Radar: Oberhofer and Cloud Nothings, Jakwob, Little Dragon, Toronto Film Society Presents the Film Buffet Double Bill, In Person with Gretchen Rubin
MUSIC | Oberhofer + Cloud Nothings
Oberhofer, the NY-based indie-rock band fronted by 19 year-old Brad Oberhofer, (formerly from Tacoma, Washington) have been given big nods by Pitchfork and Stereogum, and grace the stage at The Drake this evening with Cloud Nothings, a Cleveland-based band, whose sound has been described as "wonderfully energetic and shambling indie rock". Check out Cloud Nothings' Daytrotter session from the Summer here, and Oberhofer's very recent DT session here.
The Drake Underground (1150 Queen Street West), 8PM $12
MUSIC | Jakwob
The UK's Jakwob, born James Jacob, is something of a wunderkind. Making music since his early years, he 'broke' in the UK via the BBC because of an Ellie Goudling remix, after already being toasted by the 'blog world for earlier 'unoffical' remix work that features very eclectic and accessible sounds. He now finds himself at the helm of the top clubs in Europe, and a very busy remix schedule. Spyne, Mack Browne, and others will also be spinning sets.
The Social (1100 Queen Street West), 10PM $10
MUSIC | Little Dragon
Little Dragon hits Wrongbar tonight, weaving their electronic sounds that have earned them many accolades through Europe and their home of Gothenburg, Sweden. Their song "Twice" was featured on Grey's Anatomy, and they were picked by Beyond Race Magazine as one of "50 Emerging Artists". This will be a great chance to catch them in a intimate venue.
Wrongbar (1279 Queen Street West), 8PM $13.50
FILM | Toronto Film Society Presents The Film Buffet Double Bill
A great cinematic smorgasbord being served up this evening with some different tastes! The film feast begins with "Way Out West" - a hilarious comedy from the masterful team of Laurel and Hardy, and our second feature is Arthur Penn's "Left Handed Gun" with a young Paul Newman giving his toughest on screen as Billy The Kid.
Innis Town Hall (2 Sussex Avenue), 7:30PM $15 ($8 students)
LITERATURE | In Person: Gretchen Rubin
Gretchen Rubin will be signing copies of her new book, "The Happiness Project". The book chronicles the author's year long search for happiness in an otherwise complete life. Rubin's work also engages her readers as a guide to finding this same 'happiness' in their own lives.
Indigo Manulife Centre (55 Bloor Street West), 7PM FREE
