On Saturday, January 30th, Long Winter will take over Toronto’s most elusive shopping centre, filling the dimly-lit hallways of The Galleria Mall with live music, dancing, and art installations. We had a dream about this once, and are ecstatic that one of the west ends greatest mysteries will now host some of the best local acts.

Here’s the hot lineup so far, with more to be revealed soon:


New Fries
The Highest Order

It’s Not U It’s Me present SHOPPERS DANCE MART, inside one of the malls empty store fronts

Art and Installations
Jonathan Carrol and Ben Macarthy
Andrew Lamb
Laura Dawe

With the soon-to-come wrecking bomb, this will be both a celebration of the magic that was, and an exuberant farewell to a space that has always conjured up deep thinking.
