Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 29, 2014

october events toronto 2014The top events in Toronto this October don't offer something for everyone, as the saying normally goes. If you're not up for all things arty, sexy, or scary, don't stay home and wilt like the falling leaves -- you could try snagging a last minute ticket to Cask Days here, or begging one off some lucky pal. Then there's Fashion Week for the fancy, the Psychic Fair for you spooky Mulders, and tons of other events you'll catch by perusing our events hub. Most importantly, don't forget to vote on October 27.

Yet not every event can be as equal as others. Here are October's can't-miss events in Toronto.

Today in Toronto: Artsvote Mayoral Debate, The Spoke, Ali Mustafa, True Stories Told Live, The Draperies

Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 29, 2014

today in TorontoToday in Toronto it's International Coffee Day, and you're going to need a caffeine drip to get through the city's offerings tonight, let me tell you. There's Damien Abraham of Fucked Up moderateing the ArtsVote Mayoral Debate at the TIFF Lightbox - what, couldn't they get Ed the Sock?

Then there's true stories performed live by various lit-heads at the Garrison (sans notes, and hopefully sans lies - totally unlike the above debate), music-centric live stories at Videofag, a free film fest art show thanks to Toronto Palestine Film Festival, and experimental music at Ratio. All these art events without any okay from City Hall? I'm not sure what to think. For more events, click on over to our events section.

Free events in Toronto: September 29 - October 5, 2014

Posted by Aubrey Jax / September 28, 2014

free events TorontoFree events in Toronto this week include - don't panic - Nuit Blanche. Toga party disguised as Toronto's biggest art event? Throwback to crafty dress-up sleep-overs past? Important step forward in bridging fine art with the broke, unwashed rabble?

Toronto's free all night, multi-zone party means congested transit, Dollar Store feather boa trails across the city, and large and small, oft-twinkling installations to explore until sunrise. Sadly, there's no "is it art?" number to call this year. Speaking of, this week you can watch the Artsvote debate moderated by Damien Abraham. Hate art? Poutine. Eating. Championship.
