MUSIC | Elvis Monday
It's Monday - that means music! Elvis Monday goes down at the Drake tonight, and this is a long standing Toronto showcase that has been serving up cutting edge alternative and independent rock with no cover for decades! Tonight there will be a variety of local bands you should know about, including the hard-rockin' Delusion Manifesto. Elvis never leaves this building!
The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen Street West) 9PM

PHOTOGRAPHY | Seeing Sound
This is could be the tastiest photography exhibit you ever attend! This will be Katie Genaro's first photography show, and will feature footage of Toronto various concerts from 2007 to 2011. The bonus for this one is the venue. Vesuvio's is an Italian joint that has been in the pizza biz since the '50s. They have a unique selection, too, and a must try is their Pizza Bella - could go very nicely with some photos of live music. Bada bing!
Vesuvio Pizzeria and Spaghetti House (3010 Dundas Street West) 11AM

BOOKS & LIT | Professor David Klausner discusses the Canterbury Tales
"The Canterbury Tales" is Geoffrey Chaucer's famous collection of stories, written in Middle English in the late 14th Century. This work is considered one of the most important in the history of English literature, and sheds much light on English society at the time. This is precisely the angle that Professor David Klausner will take with his lecture on this great work: exploring how "The Canterbury Tales" reveals much about the society, politics and culture of its time.
Toronto Public Library @ Deer Park (40 St. Clair Avenue East) 2PM
