Radar: Brutal Knights, The Clothing Show, The Isosceles Project DVD Release, Women's Arm Wrestling Championship, Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS

MUSIC | Brutal Knights
Brutal Knights are back after a brief hiatus that was the result of frontman Nick Flanagan breaking his arm at their last show in Montreal this summer. They'll be warming up for their upcoming European tour tonight at The Silver Dollar with a slew of great Canadian acts like Statues, NoNoZero, Germ Attak and Dead Wife. I'm sure it goes without saying, but let's leave Nick on the floor this time.
The Silver Dollar, 486 Spadina Ave, $10, 9pm

FASHION | The Clothing Show
Shopping can be a big pain. You'd like to be able to get everything you need in one place, but you don't want to go to Sears. There is an alternative! The Fall Edition of The Clothing Show is setting up shop this weekend at Exhibition Place. Over 300 booths will be populated by local designers and vintage hounds. You'll be able to find anything from old records to handmade clothing. Plus they're introducing a brand new Eco section, full of earth-friendly and cruelty-free products -- if you care about that kind of thing.
The Better Living Centre, 200 Princes Blvd, Free, 3pm-9pm

MUSIC | The Isosceles Project DVD Release Show
Are The Isosceles Project such an amazing live band that you feel the need to have their show immortalized on DVD so you can watch it every night? Well apparently they think so. The three people who have heard of them can skip over this next part, because it will bore you -- The Isosceles Project is a local progressive metal band. You may remember them from the MuchMusic show Disband, where they were told to disband. Well that obviously hasn't stopped them. You can check them out tonight at Sneaky Dee's, then decide afterwards whether you want to add their live DVD to your collection.
Sneaky Dees, 431 College St, $6, 9pm

SPORTS | Women's Arm Wrestling Championship
Who's seen Over The Top? I'm imagining this will be exactly like that movie. Full of raw passion, glistening skin, backwards trucker caps and oil chugging. I hope Robert Loggia will be there. I hope someone will be doing it all for their kid. I hope the Sammy Hager theme song is playing the entire time. Of course the only exception is that tonight's event will be an all-women affair. That's it, all female arm wrestlers going at it for a championship belt. Check out this clip and you'll for sure be there tonight.
751, 751 Queen St W, $3, 10pm

FILM | Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS
Definitely not a movie for everyone, but if it sounds even remotely interesting to you -- you'll love it! Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS is about an evil Nazi warden at a concentration camp that conducts a series of medical experiments on prisoners to show that women can handle more pain than men, and should be allowed to fight on the front lines. Total 70's exploitation at it's best. The 35mm print will be shown in celebration of Eyesore Cinemas two year anniversary.
Toronto Underground Cinema, 186 Spadina Ave, $10, 9:30pm
