Crazy time with Jtron

It'll be interesting to see how much of this weekend I actually attend, but tentatively, here's the lineup....starting tonight..


Poursuite @ Harbourfront Worldstage 9:00pm

Marcelle Hudon (Quebec)
This Montreal artist, known for her work on popular television shows, is an innovator of puppetry and integrates it into all aspects of her work. Equally at home in the visual arts as in the performing arts, this master puppeteer is a formidable manipulator of fictions. She takes an intimate approach to material and motifs by creating enchanting portraits through puppetry, live music, live video, and shadow play.


Cooped @ Harbourfront WorldStage 8pm

Spymonkey (UK)
Premiere Dance Theatre
Jaw-achingly funny! — The List
Engaging, ridiculous and very very funny… — Montreal Gazette
A fawn-like heroine, a sinister estate owner, a smarmy lawyer and an eccentric butler converge upon an English country house, and surprise…mayhem ensues! Spoofing the pulp romance novella, this pop culture parody is rife with sight gags, naughtiness (…and nudity!), slapstick, and hilarious musical numbers that bring this gothic thriller to life.

P-Tapia's 90th Bday Party at Tattoo
Concept: Collaborating club kings Charles Khabouth (Ultra Supper Club, The Guvernment) and Nick Di Donato (C Lounge, Velvet Underground) aim to please Toronto headbangers with this ode to a grittier era when men rocked tight leather, worshipped hairspray and bit off bats’ heads with abandon. Not that the venue itself has much of a filth factor: chic booths border a large dance floor and stage, where the likes of Dragonette have already performed.
Crowd: Neither as goth nor as grunge as one would imagine. Instead, Abercrombie-bedecked guys and gals unleash their inner Ozzies to a roster of rock usually reserved for retro night. Putting the sound quality of your old cassette collection to shame, classics from Zep, Guns n’ Roses, Daft Punk and Joan Jett blend with newer offerings from The Strokes and The Killers.
Cocktail: The Jäger Bomb—a shot of Jägermeister dropped into a tumbler of Red Bull—is a saviour for the weary and whiplashed.
Tattoo Rock Parlour, 567 Queen St. W., 416-703-5488. $5–$10. Tuesday to Saturday, 5 p.m. to 2 a.m

Unsung Bboy Battles @ The Brigantine HarbourFront 4pm
Aba Entertainment (Toronto)
March 15
The Brigantine Room
Devoted to hip-hop culture, specifically the break-dance element, this local company stages "battles" to highlight Canada's hidden talent. These performances showcase this remarkable discipline that combines artistry and athleticism and prove that Aba Entertainment is changing the face of Bboying in Canada.

Mike Doughty's Band w/ The Panderers @ Mod Club
Mike Doughty's Band will embark on a six-week North American headlining tour in March, supporting Doughty's new album Golden Delicious. Kicking off March 12 in Northampton, Mass., the tour continues across the United States and Canada, stopping in Toronto this Saturday March 15th. Led by Doughty on vocals and guitars, the band also includes John Kirby (Black Eyed Peas) on keyboards, Pete McNeal (Cake, Jem, Gary Jules) on drums and Andrew "Scrap" Livingston on bass

(NRK, Honchos Records)
Noël counts Osunlade, Joe Clausell, Masters at Work, Nick Holder, Anthony Nicholson, and Moody Man among his many inspirations. He has been making music with the same keyboard for the past 12 years (Ensoniq EPS 01) to achieve a sound he describes as 'kinda raw and dirty.' "An ideal house track is deep and soulful. The percussions alone should be danceable," says Nanton. Nanton's full-length album, fu.cha cul.cha (NRK/Honchos Records) is a mixture of live and sample-based deep house music with afro-latin-carribean-jazz twists. fu.cha cul.cha debuted to rave reviews from music magazines around the world including IDJ Magazine and Mix Magazine. Recent projects include remixes and original tracks featuring vocal garage music, live sounds and broken beats. He continues to work with top T.O. talent like Nick Holder, Sandi Flores, Sködt McNalty, Jenny Katz and Sacha Williamson.
Do not miss this rare appearance by one of Toronto's house music heroes.
