If you enjoy biking in the city (and of course you do) then get your wheels tuned up and join in Ward 29 Bikes’ weekly summer series, Thursday Night Rides. Here, you’ll have an opportunity to spin around neighbourhoods you might not normally explore on your own while getting to meet other like-minded cycling citizens. Be sure to check out their website for the starting point and schedule (also to get confirmation that the ride’s still a go due to weather, etc.).
The AGO’s insanely popular First Thursdays is back for another night of music in the art gallery. This edition features feminist art rock band, Vag Halen, who’ll also be joined by Light Fires, and a DJ set by the Mighty Real DJs. Besides the music, there will be pop-up talks about artworks in the AGO, a chance to get into some karaoke, and so much more. Act fast with tickets, though; every First Thursday night has sold out since the event started.
Canadian indie music label, Arts & Crafts, are celebrating their tenth anniversary. As part of the celebrations, they’re showing a new exhibition from Toronto photographer, Norman Wong. The exhibition features images of various artists over the years including Feist, Kevin Drew, Emily Haines, and many more. You’ll be able to buy a book of photography there and a portion of the proceeds from the event will go to Testicular Cancer Canada and MusiCounts.
