Radar: The Artist Project, Haste the Day & Guests, Mon Ocle Antoine, Trophy Lovers, Paul James, and more
ART | The Artist Project Toronto
Kicking off tonight and running through the weekend is The Artist Project Toronto, now celebrating its 4th year of success. This is a specially curated art show bringing together the best Canadian and international artists under one roof and for your viewing pleasure. Why would you go tonight and not save it for the weekend you might ask? With so much unbridled talent it is inevitable that pieces will sell as fast as a good poutine so the sooner you go, the sooner you have a leg up on the buyer competition.
Exhibition Place - Queen Elizabeth Building (180 Princes' Boulevard), 7-10pm $10 online, $12 at the door
MUSIC | Haste the Day, My Children My Bride & Guests
You probably know of Haste the Day as one of the frontrunners in American Christian metalcore music of the last decade. It is sad to say however that in late November they announced their break-up. Unlike some other bands who have recently broken up in such swiftness (not to mention any names) Haste the Day is parting ways with the fans in mind, as they have undertaken their last-ever tour in February and March. They'll be headlining tonight's show with the support of My Children My Bride, The Chariot and more. Come say your farewells.
The Annex Wreckroom (794 Bathroom Street), 5:30pm $17.50 advance, $20 at the door
FILM | Cine-Jeudi presents Mon Ocle Antoine
This film stands in a league of its own, as it was awarded 'Best Canadian Film Ever Made' by the Toronto International Film Festival. Directed by Claude Jutra it is a film based and centered around Quebec, a Quebec that "makes no headlines but reflects the whole of life." It was filmed in 1971 and since then has aroused emotions in audiences across the country. Tonight, it might just be your turn. Film is in French with English subtitles.
Mediatheque (150 John Street), 7:30pm $6, $4 students/seniors
ART | Trophy Lovers
I bet most can say with all honesty that they never have taken the time to extensively examine a trophy and its unrealistic symbol of perfection. Rather than this task being an unguided exploration, lean on artist Jane Duncan to share her exhibit Trophy Lovers and explain these "social constructs of perfection" through art. The show commences tonight with an opening reception and is sure to be something mesmerizing, as seems to be the trend with exhibits put on by Gallery 1313. Come with an open-mind and a willingness to see the other side of the coin.
Gallery 1313 (1313 Queen Street West), 7-10pm Free
MUSIC | Thursday Night Confidential & Toronto Blues Society present Paul James
Come experience one of Canada's most famous blues musicians up close and personal tomorrow at the Gladstone's Melody Bar. Paul James has shared the stage with such heavy hitters as Bob Dylan, Bo Diddly, Willie DeVille and more and will be performing an extremely intimate and exclusive show for all savvy enough to haul it over to the Gladstone. And even better, it's free!
Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen Street West), 8pm-12am Free
