goth Heritage Project at Nocturne on the very Goth-y date of Friday Dec. 13th, 2013 we'd be most delighted! (it's okay for Goths to be delighted)
Cover is $10 and proceeds will go directly to the continuation and maintenance of the Toronto Goth Heritage Project as well as help cover expenses associated with the event.

FRIDAY DEC 13 2013
Here we go again! We present to you the second instalment of a new music series showcasing local talent!
House Your Soul Vol. 2 presents:::
DJ/Producer Addy, is a veteran of the Canadian scene and has risen trough the ranks of Toronto's thriving underground. His sound is defined by originality, creativity, exceptional technique, universal appeal and an uncanny ability to read a crowd, thrusting every dance floor into a euphoric frenzy. A product of the 90’s rave movement and mentored by its founding fathers, Addy developed an innate talent through dedication, attention to detail and a willingness to experiment. As his notoriety grew over the years, Addy was propelled to the forefront of club culture, securing long standing residencies at top venues Including the (GUVERNMENT) and billed at events alongside major international artists. Demand is also on the rise for Addy on the global stage, where he has performed at events in major cities across North America and Europe including international festivals like EXIT, and an annual residency at BPM festival. Consistent impressive displays have resulted in numerous requests for return appearances and new opportunities. Addy's sets are distinct and iconic, characterized by intelligent programming, live mixing, seamless transitions and the frequent incorporation of 3 decks. A unique and progressive sound, fusing uplifting melodic and instrumental elements from classics and rare groove with subtle dark undertones layered over techy bass lines and rolling drums. When not travelling, Addy devotes much of his time to the studio, collaborating with top names and breakthrough artists in the music industry. His productions have caught the attention of major electronic label bosses and A&R reps with tracks and remixes signed to Mark Knight’s Toolroom Knights, Steve Lawler’s Global Underground compilation and John Acquaviva’s Definitive to name a few. His ‘Slavedriver’ remix was charted by Balance Promo and featured in a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. Respected by his peers and adored by his fans, Addy continues to grow as an influential figure in dance music and a dominating force behind the decks.

ONFF here. Sorry about not staying in touch. We're... bad at that.
But we're doing a thing with the thing!
By that I mean, a massive tour of the largest cities in Ontario. Here are the dates:
November 30 - Ottawa, ON - Raw Sugar Cafe w/ Seas
December 13 - Toronto, ON - Sneaky Dee's w/ The Love Machine, HIGHS
Okay okay, so one of the shows is already over. But I was technically right about the largest cities in Ontario.
Anyways, if we didn't care about anything before, we REALLY don't now because we have jobs (for the most part) and are kinda fat now (for the most part) and we have a new guy playin guitar but his name still starts with "Br" and he's great and maybe even more sweaty than Rajiv.
And as a bonus, it's Audio Blood's 5th anniversary! They stand as a shining example of hard work something something.
So uh, if you were ever a friend of ours or a member of Arietta it'd be really great to see you.

Winter is shitty. For most of us, this means trying desperately to pay credit card bills and not freeze our asses off while not getting enough shifts at work and (maybe) drinking too much. For loads of other people, it means not knowing where your next meal is coming from or how you're going to get your kids anything for (insert holiday celebration.) In the interest of attempting to do something decent for our Canadians who have more serious concerns than our meaningless ones, it's my pleasure to announce my First Annual Winter Revue!
This is CANNED GOOD based event. Please bring a non-perishable food item to help out the Toronto Daily Bread Food bank who spend every day fighting real hunger on our city's streets. They need more than a million pounds of food to get through this winter, so let's try to do our part.
The night starts at 9:30,
9:45: Open Market (with Matt Deacon and Graeme Gerussi)
10:30: David Felton & the Silent Pilots
12:15: Patrick Grant & the Flesh Vignettes

Take a trip to the Junction's top destination, the 3030 (located at 3030 Dundas St. West, naturally!), for the big 15th edition of the Rock-A-Billy Shake-up, and get ready to bop! Thrill to the twang of the electric guitar, driving bass rhythms, unhinged vocal antics, and the restless rockabilly beat with high-flyin' live sets by Toronto favourites The Swingin' Blackjacks, and Hamilton's sharp-dressed Teddy Boy crew The Diamond Drapes. DJs Rockin' Dave Faris and Lincoln Bee Kool spin festive rock 'n' billy platters to keep the dancefloor hoppin'. Join us for the final Rockhouse T.O. show of the year, and get the holiday started in top rockin' style. Come early, the place gets packed, and dig the big dancefloor, hip pinball machines, and cool taps!
Ho Ho Ho! Come hear the Christmas clash of vinyl as east meets west in an Xmas showdown of the best in MOD, SOUL, FUNK, SKA, and ROCK’n’ROLL.
For one night only the Seven Inch Samurai will do battle using 12-inch records in this Xmas Xtravaganza – The Twelve Inches of Christmas!
On this holiest of nights, 12 DJs will play 12 minutes each – all on 12-inch records!
One DJ alone will be victorious, and you get to decide!
Who will don the golden 12-inch? Will it be DJ Mistle-Tako, DJ King of Kings Magic Sparky, the Ginger Santa, Away of the Curl (in a Manger), DJ Su-Myrrh Kai Su-Myrrh or one of our 7 guest DJs?
Keep it vinyl, keep it sevens (and twelves!), and keep on DANCING!
For One Night Only! PWYC!

Never produced, barely rehearsed.
Who knows if these scripts make any sense.
Who knows if we'll make our schedules mesh for a proper rehearsal.
Two short pieces
performed by Shea Wojtus and Ash Catherwood
1 Goldfish Gaze: One monologue. Three styles of delivery. Can they keep it together? A battle of actors.
2 Andrew and Maddie: Andrew just wants to get outside. Maddie just wants to kill the first thing that comes through the door. A love story for all creatures.
One solo piece
Something about loneliness, lunar origins and a couple of arguably crazy ladies named Frances

THE WAGNER FILES
Opens December 13th
Carlton Cinemas - 20 Carlton St.
(Shows daily at 1:45 p.m. & 7:00 p.m. till December 20th)
A Documentary by Ralf Pleger
Few composers inspire such extremes of love and revulsion as Richard Wagner, and few classical music documentaries go the extremes of this astounding German-made feature, which includes stylized, modern-dress reenactments of key moments in Wagner’s tumultuous life and digital animated graphics alongside more traditional expert testimony from the likes of Simone Young (conductor and music director of the Hamburg State Opera), Philippe Jordan (conductor and music director of the Paris Opera), Katharina Wagner (great-grandchild of Richard Wagner and director of the Bayreuth Festival) and Laurence Dreyfus (Professor of music at Magdalen College, Oxford).
With an audacity Wagner himself would surely have appreciated, the filmmakers don’t exactly shy away from their subject’s more dubious traits: his fraudulent financial transactions with "mad king" Ludwig of Bavaria (among many others); his scandalous love life - which included a passionate love affair with his best friend’s wife; his fetish for pink, feminine gowns… and of course his abhorrent anti-Semitic views, which would make him a cultural talisman for the Nazis.
At the same time, the movie revels in Wagner’s triumphant artistry. No composer before or since had such a grandiose vision for what opera could be. - Courtesy: Vancouver Intl. Film Festival

Concert & CD Release: Songs from The (Post) Mistress by Tomson Highway, featuring Patricia Cano
Please join us Friday, December 13 at 8 PM - doors open at 7:30 PM - at the Isabel Bader Theatre, 93 Charles St West Toronto, ON.
Event is FREE and CDs can be purchased for $ 20.00
Celebrate this spectacular evening with host Tantoo Cardinal honouring the creative brilliance of performer, playwright, composer and novelist, Tomson Highway.
Performing Songs from The (Post) Mistress, a collection of stories of a resident post mistress through lyrics and music, Highway will be joined on stage by the incomparable songstress Patricia Cano and musicians David Restivo (piano), Ted Quinlan (guitar) George Koller (bass), Daniel Barnes (drums), Jeremy Ledbetter (harmonica), Gord Sheard (accordion) and Marcus Ali (saxophone & clarinet).
Canada’s leading Aboriginal playwright, Tomson Highway, returns with a musical tour d’ force! Based on his latest theatrical masterpiece, The (Post) Mistress, this CD releases 11 unique musical pieces weaving stories with a soundtrack like no other. Produced by Luisito Orbegoso at George Seara Sound, this cabaret-style evening is set in the not-so-distant past, when sending letters through the mail was still vital to communication. The (Post) Mistress knows her clients so well and through songs she shares stories of love within pieces ranging from Berlin cabaret to French café chanson to Dixieland jazz to smooth bossa nova styles in a multilingual French, Cree and English libretto. This musical celebration features the finest of Toronto’s musicians with the powerful vocal performance of Patricia Cano. This is a one of a kind evening you won’t forget.

A bill with serious roots in Ottawa mixed with some epic added Toronto flavour and a touch of Montreal takes off at Measure headlined by our favourite Ottawa act, Loon Choir and opened by their label mates Erik Lind & the Orchard. In between Toronto's Dead Jack Pine and RLMDL. Expand for full info, links, set times etc:
Erik Lind & the Orchard: https://www.facebook.com/eriklindandtheorchard @ 9:30:
"Erik Lind & The Orchard is a four-piece band from Montreal that plays folk-tinged rock music. Together this four-piece creates a lush, melodic sound that has drawn comparisons to fellow Canadians Wintersleep and Dan Mangan, with soaring harmonies reminiscent of Fleet Foxes and The New Pornographers and Lind’s tranquil voice at times recalling Great Lake Swimmers’ Tony Dekker."
Dead Jack Pine: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dead-Jack-Pine/168967239813962 @ 10:20:
Toronto's Dead Jack Pine are up next! Describes as "clean, precise with a bit of chaos" that one simple sentence sums up Dead Jack Pine very well. The band got its start playing a lot of shows for the GreenShades boys at Rancho but lately have been branching out and spreading their music around Ontario and several new venues in Toronto.
RLMDL: https://www.facebook.com/RLMDLmusic @ 11:10:
This is the musical version of long-time fan first time caller. I've been following RLMDL since day 1. Now a full band with Jordan Allen being joined by Michael Laing (the Love Machine) and Luke Duross this is the first time TWM has teamed up with RLMDL. I could never describe their fascinating and unique music style as well as their bio does. Click the link and read it for yourself.
Loon Choir: https://www.facebook.com/loonchoirmusic @12:10:
Loon Choir are at the forefront of a very strong Ottawa music scene. Writing powerful soaring indie-pop songs backed by some of the most creative, complex and addictive instrumentation around. They don't come to Toronto all that often so cherish it and do not miss it when they do!
When: Fri Dec 13th
How Much: $8
