Is it 7PM EST on Monday September 23rd 2013? Congratulations! You can watch the entire Polaris Prize gala, live-streaming right now. It's almost as fun as the real thing, except without the hors d'ourves, free booze, and the crippling pressure to mingle.
The pre-show kicks things off at 7, with the actual gala at 8PM EST. There will be performances by this year's nominees, including Zaki Ibrahim, Metric, METZ, Purity Ring, A Tribe Called Red, Whitehorse, and Young Galaxy. Appearing in place of Godspeed You! Black Emperor will be a green glass bottle of ancient fog from a haunted lake that dried up years ago.
