Radar: Polaris Music Prize Record Salon Presents D-Sisive, full stop, Comedy at Czehoski, Antonine Maillet, Spotlight on Italy

MUSIC | Polaris Music Prize Record Salon #2: D-Sisive
This might just be the most amazing way to see some astounding music for free. Tonight marks the second Salon hosted by the Polaris Music Prize - a monthly preview of artists currently under consideration for the 2011 prize ballot. D-Sisive is up tonight at the Drake Hotel, where you can be one of the privileged few to experience his album performed live front to back coupled with an interview.
The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen Street West), 7pm Free

DANCE | full stop
If you're wondering what 'full stop' is all about, here's your answer. It is a "new site-specific dance work inspired by and including the Gemini Award winning dance-film Streetcar," and it will be presented by Peter Chin and Nick de Pencier tonight at Hub14. Hub14 is one of the most innovative and eclectic places on the city's scene right now, and therefore you will be nothing short of impressed by its latest show.
Hub 14 (14 Markham Street), 8pm $22/$18 CADA

COMEDY | Comedy at Czehoski
A night of hilarious and belly-busting comedy awaits you at Czehoski tonight, hosted by XM Radio Canada's Next Top Comic 2010, Matt O'Brien. Some great stand-up comedians will take the stage with one goal: to make you laugh until you cry. Or pee. So make sure to frequent the loo often if consuming the $4 beers.
Czehoski (678 Queen Street West), 8pm PWYC

FILM | Rendezvous de la francophonie presents Antonine Maillet: les possibles sont infinis

National Film Board Mediatheque (150 John Street), 7-9pm Free
