Today in Toronto

Today in Toronto: OBEY, Tim Hecker, Oktoberfest, Constantines, Nintendo Knights, Before the Fall

Today in Toronto Obey aka Shepard Fairey, the artist behind the Obama "Hope" posters and those print-outs your skater friends made after hours at school, is in town. You can meet him at Tattoo (567 Queen West), check out his new mural, and get your board signed from 4:30-5:30pm. The AGO's Alex Colville exhibit will host a performance by Polaris-long-listed Montreal ambient composer Tim Hecker at their pre Nuit Blanche First Thursday party.

Tonight and tomorrow at the Danforth Music Hall you can see re-united TO rock band Constantines in a much deserved headlining spot. $5 gets you into Nintendo Knights XX, which fronts as "Toronto's original classic gaming tournament," at Handlebar - NES, SNES, N64? Music (chip tunes to be exact) to retro gamers' ears. For more events, click on over to our events section.
