Today in Toronto: Why Can't Minimal, Zeus, I didn't retire, I surrendered, Almost Famous

Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 2, 2014

today in TorontoToday in Toronto you probably want to take it easy, whether you're sore from moving boxes or hammock disasters. If it's the latter I have no sympathy, but either way a couple of art shows and a free outdoor film screening await you. June Records' secret performer turned out to be a free backyard show with Toronto band-about-town Zeus via Arts & Crafts, which is more exciting than Brendan Canning I suppose.

Labour Day events in Toronto

Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 1, 2014

Labour Day TorontoLabour Day in Toronto is your last chance to wear white before risking the ire of the city's fashion police. If the rules are getting you down, run away from your worries to picnic and dance at Electric Island, featuring Jamie XX, Tale of Us, and more. Try not to get barbeque sauce on your white shir- well, nevermind, RIP summer, it's better to burn out than to fade away. Condiments, come at me!

Videofag's Feminist Film Screening Series will show Born in Flames (bring your own snacks). Today and tomorrow are your last chances to gorge yourself at the CNE, and today is the last day to strain your neck watching the air show. Possible excuse to make it a four day weekend? A day of rest and laundry. For more events, click on over to our events section.

Posted by Aubrey Jax / August 31, 2014

free events TorontoFree events in Toronto this week won't land you any means of production to take back your life from the people to whom it means so, so little, but they will allow you to meander TIFF's free street festival from September 4-7. Star gazing and lifestyle envy are free as well (warning: actual stalking can land you in financial hot water with the law).

If you're a broke film buff, be sure to scour the TIFF schedules for free screenings, and look online for people selling ticket packages for cheap (beware of scammers). Just kidding - you can't afford a day off work to stand in line.

From Lizzie Borden to Homer Simpson, here's how to live la vida no dinero in Toronto this week.

labour day events torontoWeekend events in Toronto is our guide to events happening this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Here's what's happening in Toronto this Labour Day weekend.

Canadian International Air Show
Maybe I should let the Toronto Air Show (unofficial, I guess) Twitter take this one. "VYOOOOOWWW-WWWOOOOOOOR-SHHHHH!!!!" Whether you're planning to have your eyes on the sky or your energy devoted to complaining (via Twitter or IRL), one must admit that big flying machines are pretty cool. The 65th Toronto show will feature tons of noise polluting planes and jets with super neato names. How does one get to name a jet, anyway? August 30 - Sept 1, 1-4pm, Canadian National Exhibition (210 Princes Blvd).
