Radar: Run with Kittens vs. The Cameron House, Die Walkure Live, Burner Mag Official Issue 02 Launch Party, The City of Light in 1925

MUSIC | Run with the Kittens vs. The Cameron House
Rockers Run with the Kittens have become a permanent fixture at The Cameron House over the past five years, a dedication to their hometown that has not gone unnoticed by Toronto music lovers. Multiple tours and 5 studio releases later, their presence runs deep, much like lovers carvings in the tree trunk, revisited time and time again. It's a sign of true humility when a band that receives so much love and praise continues to put on shows at the same venue they were playing at five years ago. If you haven't checked these guys out, I suggest you head to Cameron House tonight. There's a reason they won a TIMA for Best Live Electric Band.
The Cameron House (408 Queen Street West) 10pm PWYC

OPERA | Die Walkure Live
For one night only, AMC Yonge & Dundas will be transforming into a little slice of Italy. Richard Wagner's famous masterpiece Die Walkure will be filling the screen live, for all guests to experience this world-renowned opera as authentically as is possible from half way around the world and on a modest budget. The performance will be streamed live from Teatre alla Scala enabling you for 5 hours to imagine yourself in Milan, rather than downtown Toronto. For this we have D Films to thank, and their Opera in Cinema series, which makes some of the world's favourite operas accessible to everyone.
AMC Yonge & Dundas (10 Dundas Street East) 11am $19

LAUNCH | Burner Mag Official Issue 02 Launch Party
Burner Magazine, the result of a friendship between Sarah Miniaci and Leah Stephenson, is an online and 'digital pop art magazine' that strives to push boundaries and expose art and culture like never before. Considering they only launched this fall, the mag's rise in temperature has been exponential, which can only mean great things for their second-ever launch, happening tonight at Loft 404. Interviews with The Dandy Warhols and Governor-General award winning artist Istvan Kantor are the big winners for this latest issue and if their entertaining skills are as hip as their publishing skills, these gals will be throwing a mean party tonight. RSVP for VIP guest list.
Loft 404 (263 Adeladie Street West) 7pm $5

ART | Kiki's Paris: The City of Light in 1925
The Brick Analgesic Society, parent company to Brick Magazine (a literary journal that prides itself on celebrating the world's best-loved writers) is bringing the inaugural fundraising ball, Kiki's Paris: The City of Light in 1925 to the historic Berkeley Church tonight. Set to being an annual thing, this party will set the standards bar high. It will be hosted by Jian Ghomeshi, with a musical performance from Jill Barber (sister of Matthew Barber) and will be an evening filled with vintage swing music, and flowing cocktails all in support of the best in arts and literature. Come see what all the fuss is about, and know that your money is going to a worthwhile cause.
The Berkeley Church (315 Queen Street East) 8pm $75
