Urban Planner: October 30, 2008

ART: Still looking for the perfect picture to fit into that eight-by-eight inch frame you got last Christmas? Head on down to the opening of the Love Show and pick up one of the many eight-by-eight inch pieces of art on sale, starting at $100. Proceeds go to a selection of youth outreach programs, so you can feel morally cleansed after making that crass joke about “something else eight-by-eight inches” that we’ve tastefully declined to print here, you filthy animals. Gallery 1313 (1313 Queen Street West), Opens tonight at 7 p.m. and runs until November 9, FREE.
MUSIC: Synth-soul duo Pants and Tie are going to rock The Boat tonight with Idle Tigers, Alphabot!, and Noisedive. According to the event’s Facebook page, Idle Tigers will be playing musical versions of scary stories, which promises to be either very cool or very un-cool. Find out tonight! The Boat (158 Augusta Avenue), 9 p.m., $5–$10.
EXHIBIT: Toronto Public Health is celebrating its 125-year anniversary the wild way—by holding a photograph and document exhibition. Pictures from the City of Toronto Archives and Department of Public Health log books and reports will be on display, chronicling the battle for health in Toronto from 1883 to the present day. City of Toronto Archives (255 Spadina Road), Monday to Friday 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.–4:30 p.m., FREE.
SEXY: Throw on that maid outfit we all know you have stashed in the bottom of your closet, and check out The Harlettes’ fifth annual Monster Mash Bash. The event promises loads of dancing, costumes, and burlesque, and prizes are being offered for the best costume, so you’d better put on some make-up and steal a pair of your girlfriend’s stockings on your way out the door. Revival Bar (783 College Street), 8 p.m., $15 ($10 with costume).
BOOKS: Tightrope Books will be hosting an evening of Latino writing and music this evening, featuring poet Salvador Alanis, author Jesse Villegas, and musicians the Cubanos. The Trane Studio (964 Bathurst Street), 6:30 p.m., FREE.
