Urban Planner: July 24, 2008

20080724urbanplanner2.jpgSPORTS: After a four-day stint in Baltimore, the Toronto Blue Jays return tonight for their first home game in two weeks. The Jays take on the Seattle Mariners tonight. The Mariners are in last place in the West Division, and the Jays are in second-last place in the East Division! This is shaping up to be an exciting series. Rogers Centre (1 Blue Jay Way), 7:07 p.m., $9-$57.
MUSIC: The record release party for folk group $100 happens tonight at Horseshoe Tavern. $100 will play two sets: the first, a start-to-finish performance of their new album Forest of Tears; and the second, a collaborative performance of $100’s older songs, featuring special guests Lullabye Arkestra, Will Kidman, and The Youngest, among others. Horseshoe Tavern (370 Queen Street West), 9 p.m., $8.
COMEDY: If you enjoy jokes (example: How did the ghost patch his sheet? With a pumpkin patch, of course), you may also enjoy this weekend’s transformation of Yonge-Dundas square into a comedy haven. This Hour Has 22 Minutes star Shawn Majumder headlines this year’s outdoor theatre portion of the Just For Laughs Toronto Festival. No one-trick pony, you may also recognize Shawn from the films Ladies Man and Pushing Tin. Canadian Comedy Award winner Derek Edwards and festival favourite Greg Morton. The WestJet Stage in Yonge-Dundas Square, 7:30 p.m., FREE.
DANCE: DJs Grahmzilla and Fistfight—who, despite not being all that awesome at thinking up good names for themselves, are apparently both pretty big deals—kick out the jams at the Drake Hotel for their monthly dance party, Non Stop. They’ll be spinning house, electro and other “dns dns dns” hits. This month, the duo are joined by Montreal electro group CFCF. The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen Street West), 11 p.m. (but like, don’t show up until at least 12:30), $5.
