For those who have enjoyed a Sunday at Cherry Beach, dancing to chill beats or relaxing in the shade of the grove, the question among your friends all week has simply been, “Skating?” Tonight from 8 – 11 PM, Promise, known to many as simply “David and Irving”, will be hosting this week’s installation of DJ Skating Nights at the Harbourfront Centre. Skate to an eclectic mix of reggae, disco, house and techno by your selectors Violet, Benjamin Boles and Jonny White.
This is a welcome return of Promise since the pair’s 5-year-long traditional Sunday afternoon gathering was shut down by the police with no explanation. In his Vibes column in NOW last week, Benjamin Boles writes: “A return to the fun underground vibe of guerilla parties like Promise events at Cherry Beach would be a big boost in 2007.”
We are always amazed at how ice skating, planned or not, is always a chance to run into people you haven’t seen in ages.
