Catch a Concert

The Trews are heading to Toronto this Saturday at the Danforth Music Hall. Having just released their newest album, making for a total of six records, they are on the hunt for rock and roll, and people to do it with them. The five guys have made up one of the best Canadian rock bands of the century. With an authentic and full sound, this is destined to be a genuine night of classic music.

If you aren’t feeling rock this weekend, try out Chrome Sparks at the Velvet Underground Sunday night. The stage name is for Jeremy Malvin, the Brooklyn-based musician that has been going by that name since he started mixing in college. The chill dance music is very relaxing but also something that you can sway to, which could be the best way to end the weekend.
 

Cat Video Fest

Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema | February 23 (Multiple dates), 4:00 pm – 5:15 pm | Tickets

Keeping with the animal theme for this weekend, head over to the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema for a great afternoon full of adorable cat videos! From submissions sent in from Torontonians to famous viral cats, this event is not one to miss. The best part is that 10% of all proceeds will be going to cat charities across North America, so go see and help a cat!
