on to the next one

Picture is of a REVOK & NORM (MSK,AWR, 7th Letter) piece that was commissioned for the Montreal Stock Exchange.

Today's post is going to feature something we're going to try and do a lot more of, which is promoting parties in our hometown of Montreal. We've been awfully lazy these past few months in terms of hitting shows, but now that autumn has officially kicked off, our schedule is lookin' packed. We're trying to get more involved in the local scene, so expect us to promote a lot more Montreal shows in the future. The events that we'll be showcasing today are free (aka NO COVER), which is all sorts of rad. Can't argue with that. The only problem is that both happen to be on the same night. I'm going to be hitting both of them, and I invite you to do the same. They're honestly a 10 minute walk from each other. I've included all the necessary info, as well as a few songs to give you a little taste of what you'll hear on these nights.

Footworkin' # 4

*TIME & DATE: Thursday October 14th, from 10 pm to 3 am
*WHERE: Blizzarts (3956a St-Laurent blvd)
*PRICE: Free
- Brenmar (USA)
- Azamat B (MTL)
- Kid Aloha (MTL)

Footworkin' is a monthly party that Markus from LOL Boys, Azamat B & Kid Aloha throw at the little Blizzarts bar on St-Laurent. They play a very varied selection of music throughout the night, which can go from rnb to house to rap to 2step to juke to whatever. If it makes your ass shake and gets your hands in the air, then they're bound to play it. I've only been to one of these nights so far, the previous one, but it was a great event. Blizzarts is a rather small bar, but it has a very intimate feel to it, which is great for late night groovin.

This particular edition of Footworkin features the one and only Brenmar, who we blogged about not too long ago. His unique blend of sexy rnb stylings and club chops will be a great addition to the vibe. Of course, Kid Aloha, Azamat & LOL Boys always hold it down properly, and will definitely have you enjoyin' the hell out of life that night. If you're tired of packed electro events filled with hyperactive kids, and just want to spend the night drinking, relaxing and dancing to great rhythms, dope sounds and fantastic music that can't be pigeonholed, then Footworkin' is your night. Plus, the dudes who organize it are rad, so you don't really have an excuse to miss Footworkin #4, which is on its way to becoming one of Montreal's best monthly parties.

Scion presents: Etienne de Crecy & Classixx

*TIME & DATE: Thursday October 14th from 10 pm to 3 am
*WHERE: Suco Lounge (2108 St-Laurent blvd)
*PRICE: Free with RSVP (Facebook Link below)
- Etienne de Crecy (FR)
- Classixx (USA)
- Duvall (MTL)
- Rilly Guilty (MTL)

Well, this should be an interesting show. Although I would much rather see Etienne de Crecy perform in his famous Cube instead of at the posh Suco lounge, I'll have to settle. Scion is quite well known in the US for throwing a bunch of dope parties, but this is a first for Montreal. They've also made it free with RSVP, which is a really nice touch, considering that electro DJs are charging (deservedly, of course) a lot more for their performances these days. Scion also brought along those Los Angeles kings of disco, Classixx, to spice up the festivities. It's a peculiar touch, adding nu-disco to an electro show, but Classixx always throw down great sets, so I'm not too worried about that.

This is bound to be a really dope show, and given the limited capacity of Suco, it'll probably fill up really quickly, so try and get there early. If you're in the mood to go buck wild next Thursday, then this is probably your best choice. Of course, you're probably going to have to deal with the regulars patrons of Suco, who tend to be on the douchey side, from what I remember, but it comes with the territory, haha. If you're an aficionado of fine disco, or hard-hitting electro music, then we'd suggest that you RSVP as soon as you can, as this is one event that you won't want to miss.
