Vancouver comic Sara Bynoe will read from the words of Sarah Palin.

Toronto Time
A Condom Shack in Hogtown in 1925? Good lord, the bowler-hat and tea-gown wearers back in the day would have died of prophylactic shock. By merging archival photos of Toronto with new shots taken in the exact same location, photographer Harry Enchin clashes eras and creates a ghostly juxtaposition, while offering a time-warping snapshot of the city's evolution. To Oct. 26. Free. Akasha Art Projects, 511 Church St., 647-348-0104 or akashaart.com

Brazil, the Land of Tears and Soul
"Finally, Brazil's time has come." So says Newton Moraes, choreographer and founder of Newton Moraes Dance Theatre. The company's new production explores the diversity and complexity of Brazilian culture. And if Brazil is coming alive, so to is Mr. Moraes. The pieces, which use Afro-Brazilian and contemporary movements, reflect the dancemaker's own awakening following the loss of his partner of 23 years. Sept. 14, 8 p.m. $10 to $25. Betty Oliphant Theatre, 404 Jarvis St., newtonmoraesdancetheatre.com

Sam Cash and the Romantic Dogs
Cashes do not grow on trees, but they do grow on Queen Street. Sam Cash, son of the well-known local musician (and now member of Parliament) Andrew Cash, launches his band's new album Stand Together, Fall Together at the Cameron House, a storied venue with which his father is no doubt familiar. The music is crunching, tight and tumbling rock, robust enough to shake a room and lyrically compelling enough that a family legacy is commendably furthered. Sept. 14, 10 p.m. $10 (includes a CD). 408 Queen St. W., 416-703-0811.

Say Wha?!
Read it and weep – with joy. A couple of years ago, Gordon Pinsent over-dramatically read from the memoir of Justin Bieber to hilarious effect. In that vein, fans of ironic humour will enjoy the scene when comics such as Vancouver's Sara Bynoe read from unintentionally uproarious prose, from heaving-bosom romance novels to the bizarre, maverick-y thoughts of Sarah Palin. Sept. 15, 7 p.m. Comedy Bar, 945 Bloor St. W., 416-551-6540 or comedybar.ca.

Margaret Atwood
Now that it's finished, can we call it a thrillogy? The iconic Canadian author has wrapped up her three-book series of post-apocalypse fiction with MaddAddam, the capper that follows 2003's Oryx and Crake and 2009's The Year of the Flood. The critiques have been positive; Globe reviewer J. Robert Lennon praised the novel's "quietly thrilling conclusion" as the move of a patient master. The author chats and autographs on Sunday. Sept. 15, 1 p.m. Free. Indigo Manulife Centre, 55 Bloor St. W., indigo.ca/events.
