Radar: Scrabble in TO, JP and Kamilla's Screenprinting Marathon Series, Cordonado, West Hammock and Philip James, Madeon, What's in the Box
GAMES | Scrabble in TO
If you didn't get enough of board games with the family this holiday season, take a break from Mum and Dad, and head to Parkdale's new local board game café Go Lounge tonight for a night of Scrabble and word play. The inaugural Scrabble in TO at Go will have food and drinks being served up as groups will play Scrabble around the café, competing for prizes based on theme words. It's a free, fun event for all (you don't have to be a Scrabble word master), but it would help to RSVP on the Facebook page. Word up.
Go Lounge (1718 Queen Street West) 6PM Free
ART & DESIGN | JP + Kamilla's Screenprinting Marathon Series | EPISODE 1
JP Spanbauer and Kamilla Nikolaev of Signed Design Collective are hosting a marathon series where local artists and designers come together for a 24-hour party of screenprinting. Over 20 artists will participate in screenprinting design based on three words of inspiration they have picked out of a hat, with their final designs being sold for $20-$100. Karolina Kisiel will DJ the night, and drinks and snacks will be served as artists collaborate all night long. Stop by to watch and participate at #Hashtag Gallery tonight!

MUSIC | Coronado + West Hammock + Philip James
It's coming down to the last shows of the year and Rancho Relaxo is combining the sounds of surf rock, alternative, electro, and lo-fi dream pop to ring in the new year something proper. Local electro indie pop rock band Coronado headlines the evening following Durham melodic duo West Hammock. Singer-songwriter Philip James opens the show. Tickets will be available at the door and they're dirt cheap for a night of 2012's best new Canadian music.
Rancho Relaxo (300 College Street) 8PM $5
MUSIC | Madeon
Uploading a YouTube video for instant fame couldn't be more pop culture--and that's how Madeon and his song "Pop Culture" became known. The 18-year-old French house musician and producer performs an electro DJ set at The Hoxton tonight with opener Andy Ares. Tickets are priced based on quantity--the first 200 sell for $20, the next at $30, and the remaining priced at $40--and will be available at the door.
The Hoxton (69 Bathurst Street) 10PM $20-$40
