MUSIC I Steam Whistle Unsigned Indie Music Concert Series
The best nights out frequently are the ones where you're least expecting it. Fun can have a way of sneaking up on you in the best way possible. Steam Whistle Unsigned is the perfect event to take your night from average to amazing. Featuring some of the hottest indie talent, tonight is your chance to be one step ahead of the buzz. Past showcases have featured Rural Alberta Advantage, Woodhands and Dinosaur Bones. Tonight's showcase brings us Young Empires, Rich Aucoin and DVAS - three bands making waves and definitely worth seeing live. Not too shabby for only 5 bucks.
Steam Whistle Brewery (255 Bremner Boulevard) 8pm $5

MOVEMBER I Stache Bash
With the month of Movember more than half over, a man's true ability to grow facial hair has nowhere to hide. As you survey the men in your life, some have a pretty solid stache in the works, perhaps one that could challenge Tom Selleck's thick beast. Others have grown something resembling a dried out Chia pet. Sparse or bushy, light or dark, men around the city are showing their support for prostate cancer. Tonight, Immersion Media is hosting the first annual T.O. Stache Gala in honour of Movember. Sport your duster and take part in the party at 99 Sudbury.
The Studio (99 Sudbury Street) 8pm $30

FILM I Reel Awareness Film Festival
Film can sometimes be the most powerful way to tell a story and in the case of the Reel Awareness Film Festival this statement couldn't pack a stronger punch. This event, put on by Amnesty International tackles human rights issues from around the world, bringing their realities - the plight, suffering and struggles - to the screen. For its fifth year running, Reel Awareness showcases a collection of documentaries and feature films, with the hope of inspiring change and creating advocates. Tonight's film Hunger, directed by Marcus Vetter and Karin Steinberger starts at 7pm at the NFB.
National Film Board of Canada (150 John Street) 7pm PWYC
