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 […]

Our contributors filled their weekend with Toronto Fringe Festival performances, trying to see as many of the most buzzed-about shows as possible. We reviewed eight shows on Friday and nine shows on Saturday—and here’s another nine shows we saw on Sunday.
As our team of contributors works its way through the 150+ shows at the Toronto Fringe Festival, they’re finding both the diamonds in the rough, and the… other parts of the rough (including our first no-star rated show.) Here’s our latest batch of reviews; for all reviews to date, see our Fringe Festival page.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Each week, Torontoist examines the upcoming TV listings and makes note of programs that are entertaining, informative, and of quality. Or, alternately, none of those. The result: Televisualist.
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 […]
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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
Some Canadian towns have prohibited all retail stores from providing customers with single-use plastic carryout (shopping) bags, urging customers to bring their own bags or boxes instead. 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: […]
