ALL OUT WAR Kickstarter Fundraiser Party @ 461 King St. West (05.31.2013)

AOW-fundraiser-flyer_v4

All Out War is a documentary film about battling in the b-boy scene.
The Trailer looks incredible.
If you like Hip-Hop culture in general, you should not miss this chance to see an advance screening of the film.
Coincidentally, the film makers are raising funds to help get it out to the masses.
Dope artistry and a good cause, what more could you ask for?
Come Thru!!!

The Piston
937 Bloor St W
Music by GENERAL ECLECTIC, SON OF S.O.U.L, Special Guest: DJ SERIOUS
All 45s

Mag 7’s is baaaaaaack!! and at a new venue – The Piston!

“small but mighty” it’s a 45 party!!

Let’s break it down… we got;

GENERAL ECLECTIC (Uma Nota/Footprints.. everywhere – he’s a legend in this town!)

SON OF S.O.U.L (Over funk’d… everywhere – he’s also a legend in this town!)

DJ SERIOUS (Cratery… also everywhere – yup, another legend from tdot!)

If you know, you know…. If you don’t, come see why a lot of these other djs are doing what they’re doing now

For some;
you will have a really good time. you will dance… or think of dancing. you will drink… or think of drinking. you will call your mom… the music will be that good… because these dudes… THESE dudes – are serious party starters and maintainers!

For others;
how exciting is it to watch a dj spin 45s?? I mean, it ain’t easy… for me, it is exhilarating to watch/listen to a dj blend music on the spot with only a minute or two in between, keeping the party moving AND make it sound good… amazing…

I hope you come and enjoy all that they will be serving up!!

GRAPE JUICE @ THE MIDFIELD (05.18.2013)

Grape Juice: Vintage tunes and vintage beverages

#grapejuice

May 18th (And the 3rd Saturday of every month)
Midfield Wine Bar
1434 Dundas st. W
Music by DJ Serious
Soul, Jazz, Funk, & some Random Wierd Shit

Let’s be honest. You’re way past standing in line at the club, getting yelled at by douchebags and cleaning up your best friend’s vomit at the end of the night. So it might interest you to know that there is in fact, an alternative. It’s a place where the people playing the music actually understand the music. Where the guys behind the bar know a little more than opening a fridge and cracking a bottle cap. Nope. It’s not Marineland. But good guess, Sherlock. It’s a new monthly get together at Midfield Wine Bar. With resident DJ’s Serious and Arcee. Grape Juice is all about good wine, good tunes and good people. Lots of soul. Definitely hip-hop. And of course, jazz. But not that stuck up white tablecloth jazz – that good shit. We hope you’ll join us. Of course, if getting yelled at by douchebags is kind of your Saturday night thing, we understand if you can’t make it.
