Tonight, the Red Bull Thre3style World Final DJ Championship launches with a welcome party at The Drake Hotel. This competition began in 2007, and brings some of the world's best DJs together, and puts them head-to-head, and judged not only on their technical skills and musical taste, but their ability to move a crowd on the dancefloor. 21 uber-talented DJs from various global locales will compete, and this event will go on throughout the week at different venues around town, including The Hoxton, The Mod Club, The Danforth Music Hall, and things conclude Saturday at Kool Haus. Read our preview here. The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen Street West) 9PM

FASHION | Modern Man - Men's Fashion Week
Toronto Fashion Week may have ended last week, but the womenswear-dominated event meant menswear didn't get much time to shine. Next week, from Monday (November 4) until Wednesday (November 6), Uniun (473 Adelaide St W) will be home to Modern Man, the city's first men's fashion week open to the public. Runway shows by seven designers including Canada's own Christopher Bates and Roots will be taking plus, plus local designer pop-up shops and complimentary straight razor shaves by Mankind Grooming Studio. Ticket proceeds will benefit Movember. Union Fashion District, November 4 - 6 $20 - $130

CULTURE | Trampoline Hall
Trampoline Hall returns to The Garrison tonight! In case you are new to this very popular, long-standing lecture series, the idea here is the gathering of a handful of experts, each delivering a short talk on a subject deliberately chosen to be outside of their area of expertise. The results range from the sublime to the ridiculous, and are always surprising. Tonight's speakers are: Kim North, filling us in on "Kindergarten", Sam Cotter, on "Urban Strategies for Howling Into the Void", and Derek Leebosh speaking about "The Travel Bug". Trampoline Hall is hosted by Misha Glouberman. The Garrison (1197 Dundas Street West) 7:30PM $5

FILM | Sherlock Jr. & Friends - Silent Film Event
The Toronto Theatre Organ Society presents a unique evening of silent comedy shorts tonight at Casa Loma in conjunction with the Toronto Silent Film Festival. This is as old school as it gets when it comes to a night out at the movies, and this screening of comedic silent films will feature Sherlock, Jr, a story of a smitten wannabe detective starring Buster Keaton. Tonight's films will be accompanied by keyboardist Steven Ball, an in exactly the same fashion that organists used to do in the original silent film era. Casa Loma (1 Austin Terrace) 8PM $20
