Feast In The East is a monthly concert series featuring underground artists, performance art, and delicious vegan/gluten-free dinner for the low price of $8 (advance) / $10 (door). Basically the trifecta of happiness right there.

Last month, I went to Gerrard Art Space last month to see Mimico and had a blast – so much so that I reached out to get involved in putting it on. Last Sunday, I spent five hours battling the elements by bike, postering Ossington, Queen West, Dundas, College, and Bloor in all yer favourite record stores and coffeehouses.

This month’s meal is vegan/gluten-free mac & cheese by Harmonie Ainsley & Mary Duthie. Yum yum! The show is all ages and ends early (8pm – 11pm) so there’s still plenty of time to head back to Handlebar, Get Well, or 3 Speed.

Holiday Rambler is the solo project of Hooded Fang drummer D. Alex Meeks. Akin to the dark, warped folk of Timber Timbre, his music trembles between themes of religion and isolation.

Clara Engel is a singer-songwriter dipping into folk territory. Her voice is a pillar of strength that solidifies it all.

Moonwood make playfully fuzzy electronic kraut rock. I can already tell that I’m going to dance to this.

$8 Adv tickets available Circus Books & Music, The Film Buff, Cask Music, Soundscapes and Grasshopper Records. $10 at the door

Art by Henri Faberg – Environs 

“Musician, filmmaker and jaded aristocrat ~ is leaving town for Europe in March and is terrified that people there might not like him. He’s not even sure he likes himself. Visit him in a calm and safe little space for a one-on-one chat, to trade secrets in confidence and new ways of seeing one’s self for the coming year.”

Basically, there’s going to be a booth set up where people can try to convince this guy that he’s a decent, likeable human. Gosh, art is fun.

See you there! Facebook RSVP
