Family Day 2013 events in Toronto. For even more family day events check out this post.
FILM | Early Monthly Segments #48 - ANDY WARHOL'S "KITCHEN"
Toronto's monthly screening of both old and new underground and experimental films, Early Monthly Segments, returns tonight with an excellent selection: Andy Warhol's 1965 film, Kitchen. This film stars Edie Sedgwick, one of Warhol's most celebrated "superstars," and one whose tragic end has made her a cult figure and the subject of several biographies. This film is one of her more well-known collaborations with Warhol, and comes from the most prolific period in their working relationship, and definitely the peak of Sedgwick's career.
Gladstone Hotel, Ballroom (1214 Queen Street West) 8PM pwyc ($5 - $10 suggested donation)
MUSIC | The Radiohead Jazz Project 3
The Radiohead Jazz Project brings together two different jazz ensembles in one show, both paying tribute to the music of (you guessed it) Radiohead. The Toronto Jazz Orchestra will deliver a set of big band arrangements of Radiohead tunes, with arrangements by Chris Hunt, Christian Overton, Mike Downes, Tara Davidson and Josh Grossman. Singer Alex Samaras will front the ensemble, which features pianist Ian Sinclair, and vibraphonist Carissa Neufeld. The second ensemble, Idioteque, prides itself on performing "note-for-note" version of selections from the Radiohead repertoire, and features both Don Scott and Jessica Stuart on guitar and vocals. Radiohead fans looking for a new spin on these classic tunes should definitely check this event out.

BOOKS & LIT | Nigella Lawson Book Signing
Nigella hits TO today for a book signing at Indigo on Bloor Street. Since her first cook book, How To Eat, was published in 1998, Lawson has gone on to international fame. This well known culinary enthusiast, writer, and television personality will be promoting and signing her latest, entitled Nigellissima. The assertion that "Italian food has colonized the world" is a clever and largely accurate one. Nigellissima contains over 100 recipes, both traditional and modern, and some featuring Lawson's own "twists," and there's a BBC series to accompany the book, too.
Indigo Bay & Bloor (55 Bloor Street West) 1PM
FAMILY | Family Day Winter Picnic at Evergreen Brick Works
