Liveblog: Debating OneCity and the Future of Transit in Toronto

At City Hall this afternoon: another chapter in the long story of council’s vexed relationship with transit planning, as councillors debate several motions that have to do with establishing long-term transit priorities and the funding thereof. Today’s debate is sparked by the OneCity transit plan unveiled a couple of weeks ago by TTC Chair Karen […]

Sound Advice: Piss Suit by Caiiro Foster

One doesn’t necessarily expect grace and subtlety from an EP named Piss Suit, by a punk band that’s named after a professional skateboarder. That said, local art punks Caiiro Foster don’t really specialize in doing what’s expected of them, and their new release—which is indeed named Piss Suit—has both grace and subtlety in spades. The […]

Off The Wall: SPUD

The art world has had its share of dustups. Matisse and Picasso were known to quarrel; a tormented Van Gogh took a swipe at Gauguin with a razorblade. Inevitably, practitioners in every artistic genre will clash. Graffiti writers are no different. Biting, or copying another writer’s style, can arouse the ire, as does crossing out—when […]

Sound Advice: …EP by Beta Frontiers

It’s not surprising that the term chillwave was coined by the minds behind the parody-blog Hipster Runoff. Much like no one will admit to being a hipster, very few artists seem to actually want to be called chillwave, which makes a certain amount of sense. It’s a ridiculous word. Toronto’s Beta Frontiers, for example, make […]

The Princess of Pot in the Big Smoke

In a city that plays host to many thousands of marijuana-rights activists annually at the Toronto Global Marijuana March, the 420 smoke-in, and, most recently, the Treating Yourself Expo, it might seem hard to fathom that people are doing hard time for marijuana-related crimes. “The war on drugs has always been worse in the United […]

Sound Advice: XVIII by Devon Tracy

In a way, you have to be impressed by local rapper Devon Tracy’s latest mixtape, XVIII, before you even listen to it. A lot of rappers release multiple mixtapes in a year, but very few drop two free-to-web, album-quality releases within a few months of each other. As with so many modern hip-hop mixtapes, XVIII […]

Telephone Booth Takeover

A brightly coloured chalk drawing reflecting the day’s forecast and a familiar saying, at the base of the booth. Geometric paneling, reminiscent of a stained-glass window, surrounding those who enter to make a call. A large, white wrapping covering the entire structure, with the words “Transformation Booth” replacing “Telephone Booth.” Those are just a few […]

Tod Machover Crowdsources a Symphony

First, a viola. Then, a bassoon. One by one, before a modest crowd gathered for Moses Znaimer’s IdeaCity conference at Koerner Hall, eight members of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra debuted their contributions to a symphonic framework laid out by composer, MIT Media Lab founder, and Guitar Hero mastermind Tod Machover. Machover, as it turns out, […]

Vandalist: Take Us to Your Leader

BY: Unknown LOCATION: Dundas Street West and Brock Avenue PHOTO BY: Bella Manu FIELD NOTES: Is it just us, or do these creatures look a little like rejected mascots for IKEA and McDonald’s? Maybe they’re a throwback to the ’70s, when drugs must have played a role in character design (how else do you explain […]

NXNE 2012 Reviews: Wednesday

Forget compasses, GPS, or helpful Sherpas. From June 11 to 17, Torontoist is here to be your guide to everything NXNE. The first night of NXNE may have got off to a bumpy start, with the sudden cancellation of the hip-hop showcase at The Rivoli, but thankfully a night full of strong performances helped make […]

Poll Position: Canadians Support Plastic Bag Ban

Would you support or oppose banning plastic shopping bags in your own city or town? Support: 58% Oppose: 39% Not sure: 3% Support for a ban from… Ontarians: […]
