KWHydro Electric Thursday's: Bowie and Prince at Centre In The Square, 101 Queen St. N., Kitchener
Ziggy Stardust, Station to Station, Low, Heroes, Scary Monsters... 1999, Purple Rain, Parade, Sign, The Gold Experience... David Bowie blazed the trail, and whether by design or osmosis Prince soon followed, becoming a maverick himself. These are two of the greatest pop/glam/rock enigmas in music history. Always unique, interesting and controversial, and never afraid to push their own creative boundaries, their music pleases, challenges and always amazes. Jeans 'n Classics is very proud to offer a combined night of these two groundbreaking artists, starring Jean Meilleur and Gavin Hope.

Cowboy Junkies + Friends Feat. Skydiggers & LeE HARVeY OsMOND at Massey Hall, 178 Victoria St., Toronto
Cowboy Junkies - Formed in Toronto in 1985 the band recorded its blues-inspired debut album Whites Off Earth Now!! and released it on their own Latent label. Touring the southern US in support of the album, provided the inspiration for the band’s second effort, The Trinity Session. Their seminal album is a melancholic mixture of blues, country, folk, and rock featuring a collection of originals, covers and traditional songs. More than 20 years later, with fifteen studio albums and many live and compilations albums to their credit, they return to Toronto for a very special performance at Massey Hall alongside their friends Skydiggers - Chemistry, passion, energy and evolution are a few words that come to mind when Andy Maize and Josh Finlayson talk about twenty-five years together in Skydiggers. Skydiggers are not only riding all of those years of momentum but continuing to evolve as well. They attribute their ongoing growth and successes to chemistry, not only of the band but also the experiences of sharing the stage with so many other great Canadian musicians. LeE HARVeY OsMOND - The Hamilton, Ontario man known as Tom Wilson has forged an alter-ego from a pop-culture mash-up of JFK’s killer and the famed family of singing Mormons. That’s in addition to his identification since the ‘90s as a member of now-defunct Canadian rock band Junkhouse, and the very-much-alive Americana entity of Blackie & the Rodeo Kings. Wilson has used the Osmond moniker for three solo albums, including his 2015 Latent Recordings release Beautiful Scars, produced by the Cowboy Junkies’ Michael Timmins.

TICKETS START AT ONLY $21 Grammy Award-winning Estonian vocal ensemble Vox Clamantis is “a rarity. The 15 singers sound is complete, comfortable possession of the music and its incantatory intentions.” (BBC Music) Ensemble members share a passion for Gregorian chant, early polyphony, and contemporary music. The duo of violinist and singer, Maarja Nuut, and Estonian electronic music composer, Hendrik Kaljujärv, are defined by a deep and intense quest to create complex moodscapes. Nuut uses her voice, violin, and loop station to create a quirky sound world that seems to be out of a Baltic fairy tale book. Together, their sound is firmly rooted in village traditions and yet completely contemporary. This concert’s program includes works by Arvo Pärt, Helena Tulve, Tõnis Kaumann, and others. There will be a fascinating pre-concert talk at 7pm.

TOPS presents Do The Right Thing at Fort York National Historic Site, 250 Fort York Blvd., Toronto
Toronto Outdoor Picture Show will open its summer-long series called "Cinematic Cities" with a one-night-only screening at Fort York! Culture, politics, music, race, and gender collide in the late Reagan-era masterpiece DO THE RIGHT THING, an essential film about urban summer life. Cinematic maverick Spike Lee adopts an enthralling, colour-saturated aesthetic to capture the complicated lives of a diverse, interconnected cast of Brooklynites over the course of one day, as the sweltering heat, anger, and bigotry intensify towards an inevitable breaking point. Do The Right Thing will follow a screening of A Tribe Called Red’s Indian City music video, which also uses the colourful cityscape and music to tell a larger story about urban history. Together, these two films are the perfect kick-off screening for Toronto Outdoor Picture Show’s 2018 Cinematic Cities programme, featuring films about cities and their citizens, presented in parks across Toronto this summer. Films @ Sundown (9:15pm) Food from Toben Food By Design and The Pop Stand, and alcoholic beverages for sale @ 7pm Free, not a ticketed event (donations welcome!) BYOBlanket & Chairs Accessible venue (screening takes place in the "Walled Fort") Films are screened with captioning This event is 19+
