today in Toronto

Today in Toronto: Last El Mocambo show, Reel Asian, ArtAttack, Planet in Focus, Tanya Tagaq, Mac DeMarco

Today in Toronto it would have been your very last chance to see a show at the El Mocambo, however with the El Mo it seems nothing is ever final (phew). The El Mocambo might be saved from redevelopment and continue as a live music venue, according to a report in the National Post. A new buyer has entered the picture at the very last minute, one who is apparently interested in continuing the legacy of the iconic venue. Read more here.

The Toronto Reel Asian Film Festival and the environmentally themed Planet in Focus also kick off today, joining several ongoing film fests around the city. 2014's Polaris Prize winner Tanya Tagaq is sold out, so I hope a nice pal with an extra ticket will take you. If that fails, fellow nominee Mac DeMarco is playing in town as well. Buddies in Bad Times' ArtAttack charity auction is also tonight. For more events, click on over to our events section.
