The top free events in Toronto this week will bring you to art galleries and concert venues. Gallery TPW is offering free entry to Photorama 2015, so you can peruse the works of both new and established artists without dropping a dime. If you'd rather catch some live music The Horseshoe is offering two nights of free shows.
Here's what to do if you've drained your chequing account.
LIT BANG! (November 26-December 20)
LIT BANG! kicks off this week with a few literary themed events to keep you busy at no cost. On tap this week is an art exhibition and the launch of gustave morin's Clean Sails. Check out the full festival schedule on the IN PRINT website.
Photorama 2015 (November 27)
TPWs 29th annual fundraising exhibition is in full swing, showcasing works by over 100 artists. You'll find photographs by well known Canadian artists like Edward Burtynsky, Geoffrey James, Chris Curreri, Robyn Cumming and a few promising new faces. Most works are priced under $600, so it's a great option if you're looking to start a collection.
Shoeless Mondays (November 30)
Kick off your week with a free live show. This Monday, Late Night Sanity, Cast In Cadence, and Christine Saade will be performing at the Horseshoe Tavern. If you can't make it out on Monday, the venue also hosts Dave Bookman's Nu Music Night every Tuesday, which is also a no cover event.
Comedy on College (December 1)
Having an off week? Lighten it up with some laughs at Comedy on College this Tuesday. The free show will feature stand-up by Matt Gass, Amanda Day, Kye Fox, Camille Cote, Ryan Long , DeAnne Smith, Mark Little and more. If you've got a couple bucks to spare, the food and drinks at Pour Boy are very budget-friendly.
Shameless Karaoke (December 4-5)
Let out your inner Mariah Carey by belting out high notes at the Gladstone Melody Bar this Friday and Saturday. You'll probably need a little bit of liquid courage, so I suggest pre-gaming for this one.
