The Todd sisters, exceptionally talented in their respective creative fields of fashion (Leilanni) and music (Maylee), guest on this month’s Interaction series for creative thinkers, hosted by the Lunch collective. Maylee, who just played a showcase at CMW, often wears costumes and outfits on stage and in her videos that are created by her sister; in turn, she’s often been a model for Leilanni, who’s been profiled as a designer by the Globe and Mail and Fashion magazine. The sisters will talk about their collaborative creative work in the past, present, and future.
ECW Press kicks off its spring publishing season with a Spring Literary Party, which will have a half-dozen of their recent authors in attendance, including former Torontoist contributor Suzannah Showler, author of Failure to Thrive; the Grid‘s film critic Adam Nayman, author of It Doesn’t Suck: Showgirls; and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle super-fan Richard Rosenbaum, author of Raise Some Shell.
Spring is sprung, Torontonians are leaving their homes again, and shows like Laughable are returning so you can drink and laugh in the company of others. Co-hosts Nick Flanagan and Steph Tolev have a pretty strong lineup for their first stand-up showcase of 2014, including Laugh Sabbath’s Tim Gilbert, the jolly Arthur Simeon, and unauthorized jingle crooner Marty Topps.
