PHOTOGRAPHY | The Urban Voyageur Show - Opening Night
Navigating the streets of Toronto is one thing but how about the city's waterways? Frank Lemire, William Self and Michael Mitchener - all of whose photos have graced these pages before - know all about it from their first-hand experience exploring the "wet" roads of Toronto by canoe. Tonight they will be sharing their photography from their adventures, accompanied by adult beverages, food and great music. Check out the above image for an idea of what's in store.
Voulez Vous Café (1560 Queen Street East), 7pm Free

MUSICAL | The Threepenny Opera
This musical is a self-proclaimed "frenetic black-comedy" and is in no way an opera, just to clarify for the skeptics. It has a long-standing history of being one of the great European-born jazz-cabaret masterpieces and has been performed in 18 different languages around the world. The music is gritty and bold and undeniably irresistible. The show runs until February 12 and is being brought to the stage thanks to the wonderful young stars of UC Follies.
Hart House Theatre (7 Hart House Circle, U of T), 8pm $12-20

MUSIC | Foxes in Fiction, The Connoisseurs of Porn, Cowlick, The Cool Hands
If you're thinking of putting your love affair with shoegaze, bedroom, lo-fi bands to rest, you'll want to check out Foxes in Fiction before making such a life-altering decision. And even more so because they are from Toronto. We all know how much love is deserved for our bands from this city. They will be headlining tonight's show at the Hard Luck Bar, supported by The Connoisseurs of Porn, Cowlick and The Cool Hands.
Hard Luck Bar (812 Dundas West), 8pm $5

PHOTOGRAPHY | Seventyfive Percent: Ryerson Third Year Photography Show
Looking to check out some budding, young photographers? If so, the Third Year Photography Students at Ryerson's School of Image Arts will be launching an exhibit tonight called seventyfive percent. The pieces featured in this show are raw portrayals of societal representation. What unites these young artists is, "their desire to comprehend and extend the boundaries of representation," and to make it their own.
I.M.A. Gallery (80 Spadina Avenue, Suite 305), 6-9pm Free

STAGE | Highway 63: The Fort Mac Show
A hard life, it is, working in oil mining and The Fort Mac Show troupe know all about it. Instead of complaining, they have brought their stories to the stage and will be in Toronto tonight all the way from Fort McMurray to share in a unique way through 'verbatim and improvisation' the trials of working on the northern tip of Highway 63, at the Athabasca Oil Sands. Sneak preview tonight, show doesn't officially open until February 8 and runs until February 26.
Theatre Passe Muraille (16 Ryerson Avenue), 8pm $15-35
