If you're not spending the week gearing up for the release of Shaolin Soccer (which coincides with this week's visit to Canada by the Dalai Lama) as no doubt multitudes are, there are a number of shows and vernissages worth your time. A rule of thumb - drink cheaply at the vernissage, smuggle your own for the shows.

Slaves of the Soul Jazz label (I know your type, I've spent enough time responding to your queries in a record store) will be attending the Sharon Jones performance. While it probably won't top the Wolf Parade show on Saturday night (and what could?), the Chinese Stars (ex-Arab On Radar, 6 Finger Satellite) performance at El Salon will no doubt prove a memorable and sweaty occasion, hopefully transcending the high-school dance feel the venue exudes. Pop and chips?
