FILM | The Room - One Year Anniversary
YOU'RE TEARING ME APART, LISA! I'm sure you've heard people screaming that and other ridiculous lines in a really ambiguous accent and wondered what the hell they were talking about. Well they are quoting The Room, possibly the best worst movie ever. So good in fact that hoards of people have been lining up infront of The Royal at 11pm one Friday night a month for a year now to see it. Most people by now have seen it a million times and can (and do) quote the entire movie the whole time. If you haven't seen it, the only way to experience it is with a huge, excited, and partly drunk crowd. However if you don't like people talking during a movie, you might be peeved.
The Royal, 608 College St, $12, 11:30pm

MUSIC | More Proof
If you're tired of the regular old electro/house music that has been filling so much of Toronto's nightlife, you'll want to check out The Drake Underground tonight. More Proof is hosting a night of unique and artistic house music that you wouldn't normally find anywhere else. Expect a full multimedia show with acts like Your Boy Brian, Jon Friis and Collin Bergh resulting in what will no doubt be a full on sweaty dance party.
The Drake Underground, 1150 Queen St W, $5, 11pm

MUSIC | Starlight Burlesque
You don't see enough burlesque but I know deep down you're dying to. One of Toronto's newest Burlesque revue is performing at Tattoo Rock Parlour, promising a night of old school girls that are as funny as they are sexy. Starlight Burlesque promises to take you back half a century to the bawdy bars of Berlin, Paris and New York, preserving the golden days of Vaudeville and Cabaret. Okay, I don't know a lot about burlesque, but after typing all this out I think I know what I'm going to do tonight...
Tattoo Rock Parlour, 657 Queen St W, 10pm

MUSIC | METZ 7" Release
Local grunge rockers Metz have been going strong for atleast three years now and aren't showing any signs of slowing down. After releasing a handful of 7-inches over the past few years, the band is celebrating the release of their newest one, Negative Space/Automat. You can check out songs from it on the band's MySpace page, but I think we all know it would be 100x better live. Opening are Anagram and Induced Labour, and just by judging from those names, if you value your ear drums you might want to bring along some ear plugs... or just some wadded up toilet paper from the bathroom.
Parts & Labour, 1566 Queen St W, $10, 10pm

WORKSHOP | Bike!Bike! Scavenger Hun
If you are a true Torontonian, you love your bike, you ride it everywhere, and you would rip the head off of someone you saw trying to steal it. To celebrate this, Bike!Bike! is hosting a weekend of workshops, film screenings, and rides. Tonight you can be a part of a Bicycle Scavenger Hunt starting at The Bike Joint. So if you are in the area, be sure to watch out of bikers darting around the city trying to fill up their score cards. Also make sure to check out www.bikebike.org for a full listing of workshops because knowing how to tune up your own bike is a wonderful skill to have.
The Bike Joint, 290 Harbord St, Free, 7pm
