Radar: Allison Brown, musicians Nancy Dutra & Willow Rutherford, photographer Jeremy Mimnagh, and the eh List Author Series with Michel Tremblay

MUSIC | Allison Brown, Nancy Dutra & Willow Rutherford Songs & Stories
Allison Brown, Nancy Dutra, and Willow Rutherford are three singers who found a great blend, and a natural chemistry together last year around this time, when they did a short tour from T.O to Montreal with a few small town stops along the way. Their love of great songs and great stories won them many friends and fans on that particular excursion, and they're doing it again. Tonight launches this short tour, and they will be hitting Campbellford, Perth, and Ottawa before doing the final show in Montreal. The group's sound is rooted in roots, jazz, gospel, cabaret, and folk. Come to the Tranzac tonight and give them a send off to remember!
The Tranzac (292 Brunswick Avenue) 7:30PM PWYC

PHOTOGRAPHY | Jeremy Mimnagh at hub14
Tonight at hub14, the launch of photographer Jeremy Mimnagh's exhibition, "Nothing Out Of The Ordinary Happened" goes down. Mimnaugh is a Toronto-based artist who is fascinated by the concept of "motion," and uses photography, projections, and sound in his work. This exhibition is a photographic one, and centers around photos captured during a period spent in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. There will also be performances by Cathy Gordon, Meagan O' Shea, Heidi Strauss, and Kate Hilliard at tonight's launch. This show runs until this Saturday, May 26th.

BOOKS & LIT | The eh List Author Series - Author Michel Tremblay
Michel Tremblay will appear this evening at the North York Central Library Auditorium to discuss and read from his latest work, "Crossing the Continent," a Canadian tale set in 1913, with 10-year old RhĂŠauna as the novel's protagonist. This novel is the first in what is to be a "historical trilogy." This evening's event is part of the Eh List Author series, which gathers Canadian authors for readings and book signings at seven different Toronto libraries across the city.
North York Central Library Auditorium (5120 Yonge Street) 7PM

ART | Cc: me
Elaine Whittaker's "Cc: me" installation launches this afternoon at The Red Head Gallery. This is a multi-media work in the truest sense of the word, with the installation utilizing sketches on fax paper, sound, live bacteria, and more. Observations on the relationships between language and the human body, politics, commercialism, and many other issues are explored in this oeuvre. Local poets Julie Roorda, Jim Johnstone, Ruth Roach Pierson and Larry Sulky contribute responses to these issues and the work itself, along with sound artist Tom Auger.
The Red Head Gallery (115 - 401 Richmond Street West) 12PM
