gritty night

Radar: Asteroid Galaxy Tour, Rower's Pub Reading Series, Spiritual Impressions, Trampoline Hall, Elvis Monday

MUSIC | Asteroid Galaxy Tour at the Hoxton
Asteroid Galaxy Tour hit the Hoxton tonight! This Danish band has a poppy sound, but definitely takes the music to many interesting places, both modern and retro. They can thank the late Amy Winehouse for giving them their "big break:" the English singer heard their demo, and recruited them as her opener for a Copenhagen concert. Soon after they had a few of their tunes on high profile commercials for Apple and Heineken — the rest is history! Vacationer opens for them tonight. Should be good!
The Hoxton (69 Bathurst Street) 8:30pm $16.50

BOOKS & LIT | Rower's Pub Reading Series features Carleton Wilson
This regular reading series goes down on the first Monday of every month from October to June, and often showcases established poets and writers with promising talent. The choice of venue is a nice one; Harbord House in the Annex, just a short walk from U of T campus. Tonight, Carleton Wilson will read from his new collection of poetry, entitled "The Material Sublime". Rebecca Rosenblum and Russell Smith will also share some of their work.
Harbord House (150 Harbord Street) 7:30PM

ART | Spiritual Impressions. Work by Michael Stoeber
Artist Michael Stoeber's exhibition "Spiritual Impressions" opens today at Galleria 814. The artist has revealed his working method to be one that begins with an element of randomness and abstraction, that is then meticulously honed and refined as the work develops. Strober's work featured here will revolve around the artist's focus on spirituality, and pieces with titles such as "Yoga and Prayer," and "Sacred Animals" show the artist exploring this theme in society and nature. This exhibition runs until March 3rd.
Galleria 814 (814 St Clair West) 12PM

CULTURE | Trampoline Hall - Erica Kopyto Curates!
Trampoline Hall is back, bent on adding some deeper thoughts to your February fun! This very popular event is an informal lecture series that tackles unconventional subjects, often with a dash of tongue-in-cheek, but always with profound, head-scratching results. This month's guest curator is Erica Kopyto. She has chosen Simone Bern to discuss "not liking music", Samir Khan to lecture on "Tragedy", and Daniel Werb will fill us in on the "multiverse".
The Garrison (1197 Dundas Street West) 7:40PM $5
