THINGS TO CHECK OUT THIS WEEK IN GASTOWN

LINDBERG TRUNK SHOW

Pop in to peruse their collection of sleek, sophisticated and classic frame styles. There are still more details to come – for more updates on the upcoming Trunk Show, head to their event page.

GEORGE BAIRD BOOK LAUNCH

GBmain

Inform is hosting a discussion with George Baird in their 50 Water Street showroom on Wednesday, September 30th at 5:30pm on the occasion of the release of his new book Writings on Architecture and the City.

Writings on Architecture and the City is an anthology focusing on his on-going interest in planning and the built environment, something which is particularly manifest in his attention to the city of Toronto, where he is active in architecture, urban design and heritage preservation. The discussion will be moderated by local critic, curator, historian of architecture/urbanism, and consulting urban designer, Trevor Boddy. Q&A period and book signing will follow.

RSVP to info@informinteriors.com. Space is limited.

MEDITATION CLASS WITH CHRISTIE BAUMGARTER

Now that fall is in full swing, most of us are in dire need of rest and relaxation. Instead of hitting the couch, join Nicole Bridger for a meditation class led by Christie Baumgartner on Tuesday September 29th, 7-8pm. This class will be admission by donation for the Strathcona Elementary School. If you’d like to attend, be sure to RSVP to info@nicolebridger.com and bring your own yoga mat.

INTRODUCING COMEDY NIGHTS

If the cloudy weather is inducing a case of September blues, head to Blarney Stone for a good chuckle. Blarney Stone is welcoming aspiring comedians to test their chops at their new open mic comedy nights, hosted by Marathon mic every Tuesday. This night is not for the easily offended. If you want to take a swing at making the crowd laugh, sign ups start at 9pm, and the show curtain opens at 10pm.

LIVE SESSIONS AT M.I.A

GastownMIA

Florida producer Marcel Everett aka XXYYXX is coming to M.I.A. on Thursday October 1st. The 19-year old producer with a distinct moniker has made waves with indie audiophiles for his harmonious electronic music. The upcoming show is part of a new pop up event series dedicated to the ultimate “chilled out” music. Check here for ticket info.

On Saturday October 3rd, DJ/producer, Sian will spin live at M.I.A. Sian is regularly appearing at the world’s most respected clubs and festivals in Europe, Asia, Australia and beyond. Schooling heaving crowds, Sian brings his trademark experimental DJing style to the masses via multiple outputs of explosive techno, combined with FX and loops cut on the fly. His modern techno mixes are a little more bohemian than the average electronic talent. Come see for yourself – event details here.
