Get a head start on Toronto’s Long Winter

It’s been roughly three weeks since summer officially ended, which, given this country’s notoriously short autumns, means winter is just around the corner. Among the season’s few upsides—warm beverages, layering, less construction—is the return of Long Winter. Produced by a collection of artists and curators and a few members of Toronto hardcore outfit Fucked Up, the treasured concert series is kicking off its third season by taking over the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema. The night’s program is overflowing with goodies. In addition to three separate screenings—a Depeche Mode documentary, a profile of electronic music pioneer Alan Vega and a film about voguing—there’s Doomsquad’s hidden live sound installation, an album-release laser show with Absolutely Free, journalist Vish Khanna’s talk show season premiere, and a handful of art and projection installations littered around the space. Not to mention treats from Holy Moly Donuts. Who says there’s nothing to do in the winter?

Sat., Oct. 11. $11. ($8 for Bloor Cinema members.) Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, 506 Bloor St. W., 416-637-3123, torontolongwinter.com.
