A round up of the best/weirdest things to do this weekend in Toronto
Friday November 25th
Dance Yourself to Death are back after a year on hiatus with a new EP and European tour dates. Joining them for this send off show and in Europe will be Light Fires, the synthier, sexier, side project of Arts & Crafts recording artist Gentleman Reg. The Garrison $10, 8PM.
Saturday November 26th
From the people who brought you “Holy Boobies Batman!” and “Marvelesque” comes another nerd-themed burlesque event from the Underground Peepshow (who just launched their very sexy 2012 calendar). The Evil League of Sexy promises villains who will become nearly nude. Tickets are $10 in advance, and $13 at the door at the Toronto Underground Cinema. In support of Movember there will be a mustache painting booth and also door prizes from some awesome sponsors including Eyesore Cinema and If You Fall Photography and the Condom Shack.
Sunday November 27th
Toronto cartoonist and illustrators took their turns at drawing the iconic boy reporter Tintin, showing off their interpretation of a classic as part of Toronto Draws Tintin. These efforts have been on display at the Steamwhistle Brewery for the past month but Sunday sees the show come to a close with a party and silent auction with proceeds going to the Canadian Comic League Legal Defense Fund. Presented by the Beguiling participating artists included Steve Wolfhard, Britt Wilson, Brian Fukushima, Chester Brown, Zach Worton, and Michael DeForge just to name a few.
In attendance will be French cartoonist Stanislas for the English-language launch of the graphic novel biography of Tintin’s creator Hergé, The Adventures of Hergé which has been published by Montréal’s Draw & Quarterly. Copies are available at the Beguiling now, but stop by after 7PM for this free event and maybe get your copy signed by the man himself.
