Here's how to prep yourself for a no frills budget New Year's resolution in Toronto this week.
Here are my picks for the top events happening in Toronto from December 19-21, 2014.
25th Annual Kensington Market Winter Solstice (December 21, Augusta Ave)
It's the darkest night of the year, and while fire in Kensington Market is a touchy subject right now, nothing can hold this celebration back. The Kensington Market Winter Solstice will fill Augusta with night-defying antics, complete with puppets on stilts and a healthy dose of pyrotechnics and fire jugglers.
Today in Toronto: Basement Revue, Cut Cut Paste, Birthday Massacre, Silent Shout, Jhene Aiko, Contact
On the other hand, Toronto's cuddliest bunch o' goths are back from tour and ready to make your holidays full Nightmare Before Christmas at Mod Club, TO's Silent Shout blog is counting down their favourite tracks of the year, and you can grab craft brickabrack and a drink at the Beaver.

Today in Toronto: Art Spiegelman, The Craft, Dirty Frigs, Sugarplum Soiree, Will Kwan, Little Terrors
If you're looking for music but not feeling the spirit, find Ratio's own Nick Storring releasing his new Endless Conjecture tape, or three gentle acts hiding out in an old, formerly sketchy hotel: Stacey, one of Toronto's most promising up and coming pop writers, joined by LUKA and and Day Wilson at the Gladstone. It's also the 200th Art Battle up the street at the Great Hall. For more events, click on over to our events section.
