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!

Ultra – Tribute to Prince Party – May 9th, 2008

314 Queen Street
http://www.ultrasupperclub.com

Ultra is still happening in a big way. Not only the the place still gorgeous to be in, promoters are working with Facebook and Myspace to keep this venue fresh enough to keep the crowds coming.

This event involved a “PurpleElectricity Party” tribute to Prince releasing his first album 30 years ago. That album was called “For You” and was released on April 7, 1978, two months shy of his 20th birthday. The most memorable single off the album was “Soft and Wet”. Thankfully, DJ Doctor Baggie, and Chris LaRoque didn’t play many tunes off this debut album in the first half of the night. The projector screen of rare Prince images was a nice touch, as was the purple glow of lights.

The warm up music prior to the main event was fabulous. A whole slew of tunes I had forgotten existed. Music I was only old enough to rollerskate to from the Mary Jane Girls “Candyman” and “In My House” ” and Chaka Khan’s “I Think I Love You”. Then there was an awesome 15 minutes of Madonna with “Lucky Star” “Borderline” “Get into the Groove” and “Holiday”. Every now and then the DJ’s would throw in some Prince sound teasers, but switch back, making your adrenalin flow in a good way. I absolutely adored the vocal house set that then turned into garage house. I give kudos to the DJ’s for really knowing how to move a crowd.

The time for Prince-a-mania had arrived and the set was started off with “When Doves Cry”. By now it was almost one o’clock and we had to get going to another undisclosed venue. I am sure we missed out on some great Prince remixes, but hey…we had a great time at the other venue too.

Scale of 0-10 (10 being the best)
Music – 9 People – 71/2 Ambiance – 8 Love factor – 8
