Polson Street Toronto

Radar: The Submarines, Married to the Disease, The Atomic Weight of Happiness, Manhunt, Art-Folk-Gypsy-Show

MUSIC | The Submarines w/ Nik Freitas
The Submarines, a man and wife twosome from SoCal, are touring the continent promoting their sophomore album, Love Notes/Letter Bombs, which dropped on April 5th. This young couple makes indie pop music that brings a little bit of beachside LA love to our cosmopolitan city. This will be only one of two Canadian tour stops, and there's no doubt our indie audience will embrace them with open arms tonight at The Horseshoe. Nik Frietas and Matthews Brothers to open.
The Horseshoe Tavern (370 Queen Street West), 9pm $12.50 advance, $15 at the door

ART | Married to the Disease
Tonight marks the opening night of Nitasha McKnight and Ceilidh Stidwill's exhibit called Married to the Disease, presented in partnership with The Whitehouse Studio Project. We know very little about this show and in this case, there is something to be said about keeping the mystery alive. What we do know however is that it is a multi-medium exhibit featuring the works of two young, dynamo Toronto artists, with a soundtrack by Fresh Flesh. It has my vote!
The Whitehouse (277.5 Augusta Avenue), 7pm Free

DANCE | The Atomic Weight of Happiness
For a limited run only, Meagan O'Shea brings her newest and most exciting project The Atomic Weight of Happiness to the stage at Hub 14. O'Shea has 12 toes between her two feet, and instead of letting this bring her down, she has channeled this energy to make her shine in the glory of her uniqueness. The Atomic Weight of Happiness is described as "bicycle-powered theatre/dance mash-up based on many (un)true stories." Opening reception plus performance is tonight, and the show runs until May 29th.
Hub 14 (14 Markham Street), 8pm $10-$25

GAME | Manhunt: Logan/Danforth
Manhunt is like a real-life video game, where you're hunting others, just as much as they're hunting you. It has an impressive 8-year history in our city, appeasing everyone's inner animal instincts. Under the blackness of night, participate in three games, feeling your adrenaline pumping with your footsteps as you navigate the area of Logan & Danforth.
Logan Avenue & Danforth Avenue, 8:30pm Free

MUSIC | Art-Folk-Gypsy-Show (NY to TO)
Freeman Dre & The Kitchen Party may just be some of the freshest folk you've ever heard. They are hotly in the midst of a whirlwind tour, which includes many New York and Toronto dates promoting their debut release Red Door 2nd Floor. Tonight is their first tour date on T.O. soil and come on down to Kensington to hear foot-tapping, feel-good, energy-filled songs by a stellar live band.
Bread & Circus (200 Augusta Avenue), 9:30pm $10
