Events on Toronto's Radar for MONDAY AUGUST 3, 2009
... lovingly handpicked from blogTO's events calendar

THEATRE | Intervention #54
Intervention Monday is an experimental theatre troupe that draws upon draws upon the deepest, most decadent and over-indulgent possibilities of the human psyche as inspiration to combat the banality of everyday life.
The Ossington, 61 Ossington Ave

MUSIC | The Decemberists
The Decemberists' brand of thoughtful, lyrical indie rock has often been compared to fellow west-coast band Death Cab For Cutie, and the band's status as college radio favourites has landed them a great deal of success for a band with such artful ambitions. Their new album "The Hazards Of Love" takes their storytelling tendencies even further with character-driven songs and an underlying narrative.
