Urban Planner: January 22, 2013

In today's Urban Planner: a public transit symposium, Christina Petrowska Quilico and Constantine Caravassilis launch their album, Visions: Rhapsodies & Fantasias, and Elvis Monday at The Drake... on a Tuesday.

Christina Petrowska Quilico paints the music she's inspired by, and plays it tonight at Glenn Gould Studio. Painting by Christina Petrowska Quilico.

TRANSIT: Have an idea on how to improve the TTC and unlock gridlock in our city? Join the Transit Alliance tonight as they hold a public transit symposium to discuss just that. Panelists will include TTC CEO Andy Byford, former chief city planner Paul Bedford, and city activist (and Torontoist contributor) Desmond Cole. The 2nd Floor (461 King Street West), 7–9 p.m., FREE.

ART: Indulge your eyes and ears tonight as pianist/painter Christina Petrowska Quilico and composer Constantine Caravassilis launch their new dual album, Visions: Rhapsodies & Fantasias. Petrowska Quilico will perform a selection of Caravassilis’s pieces for solo piano, and she’ll also be showcasing over 100 of her paintings, all of them inspired by the music. Glenn Gould Studio (250 Front Street West), 7:30 p.m., $20, $15 for students and seniors.

MUSIC: No one in their right mind would want to repeat a Monday, except maybe for a special edition of Elvis Monday, Toronto’s longest running indie showcase. Tonight, join guest curator Dorian Wolf of Austra as he celebrates his birthday with Dusted, DIANA, Omhouse, and Dwayne Gretzky, who promise to play long into the night. Drake Underground (1150 Queen Street West), 9 p.m., FREE.
