  • 5 p.m.

Photojournalist David Burnett was on assignment in Jamaica in 1976 when he first met Bob Marley and photographed him for Time magazine. A follow-up story a year later for Rolling Stone yielded more shots of the reggae icon, but only a couple of the pics were published. “Bob Marley: Soul Rebel” is an exhibit based around Burnett’s book of the same title, and Burnett will be on hand for a 5 p.m. signing session at the opening, with music by DJ Brett Millius to follow.

Big Smoke Festival

  • The Garrison (1197 Dundas Street West)
  • 5 p.m.

Last year’s Big Smoke Festival was a little too successful: the combination of craft beer and buzz-worthy local bands drew packed, noisy crowds, and fest producer Tallboys Craft Beer House ended up with a few irate neighbours. So for the third annual edition, Tallboys has teamed up with live music venue the Garrison to present two nights of rock ‘n’ suds. The afternoons (from 5 p.m. onward) will feature tastings of nine different Ontario brewers (a ticket includes a tasting glass and two drink tickets), and from 9 p.m. onwards both nights, bands like, Army Girls, and Warm Myth will take the stage.
