MUSIC | Boys Who Say No and Fred at the Drake
Toronto indie stars Boys Who Say No kick off their summer tour with Ireland's Fred, a hotly-tipped new group that has an intensity and multi-instrumental prowess similar to that of Arcade Fire.
Drake Hotel Underground, 1150 Queen St W
GALLERY | Relationship: Works By Elizabeth Dyer
Elizabeth Dyer's latest body of work, Relationship, plays with illusion and reality using wallpapers and colours that make you want to linger in the rooms awhile. By carefully layering actual rooms that she has photographed in Europe, she conveys the true sense of the space.
Barbershop Gallery, 1718 Queen St W
TECHNOLOGY | Atari Punk Console
The so-called Atari Punk Console is based on a circuit by Forest M. Mims from the 1970s, and was recently popularized on the internet. Despite the name, it has nothing to do with Atari, but is instead a simple one-chip sound synth, easy to build and capable of making wonderfully awful noises.
InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Centre, 9 Ossington Ave / $50 / 7pm-10pm
