Summer is all but done. The sun’s gone into hiding. Sure, the Film Festival is going strong, but when Brad Pitt leaves, what’s left? Evenings of studying, or, worse, working, reminiscing about how much you miss studying? Another long, depressing winter?
Torontoist is here to fight off the onslaught of your Seasonal Affective Disorder with what will certainly be the best party ever – awesome bands, wicked prizes, ridiculously attractive readers and staff members, and pins! Glorious pins!
For bands, we’ve got three great acts: Dollarama, who play music using dollar store instruments; Idiots!, who mess with the barriers between electronic and organic sounds; and The Ghost is Dancing, who will woo us with indie rock. Wes Allen, whose latest credentials include work on the DJ Cyber-Rap album, is spinning for the night.
We’ve got interviews with Dollarama and Wes, and with Idiots! and The Ghost is Dancing – and you know that you want them.
Also prizes from: Six Shooter Records, the Art Gallery of Ontario, Penguin Canada, Arts and Crafts, Sonic Unyon, CBC Radio 3 (including a Sirius Satellite Radio with one-year subscription) and more.
* The “Back to School” theme is just us being cheeky. You don’t have to wear backpacks.
** Sincere apologies to our younger readers who are in school non-ironically. Torontoist still loves you.
