Urban Planner: August 31, 2008

20080831urbanplanner.jpgMUSIC: You’ve got some options today, reader. You could head over to Sneaky Dee’s tonight for the 428th edition of weekly music series Wavelength. This week’s lineup features Winnipeg funk pop group Flying Fox and the Hunter/Gatherers, followed by improvisational jazz group The WoodChoppers (431 College Street, 10 p.m., PWYC). Alternatively, you could go to the Tranzac, where folk rock singer Andy Swan is playing in the Southern Cross Lounge (292 Brunswick Avenue, 10:30 p.m., FREE).
FESTIVAL: Once again, there is a Pedestrian Sunday happening today in Kensington Market. Today’s theme is air. More specifically, it is the air of anger felt by those in opposition to the Canadian International Air Show. Come blow bubbles, eat chili, and eavesdrop on those filled with passionate anti–Air Show fury. Kensington Market (Augusta Street, south of College Street), 1–10 p.m., FREE.
FESTIVAL: Hey, Lakeshore West GO Train commuters! It turns out Mimico is more than just the name of the stop between Exhibition and Long Branch. Today at Amos Waites Park, the inaugural Mimicofest will be taking place. A celebration of the Mimico community, it will include a yard sale, live music, theatrical performances, an arts and crafts exhibit, and activities for children. Amos Waites Park (2445 Lakeshore Boulevard West), 3 p.m., FREE.
