Today: a silkscreen exhibition, day two of a mini music festival, and laugh it up with a comedy show.
ART: Ever heard of silk screening? Back in October, over 40 participants took part in a 24-hour party where random words were chosen out of a hat to act as inspiration during a screenprinting marathon. Now, here’s your chance to see the results. Attendees will witness what happens when word combinations like “Björk Muffin Beard,” “Ghastly Asshole Teacher,” or “Beer Donkey Rescue” are put in image form. Hashtag Gallery (801 Dundas Street West), opening reception 7 p.m.–11:30 p.m., FREE.
MUSIC: If there’s a musical void in your holiday life, don’t forget about the five-day mini festival going on over at the Drake. What’s In The Box 2012 (which is a pretty clever title, this being Boxing Week and all) brings together five bands each night. Tonight’s lineup includes Foxes in Fiction, Jesse Futerman, and Ark Analog, among others. The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen Street West), 8 p.m., $5.
COMEDY: Laugh Sabbath returns for another Thursday of good old fashioned comedy, with host Sara Hennessey and performers Nick Flanagan, Bob Kerr, Boyd Banks, Alana Johnston, and Jordan Cohen. Comedy Bar (945 Bloor Street West), 9:30 p.m., $5.
