A round up of the best/weirdest things to do this weekend in Toronto…
Friday December 16th
No Wave legend James Chance dropped out of the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music to move to New York and fell in love with free jazz and punk. He played in such bands as Teenage Jesus and the Jerks and James Chance and the Contortions. Unlike most in the No Wave scene Chance possessed a certain amount of proficiency and demanded the same from his band members.

The folks at Hard Luck Bar (772A Dundas St. W) want to say a big F.U. to hunger this holiday season. On Saturday if you bring a non-perishable food item you’re in for free. otherwise it’s $5 that goes straight to the Daily Bread Food Bank. Of course the night is about more than saying !f#*k hunger, it’s also about seeing some local bands. The Murder Squad T.O., Sista Fista, You Handsome Devil, Quarter Tank, Triamazikamno, and the Scumbally’s all take the stage. That’s a lot of bands for a can of kidney beans, or a box of noodles.
