MUSIC | Steam Whistle Unsigned
Steam Whistle Unsigned is noted by many as one of the finest supporters of the city's unsigned indie bands and artists. There is definitely no shortage of amazing unsigned acts in Toronto however Steam Whistle Unsigned brings some of the best to its brewery, instead of having you hunt for them solo. Tonight's lineup is something magical. Wildlife, Freedom or Death and The Darcys will all be taking the stage for what is sure to be an epic night of tantalizing musical performances. With tickets only $5 and a great brew on tap, this is one you definitely do not want to miss!
Steam Whistle Brewery (255 Bremner Avenue), doors @ 8pm $5

FILM | Hot Docs: The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975
The Canadian Premiere of The Black Power Mixtape is happening tonight as part of the famed Hot Docs film festival. Between the years of 1967-1975, Swedish journalists traveled to the U.S. to get the real story behind the black power movement happening all over the country. Then for 30 years the footage sat gathering dust until director Goran Hugo Olsson uncovered it and made said documentary. It highlights the movement's evolution through the eyes of leaders such as Bobby Seale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver. This is truly a powerful film that'd you be crazy to miss out on.
Bloor Cinema (506 Bloor Street West), 6:30pm $14

FILM | T24 Project Film Challenge
It always warms the heart to see spaces where budding young artists can shine in this city. Tonight's event, T24 Project Film Challenge is exactly one of those spaces, that supports our youth and our city at the same time. Young filmmakers were given 24 hours to create a film focused on Toronto and tonight they will be screened at The Tranzac. This is a competition so some serious prizes are up for grabs as well as the opportunity to mingle with industry leaders.
The Tranzac Club (292 Brunswick Avenue), 6pm Free
