Toronto events on November 18th, 2013
FILM | Early Monthly Segments #57 = Alfred Guzzetti
Tonight, Early Monthly Segment returns to The Gladstone Hotel with a screening of experimental cinema, shown in its original format. This evening's selection is Alfred Guzzetti's Family Portrait Sittings, a feature-length film film he made in 1975, after winning a prize for his short film, Air at the 1972 Chicago Film Festival. Family Portrait Sittings premiered at the Whitney Museum of American Art, and is a complex and often mysterious autobiographical work that will be shown in all its 16mm glory this evening. Gladstone Hotel, Art Bar (1214 Queen Street West) 8PM PWYC ($5 suggested).
MUSIC | Gary Clark Jr @ The Danforth Music Hall
Gary Clark Jr. hits TO tonight for a much anticipated show at The Danforth Music Hall. The music world has been buzzing for quite a while about this "new", fuzzy voice on the electric guitar, coming from the direction of the blues. Several notable live appearances helped spread the word about this guitar and vocal talent, most notably the Newport Folk Festival, Coachella, and the 2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival where he played with Eric Clapton, John Mayer and others. Should be a good one. The Danforth Music Hall (147 Danforth Avenue) 7PM $29.50.
FUNDRAISER | Get Out & Play
Tonight, the annual "Get Out & Play" fundraiser for Parkdale's Family Resource Centre happens at Parts & Labour. There will be a silent auction, and prizes that appear with a balloon pop that could offer you a Lindt basket, a sizeable ski voucher, Raptors tickets, and more. Saxophonist Neil Brathwaite will be providing a soundtrack for this event, and comic Melissa Story will make sure that some laughs are part of your evening. Parts and Labour (1566 Queen Street West) $10.
BOOKS & LIT | Garry Thomas Morse + Daniel Canty And Oana Avasilichioaei + Lola Lemire Tostevin
