GRASSHOPPER RECORDS IN-STORE | 1167 Dundas W
It’s okay if you’ve never heard of Grasshopper Records; they just opened. In a time when record stores are closing along Queen maybe Dundas is the place to take them. If you’re interested in checking it out now is the time. Saturday’s in-store will see performances from Carl Didur (see video), Sailboats Are White and Steve Kado.
5:30PM, cheap drinks, 1167 Dundas West

WILD RUMPUS FOR MAURICE SENDAK | Souraren Park
What used to be called Totstock is now the Little City Festival and in collaboration with The Little Paper Rooster Studio they’re holding a Wild Rumpus in Sorauren Park to honor the hugely loved and influential children’s storybook author and illustrator Maurice Sendak. A litany of Toronto KidsLit authors will be at the park reading their own works as well as Sendak’s Where The Wild Things Are and The Night Kitchen.
The Wild Rumpus itself wont begin until Kevin Sylvester has hollered “Let the Wild Rumpus Begin” at 4:30.
2-5PM, Souraren & Wabash Ave
