MUSIC | Cut Copy w/ Holy Ghost!
Australian sensation Cut Copy will be returning to the Sound Academy stage tonight for a hotly anticipated first Toronto performance since their recent album, Zonoscope set hearts on fire around the globe. The last time they played Sound Academy, a few years back, there was enough room to dance out a choreographed routine but this time, expect the audience to be grooving hip to hip as fans will be migrating in droves to the Pier. And trust me; get ready to dance your feet off. NYC's Holy Ghost! will be kicking the night off.
Sound Academy (11 Polson Pier), Doors @ 9pm $30
NEW MEDIA | Meta 2011: A Showcase of New Media Artworks
Tonight marks the 5th New Media Artworks, an event put on by the graduating students of Ryerson's New Media program. This year's event is titled Meta 2011, and it will feature, "over twenty aesthetically and technologically innovative projects that express modern advancements in art and design." Exhibitions will include video installations, animations and more. The opening reception tonight will be a unique opportunity to experience the talents of some of Toronto's budding new media stars.
Arta Gallery (55 Mill Street, Suite 102, Bldg 9), 5-10pm Free
MUSIC | PS I Love You
Kingston's very own PS I Love You will tap into your inner rock star like a strong-willed woodpecker, and once this band gets inside, you'll never want it to leave. Their debut album that released last year brought with it some dangerously rich goodness that is made all the more hearty once you see it performed live. And guess what - tonight's your chance, at the Garrison. Be there or be seriously square.
The Garrison (1197 Dundas Street West), Doors @ 9pm $12.50
FILM | Toronto Silent Film Festival presents The Wild, The Beautiful...and The Damned pt 2
We all can likely agree that a movie is best enjoyed amongst the silence of your friends. But silence in the movie itself? Even more mesmerizing. You might just feel this way after seeing what the Toronto Silent Film Festival is presenting tonight as the closing film of the festival. It is called The Wild, The Beautiful...and The Damned Part 2. Without the presence of dialogue and sound effects you'll be amazing at how enchanting the picture can be.
Trinity - St. Paul's (427 Bloor Street West), 7:30pm $15, $12 for students/seniors
ART | Toronto Subway: A Love Story
Although there's no opening per se, Dominion Modern's exhibit about the development of David Vereschagin's "Toronto Subway" typeface, a near-perfect replica of the original (and nameless) font found on the Yonge Subway Line, gets underway today at Dominion Modern. To honour Vereschagin's work, students at George Brown's School of Design have recreated a section of Eglinton Station (the only one on the line that still features the original Vitrolite glass tiles) out of corrugated cardboard. Worth a look if you're in the area! And for more info, check out our post on the exhibit from a few days ago.
Dominion Modern (230 Richmond Street East), 9am-9pm Free
