Radar: White Girl Records presents Invasions 7" Release Party, WDWMKR 3 Year Birthday Party Show, Nobuaki Onishi, Quiver by Holly Luhning, In Front of Us

MUSIC | White Girl Records presents Invasions 7" Release Party
If you're in the market for a healthy dose of energetic garage-rock then White Girl Records has just the remedy for you. Their first-ever release party is happening tonight at the Garrison where they will be introducing to the world, Invasions brand-spanking new 7" vinyl. Catch them before they go on tour! Enjoy a craft brew or two, as Mill Street Brewery will be sponsoring the night.
The Garrison (1197 Dundas Street West), 10pm $5

COMEDY | WDWMKR-3 year birthday party show
Pronounced 'widowmaker' these are the finest femmes in sketch comedy in the city. And lucky for you, these hilarious gals want to share their birthday celebration with anyone who is brilliant enough to hoof it down to the Comedy Bar. Forget dainty and polite, this show will make you blush and cheer like a rowdy sports fan.
The Comedy Bar (945 Bloor Street West), 8pm $7

ART | Nobuaki Onishi
Nobuaki Onishi was born in Japan and now graces Toronto with his artistic prowess, creating objects from resin and paint that can mistakenly be interpreted for the real thing. Shoes you'll want to slip on, tumblers you'll want to sip from; this ingénue art form will play tricks on the mind.
Georgia Scherman Projects (133 Tecumseth Street), 6-8pm

BOOK | Celebration of the new book Quiver, by Holly Luhning
Holly Luhning is a young, bright mind with many awards under her belt. She has written poetry, articles, short stories and more and will be celebrating the release of her newest success, Quiver tonight at The Gladstone Hotel Art Gallery. Quiver is making deep impressions far and wide; the National Post says, "This writing in this novel is as clean and slick as a stiletto between the ribs."
The Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen Street West), 7:30pm Free

ART | In Front of Us - Yoakim Bélanger
Montreal artist Yoakim Bélanger's opens tonight in the Cooperage Space. He is a master of the human form, creating electrifying pieces that will stimulate the senses. This outstanding show will include 25 mixed media works on discovered sheets of oxidized steel and aluminum, with two main themes, "Groups of distant figures and vibrant, energetic close ups."
Thomspon Landry Gallery (55 Mill Street, Bldg 32, #101), 11am-5pm Free
