Looking For A Place T.O. Happen, September 20, 21 & 22

Still Life Still are holding the release party for their new album Mourning Trance at The Garrison on September 20. Tickets are $12.

I am planning on attending the gig plus it’s my birthday weekend so if you’d like come and hang out, considering it an unofficial h@tb get-together, I’ll be at Red Light (1185 Dundas St. W) for pre-drinks around 8’ish. Red Light is a very cool little bar with friendly staff and a great atmosphere. At first blush, it looks like your typical Ossington hipster bar but the vibe is more laid back, friendly neighbourhood bar you can hang out at and enjoy a few drinks with friends.

September 21 sees Toronto alt-country stalwarts The Sadies rolling into The Garrison with Shadowy Men From a Shadowy Planet, TV Freaks and Legato Vipers for an Alice Cooper tribute night. Tix are $10 at the door.

There’s also a killer gig at Central, check out the flyer below for deets;

Or, head a couple blocks east to Measure for an equally awesome gig. Check out the flyer below;

The Bloor Ossington Folk Festival is running this weekend, September 20 to 22, at venues along the Bloor/Ossington strip. The three day free festival features a variety of acts including h@tb favourites Little Foot Long Foot and catl as well as The Golden Dogs, Minotaurs, Grand Analog, Sandman Viper Command and many more.
