TO DO LIST: Tonight – S.S. Songs with DJ Andy Rourke of The Smiths

Songs, A Dance Party was supposed to have rocked its last dance floor back in August… but when The Smiths’ Andy Rourke decided to come aboard, it seemed like a good reason to bring it back for one final encore. Only this time, it’s not your regular land-lubber’s dance floor – no, this one is ON A BOAT.

TONIGHT, you’ll find me getting nautical to the tunes of Stella Ella Ola,

Dwayne Gretzky‘s awesome covers,

and of course, whatever Mr. Rourke chooses while we cruise the shores of Toronto.

There are still tickets left for this voyage – you don’t even have to gamble for them, Leonardo DiCaprio-in-Titanic style! And also the boat is unsinkable! AND EVEN IF IT ISN’T, WE’RE LIKE RIGHT BESIDE TORONTO SO IT’S FINE AND IT’S STILL WARM OUT ANYWAY SO IT’LL TURN INTO A FUN SWIMMING PARTY! Come out and celebrate the end of summer!

Go find out all the details for tonight RIGHT HERE. Ahoy, matey!

It’s all brought to you by the wonderful Young Lions Music Club, purveyors of fine unconventional events.

(Oh, and although this has been completely overdone – I can’t let an opportunity like this just slip by. And, anyway, we all know that SOMEONE is going to drunkenly try to sing this tonight:)

TO DO LIST: Tonight – Brews Willis @ Parts & Labour

Brews Willis

Just because it’s the end of August doesn’t meant that summer is over. In fact, summer can last forever, if you get Brews Willis‘ new LP Nerped By A Zircon into your music library right now. 

And what better a way to kick off our new Forever Summer than going to see Brews Willis themselves at Parts & Labour TONIGHT? Don’t put away those flippy-floppies or that pastel coloured tank top or those short shorts yet… they have at least ONE more sweaty, beer-filled, random-person-makey-outey night left in ’em! I mean, with songs called “Sun Burn Boner Boy” and “Turbo Babe Acid Hammer,” how could this not end up being one of the best nights of your life?

To get you in the mood, here’s the video for their new song “Ride The Island Baby.” You LOVE the Island, remember?! YES YOU DO!

They’ll be hitting the stage at 11:45pm at Parts & Labour, followed at midnight by Invasions, who are definitely worth sticking around for. If you’re a fan of messy fun, beachy punk music, Black Lips, PBRs, wet hair, colours, life and spilling your drink on strangers and having them hug you instead of punch you, then you should probably be there.
