MUSIC | CMW - AUX Presents - "Vinyl" Art in Curation Party
As you're probably aware, Canadian Music Week is in full swing, making the hottest accessory around the city a CMW wristband. Or so you thought. Refreshingly however there are many awesome shows and events happening that don't require a fancy bracelet. Case in point: Vinyl Art in Curation Party presented by AUX TV and The Bonus Track. Three sensational bands - Put The Rifle Down, Babe and Freedom or Death - will be performing and a video installation courtesy of Dawn Grant will make the backdrop.
Baitshop (358 Dufferin Street), 7pm $5

PERFORMANCE | The Whole Shebang 2011
They say that dancing is good for the soul, and with The Whole Shebang 2011: The Village, your soul is sure to be treated to not only the delights of dancing but to also the pleasures of musicians, filmmakers, writers, poets and video artists, all under one roof. Garnering rave reviews from The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star and other notable publications, this special event is not to be missed. It is only on for tonight and tomorrow so hurry up and get your paws on some tickets.
Harbourfront Centre - Enwave Theatre (231 Queens Quay West), 8:30pm $38 adults, $22 students/seniors

MUSIC | Middle Brother w/ Deer Tick & Dawes @ The Opera House
A rock supergroup comes along once in a blue moon and thankfully the moon is as blue as ever tonight with Middle Brother. This band is comprised of the lead singers of Deer Tick, Matt Vasquez of Delta Spirit and Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes. They played their first-ever show together as a team last year at SXSW and are in Toronto for CMW, playing The Opera House tonight. Get ready to roll a little and rock a lot at this sure-to-be stellar show.
The Opera House (753 Queen Street East), 9pm $18.50 advance + S.C.

ART | Prisoners Exhibition
Dare we reflect on the frenzied weekend of June 26 & 27, 2010 here in Toronto? For those not good with dates, this marked the weekend of the G20 Summit and the largest mass arrest in Canadian history. Toronto photographer Brett Gundlock, who was working on assignment at the time, was arrested and today he avenges for himself and approximately the 900 others who were arrested that weekend, through a compelling art exhibit entitled Prisoners Exhibition. These are the faces and personal accounts of Toronto's own.
Communication Art Gallery (209 Harbord Street), 12-8pm Free

MUSIC | Pop Montreal Presents: CMW Night 2 w/ Holger + Pat Jordache + Technical Kidman + More
Pop Montreal brings their awesomely electrifying showcase to the Drake Undeground tonight with a bill of 5 bands from the depths of Montreal to Sao Paulo. And as an added bonus, they'll be open for business until 4am; no longer does a night a stellar music have to end early. Artists performing will be Olenka and the Autumn Lovers, Adam & The Amethysts, Technical Kidman, Jordache and Holger. Get ready to dance like no one's watching.
The Drake Underground (1150 Queen Street West), 7pm $10
