MUSIC | Elvis Mondays / Cherno & Dimitri's BdayZ
Kind of a strange combo of double-B-Day celebration, and the glorious return of Elvis Mondays after a holiday hiatus.... You know the music will rock as it always does! Tonight People Of Canada, Sex On Vacation, Arman's Frozen Peas, and more will roll it out for you, plus DJ CHUCK KLOSTERMAN is in the house.

LITERATURE | Rowers Pub Reading Series
This monthly reading series runs October to June, on the first Monday of each month. It has a good reputation for presenting established authors, and newcomers who show great promise. This evening Michael Lista, Alison Pick, and Drew Hayden Taylor will present some of their latest material.
Harbord House (150 Harbord Street), 7:30PM FREE
