Strange Days: a head-to-head comparison of Nuit Blanche and Culture Days

This weekend, two major free arts extravaganzas are taking over the city. Nuit Blanche, from dusk Saturday to dawn Sunday, and Culture Days, which spans the whole weekend and the whole country. Either one alone is too much; how can you handle both at the same time? Let’s do a quick comparison and see what you can get out of all this artiness.

Theatre Review: The Odd Couple

Theatre Review: The Odd Couple

Not surprisingly, when Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple premiered in 1965, it was a smashing success. A droll play about two divorced men living together as poker-playing bachelors certainly had its charms back then. It was an era when divorce was just becoming an acceptable option for couples, and a “boys will be boys” motif was always a popular cause to champion. But what was novel “fun” back then borders on “kitsch” today.

Towing has been in steady decline over the past five years. Are Torontonians turning into better parkers, or does this have something to do with the heftier parking fines in place?

Q&A: Ed the Sock, who’s about to get roasted at Comedy Bar tonight

Lewd, crude and sometimes rude, Ed the Sock has been pushing the envelope on hot-button topics since the ‘90s. With all that ‘tude, it’s no surprise that the most famous tube sock in the world is long overdue for a good roasting. The first Dark Comedy Festival presents The Roast of Ed the Sock on Sept. 28 as part of its 10-day event. Just don’t mention the word "dryer." We caught up with Ed to talk about boy bands, politics and Mel Gibson.

It’s no wonder: Great Bloomers mix genres like a group of chemists, combining just the right doses of country, indie and ‘70s-era stadium rock to create pristine explosions of sound.

Band of the Week: The Shanks

The music of The Shanks exists in a perpetual struggle with itself. It is at once unsettling and familiar, dark and soothing, heavy and pretty, while managing to remain cohesive. This Orangeville-area twosome take a White Stripes-minimalist approach, crafting tunes on just drums and bass, but managing to create enough dynamics and layers to keep the listener engaged — no easy feat, but made less painful by vocalist/bassist Ian Starkey’s haunting, at times operatic voice.

It was supposed lead to the permanent preservation of the forest.

When one thinks of the most successful musicals of the 20th century, one thinks of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Frank Loesser and, of course, the inspired Stephen Sondheim. Lerner and Loewe also teamed together for what is arguably the single, perfect musical of the 1900s, now playing to full houses at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, My Fair Lady. (When 60 per cent of its book is taken from Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, what can you expect?)

School Damage walk a well-beaten path in terms of method: light-speed guitar, punishing drums and bouncing bass are the backdrop for snotty lead vocals, angry lyrics and sugary-sweet harmonies. But sometimes there’s no point in trying to expand on something that’s been tried and tested. Guitar, drums, bass, attitude: there’s really not much room for improvement there. Throw in a decent hook and you’ve got the formula for the best songs of the last 70 years or so.
