Do Make Say Think: What We're Doing This Weekend (April 5 - 7)
California Beach Punk, Sexy Literary Satire & Silent Film Festival

April 5 Nathan Williams and his act Wavves crash into the Horshoe tonight. The California skate punk brings an early glimpse of summer to TO with his poppy, sunbleached riff rock. Fidlar and Cheetah support.

April 5 – 7 Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody, a comedy show that aims to make Fifty Shades of Gray even more ridiculous than it already is, is playing at the Panasonic Theatre all weekend.

April 5 – 7 Love good food? How about good drink? You’re in luck, because The Good Food and Drink festival is at Exhibition Place this weekend. Highlights include food trucks and cheese. Also celebrity chefs like Anna Olson, but let’s not kid ourselves as to why you want to go. 

April 5 – 7 The Spring Cottage Life Show is also taking place this weekend at the International Centre, for those who are lucky enough to have a summer abode outside the smog of the city. Or if you’re just really into kayaks and rustic log furniture.

April 4-9 Toronto Silent Film Festival: With soundless film classics restored and re-scored for the true cinephile’s enjoyment, the 6-day festival will have screenings every night at various locations across the city including The Carlton, Innis Town Hall and the Fox Theatre in the Beaches, where you can catch 100 Laffs: Slapstick Smorgasbord on Sunday. Even viewers dedicated to talkies will get a kick out of the physical comedy of Laurel & Hardy, Charley Chase, and Roscoe Arbuckle.

April 7 Fans of vintage memorabilia have two shows to attend this Sunday. The 1st Antiques and Vintage Show is taking over the Grande Luxe Event Boutique with vintage clothing and accessories as well as fine jewelry and antiques. Meanwhile, at the Wychwood Barns The Old Book and Paper Show will showcase antiquarian books, vintage postcards and sport cards, comic books and more.

March 28 – April 21 Charting the three-year rise to fame of Buddy Holly with over 20 of his greatest hits, including “Maybe Baby” and “Not Fade Away”, Buddy-The Buddy Holly Story is being put on by the folks at the Lower Ossington Threatre. High demand for the show has however moved performances to the larger  Randolph Theatre.
