dont-you-forget-cast2This week, there’s editions of the politically inflammatory theatre night The Wrecking Ball, and of the always popular odd lecture series Trampoline Hall; Magali Meagher curates a special Valentine’s inspired Wombat Wednesday event, featuring celebrity couples and odd pairs; Sean Cullen and Nick Flanagan bring their comedy shows (“The Sean Schau” and “Joke Club“, respectively) back to life at Comedy Bar; The overlooked indie gem “Wendy and Lucy” opens, as does the must-be-seen-in-3D adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s “Coraline“; and Wavelength celebrates its 450th edition with four nights of music at five different venues from Thursday to Sunday, featuring hot acts like Slim Twig, Timbre Timbre, and The Diableros.

More about the week’s top draws in theatre, comedy, film and music, after the jump.

There’s a whole bunch of options to see some fascinating music this evening in Toronto, and two of them are as cheap as you can get.

Timbre Timbre is playing a FREE in-store set at Soundscapes tonight at 7pm. I’m a huge fan of the Soundscapes in-store series; they have a history of inviting some of Toronto’s best indie acts, like Constantines, Gentleman Reg, Broken Social Scene, and many more, to squeeze into the back of the store and play for a crowd of savvy music fans (they’ve also had some terrific out of towners, like Gruff Rys of Super Furry Animals, Iron and Wine, and Of Montreal).
