k-OS Live @ Toronto Star Bandshell, Bandshell Park, Exhibition Grounds, Toronto, ON - Fri Sept 2nd!


K-OS, born Kevin Brereton, is a genuine neo-crossover rap n' roller whose music, much like your iPod, embraces hipster club kidz, pop chart gazers, Canadian indie rockers, dirty south electronic rap renegades, or reggae rude boys simultaneously. His hit songs include: Sunday Morning, Heaven Only Knows, B-Boy Stance, Crabbuckit, Man I Used to Be and I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman. On Yes! his fourth album, K-OS consolidated everything he's done before, merging it with where his musical head is at now.

In 2010, the Vancouver based artist released The Anchorman Mixtape and this year we eagerly anticipate both his fifth studio album, BLack on BLond and his debut on the CNE Bandshell.

Time: 7:30pm

Calling all Old School freaks, party people, music LOVERS, GoodTimes Fam !

Saturday August 27th 2011 "GoodTimes" The Original 80's & 90's Old School Boogiedown Returns to the heart of the city; The Hard Rock Cafe located at 279 Yonge ( AKA Dundas Square ). Music provided by Toronto's dream team : Megahertz Music ( Sedeuce & Flash Gordon ), and ShowKase The Entertainer.

Long story short; You KNOW you're going to get your money's worth. You KNOW we don't mess around when it comes to the music at this party. You KNOW you're going to hear everything from MJ to Madonna, Barry White to Buju, Biggie to Blackstreet, Monica to Machel and the list goes on and on.

Ask anyone that's been to this party over the past 7 years if any of the following statements are false :

- No wallflowers
- No posers
- room FULL of true MUSIC LOVERS
- the most variety of music you'll hear anywhere
- there is no "warm up time"
- people are on the floor and breaking a sweat from jump
- promoters/DJs regularly tell ladies NOT to wear heels, because you WILL
fling em off when the party starts goin
- you WILL ask yourself whether "you're actually hearing this song right now" at LEAST once

This time not only do we bring the madness of music that has allowed us to keep this party going on a monthly/bi-monthly basis for 7 YEARS consistently, but due to the release of the Tribe Called Quest Documentary recently; we deem it proper to pay the right respect and love to one of the most influential groups in MUSIC - PERIOD.

So break out your "GoodTimes Gear", dust off your floor stompin, slam dancin, "F*#k these heels im in GoodTimes and I wanna DANCE HARD" shoes. Come Saturday the 27th ShowKase & Megahertz bring back "GoodTimes" to the Hard Rock Cafe. Lets see how sturdy the walls are and whether the furnaces can withstand old time Toronto treatment.

* PLEASE NOTE - If you want to book a Birthday Booth PLEASE do so ASAP as we are guaranteed to run out of reservations very quickly.

Socaholics @ Viva City, North York, ON - Sat Aug 20th!


SOCAHOLICS ANONYMOUS - A WINE IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE!!

Socaholics Anonymous is all about the celebration of we (OUR) music. Soca is one of the fastest growing genres of music in the world; with that being said we must always "remember where we came from" in order to know where we are headed. The music that night will try to touch every aspect of Soca and Calypso from the pioneers of soca like Roaring lion and the Mighty Sparrow to current stars such as Bunji Garlin, Skinny Fabulous and Machel Montano. For the first time Socaholics-please don't come to the DJ area at 10:30 asking for "2011 Soca"; we have the entire night for that.. Look out for "Artist sets"- 3 or 4 songs by a particular artist in a row at certain times throughout the night. We may start with a current hit then mix right into one of their early hits... You will be surprised at the songs that are so easily forgotten after each "Soca Season".

We just ask that all of you Socaholics and first time Socaholics come to VIVA CITY on Saturday August 20th with an open mind- Soca Sweetness, D'Enforcas, Mr Playhouse and yours truly Soca Monarchs International will take it from there. Remember ..
"A WINE IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE"

"After a lengthy hiatus, the original all soca (and one reggae tune) fete who's name alone spawned countless imitations, websites, soundcrews ect - all while adding a term to the west indian lexicon (look it up lol)- is back..."

As we gather to celebrate our culture of vibrance, we remember where we come from, who we are, and what will always be... United in our love of soca music. On Saturday Aug 20th inside Viva City, we the socaholics support group ( Soca Sweetness , D'Enforca's Mr Playhouse, Eman and yours truly) ask...

ARE YOU A SOCAHOLIC?
"There is an addiction which makes people drunk with energy and excitement,
Those people with this affliction are commonly known as SOCAHOLICS"
