Radar: Robyn Hitchcock, Cards Against Humanity, Run With The Kittens
Toronto events on September 3rd, 2013
MUSIC | Robyn Hitchcock at The Drake
Well known English singer/songwriter, Robyn Hitchcock, plays TO tonight at The Drake Hotel. Hitchcock originally made his mark in the late '70s with the edgy power-poppy band The Soft Boys. His subsequent solo career has proven to be just as successful, if not more so. His unique song writing style, lyrical approach, and guitar playing have earned him a steady and loyal cult following, even though his work has never achieved mainstream success. His latest release, the Paul Noble-produced Love From London came out earlier this year, so fans can expect some new material they likely haven't seen live before. Kate Boothman opens the show.
The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen Street West) 8:30PM $21.50
GAMES | Cards Against Humanity
Extensive research has proven conclusively that games and drinking go very well together, and with this in mind, Cardinal Rule on Roncesvalles has recently begun hosting a game of Cards Against Humanity every Tuesday evening. Cards Against Humanity is a game that thrives on bizarre associations and a slightly twisted sense of humour. Each player draws a number of "answer cards", and a player in a role known as the "Card Czar" will select a card with a question. The rest of the players must them submit one of their answer cards that they feel will be the most appropriate, or be chosen for its humour and deemed by the Card Czar as his/her favourite. Unlike games or contests that require hand-eye coordination or manual dexterity, this is definitely the sort of game that promises to become funnier and more interesting with cumulative liquor consumption.
Cardinal Rule (5 Roncesvalles Avenue) 8PM
MUSIC | Run With The Kittens at the Cameron
We last caught up with RWTK about a year ago, when they made our reviewer feel a little uncomfortable at the Gladstone. These guys are a tight band who bring a ton of energy to their live shows, so as long as you the band doesn't find out that you're reviewing their show, you're in for a treat.
Cameron House, 10PM, PWYC
SPORTS | Toronto Argonauts vs. Montreal Alouettes
The Toronto Argonauts, North America's oldest professional football club, are proudly celebrating their 140th anniversary this year, and you can take part in the celebration with them. The Argos have forged a place in the Toronto community by their players' direct involvement in it, and through both community programs, and The Argos Foundation as well. The Argonauts, who have 16 Grey Cup championships to their credit, will battle it out tonight with the Montreal Alouettes in this East Division match-up.
