Heather’s Weekend Party Picks for Sept 21, 22 and 23

No Comments

The Toronto party forecast is looking mighty fine this weekend. Here are my top party picks for those of you looking for places to dance the week’s stress away.

Friday Sept 21

BOX OF KITTENS: House heads rejoice! Box of Kittens are back and ready to party. What makes this party even better is the mystery of it all! Not only is the location a super low key spot but one of their headliners is unannounced…you have to show up to find out. My best guesses are Narcotic Syntax or James Dean Brown….???

LeeLee Mishi, in addition to the BOK residents (Hali, Mike Gibbs, Fabio Palermo) will be throwin’ down some beatz. Check her out:


ZERO-PERCENT: Techno if you dare! Zero-Percent are my BOYS, not only because they are  all handsome and charming but because they throw sick techno parties. The Dynacord sound system they use is off the chain and their talent roster will make you dance your pants off. This is the party to go to if you are looking for some serious TECHNO. 

Ovi M will be playing alongside some of the Zero-Percent usual suspects…including Dj Pauze.

Here’s a review I wrote about one of their badass jams, Zero- Percent Sektion 1. You can check out live mixes from their past parties here: Zero-Percent Live Sets.

DANNY BYRD: Soul in Motion has been scratching the DnB itch for Toronto for the past ten years, but once again they’ve really busted out some big guns! If you wanna rinse out to one of the world’s most talented drum and bass Djs and producers, come to Aurum Room Friday night to sweat it the fuck out.

Alongside Danny Byrd, A-Sides will also be bringing dnb love from the UK. The rest of their line-up of locals is killer….so bust out your hi-tops and wear your knee braces…its time to get DOWN!


Saturday Sept 22

MIZ MEGS BIRTHDAY JAM!: This party is going to be a rave and a half! Some serious house and tech-house will be laid down this Saturday at Basement.  Not only is the legendary MC Flipside playing, but Loopity Goofs, Chris Vench and Miz Megs herself will be making party patrons lose their shit! So…. get your ass to Queen and Bathurst for a good time!

Here’s a sick set from MC Flipside that rocked CZ:


Sunday Sept 23

METRONAUTIX SOLSTICE: Perhaps the last outdoor party of 2012….! Remedy that weekend hangover with some more drankin’ and house music at Neon Bar from 3 until 9 pm. Music will be provided by some locals that will make you forget that its just a tad cold out.

Jeremy Sean, Boots Boogie, Shanelle Williams, Kid Tronic will help you cope that Monday (and Winter) is just around the corner.

Have a fantastic weekend.
