Groove is in the Heart ... All 90's All Night @ Blind Tiger, Toronto, ON - Sat Feb 28th!


TORONTO!

SMALL VENUE . BIG DJ . The series continues ...

This instalment is called “Groove Is In The Heart” & will be all about the 90’s, BUT this time Scratch will be focusing on the amazing radio hits of that era (examples to follow) … Get ready for a dang good party.

Since, most 90′s parties are primarily urban, and play … well the same boring stuff - Groove is in the Heart will break the norm.

DJ Starting from Scratch will be playing all those great 90’s Radio Anthems, Pop, Dance, Rock, Alternative & some commercial Urban stuff that we used to listen to on the radio back in the day. All those 90′s hits we knew word-for-word and jammed to … even if it wasn’t our particular genre (we all knew em’ right?!) … essentially, the music that we all know & love but never get to hear in a club setting anymore …

Here is a taste of what you’ll get at “Groove Is In The Heart”:

Pop – Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, N’Sync, Spice Girls, The Goo Goo Dolls, Savage Garden, The Cardigans, NKOTB, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, etc …
Dance – Deee Lite, Black Box, Marky Mark, Londonbeat, Cathy Dennis, Ace Of Base, Technotronic, Robin S, Reel 2 Real, Everything But The Girl, etc …
Alternative/Rock – The Cure, Depeche Mode, Alanis, Nirvana, Spin Doctors, Green Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blur, Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth, R.E.M., EMF, etc …
Urban – Salt N Pepa, Arrested Development, PM Dawn, MC Hammer, En Vogue, C+C Music Factory, etc

As you can see, this isn’t a party catered to the masses, which is the point … we’re doing these events in and around Toronto for our fellow music lovers & more importantly, for those that love to come out & just have fun … We are not doing these parties to sell out booths for bottle popping or to look cool in the corner, we produce these to fill a musical void in our own lives & in the lives of those out there that still care about a really good party …

This is a Guest List Only event & you must email info@startingfromscratch.com to get on the list & to come party with us.

The event is being held at the newly renovated Blind Tiger (formerly Neck Of The Woods), at 559 College St. in Toronto. If you live in or visiting the weekend of February 28th, this will be the place to be.

Black Future Month Opening Reception - The 3rd Annual Afrofuturism Art Exhibition @ OCAD University, Toronto, ON - Sun Feb 22nd! Runs until Fri Mar 6th!


BLACK FUTURE MONTH 3015
The 3rd Annual Afrofuturism Art Exhibition
Curated by Danilo McCallum
Sponsored by OCAD U
https://www.facebook.com/blackfuturemonth3015

The Black Future Month 3015 Exhibition is a platform for artists, designers and multi-media creatives who identify as Black to explore Afrofuturism and the infinite possibilities of our distant future. In authoring our own visions of the future, we are shaping our own destinies.

#BlackFutureMonth3015
#BFM3015

Featuring work from:

Quentin “Vercetty” Lindsay, Ekow Nimako, Ola Ojo, Javid JAH, Komi Olaf, So Tee Oh, Chris Ak, Danilo McCallum, Odinamaad, Aaron Jones, Danisha Nugent, Stephen Surlin, Curtia Wright, Kanyika Yorke, and Dheeko Kinte.

BFM3015 OCADU Organizing Committee:
Lillian Allen, Quentin Babatundé VerCetty, Shamina Chherawala, Jade Lee Hoy, Camille Isaac, Andrea Fatona.

Black Future Month 3015 takes place in February at OCAD University on the year of its 125th anniversary. Known for being a leader in forward creative thinking and innovation OCAD U is a spectacular home for this exhibition that captures the visions of Black creatives imagining the great possibilities of our distant future.

The exhibition includes Black artists, designers and multi-media creatives across all disciplines. Painting, photography, 3-D rendering, laser printing, graphic design, illustration, Lego sculpture, performance art, dub, spoken word, audio soundscapes, video projection and architecture.

The over-aching theme of the Black Future Month initiative is a collective look into our far-off distant future as Black people. 3015. This quantum leap into the future, takes us not only 50 or even 100 years ahead, but 1000 years. The distant date is meant to provide a platform that enables us to break from the historic ties of oppression still prominent today. 3015 opens the imagination up to perspectives as
far as the limits of our psyche can allow. It offers an opportunity to imagine healthy utopic Black realities, oppose to merely looking into a future world with the advanced technology of hoover-boards and flying cars, where Black people are still facing the same kinds of racial, systemic, and mental oppressions.

Starships and time travel, Black holes, black magic, mysticism, past, present and future energies, ancestral memories, astral travelling, alternate states of consciousness, Black identity and representations, the effects of technology on culture, and messages from the ether are all subjects reflected on in this exhibition. All brought together through the lens of Afrofuturism.

Location:  OCAD University, 100 McCaul Street, Toronto, ON

Time:  6:00pm - 10:00pm

Admission:  FREE

In Conversation with Kid Capri @ Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, ON - Sun Feb 22nd!


IN CONVERSATION WITH...KID CAPRI and COMBAT JACK

When you combine two iconic figures in hip-hop history, you get a very rare and special occasion of open discussion not just about music, but about the culture. On February 22nd, Combat Jack - host of the podcast The Combat Jack Show, and legendary DJ Kid Capri will be sitting down to speak candidly about the history of hip-hop and it's growth since the late 70s when it was birthed. Speaking on an array of topics from where did the DJ come from to how has reality TV impacted hip-hop culture, Combat Jack and Kid Capri will surely provide a wealth of knowledge for both a new hip-hop generation and the 80s babies who grew up with it.

DJ Kid Capri is a trailblazing hip hop artist, internationally renown DJ & Grammy winning producer in conversation with host Combat Jack, NYC journalist and podcast personality.

There will be a rush line for those who haven't RSVP'd. There are NO guarantees.

This program is presented in partnership by the ROM, FACTOR and Manifesto Community Projects

Bettye Lavette
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21
WITH SPECIAL GUESTS THE WALKERVILLES

At the heart of the Bettye LaVette story, is the notion of creative survival. It is her voice that both announces and ensures that survival; it is her voice that, no matter how dire the circumstances, lets you know that she will not be denied. It is her voice that compels you to listen to every word she says, sings or writes.

That voice - rough, tender, sensuous and soaring - is an instrument of inspiration.
