It’s hard out there for a scenester these days. So many parties, so many DJs, so many Next Big Things… and so few brain cells to spare. We all know how important it is to like the right stuff, but between finding hot new ways to wear neon headgear (hint: there aren’t any) and figuring out which prescription drugs don’t mix, who has the mental energy to figure what exactly that stuff is?
That’s why Toronto has cool kid collective More Proof. The incestuous party family consistently breeds the hypest trends for those of us too lazy to make our own tastes. And they don’t just tell you what to like, they show it off, throwing multimedia parties that bring the best of the blog hype to the block.
Saturday night, the queue to be in is outside the Drake, where the Underground-dwelling More Proofers are hosting DJ du jour Felix Cartal. The Vancouver-based electro artist has been getting worldwide web praise for making American Appareled scenesters bounce to Ashlee Simpson. He’s also done some pretty rad remixes of dance tracks by Social-ite faves MSTRKRFT and Dragonette.
Time for Toronto to return the love. If you wear metallic tights, drink anything with Red Bull, and type words without vowels, you’ll SRSLY love this dance party. $5 cover, 10 p.m. doors.
