FILM | Every Film Is Political presents WAL-TOWN
This Magazine is kicking off their Every Film Is Political film screening series tonight at the Tranzac with a showing of Wal-Town. This Sergeo Kirby directed NFB production takes a hard look at the inner business workings of mega-chain Walmart, and how its presence is felt in different locales around the country. Given the current controversy surrounding Walmart's plans to take up residence just outside of the perimeter of Kensington Market, this film is a great choice to begin This Magazine's new series, which aims to bring an audience regular films that tackle political issues affecting TO audiences.
Tranzac Club (292 Brunswick Avenue), 7PM. $15.
MUSIC | Chali2na @ Adelaide Hall
Chali 2na hits TO tonight for a gig at the Adelaide Music Hall! Known for his association with the groups Jurassic 5 (of which he was a founding member) and Ozomatli, Chali 2na has been gaining a serious following or his solo performances around the continent at festivals like Evolve and others. He has also collaborated with Roots Manuva, Linkin Park, K'naan, Mos Def, Rusko, Black Eyed Peas, and many others. This is his first solo gig in TO, so both he and the audience should be pretty pumped. He'll be performing with The House Of Vibe, and Kayo is also on the bill.
