Where have we been?!
Long time since you've heard from us!
Anyway, after a bit of a hiatus to reconvene and ready ourselves for the rest of July and August, we're back with some new news:
Young Morticians in Love, the CD release party for the compilation of 80s postpunk and coldwave, happens this Friday, July 18th. This will be a lot of fun, as we've brought in the talents of three great bands along with the rostered DJs. It all starts at 9pm on Friday, at the Press Club, which is located at 850 Dundas West, on the north side of the street, just east of Euclid.
FRIENDSHIP, our bi-monthly sit down and drink party at the Ossington, is going strong. This week's will feature a lot of postpunk and new wave, as well as some new disco edits I've dug up. We changed the name back from "Friendship Feels Great" because the general consensus was, the other party is in Vancouver, which is in a different city, in a different province, all the way across the country.
Next week sees the fourteenth installment of FAMILY AFFAIR go down in the 751 basement. This party has been fraught with date changes and bad omens, but this month sees it back to it's secured spot at the last Friday of the month, with DJ #1 Dad bringing out lots of postpunk and especially electro bangers. Special guest Gabe Knox brings his brand of cosmic discosis into the mix this month, so there's no way this party will be anything but good.
Finally, there are no track postings this week because time is not on my side. Stay tuned in the next couple of days for a full weekend report, party photos and more!
