Earth Day events in Toronto 2014

Posted by Aubrey Jax / April 22, 2014

earth day torontoEarth Day in Toronto brings us a host of green-inspired events as well as many that really don't have much to do with the annual worldwide demonstration to support environment protection. Straddling the middle is |FAT| Arts & Fashion Week, TO's alternative / avant-garde fashion event of the year. It kicks off five days of runway shows, live performances, short films, photography exhibits and art installations. Tonight's theme is Earth/Industry.

At the Rivoli on Queen West new weird Canada musician Sandro Perri will perform "surprise songs" and a comedy routine before a screening of Gwar's Phallus in Wonderland. Let's hope Perri's skits are funnier than Drake's. Hungry after work? Bier Markt is giving away free fries. See our Earth Day 2014 round-up and all our top picks for today below. Want more events?

Easter Monday events in Toronto 2014

Posted by Staff / April 21, 2014

Easter Monday torontoOn this Easter Monday in Toronto the Early Monthly Segments crew present three of Mark LaPore's short-to-medium length films at the Gladstone Ballroom. Boston-area professor and filmmaker Mark LaPore, sadly, became one of those legendary and mythologized what-ifs when, in 2005, he took his own life.

In his early 50s at the time, LaPore helped usher in a turn toward ethnography in experimental documentary filmmaking, photographing locations such as Sudan, India and Sri Lanka, drawing attention to cultural and economic divides between Eastern and Western worlds. Check out the rest of our top picks for today below. For even more events, click on over to our events section.

Ah, yes. Each year, hundreds gather at Yonge-Dundas Square to smoke out the domineering billboards and give peace a chance, while the police will look on and wish the day would end so they could go home and party, Canada-style, themselves. If you're going to brave the crowds, remember not to operate heavy machinery within the next few hours and don't ride the dogs with the pot leaf bandanas, because they are dogs, not dragons. Sunday, April 20, 4:20-ish, Yonge-Dundas Square.
