Queen West Represent

Set some time aside on Sunday to head down to the Gladstone Hotel - a venue which is growing into the hub and soul of West Queen West. If there's doings a-transpiring in the community, it's even odds that the Gladstone will be the venue.

This event is entitled "Queen West West Equitable Development Beach Partee". There are two aims: raising awareness of the interconnections between longtime Parkdale residents, business interests, the arts communities and all stakeholders in this vibrant part of Toronto. And there's money to be raised for homelessness-aid organizations PARC (Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre), and Na-Me-Res.

The night's entertainment highlights, as far as I'm concerned, are Ghostlight and an improv group featuring John Oswald, Scott Thomson, Eric Chenaux and Jake Oelrichs. Also on the bill are The Phonemes, Garbage!Violence!Enthusiasm!, Ghostlight and DJ Misty Rock N' Roll. It kicks off at 9PM.

Carl Zoilus Wilson is helping to organize this. It sounds like the event is still evolving, so check his blog for possible updates over the weekend.
