Urban Planner: December 3, 2012
In today's Urban Planner: it's the last Trampoline Hall of 2012, there's a cabaret fundraiser at Statler's, and the Shuffle Demons play the Orbit Room.
LECTURE: It’s the last Trampoline Hall of 2012, and this month’s curator, Sholem Krishtalka, has tapped folks from the music scene to talk about non-music things. Teacher and Sheezer bassist Laura Barrett is holding forth on “Game Autobiography”; actress and Vag Halen member Vanessa Dunn is talking “survival”; and chartered accountant and Music Gallery board member Scott Harrison is lecturing on “boredom.” What few at-the-door tickets may be left will go on sale at 6:30 p.m. tonight. The Garrison (1197 Dundas Street West), 8 p.m., $5.
CABARET: Two solo theatre shows about screen legends, being remounted in January at the Next Stage Festival, join forces for a cabaret fundraiser tonight. The Old Hollywood Fundraiser will feature performers like Ryan G. Hinds and Michael Hughes, and will be hosted by Laura Anne Harris (who plays Judy Holliday in Pitch Blond) and Jennifer Walls (Liza Minnelli in Liza Live!). Statler’s Piano Lounge (487 Church Street), 8 p.m., PWYC.
MUSIC: Local funk orchestra The Shuffle Demons are in the middle of a month-long residency on Monday nights at the Orbit Room. They play show three of five tonight. (You can’t take the Spadina bus to get there, but the College streetcar will drop you off in front of the venue.) The Orbit Room (580A College Street), doors at 9.m., $10.
