Audio Blood, an artist and brand development company, held their 4th anniversary party at Sneaky Dee's, and aside from being packed with great people (and perhaps just a wee bit out of control), it also featured sets by Amos The Transparent (a personal favourite), Hands and Teeth, and Rajiv Thavanathan's latest project Secret Connection.
On the day of the release of his new book, 1982, Jian Ghomeshi invited hundreds and hundreds of his closest friends and colleagues to help him celebrate.
Audio Blood Media held one killer party on the Thursday afternoon of NXNE, with sponsorship by Steam Whistle and live music provided by Hue, Mama Rosin, Sandman Viper Command, and The Balconies, among others. The original rooftop party was shutdown due to safety concerns, but good karma was on their side because the riot was back up and running within about 60 minutes on a nearby rooftop with more space. It turned out amazing, with the sun, a breeze, excellent music, and delicious cold beverages.
Something New, an investigative rock journalism show on AUX TV, is now starting its second season and to celebrate, hosts Korey Schaefer and Jordan Bortolotti held a launch party at the relatively new venue/lounge/bar/cabaret Cherry Cola's.
September 21st was International Peace Day — a perfect day for War Child Canada to schedule their annual Busking For CHANGE event.
Last Wednesday made for an interesting evening. With rumours swirling that The Boss was still in the city and about to rock the Horseshoe Tavern, I was becoming apprehensive about attending the TIFF-related soiree at the risk of passing my once in a lifetime opportunity to
hit on meet my favourite man.
