The best things to do in Toronto this weekend: April 15-18


Our picks for the top things to do in Toronto on the weekend of April 15-18 includes a Barenaked Ladies virtual concert, BoylequeTO, Honey Jam’s concert series and an audio drama series from Factory Theatre.

BoylesqueTO: Still Homo

The local burlesque group is hitting virtual home stages on Glad Day Bookshop’s online streaming platform. If stripping isn’t enough to spice up your Thursday evening during the third wave, we’re pretty sure there will be a lot of pandemic puns.

April 15 at 8:30 pm. Free, donations welcome.

More Than Dance, We Are A Movement

Harbourfront Centre and Digidance present a streamed performance of excerpts from the Toronto-based Red Sky Performance’s 20-year repertoire, along with interviews with collaborators and creators. Read an interview with Red Sky’s Sandra Laronde here.

April 15-20. $16.14-$26.14.

Every Minute Of Every Day

Keith Barker’s play about estranged sisters reconciling is part of Factory Theatre’s series of audio dramas set in and around Toronto neighbourhoods and landmarks.

Available to listen from April 15 onwards.

Flip n’ Hits with BNL: A Night of Monster Jams of Pandemic Proportions

The Canadian indie rock heroes pre-recorded a live gig from the Danforth Music Hall that streams twice this weekend via Session Live. We recently caught up with the group to reminisce about their August 1990 cover story for our 40th anniversary series 40 at 40. Read the story here.

April 17 at 9 pm, April 18 at 3 pm. Tickets from $19.

After Hours Honey Jam Sessions

The 25-year-old showcase series for women in the local music scene is keeping the show going during lockdown with a series of pre-recorded livestreams from the Phoenix. This Sunday, a couple of our favourite Toronto R&B acts, Jayd Ink and TRP.P, are performing alongside up-and-coming Regent Park MC Jet Lyse.

April 18. 10 pm, all ages. Free.
