ART: Tonight at the Steam Whistle Brewing Gallery, “MOMBACHO: A Photo Chronicle of Life in Nicaragua” is having its opening reception. Photographers Elton Clemente and Sean Zaffino are both creative staff members at Steam Whistle Brewing. While they were on a business adventure developing Nicaraguan cigars for export to Canada, the duo snapped a series of shots portraying the stunning scenery and life throughout Grenada, San Juan del Sur, Managua, and Rivas. The series of photos is not meant as a social commentary, but as a reflection of the jaw-dropping scenery and inspiring people of the areas. Steam Whistle Brewing Gallery (255 Bremner Boulevard), 6 p.m., FREE.
COMEDY: Join comedians Marcel St. Pierre, the Williamson Playboys, Pete Zedlacher, and Laurie Elliott tonight for a benefit called “Other People’s Stuff.” A mix of stand-up and sketch comedy, the event’s proceeds are going towards research for Multiple Sclerosis and Cancer. The event is hosted by Scott McCrickard and Ron Sparks. The Rivoli (334 Queen Street West), 9 p.m., PWYC.
MUSIC: Indianapolis indie band Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s are in town tonight. Joining them are Ruby Coast, the five-piece band from Aurora, Ontario who are quickly making their way to the top of Toronto’s indie music food chain. The Horseshoe Tavern (370 Queen Street West), 8:30 p.m., $12.
