Radar: Only In Dreams, Sum 41, Clocks & Colours Launch, Childhood Favourites Supper Club, Two One-Act Plays by Norm Foster

ART | Only In Dreams
The word "dream" invites many interpretations, 25 of which will be on display tonight at Studio 407. A large group of artists band together for Only In Dreams, a multimedia exploration of the term through illustration, photography, audio, video, sculpture and installation. Personal works representing the subconscious and conscious mind will fill the gallery loft space at the opening reception, where all alcohol sales and donations will go directly to Arts For Children and Youth. The gallery will be open for public viewing at this evening's fĂŞte and from 12-5PM, Friday through Sunday.
Studio 407 (263 Adelaide Street, Studio 407) 7PM Donations accepted

MUSIC | Sum 41
It's been 11 years since Ajax boys Sum 41 came on to the scene and if that doesn't make you feel old, then the fact that they are playing a 10th anniversary show at the Phoenix tonight should. The pop punk band headlines a show, playing songs from the past 11 years and 5 albums, including 2011's Screaming Bloody Murder. Alt rock band IAmDynamite will open. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster, Union Events, Rotate This, and Soundscapes.
Phoenix Concert Theatre (410 Sherbourne Street) 7PM $24.50 ADVANCE

FASHION | Clocks & Colours Launch
Toronto jewelry line Vitaly Design celebrates the release of their latest collection, a high-grade ceramic selection of minimalist rings, with an epic party at LeVack Block tonight. The first 100 people will get in with a $5 cover ($10 for every person after that) to join the designers in commemorating the occasion. 4 DJs will be playing tech and house music throughout the venue at this after-party, which is open to the public.

FOOD | Childhood Favourites Supper Club
Childhood favourites to please an adult palate are on the menu at the Foodies on Foot Studio for tonight's supper club gathering. A large sit-down meal provided by award-winning Chef Robyn Goorevitch will be served as FOF provides childhood nostalgia through the the little details. Items on the menu include PB&J Sandwiches with Foie Gras Mousse and Almond Butter, Lobster and Orzo Macaroni and Cheese, and Pigs In A Blanket with Duck Orange Sausages.

The king of comedy theatre, Norm Foster, brings two one-act plays to the Annex this evening with The Death of Me and My Narrator.

Tickets are offered at a discounted rate for Thursday shows and will be available at the door.
Tranzac Stage (292 Brunswick Avenue) 8PM $12
