MUSIC | U.S. Girls
Tonight at Double Double Land Megan Remy (a.k.a. U.S. Girls) will celebrate her new record Free Advice Column, which features "story songs for the new millennium." Never miss a chance to see world-touring Remy throw down — the way her severe soul / pop vocals mesh with noise and melody is one of the most compelling and intelligent live music experiences the contemporary underground has to offer. The new album is beat heavy and hypnotic, with the usual twisted soul. Recent U.S. Girls producer Onakabazien is also on the bill, plus Street Nar, Ice Cream, and DJs Slim Twig and Daniel Vila. Double Double Land (209 Augusta Ave,) Thursday, November 7, 9 pm, $8.
ART | CONDOMAXIUMâ„¢: Another Project By Tough Guy Mountain
If you live in Toronto you probably do some serious thinking about condos. Tough Guy Mountain wants you to come down to OCAD to see some condo themed digital-age art. TGM asks: "What type of condo are you looking for? What is your price range? Are you an agent? Are you thinking of Condos to move-up? How many bathrooms do you need? What features are you looking for? What amount of square footage interests you?" Looks to be a good and weird opening. OCAD U Student Gallery (52 McCaul Street,) Thursday, November 7 - Saturday, November 30, free.

ARTS | Berenson Fine Arts Presents 'Sanctuary'
