Radar: Citizens!, Masta Killa, Best in Show, Odyssey The Musical, U of T Caribbean Film Festival
Toronto events on March 7, 2013
MUSIC | Citizens!
London's Citizens! are fresh off a European tour and ready to make their North American debut. Having their debut album produced by Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos is surely a good start and the result is Hear We Are, an indie rock record that is classically British in the best way. Playing their Toronto debut at Wrongbar tonight, Citizens! are sure to be fun, pop-y and indie all in one five-piece outfit. Tickets available at the door.
Wrongbar (1279 Queen Street West) 8PM $15
MUSIC | Masta Killa
Wu-Tang Clan's Masta Killa is one of the many members of the Clan to branch out in recent years, playing solo shows in Toronto. Performing music from his solo albums, including 2012's Selling My Soul and works from his upcoming fourth record, Masta Killa plays the Mod Club tonight. Joining the Brooklyn rapper will be Loren Whittingham, Black Market Underground, Taigenz, and Lyricks. Tickets are available through TicketScene, Play de Record (357 Yonge Street), and Scarborough's Ecko Clothing store (300 Borough Drive).
Mod Club Theatre (722 College Street) 8:30PM $15
