MUSIC | JUNO Concert Series
An amazing lineup of music tonight as Lula Lounge presents their JUNO concert series.

Tonight's lineup includes fusion ensemble Jaffa Road, The Good Lovelies, The Lemon Bucket Orchestra, Jaron Freeman-Fox, Scarlett Jane, Jory Nash, Brenna MacCrimmon, Shakura S'Aida, and Steve Strongman.

MUSIC | Sky Ferreira & How To Dress Well at Wrongbar
Sky Ferreira hits Wrongbar tonight. Ferreira is a quadruple threat: singer, songwriter, model and actress, whose tune "Everything Is Embarrassing" was named as one of the best of 2012 by a number of happening publications and blogs. This LA native has two EPs under her belt, and her first full length, I'm Not Alright, is due out next month. Also on tonight's bill is How To Dress Well, the musical moniker of Tom Krell, an American-born, Germany-based producer, whose two albums, Love Remains, and Total Loss have earned consistent kudos from P4K, Stereogum and other notable music sites.
Wrongbar (1279 Queen Street West) 7PM $15
THEATRE | ShakesBeer
An interesting evening awaits you at Wychwood Barns tonight. You could think of it as a "crash course" in the works of William Shakespeare.... with beer. Yes, that's right: the Bard and brewskies. Charles Roy directs The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged, which incorporates all thirty-seven plays into an 87 minute performance starring Matt Drappel, Jeff Hanson, and Kevin Ritchie. Several brewers, including Denison's and Beau's will be participating in this event, as well, to give you a wonderful choice of beverages to accompany your immersion into Elizabethan theatre.
Wychwood Barns (601 Christie Street) 6:30PM and 9:30PM $25
ART | All That Sparkles
"All That Sparkles" is an exhibition featuring the work of Sam Mogelonsky. Mogelonsky is a Toronto-based artist whose work focuses on sculptures and installation, often using objects and figures that embody a sense of humour or play, but are being put to more serious work on closer examination. In this exhibit, various objects adorned with sharp pins reveal danger within pretty patterns, and a sinister edge can be found in playful and ornate pieces. Mogelonsky also works as Art Concierge at TO's Hazelton Hotel, and writes about art and deign for the blog Indecent Xposure. "All That Sparkles" runs until April 20th.
The Red Head Gallery (401 Richmond Street West, Suite 115) 12 to 5PM
