Level 2, Teck Gallery Coffee Bar
8-11 pm

Lily Frost:
Singer songwriter Lily Frost is a rare bird from Canada’s musical woods. Frost has always danced the line between indie and jazz, thus creating a niche of her own. Frost draws from her real life experiences in her lyrics – in performance, there is an intimacy, a gentle passion that can take you somewhere else and evokes a certain nostalgia – the rainy streets of Paris, a winter picnic or perhaps a beat café in San Francisco. This rarity and distinctiveness can be found on her latest offering, Do What You Love.

Have a drink, sit back, relax and listen to some of the best Toronto vocalists and musicians!
Level 4, GlassRoom Lounge

9-11 pm
