Urban Planner: January 17, 2013

In today's Urban Planner: follow the yellow brick road, a reading series highlights "Amazing New Stuff," and Wavelength and Silent Shout team up.

MUSIC: While The Wizard of Oz is having a run over at the Ed Mirvish Theatre, there’s a very different “The Wizard of Oz” performance that you can check out. British musician Professor Dorothy de Val and guest artist Dr Charlene Biggs are bringing you a piano concert of the same name. It explores and celebrates British music and the works of Percy Grainger (and many other composers). Tribute Communities Recital Hall, Accolade East Building, York University (4700 Keele Street), 7:30 p.m., $15.

READING: Check out Amazing New Stuff, a reading series that features local authors. Today’s edition includes readings from Christine Fischer Guy (reading from her novel, Moose), poet Laura Clarke, Raven Shields, and Giles Blunt, a crime writer. Afterward, there will be a performance by singer/songwriter Steve Gleason. The Common (1071 College Street), 7:30 p.m.–9 p.m., FREE.

ART: Wavelength and Silent Shout are teaming up to bring you a night of electronic dance music. There will be performances by bands like Beta Frontiers, Prince Innocence, Blank Capsule, and Boy Bitch. Don’t miss out on this one, because it’s the very last Wavelength event before the big Wavelength festival in February. Wicked Club, Play (1032 Queen West), 9 p.m., $7.
