Central & Remote: Movember 18th-20th

A round up of the best/weirdest things to do this weekend in Toronto

Friday November 18th


Steamwhistle Brewery (255 Bremner Blvd) hosts the Queen’s Players Toronto, a troupe that puts on drunken alt-rock-pop musicals in the tradition of Queen’s University comedy cabaret. The event is one of many across the city in support of Movember, but if you don’t have a ticket already I’ve got bad news for you; like all QPT events this one sold out.

Wavelength, like other Toronto area blogs, pays tribute to the 20th anniversary of the release of My Bloody Valentine’s second studio album Loveless. At the Garrison (1197 Dundas St W) for $10 (or pay-what-you-can) hear So Much Sorry (Mean Red Spiders122 Greige) play the album in it’s entirety. Also hear from “space symphonists” Flowers of Hell who opened for MBV on their reunion tour. You may know Flowers from Hell for the 40-minute opus “O” he played at Yonge and Dundas Square this past summer as part of the INTERsection Festival.

About Yuli Scheidt

Yuli was born at the exact moment in 1986 when the Challenger Space Shuttle exploded and rained down on the ocean. As a child she believed this meant she was destined for greatness in the realm of space travel and radioastronomy. Nothing remotely as awesome as that has happened so far. Instead Yuli, at the age of 18, relocated from Calgary to Ottawa where she studied photography, life sciences and graphic design before moving to Toronto. [More by Yuli]
