The Music That Moves Us…download it free!

What do we listen to?  Anything that has a really good beat, something we can dance to.  Not techno, not hard rock, nothing that requires the ingestion of large amounts of drugs (or even small amounts) to appreciate.  A mix of rock, rap, hip/hop, house, a little reggae, and perhaps even small doses of soca infused into a hot set by a knowledgeable DJ can really move a crowd.  And if it moves the crowd, it will move us.  Our favorite DJ’s who play these fabulous sets are DJ AM (Adam Goldstein), Samantha Ronson, and Toronto’s very own Chris LaRoque.  At the end of the night if we still haven’t gotten enough of a musical fix, there is always the afterparty for all the beautiful people at RAW UNDERGROUND from 2a:m until 7:30a:m on a Friday or Saturday.  At RAW you can hear everything we are giving you on our free download.  Yes, download 24 of our favorite tracks for free here, while the link lasts.

Happy listening!

Usher’s Official After Party at This Is London – Nov 8th, 2008

usherafterparty

Usher is performing in Toronto at Kool Haus, and the after party promises to be a sexy affair.  The One Night Stand Ladies Only concert tour kicked off this weekend in Atlantic City.  For this tour, Usher has been given a fashion makeover by DSquared2 with clothing ranging from super crisp tuxedos, to a silk robe and slippers!  The promoters of this event at This is London say he is going to be hosting it.  That remains to be seen.  However, with DJ Chris La Roque spinning Mash Up House, R&B and Rock, you are guaranteed to have a great time!

Fashion Cares Now Coincides With Halloween

Fashion sCares, the Halloween Edition 2008.

The 22nd annual gala (in support of the AIDS Committee of Toronto) Fashion Cares, aptly called Fashion sCares is set for Saturday, November 1, 2008.  It will be a Halloween-themed extravaganza “imagine Haute Couture meets Halloween meets Paris is Burning and you’ve got an idea of where we’re going,” says Michael King, the 2008 Chair.

Fashion Cares is a mecca for the cross-dressing, ambi-sexual, freakazoid.  To be a straight married person in this context, one would wonder if you somehow go yourselves lost.

This years show promises a marked difference from the one that took place in May 2008 at the ill-equipped Distillery District, and left many in attendance dissatisfied, chilly, and confused.

The event returns to the Metro Convention Centre and the $125.00/person tickets can be obtained here.

  • Cocktail Reception and Silent Auction starting at 8PM
  • Show (Starts at 10PM)
  • After Party at Metro Toronto Convention Centre
  • Access to the After Party at Circa at a discounted rate

Ultra – Fri Sept 12, 2008 Event Review

This was supposed to be a party hosted by Lindsay Lohan while her very talented girlfriend, Samantha Ronson DJ’ed.  Samantha showed up and ran a very hyped set for the last hour or so that Ultra remained open while Lindsay we discovered, stayed in a corner and texted on her celly.  Only those in the very front row who craned their necks got to peep her.

Ultra charged everyone $25.00 – $30.00 at the door regardless of whose guestlist you were on, and even if you arrived there at 9:00pm.

Lesson learned: Beware of the hype!  Here is the video.
