READING | Parkdale Street Writers Night at the Artbar Reading Series
A group of brilliant young Toronto writers will be taking over the Artbar Reading Series at Clintons tonight for a vibrant night of readings and poetry. These stories will be some of the most hilarious, heart-breaking, inspiring, and fantastic that you have heard in a while and with a hearty line-up of fresh talent it will be impossible to stay for just one. The night will be hosted by seasoned writers Emily Pohl-Weary and Dianah Smith.

THEATRE | The Vagina Monologues
A special tribute for International Women's Day, this production of The Vagina Monologues is happening for one night only courtesy of OISE.

MUSIC | Siskiyou + Chrome and The Ice Queen + Guests
Past Great Lake Swimmers member Colin Huebert and current member Erik Arnesen create the perfect pair as Siskiyou, a new and exciting music project.

They have made the long trek east to our city for one performance only. Ethereal Toronto band Chrome and The Ice Queen will hype up the audience before the main event.
The Drake Underground (1150 Queen Street West), 8pm $13
