The Rump Shaker: June 12–18

2008_06_12rumpshaker.jpgIt’s a special edition of the Stone’s Throw MOVE Toronto party as label head Peanut Butter Wolf will be headlining the night. Working since the Golden Era of hip hop where he partnered with Charizma as a duo, Peanut Butter Wolf overcame Charizma’s tragic death to found the label that now houses acclaimed acts like Madlib, MF Doom, and Jay Dee. With impeccable tastes in artists, you can expect Peanut Butter Wolf to spin a funky set along with Stones Throw cohorts, Arabian Prince, James Pant, and Egon.
CiRCA is presenting the most officially dangerous Much Music Video Award afterparty on Sunday night. After years of getting screwed by the biz, Kardinal Offishall has linked up with Akon, who, despite some controversy, has been ruling the charts for the past couple of years. They will be making an appearance at their afterparty and DJ Starting From Scratch will be supplying the beats.
Don’t miss the latest edition of Everyone’s a DJ. This democratic dance party brings together sixteen DJs of varying skill levels who have to prove if they have the skills to move the crowd. Catch the fever in its newest location at Disgraceland on Bloor.
