It's that time of year when you pretend to be somebody else for one glorious night (/week), but these bands channel their favourite performers year round, paying tribute to great bands and great music. That said, you can celebrate Halloween with some of the city's best. Plus at Death to TO tonight, local, non-cover bands will form to pay tribute class acts like Depeche Mode, U2, and even Eminem. (There's also a Jeff Buckley tribute November 13-14 at Supermarket that's not to be missed.)
A Toronto graphic novel project is onto this correlation. Set here after a "Great War," The Future Prophecy features two sisters (one of whom is a DJ of course) and have (surprise!) magical powers. The comic "transforms Toronto into a dystopian urban battleground" - and comes with original music. If you're not sold on the local tie-in and electro twist, take a look at the artwork here.
