Today in Toronto is the very-much-sold-out Metallica concert at the Opera House. So instead of stressing out over getting into that show, why not concentrate on the other cool things happening in the city? Most notably, the Stevie Nicks show at the ACC. The mystical matron of pop brings her biggest hits to the massive venue for one night only.
Witch queen Stevie Nicks will bring out special guests The Pretenders for the Toronto stop of her 24 Karat Gold Tour. The Fleetwood Mac songstress has more hits than you even realize and along with Vancouver, this is the only Canadian stop on her North American tour.
Toronto’s jello shot champion will be crowned tonight. Sophie Jones, JMKM and Gimmemar DJ alongside kitschy 50s style canapés and cheap drinks. All the proceeds from this live jello shooter cocktail competition will be donated to Nellies Women’s Shelter.

One of 2016’s it-girls headlines her own show. You probably know the Danish pop thing from her guest vocals on Major Lazer’s “Lean On,” and if you don’t, her electro pop vibe and sound are the perfect pick me up for a Tuesday night.
This cross-Canada touring comedy showcase features some of the country’s best LGBT comedians. Co-headliners DeAnne Smith, and Chantel Marostica are joined by an army of funny, queer folks and as a bonus, there’s a dance party right after.
