MUSIC | livemusicTO Holiday Kick-Off Party featuring: NEVERENDING WHITE LIGHTS
The enigmatic Neverending White Lights hit the El Mocambo tonight. This stylistically diverse studio project/live band hybrid, headed by songwriter/producer Daniel Victor, has produced an interesting body of work since its first release in 2005. The project is notable for the substantial number of guest vocalists who have contributed to the recordings, including Raine Maida, Dallas Green, Steve Bays (Hot Hot Heat), and many others. Tonight their performance highlights livemusicTO's Holiday Kick-Off Party, and special guests will include Bed Of Stars, Lyon, and Mr. & Mrs. Fox.

FILM | Free Screening of Semisweet: Life in Chocolate
As part of DOC Toronto's Community Connections program, a free screening of Semisweet: Life in Chocolate goes down tonight at the Revue Cinema. This Michael Allcock-directed film traces chocolate's amazing and lengthy history, as well as how it fits within our commercial culture, and the ways in which the lives of four different people (each located in different parts of the world) have been transformed by this substance. A panel discussion, including the film's director and producer, will take place after the show.
Revue Cinema (400 Roncesvalles Avenue) 6PM
LECTURE | The Revenge of Rave
As part of the Make Some Noise lecture series at the Bloor Gladstone Library, NOW Magazine's music editor, Benjamin Boles will deliver a presentation on electronic music and its influence on both popular music and popular culture. Boles, an active and educated part of the Toronto music scene as both a musician and DJ, is no stranger to both music and audio technology. Come out and support this interesting and very creative series of lectures on music and culture.
