Posted by Jason Steidman / January 16, 2013

toronto events january 16MUSIC | The Walkmen and Father John Misty
New York-based rockers The Walkmen hit TO tonight for a show at The Danforth Music Hall. These guys are no strangers to touring, having formed in 2000, with seven albums under their belts. They are currently promoting their latest release, Heaven, which came out last May, and features guest appearances by members of Fleet Foxes and The Cocteau Twins. The vibe of this release is an optimistic and positive one, and reception to the album has been largely positive as well. Father John Misty opens tonight's show.
The Danforth Music Hall (147 Danforth Avenue) 7 pm $33.50-$45.50

BOOKS & LIT | Bill Brown's 1-2-3 Slam January Edition ft. Lisa Slater
Tonight is the first 1-2-3 Slam of 2013. This is a much-anticipated poetry slam with a $100 prize, where poets deliver one minute, two minute, and three minute-long pieces in different rounds as they compete and a winner is squeezed out! This evening's featured performer is BC spoken word artist Lisa Slater, who is an artist with feminist leanings and whose work explores themes of sexuality, friendship, and community. This should be a good one as this event has "regulars" who can't wait to give Slater a run for the money!
Q Space (382 College Street) 7PM $7

TRIVIA | Seinfeld Trivia Night: Questions About Nothing
There's a new trivia right in town folks - consider tonight the "pilot" for Seinfeld Trivia at The Monarch Tavern. Fans of the show will definitely want to consider making their way to this get together which promises to have plenty of prizes, some episodes being screened, and oodles of esoteric questions about your favourite TV series. It's a team sport, and teams will be made up of up to six people, so come ready to battle, or hook up with a crew onsite.
Monarch Tavern (12 Clinton Street) 7:30PM

BOOKS & LIT | Pivot Reading Series
The Pivot reading series holds its first reading of the new year tonight at The Press Club on Dundas West. This event is a special "all poetry" reading, featuring four poets who also do substantial work in fiction: Dani Couture, recipient of an Honour of Distinction from The Writers' Trust Dayne Ogilvie Prize; Lionel Shapiro Prize winner Nyla Matuk; 2010 Governor General's Award nominee, Sandy Pool; and Pat Lowther Award winner, Karen Solie. Jacob McArthur Mooney hosts this event, which takes places every other Wednesday.

They are also the entry through which very many people enter their homes at the end of long days.
It often comes in two varieties one with dual flexible sides and
one that has a hard side and a flexible side that looks a
lot like wood molding. That's the same fisheye effect that you get with
this lens.

Obviously such deals are pulling a large crowd to the market.
With a screen response time of 4-milliseconds, this LCD HDTV will provide you with
a high-end image fluidity that is beautiful to watch. The remote
compliments the TV set by having a similarly sleek,
trendy look.

The question is - which platform provides the best viewing experience.
You can get an excellent picture on your HDTV if you
use a cheap progressive-scan DVD player with HD upconversion.

However, Play - On does allow developers to make custom channels that you can load onto your server.

If you need, it is possible to choose one
with the Las Vegas hotels since the setting on your Las Vegas
NV marriage ceremony, reception and honeymoon. A very convenient way to search for things for the web is to merely speak your
quest term. Trading invites a number of sites is especially frowned upon inside
exclusive Bit - Torrent community because it allows anti-piracy
groups to infiltrate private trackers with less effort.
