Toronto's Long Winter Kicks Off with Calvin Love, Laugh Sabbath
In case you haven't noticed from your sniffling nose and hardened nips, the winter is coming. While that certainly means a lot of dark, cold evenings, it also means that Toronto artsy types will get to enjoy the return of the Long Winter concert series.

Celebrating its fourth year, the Long Winter series kicks off with its first event on November 13 at Toronto's Great Hall.

Performers include Calvin Love, Sahara, Elaquent, Pony, Mieke, Sasha Chapin, Bossie, Eyeballs (featuring projectionist Leslie Predy), Dilettantes, Cris Derksen, the Muscadettes and Practice Wife.

The event also includes a performance from the comedy troupe Laugh Sabbath, as well as DJ sets from Kehdo, Distraksjon and Weird L.

There will also be visual art from Kate Young, Chris Boni, Lena Suksi, Brad Casey, Maylee Todd, Heretical Objects Cooperative, Steve Reaume, Radha Chaddah, Romar Johnson and Michael Young.

Need more? Long Winter also includes an arcade curated by the Hand Eye Society, a "Gardenarium" from Paloma Dawkings, dance from Benjamin Kamino and Hataw, zines from Alex Khan and Lips & Skull, David Fono's "Invisiball" and the return of the talk show Long Night with Vish Khanna.
