Radar: Grindhouse Ghoulies!, PS I Love You, Classic Simpsons Trivia, To Kill A Mockingbird, Stand Up for Kids featuring Dimitri Martin

THEATRE | Skin Tight Outta Sight and Great Canadian Burlesque present: The 5th Annual Grindhouse Ghoulies!
For generations two unexplainable phenomena have both frightened and titillated millions. Women when they voluntarily take off their clothes in front of an audience and monsters. It's odd how well those two go together. Like a punky purple-haired girl dancing buck nude in a cemetery and then being promptly devoured by soulless zombies. I'd imagine it would be like that but with a better soundtrack. It's hosted by some sort of Canadian Werewolf with Skin Tight Outta Sight, Fionna Flauntit, Vaudeville Tattoo, Magician Danny Proctor, Mysterion and more special guests being "summoned"
Mitzi's Sister 1554 Queen St. W Doors at 9pm, $15

MUSIC | PS I Love You live @ Soundscapes
The sleepy little town of Kingston Ontario has gifted the world with many a talented musical artist over the years including The Tragically Hip, Bryan Adams apparently, failed Canadian Idol contestant Ryan Malcom and Nathanial the 12-year-old magician. You can thank Kingston later. However PS I Love You have been getting a lot of positive attention these days as a duo to watch out for and in promotion of their latest recorded sound disc they're going to play at Soundscapes so check it out!
7-8pm Soundscapes (572 College St)

EDUCATION | WOO HOO! Classic Simpsons Trivia - Hallowe'en Edition!
"Hi David I'm Grandpa!" Marge is the vampire lord. Paul Anka sings to the monsters. The aliens don't like boards with nails stuck in them. "Nevermore." Bart is the evil twin. Hibbert is a medical genius. "Abortions for some, little American flags for others!" Homer kills zombie flanders. "He was a zombie?" Homer heeds Abe's logical advice on his wedding day regarding time travel. Bart is the giant devil. "Candy Apple Island?" There's a gremlin on the side of the bus. "There's a gremlin on the side of the bus!"
The Gladstone Hotel - Melody Bar, No cover, 8:00 pm (quiz starts at 8:30 pm sharp)

FILM | The Book Revue - October Edition: To Kill a Mockingbird
Well, well so it's been 50 years since Harper Lee published the classic book "To Kill a Mockingbird." The southern gothic tale of a young woman addicted to sex who is kidnapped by an aging blues singer who vows to blues-music the sin out of her. Then together they kill mockingbirds. Some in the past have told me that TKAM isn't what I think it is. They might mumble something crazy like how it's "about conscience--how it is instilled in two children, Scout and Jem Finch; how it operates in their father". Or something about how someone named Scout Finch is "fiction's most pealing child since Carson McCullers's Frankie got left behind at the wedding." Whatever that means! So revue cinema is screening the 1962 film of the same name and if I remember it correctly ... it's hot.
Revue Cinema (400 Roncesvalles ave) 7pm
