DIY Defies Gravity
Toronto Life Magazine awarded last winter’s wildly popular tribute to the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) spirit, Totsapalooza, with number 14 on their 2009 list of “50 Reasons To Love Toronto”. Fasten your seatbelts, celestial explorers! For this year’s Totsapalooza: The Space Age Rodeo Edition, we’ve put together another amazing lineup of leading indie rockers, children’s authors and inventive crafts to celebrate how the DIY ethos defies gravity. Don Kerr & The Jet Pack Orchestra will beam the party into another galaxy with the help of Bellwoods Trinity, I Eat Kids and Sho, Mo & The Monkey Bunch. Also on the bill is Katie Van Camp, who will perform her award-winning tale, Harry & Horsie, (Harper Collins), Ashley Spires will present her stellar feline, Binky The Space Cat (Kids Can) and Chris A. Rutkowski’s going to open your eyes with his I Saw It Too: Real UFO Sightings (Dundurn). Kids will build flying saucers and musical instruments out of recycled materials. We’ll send the UFOs into orbit by attaching them to helium balloons. And, of course, there will be an intergalactic jam session featuring budding rockers and indie veterans! Presented by Small Print, The Little Paper and Rooster Studio, (AKA The Tot Squad) with BookShorts Literacy Program and Torontoist.com.
