Urban Planner: August 19, 2008

20080819urbanplanner.jpgMUSIC: Grammy Award–winning pop band Maroon 5 is playing tonight. Joining them are pop group The Counting Crows, and some chick named Sara Bareilles who had a song in a Rhapsody commercial. If you go, make sure to encourage all the teenyboppers around you to cheer extra loudly; maybe they’ll get invited backstage by Adam Levine! Molson Amphitheatre (909 Lakeshore Boulevard West), 7:30 p.m., $28.50–$126.
SPORTS: The Blue Jays are back in Toronto this evening and ready to ruin the New York Yankees (especially after Sunday’s slaughter of the BoSox). If only things like this would happen more consistently. A.J. Burnett is scheduled to pitch for the Jays. Rogers Centre (1 Blue Jays Way), 7:07 p.m., $9–$63.
FILM: Hey, ladies! Want to make your boyfriend seriously question your relationship? Take him to The Notebook, playing outdoors for free tonight in Yonge-Dundas Square, as part of their Romantic Reels summer film series. Hold his hand, make him put his arm around you, and make sure you cry extra loudly during that scene when Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams kiss in the rain. It’s soooo romantic! Yonge-Dundas Square, 9 p.m., FREE.
MUSIC: Join concert promoter Lauren Schreiber tonight at the Silver Dollar Room for another night of upcoming, fun indie bands. Toronto rock quintet Great Bloomers will be playing, along with abstract pop group Conconquidore Truidore, and Saskatchewanian experimental folk team These Hands. The Silver Dollar Room (486 Spadina Avenue), 8 p.m., $5.
