One of Chicago’s finest, Kid Sister makes her return to Toronto at Wrongbar this Friday. Ever since landing the cover of Urb’s Next 1000 issue, Kid Sister’s career has been moving firmly in the fast lane. She landed a Kanye cameo for her debut video Pro Nails and she’s already proven that she can rock a Toronto crowd. Kid Sister will be joined by Ottawa’s Jokers of the Scene and local favourite Nasty Nav.
This Saturday marks the first Shake a Tail at Clinton’s Tavern. After spending the majority of the past two years pleasing crowds at Stone’s Place, the 60’s dance party moves north from Queen to Bloor. In addition to playing the finest of 60s rock, Shake a Tail will now be a weekly event.
When people think of dance music, they very rarely think of country. However, Saddle Up! not only shows that country and dancing can go together but that it should. Line dancing goes down this Saturday at the cozy Canadian Corps Legion Hall.
