FILM | An Evening With Bruce McDonald and "This Movie Is Broken"
Bruce McDonald, a Canadian director well known for his films such as "Hard Core Logo", and "Trigger", will be introducing a screening of "This Film Is Broken" tonight at Innis Town Hall. The film, directed by McDonald, features the music of Toronto's very own Broken Social Scene, and its storyline revolves around a BSS show, and a romance between two friends who attend it. There will be a Q&A with Professor Kass Banning, and a "schmooze-fest" in the Innis Cafe following the film.
Innis Town Hall (2 Sussex Avenue) 7PM FREE

MUSIC | Pink Floyd Experience @ Sony Centre
For those of you who "Wish You'd [Been There]," this is the next best thing. The Pink Floyd Experience promises to deliver just that, with a finely honed band who are reported to sound very close to the real deal, a light show budget extending into six-figures, projections, sound effects and more! Should be a trip...
