Beats and Breaks Festival

Thanks to anyone who helped out with the Surprise party, it was wicked to see you all come out.
Miss. B was totally surprised and she had a great time. THANK YOUUUUUU!
After the madness of last weekend, we're taking it easy this weekend and checking out the Street Festival and the Harbourfront Beats and Breaks festival. Both are 3 day events starting on Friday, with most of the fun stuff (for me anyway) happening that night.

Our (very loose) plans so far are...

Friday July 7:
Dinner-thinking seafood somewhere (suggestions?) If you jerks are coming out, I want to make reserves.
Arthur Oskan(TO) on the Main Stage (techno)
The Juan Maclean(NYC) Main Stage (Electro-Live performance/band)
9:30-Feeding and drinkings &
Prefuse 73 on the main stage
MSTRKRFT (live? DJ set more likely) with mixMotion visuals..oooh
1:30?-Juan (John) MacLean (solo DJ set)
and maybe the G416 Sunnyside Pavillion party with Joe Claussel hmm $20...
Sat July 8:
King Sunshine (huge live band Funky/Soul)
5pm -
off to Yonge and Eg - see below...
Jamie Lidell (Anythings possible from Soul to electro)
TONE Party at Cherry Beach:Dietrich Schoenemann/Side4 NYC and Tom Kuo (j likey)

artwork for this party looks a lot like the Jtronforce Pandadance art?
Sunday July 9:
InsideAMind (live Turntable composition)
Mark de Clive-Lowe (UK) (BreakyJazzyHousey)

Celebrate Toronto Street Festival
A few years back during the glorious fun that SARS was, I was up at Yonge and Davisville in a tiny little bachelor and still paying a ludicrous $850/month. Having little to no cash because of my crushing OSAP debt (still crushing FYI). I was lucky enough to have Big Sugar play steps away at Eglinton. This year most definitely lacking in the musical guest category, but I think I'm going to check this out....
Saturday @ Yonge and Eglington Outdoor Stage
5 pm
Panic & The Rebel Emergency
This unique collaboration layers dancehall "DJ" vocals over reggae influenced rock music to create a new organic sound that is undeniable in its energy and originality. Their debut album "Captured By A Vision", is an eclectic mix of Rock, Reggae, Dancehall and Ska.
I dunno. their website looks a little boy bandy, but after the amazingly surprising Bedouin Soundclash performance at Oakville Waterfront, I'm allowing for a modicum of label influenced "image management". Bring the goods or I'll pee on your instruments.
