Toronto events on June 4th, 2013
FOOD | Shilin Snack Shack
Influenced by the night markets of Asia, Shilin Snack Shack will serve up easy-to-eat foods from 10PM until 1:30AM again tonight. Following yesterday's snack shack set-up, the featured foods of tonight's Shilin will be fried chicken, cold noodle bowls, barbequed skewers and Chinese pancake wraps. The snack shack will pop up following Chef Matthew Sullivan's six-course tasting menu of Taiwanese-inspired foods ($70 through Boxed Toronto's eventbrite page). The Shilin Snack Shack takes place at Happy Child with all foods ranging in price from $3-$7. Bring your pocket change--this event is cash only.
Happy Child (1168 Queen Street West) 10PM Free
MUSIC | Album Release Tuesday: Queens of the Stone Age
Albums are released on Tuesdays and The Beaver is the place to experience a Tuesday proper. Playing one new album in full each Album Release Tuesday, The Beaver is inviting fans and those who are generally okay to party on a weeknight to experience the songs from Queens of the Stone Age sixth studio album ...Like Clockwork. The album will be played in full and a DJ will play a set inspired by the band while the bar sells cheap beers ($3.50-$4). If that doesn't get you, there will be a Super Nintendo system hooked up to a projector.
The Beaver (1192 Queen Street West) 11PM Free
FILM | Scarborough Film Festival
With a goal of enhancing the Scarborough cultural scene through film, the Scarborough Film Festival is a six-day showcase of Canadian and world cinema that takes place in the (far) east end rep cinemas. Opening tonight at Fox Theatre, the festival begins with the Toronto premiere of the French/Estonian feature A Lady In Paris and Canadian short Chance. With a strong schedule of 17 films and a jury that includes Sudz Sutherland, Karen Bruce, and Eli Glasner, this festival has chops and is definitely worth the trek outside the city.
Fox Theatre (2236 Queen Street East) 6:30PM $20
MUSIC | Rachael Yamagata
American singer-songwriter and total babe Rachael Yamagata has released three studio albums and five EPs but somehow is not a household name. Her music has been everywhere for the last ten years and tonight is the perfect chance to experience her live. Playing at the Mod Club, you can watch the indie alternative musician perform and learn more about her musical style tonight as there are plenty of tickets left through Ticketweb.
Virgin Mobile Mod Club (722 College Street) 7PM $16.50
