This weekend in Toronto, you’ve got a cool lineup of events to check out, from a rap show on Friday night, to a beer festival just for women. Plus the Harbourfront Centre is celebrating Dia de los Muertos all weekend. Just part of the fun in TO happening this weekend, November 4-6.
Detroit rap star Danny Brown is in TO in a show presented by Rap Season. He’s behind a few hits such as Dip, 25 Bucks and Smokin’ & Drinkin’, released in 2013. Recently, he’s been working on a children’s book about a little girl who changes her hair and other parts of her looks just to realize she’s better the way she was, according to Wikipedia.
