Urban Planner: July 28, 2008

20080728urbanplanner.jpgMUSIC: British remix artist and musician Joseph Mount plays the Social with his band, Metronomy. They are joined by Toronto electro trio Modele. Treat yourself to a few $2 drinks before 11 p.m., and stay for the show. The Social (1100 Queen Street West), 10 p.m., $5 before 11 p.m., $10 after.
MUSIC: In case the Social’s not really your thing, join Juno Award-winning songstress Melissa Etheridge at Massey Hall for a night of slightly more feminist music. Not just a Juno Award winner, Etheridge has also won a much less impressive Academy Award. Whatever. Massey Hall (178 Victoria Street), 8 p.m., $35–$100.
FILM: The Toronto Film Society presents part four of their series of film noir double features. Tonight at Innis Town Hall, watch 1948 noir rarity Hollow Triumph, followed by 1953 cop drama The City That Never Sleeps. For more information, visit the Toronto Film Society’s MySpace. Innis Town Hall (2 Sussex Avenue), 7:30 p.m., $15.
KIDS: Everyone’s favourite purple dinosaur is performing live at Ontario Place all this week. Barney can dance, sing, and look good in colourful outfits. Needless to say, it’s a really busy day for events here in Toronto. Ontario Place, 10 a.m., $30 (for an Ontario Place Play All Day Pass).
