Radar: Casey Veggies, Travis Scott, Gifts Of My Hands Summer Markets, Early Monthly Segments
Toronto events on May 27th, 2013
MUSIC | Casey Veggies, Travis Scott in Toronto
Casey Veggies hits Wrongbar tonight. This young US rapper from the Inglewood area in LA has made quite a name for himself since coming onto the scene five or six years ago. Before graduating high school, Casey Veggies had worked with Young Gangsta from Def Jam, putting him on the radar in the rap community. Touring with Mac Miller also helped spread word of his skills. Several mixtapes later, and having worked with Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa, and Tyler the Creator, he is definitely a happening musical presence, and will be sharing some material from his latest Life Changes mixtape at tonight's show. Producer/rapper Travis Scott from Houston is on the bill, as well.
WRONGBAR (1279 Queen Street West) 8PM $18
MARKETPLACE | Gifts Of My Hands Summer Markets
A special handmade marketplace will be running the last Monday of every month throughout the Summer at Sorauren Park, while the Organic Market is underway. A group of artisans will be displaying their wares in the adjacent field house, and this craft market promises a wide variety of goods for sale: visual art, woodworking, jewelry, ceramics, organic beauty products and more - all made by hand. "Gifts Of My Hands" runs for the same hours as the Organic Market, from 3 PM to 7 PM, so be sure to check it out today, or when it returns on June 24th, July 29th or August 26th.

FILM | EARLY MONTHLY SEGMENTS #51 - TRANSITIONS
Early Monthly Segments is a monthly film event that screens underground and experimental films from past and present, curated by Scott Berry, Chris Kennedy, and Kate MacKay, and presented in their original (often 16mm) format. This evening's event will present five films that employ "transition" either as a psychological device or as part of formal structure. Films to be shown tonight are: Michael Robinson's 2003 film, Chiquitita and the Soft Escape; Stan Brakhage's In Between from 1955, with music by John Cage; Barbara Sternberg's 1982 film, Transitions; Matthias MĂźller's Pensao Globo produced in 1997; and the most recent of the bunch, Fern Silva's 2011 work, Passage Upon the Plume.
