Radar: Cinemacabre, SSCS Vegan Potluck Fundraiser/Movie, Rae Spoon CD Release, WTFunk?!?, 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art

FILM | October Cinemacabre: A Serbian Film
Which Serbian film? Don't they make a lot of films in Serbia? Well lets look at the clues. Cine, meaning film or electric talking-pictures and macabre meaning weird, disturbing and the feeling I get when I see my roommate using his neti pot, ya' dig? Hmmm what other hidden hints can we discern from the poster? Oh this is just like that Halloween episode of Wishbone! ..."Milos, a former porn star is lured out of retirement by an eccentric director with a fat chequebook. But when Milos has a change of heart and attempts to leave the project, it results in unspeakable repercussions..." Damn that is not like Wishbone at all. Maybe one of the un-aired episodes? Like when Wishbone read Choke?
Bloor Cinema, 9:30pm

FOOD | SSCS Toronto Vegan Potluck Fundraiser/Movie
For some reason all I can seem to think of when I think of the word 'potluck' is my grandmother. And all I can imagine when I hear the term 'vegan' is a KFC double down! Now normally when I hear a granny is going down (most likely in a church basement), my first instinct is to NOT to go, for obvious fears of incessant cheek pinching and ceaseless tales of being a candle maker during the Boer War or something. But this granny actually sounds alright! I'm in no way a vegan (I had a double down this afternoon so dig on that), but vegster food is almost always really tasty and great for you. Also at this grandma there's gonna be a demonstration on how to make vegan ice cream, there's gonna be a movie, there's gonna be SSCS merch to purchase and it's BYOB so there's GONNA be booze. Take THAT grandma. Way to go grandma-burger with the SSCS.
50 John Street, second floor, $5 Entry plus bring a Vegan Dish to share with 5 to 10 people,doors at 5pm

MUSIC | Thursday Night Confidential presents the RAE SPOON CD RELEASE
Polaris nominated pop artist Rae Spoon is releasing a new album, love is a hunter and the party goes down at the Gladstone. RS has been described as a "...musician..." who is very "... talented..." and records and plays very "... good music..." I guess the critics love him! Get your dance on as ..."He continues to navigate through uncharted terrain, blurring musical genres, lyrical lines and electro-infused beats..." Can you dig it?!
The Gladstone Hotel Melody Bar, PWYC, 8-11pm

PARTY | WTFunk?!?
Don't worry, I wasn't giving you swears. The word is FUNK not the sinny one. So yeah WTFunk is happening again, this time with DJ EL MACHETERO. Sounds delightful! Remember Thursday isn't the new Friday, Friday has been the poor man's Thursday foreva!
Blondie's Bar, 1378 Queen Street West, Free, 8pm onwards

ART | 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art
Performance art? Oh this is something I certainly do not dig! Well usually. But looking at this ... I mean it's the INTERNATIONAL Festival of Performance Art so...you must have to really know what you're doing to be involved in this right? Tell me I'm not wrong. I mean it's not like visiting Kingston and seeing a sloppy flashmob in market square and thinking "Oh right, performance art." No this has fresh emerging and well established artists from everywhere! Belgium, China, Colombia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Singapore, Sweden, UK, USA and Venezuela that's a lot of places. ALSO Canada! (what what!) Yeah I think I can dig on this. Dig all over this!
Mercer Union and Toronto Free Gallery, scheduling info here.
