The top 5 free events in Toronto: November 9-15 2015

The top free events in Toronto this week offer a healthy dose of live music. On Monday the Horseshoe Tavern will host three bands for their weekly Shoeless Monday event. If that's not enough, Great Lake Swimmers will also play a free set on the east side on Sunday. Rather skip concerts all together? There's plenty of window shopping to be done and a comedy show.

Here's what to do if you're saving up for a much deserved vacation.

Shoeless Monday (November 9)
Kick off your week with a free live show. This Monday, Ned & The Dirt, Cat and the Queen, and Geary St. Groove Band will take to the stage at the Horseshoe Tavern. If you can't make it out on Monday, the venue also hosts Dave Bookman's Nu Music Night every Tuesday, which is also a no cover event.

MEGA CRAZY CRAZY FRENZY (November 10)
Head to The Garrison on Tuesday for a cost-free comedy show. Quinn C. Martin, Massimo, Aisha Brown, Asaf Gerchak, Meg Mackay, Kelly De Hoop, and Brian Ward will be providing the laughs for the evening.

Bellwoods Flea (November 14)
This Saturday, the Bellwoods Flea is back and promises a bevy of art, fashion, food and more from its vendors. If you're not in the mood to window shop, there will be classic film screenings all day long and retro video games. Dogs are welcome, so feel free to bring your four-legged friend.

2015 Indie Literary Market (November 14)
Indie publishers and authors will congregate at the Tranzac Club on Saturday selling chapbooks, magazines and broadsheets that you won't be able to get your hands on in stores. If you don't feel like dropping any cash, it still makes for a much more interesting day of window shopping than heading to the Eaton Centre.

Great Lake Swimmers (November 15)
If you're a fan of Great Lake Swimmers , you'll want to be at the Leslieville Common Sort this Sunday. The band released their newest album, A Forest Of Arms earlier this year and will be playing through their new material. Make sure you arrive early, as the shop is smaller than your average venue.
