Radar: Dirty Thirties, Radio Dept and Young Prisms at Lee's Palace and Sonic Boom, Shoeless Monday, Rower's Pub Reading Series

CULTURE | Dirty Thirties
Tonight at Naco Gallery, the music, film and culture of the "dirty thirties" will be the theme of what promises to be a great shindig to get your week started. Hosted by Cristo Handlebar, we are promised "drinks, music, and good dirt." What better way to cure any 'great depression' from the relentless snowy weather?
Naco Gallery (1665 Dundas Street West) 8PM

MUSIC | Radio Dept and Young Prisms at Lee's Palace / Sonic Boom In store performance
The Swedish trio Radio Dept hit Lee's Palace tonight, with tourmates Young Prisms, from San Francisco. Both bands share an atmospheric guitar driven pop sound that seems to associate them with genres such as "shoegaze," "dream pop" and the like. Young Prisms will be warming up with an in-store performance at Sonic Boom (512 Bloor Street) at 4pm, which will definitely be worth checking out.
Lee's Palace (529 Bloor Street West) 9PM $15

MUSIC | Shoeless Mondays
Shoeless Monday is a very reliable weekly showcase of local indie-rock talent, and there's never a cover. This week's offerings are The Rescue, Bluestone, and Bear Attack. Come on out and show your support for these up and coming bands!
The Horseshoe Tavern (370 Queen Street West) 9PM FREE

LITERATURE | Rower's Pub Reading Series
This worthy literary event takes place the first Monday of every month, and is a great place to catch both established and emerging talent reading from their own works. Our February edition features the talents of Lauren Kirshner, Pasha Malla, and Daniel Scott Tysdal.
Harbord House (150 Harbord Street) 7:30PM FREE
