Events on Toronto's Radar for WEDNESDAY AUGUST 5, 2009
... lovingly handpicked from blogTO's events calendar

PARTIES | SummerWorks Launch Party
The Summerworks Festival is one of Toronto's best annual celebrations of music, theatre and culture - help kick off the festival in style with live music from Dance Yourself To Death and Daniel Lee of Hooded Fang, as well as readings from the Summerworks Anthology of plays from the Indie Arts Festival. See you there!
The Theatre Centre, 1087 Queen St W / FREE / ALL AGES

CYCLING | Basics of Bike Maintenance
A free evening seminar on the basics of bike care and maintenance - essential for those who favour the cycle over TTC or automobiles, but also an eye-opener for those thinking of switching over - compare this with the cost taking your car in for a tune-up!
Bikechain (basement of ISC), 33 St. George St / FREE

MUSIC | Kleenex
This showcase features some of Toronto's best experimental electronic artists, featuring Gravity Wave frontman Ken Farrell, 8-bit wizard TouchBoy, Ryan Kamstra (aka Spain's Most Extravagant Mexican)'s glitchy electro-folk songs and the ambient experimentalism of Freida Abtan and Joda ClĂŠment.
Drake Hotel Underground, 1150 Queen St W / 8pm / $4 / 19+

MUSIC | VILIFY at Dubslingers Wednesdays
As one of the few female DJ's representing the genre, Jenny Carmichael (aka VILIFY) holds her own in the clubs, spinning super-heavy Dark Jungle, Dubstep and Drum N' Bass. A veteran of the Montreal party circuit, she'll have Toronto dancefloors worked into a sweat in no time.
Thymeless, 355 College St / $5, free before 10:30 / 19+

MUSIC | Pitter Patter Nights Present: Wombat Wednesdays
A community-minded show presented by Pitter Patter Nights and Fuzzy Logic Recordings, featuring a stellar lineup of local musicians and artists including Keith Hamilton's Hamilton Trading Co., Allie Hughes, DJ Kadarski (of the Jurassic Park and Blue Velvet Shadowcasts) and many more!
Tranzac, 292 Brunswick Ave / $5 / 8pm / ALL AGES

Four of Toronto's finest comic minds come together to celebrate the ordinary and glamourize the mundane in a modern twist on the variety show, with special guests including Second City's Kate Ashby and musical burlesque duo Janice Hawke and Heidi Michelle Thomas.
