Radar: Black Math, Jack White, The Power of Why, Afghan Whigs, The Growlers, Reveal Me at the Rivoli

ART | Black Math
The Steam Whistle Brewery launches Black Math, their October art exhibit, tonight. This curated mixed media collection explores the theme of the supernatural from the angle of 'innocence,' and the way in which our perspective in childhood allows us a glimpse into other worlds, as well as how that portal is relinquished in favour of logic, and the 'rational.' The relationship of these two worlds is examined by the various artists participating in this exhibition, including: Vicki Nerino, Britt Wilson, Roben Nieuwland, Ilichna Morasky, Ty Dunitz, Ale Diaz, Alexei Vella, and Hyein Lee. Black Math runs until the end of the month.
Steam Whistle Brewery (255 Bremner Blvd) 7PM

MUSIC | Jack White
Jack White hits town tonight! Of course, you know White as the genius behind the very popular group The White Stripes, as well as from his "other" bands--The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather are no slouches either. The question on everyone's mind is likely whether White will cut this show short after a mere 45 minutes like he did this past weekend in NYC. White is touring his release Blunderbuss, a solo effort which was released in April.
Sony Centre For The Performing Arts (1 Front Street East) 8PM $45 - 75

BOOKS & LIT | The Power of Why book launch
Well known CBC news correspondent Amanda Lang launches her new book, The Power Of Why. This book discusses the importance of 'questioning' in our day-to-day life and business affairs. Lang demonstrates through anecdotes and research how asking the right question at the right time can lead to both innovation and productivity. This noon-hour event will begin with a discussion with the author led by Kevin O'Leary, and will conclude with a book signing.
CBC Lower Atrium (250 Front Street West) 12PM FREE

VARIETY | Reveal Me at the Rivoli - October Edition
Reveal Me, a monthly TO burlesque show, goes down at The Rivoli tonight. This event aims to showcase new performers every month: both experienced as well as first-timers, and promises a delectable combination of food, drinks and engaging entertainment. Tonight's performers include Ab Horrence, Steve Winchester, Aurora Adora, Judy Virago (of "Babes in Space"), Elle Sugar, singer Madame Poynter, and many more. Miss Conception will be your emcee.
The Rivoli (334 Queen Street West) 8PM $10
