On August 26th, Late Night in the Bedroom, Toronto's brand-spanking new arts and culture talk show premiered in front of a live audience with a wildly exciting lineup of guests. The show's guests included the extremely prolific hip-hop photographer Che Kothari, who talked about his work as well as Toronto's Manifesto Festival, which he helped found and currently directs. Guerilla gardeners Sean Martindale and Eric Cheung, otherwise known as the "Poster Pocket Plant Guys", discussed their delightful street interventions. Finally, musical guest Boys Who Say No, graced Late Night in the Bedroom's apartment studio with a set of their quirky and unpredictable indie pop rock.

Local band Whale Tooth, with members Elise LeGrow (vocals), Norman Maschke (guitar/vocals), Alex Denike (guitar/vocals), Michael McCreary (bass/vocals) and Sep Noroozi (drums), have been taking the city by storm with their unique brand of hyper-energetic indie pop. With powerful vocals and tight, fast-paced sets, the energy the band emits is infectious, and it doesn't take long for everyone in the audience to start shaking their hips. A relatively new group, having formed just over a year ago, Whale Tooth are rising rapidly, and have shows lined up across the country, as well as an upcoming LP.
