FASHION | Take Off Your Clothes
When a summer wardrobe is in order but finances are not, there's only one solution: Take Off Your Clothes. Toronto's biggest clothing swap happens this weekend and with over 4000 garments donated last year, there is guaranteed to be a wide selection of gently used clothes to comb through. Stylist Monica de Liz will help swappers use their clothing to put together outfits while ยกBORRACHO! and The Perfect Mix entertain crowds with live performances. The swap opens tonight and will continue from 10AM-4PM tomorrow. Come early for the best pick of garments and donate your own by dropping them off before the event at locations listed on the website.
Trinity Bellwoods Community Centre (155 Crawford Street) 5PM $10 advance/$15 at the door
ART | photrOspective
The encounter between humans and photography is the focus of the photrOspective exhibit, examining the reactions of people when they enter new spaces. A collaboration of local artists and businesses along with Osvaldo Sales Gallery, the exhibit will feature over 200 photographs that merge humanity and technology in the digital age. Attendees are invited to go on a date with the 25 photographers present who will mingle (though not necessarily single) and discuss their works. Live music and a photo-market will also be a part of the evening.

MUSIC | The Davey Parker Radio Sound Album Release Party with The Speaking Tongues, Broken Bricks & Revolvers
To celebrate the release of their debut album "In A Land Of Wolves And Thieves," indie psychedelic rockers The Davey Parker Radio Sound are headlining their release party tonight at The Garrison. The Toronto band with a retro garage sound will be joined by local indie folk rock band Broken Bricks and fellow psychedelic rockers Revolvers for an evening of garage band and classic psych music that will take you back to the days of late '60s rock and roll.

FASHION | The Clothing Show
The Clothing Show returns to Toronto for its 34th year, showcasing unusual and unique garments for shop-a-holics from across the city. Over 300 booths will feature sample sale pieces and local Canadian designers but the Century of Fashion display in the vintage section will steal the show when collectors showcase pieces that span the 20th century. Local designers like Meshia's Closet, Anne Hopkins and Lou Lou Beads will promote their lines on the runway with fashion shows continuing throughout the weekend and this year will feature a fashion photography contest for shutterbugs.
Queen Elizabeth Building, Exhibition Place (195 Princes' Boulevard) 5PM $10 adults, $7 students, $5 seniors

Painter Susan Avishai and photographer Bob Bernstein bring f r a g m e n t s to the Triangle Lofts Gallery tonight to expose ideas of perception and reflections.

The exhibit is open to the public as is Susan Avishai's studio within the Triangle Lofts.
