Hit the 360 (326 Queen West) on Saturday (June 5) at 8:30 pm and check out the all-ages launch of teenage feminist mag Shameless. Think the antithesis of Teen Vogue. A mere five bucks admission gets you a premiere edition of the book, which I'd keep crisp if I were you. Who knows what it'll fetch on eBay in a few years when it's known as the teen book from Canada that pulled a Wallpaper on the lipstick-driven teen market? www.shamelessmag.com
