CULTURE | Doored One Year Anniversary Jubilee
Doored's One Year Anniversary Jubilee happens tonight at Double Double Land. This will be an evening of performance art that some have described as "unhinged", celebrating this monthly event that has been going on for roughly a year. The evening will be hosted by Toronto duo Life of a Craphead, and will feature performances by Bridget Moser, Fake Injury Party, Laura McCoy, and many others. Music will be provided by Man Made Hill. Tonight will also launch the new Doored website. Double Double Land (209 Augusta Aveune) 7PM $7.
MUSIC | Euphonia's December Festival of Fun!!
Euphonia is the TO ensemble that proudly brings what we think of as "classical music" to the bars/clubs, where it truly belongs. This group has developed a following with regular appearances at Lula Lounge, playing works by Mendelssohn, Haydn, Mozart, and others. Tonight it's a Christmas party with special arrangements of your favourite tunes by Jordan O'Connor, guest vocalist Ori Dagan will be sitting in, there will be a Secret Santa "joke off" (it might be worth attending just to find out what this is!) and many more surprises. Lula Lounge (1585 Dundas Street West) 7PM $15.
MARKETPLACE | Bling @ Banu Holiday Pop Up Boutique
Tonight and tomorrow evening, Banu on Queen West hosts a "pop up boutique" featuring an assortment of designers and artists who will have their wares available for you to check out closely, and of course, purchase. This evening is the "cocktail" version of this event, and thing get rolling at five, with a delectable assortment of bites, which get you half off cocktails when you order them - not bad! There will be a great selection of handcrafted jewelry and the like to check out, and this "bling boutique" opens at 1PM tomorrow. Banu Iranian Kabob and Vodka Bar (777 Queen Street West) 5PM.
BOOKS & LIT | Insomniac Launch
London, Ontario-based Insomniac Press, launches some new titles and celebrates the Holidays with a shindig at the Dora Keogh Pub tonight. This small press has been active for over twenty years, and has evolved from publishing poetry chapbooks, to full blown works of fiction and non-fiction, and has put out editions by musicians like Jann Arden and Mathew Good, as well as establishing a firm niche in the LGTBQ mystery-fiction world. Tonight, you can check out new releases by Gayle Gonsalves, Aaron Giovannone, Althea Prince, Gonzalo Riedel, and Dan Yashinsky. Dora Keogh Pub (141 Danforth Avenue) 7PM.
