Hot Docs Film Screening - BROTHERS HYPNOTIC @ Various Locations, Toronto, ON - Wed May 1st, Thurs May 2nd & Sun May 5th!


HOT DOCS: BROTHERS HYPNOTIC
A co-presentation by Manifesto, Fusicology and the Hot Docs Film Festival

For the eight young men in the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, “brotherhood” is literal: they’re all sons of anti-establishment jazz legend, Phil Cohran. Cohran and their mothers raised them together on Chicago’s South Side on a strict diet of jazz, funk and Black Consciousness. Family band practice began at 6am. Now grown, as they raise eight brass horns to the sky, they make music that is at once indescribably joyful, unremittingly exciting, and undeniably together. But as the brothers try to make their own way in the wide world—while playing in the streets of New York City, collaborating with Mos Def, or wowing a jazz festival—they find the values their father bred into them constantly tested. They must decide whether his principles really are their own.

Brothers Hypnotic is a coming of age story, for eight brothers, and for an ideal.

Hot Docs Film Screening - LIFE AND CRIMES OF DORIS PAYNE @ Scotiabank Theatre, Toronto, ON - Wed May 1st!



How does a poor, single, African-American mother from segregated 1950s America wind up as one of the world’s most notorious jewel thieves? Just ask her. A glamorous 81-year-old, Doris Payne is as unapologetic today about the nearly $2 million in jewels she’s stolen over a 60-year career as she was the day she stole her first carat. With Payne now on trial for the theft of a department store diamond ring, filmmakers Kirk Marcolina and Matthew Pond probe beneath her consummate smile to uncover the secrets of her trade and what drove her to a life of crime. Stylish recreations, an extensive archive and candid interviews reveal how Payne managed to jet-set her way into any Cartier or Tiffany’s from Monte Carlo to Japan and walk out with small fortunes. This sensational portrait exposes a rebel who defies society’s prejudices and pinches her own version of the American Dream while she steals your heart. Myrocia Watamaniuk

Co-Presented with Manifesto

Kobo Town CD Release Party @ Lula Lounge, Toronto, ON - Wed May 1st!

The result of the collaboration between Kobo Town and producer Ivan Duran is a striking recording that reflects their mutual commitment to revive the folkloric music of the West Indies by taking it in new creative directions.


Founded by Trinidadian-Canadian songwriter Drew Gonsalves, Kobo Town is named after the historic neighborhood in Port-of-Spain where calypso was born. Kobo Town takes the intricate wordplay of classic Caribbean music and runs it through a 21st Century filter. In the world of Kobo Town calypso, roots reggae, and acoustic instrumentation meet innovative production techniques, social commentary and indie rock attitude.

Kobo Town’s second album Jumbie in the Jukebox will be released in early 2013 by Stonetree and Cumbancha. The new album was produced Ivan Duran, whose masterful work on the now classic Wátina from Andy Palacio & the Garifuna Collective earned a 2007 WOMEX Award and was selected by Amazon.com as “The Greatest World Music Album of All Time.”

Check out Kobo Town's website at  http://www.kobotown.com/

Doors Open: 7:00PM
Show Starts: 8:00PM
Admission: $15

Hot Docs Film Screenings - LET THE FIRE BURN @ Various Locations, Toronto, ON - Mon Apr 29th, Tues Apr 30th & Fri May 3rd!

In 1985, a conflict between Philadelphia police and radical black liberation group MOVE reached a violent climax when the police dropped explosives onto the communal row house occupied by the group. The ensuing fire destroyed 61 homes and claimed the lives of six adults (including MOVE founder John Africa) and five children. The authorities stood by and watched the fire burn for over an hour before they extinguished the blaze. Jason Osder expertly constructs an historical context for the conflict between MOVE and the Philly police that dates back through the ‘70s. Comprised entirely of archival material, including interviews with the only two survivors of the fire and the public commission inquiry that followed the tragedy, Let the Fire Burn has a sense of immediacy and current cultural relevance as it investigates how fear, intolerance and prejudice can quickly spiral out of control.

WARNER GIRL - Mr. Warner’s Birthday Soiree @ Maison Mercer - Fri April 26th!


A significant event in Toronto Nightlife Entertainment

Be apart of the Celebration

~ WARNER GIRL ~

- A “FEMALE” who knows, seeks and enjoys quality to satisfy her own palate.

That on the go, goal-oriented lady who exudes class and elegance with her
mere presence in any social setting.

A sophisticated and independent woman she is; no King is required for this Queen to exist.
A WARNER GIRL enjoys life to the fullest and makes positive things
happen for herself and her community.

She loves being connected and associated. Not completely serious at all times, a WARNER GIRL
loves to mix it up some and enjoys the “Finer Things”, especially when it comes to nightlife...because w
hen the work ends, she is ready to play. Wherever the exclusive hot spots are,
a "WARNER GIRL" will be there, in her own booth, popping her own bottles!

She's accustomed to receiving nothing short of the best, and this is why I cater
exclusively to her!
