Torontoist Grooves: Dance Music This Weekend

Friday, October 13th:
Count Choc-U-Litis
2006_10_12Raver.jpgA bunch of unknowns at a tiny Ossington bar on Friday the 13th wouldn’t normally sound like a recipe for awesome times, but don’t be fooled by the lack of celebrity on the bill: Miss Screech and her undead glam-rock posse are nothing short of stars. The up and coming electro goddess made her debut in some of Toronto’s trendiest clothing boutiques, of all places, and her surprising set at WEMF 2006 began with an old school Ghostbusters record. Who could resist?

The Sparrow, 92 Ossington Ave.
19+ // free

Stabby Stabby
Another unsurprising installation at Reverb/Holy Joe’s, the lineup looks surprisingly promising: Knifehandchop, Robotpilot and Xofer will be busting out live PA “ravecore”, breakcore and some dirty breaks, respectively. We can’t wait for the “ultimate mungle* battle”, either.

Saturday, October 14th:
The night (some of) you have all been waiting for, Fast Forward is already the 9th most-attended event in the history of PureRave (and the first three were WEMFs). This event is clearly going to be something epic, although we wonder how the crowd mix is going to play out.
Fast Forward promises to be an important chapter in the story of the strange interactions between two increasingly polarized communities: the all-ages, fun fur-wearing, binkie-chewing, glowstick-toting, candy-raver happy hardcore fans, and the towel-swinging, camouflaged bohtastic rinsebots of the drum ‘n bass/jungle scene.
Featuring huge names like Nicky Blackmarket, Skibadee and Shabba for the DnB side of things is just the start of it: what makes Fast Forward one to watch is the second Toronto appearance of professional hypnotist Anabolic Frolic since the final Hullabaloo. The addition of DJ’s from Goodfellaz and Nocturnal Commissions makes it only more tempting.

* Mungle is a mixture between death metal and jungle. Seriously.
