Events on Toronto's Radar for FRIDAY JULY 10, 2009
... lovingly handpicked from blogTO's events calendar

MUSIC | Clouds at the Silver Dollar
Toronto gets a fresh dose of indie rock with several great local bands including Ministry of the Environment, Kidstreet and Clouds - catch them before they head to the studio this summer to record their debut!
The Silver Dollar, 486 Spadina Ave / 9pm

GALLERY | Barometric Reading Series
This gallery show features five of Toronto's most exciting and driven artists, displaying an air of confidence and ambition that stands out in today's accelerated culture. Presented by Young Canada.
Le Gallery, 1183 Dundas St W

THEATRE | Buffy The Vampire Slayer - Once More With Feeling SHADOWCAST
The triumphant musical episode of Joss Whedon's cult horror-comedy is re-imagined for the stage, with actors recreating the action on screen as the film plays behind them! Presented by Fringe Toronto as part of "The Silver Stage."
Bloor Cinema, 506 Bloor St W / $10 / 9:30

MUSIC | Beats, Breaks and Culture
One of Toronto's best annual summer music events returns for a sixth year, with performances by Montreal's WInter Gloves, Toronto's Holy F***, and synth-infused art-rockers Styrofoam Ones and DD/MM/YYYY.
Harbourfront Centre, 235 Queens Quay W / FREE / 8pm

ART | Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibit
With over 500 artists and an estimated 100 000 visitors, the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition is the largest outdoor alternative to conventional art shows and galleries, with artists of all different disciplines from Toronto represented including mixed media, glass, drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking and more!
Nathan Phillips Square, 100 Queen Street W / FREE

GALLERY | Trivial Pursuits: Mass Distraction
Trivial Pursuits presents the phenomena of digital distraction as new media art. Video projection, intermedia sculptures, and interactive installations encourage our engagement with irrelevance as our attention becomes split-focused by the excess of modern technology.
InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Gallery, 9 Ossington Ave

FOOD | Night It Up!
Arguably the best food festival of the summer kicks off tonight in Markham. Join the massive crowds for some smelly tofu, freshly shucked oysters and other amazing treats.
Metro Square at Steeles Ave & Warden Ave
