    but the crowd still needs some working on

    anyway about the music
    manzone and strong, great team what can i say...WHAT!! that track is the iSH!!
    paranoid jack only got like a half hour or so to play so even tho he laid down good tracks it went by too fast

    Yeah, a really good night indeed ...

    Club 108 is like a 2nd home to me on thursdays, especially since I live right around the block from it. The vibe there is all about having fun and enjoying the good music.

    This week, Manzone & Strong started off the night at 10pm as they normally would, but instead of going on until 3am like they normally would, they finished their set at 12:30am. As usual their set was good, but since they're LTA on EnergyRadio, they couldn't educate the crowd like they normally would, instead they had to follow format, which held them back from playing their good stuff (the stuff they usually play after 1:30am). Paranoid Jack was up next and he spun for an hour, until 1:30am. Very good set by PJ, with some really good progressive tracks. Following PJ was Mr. Gene Ferris all the way from Chicago ... I didn't know what to expect from his set, and he impressed me a lot. Good tracks straight from the beginning including one of my current favourites "La La Land" by Green Velvet. The place shut down at 3am as usual, with Gene Ferris doing some comic relief along with Flipside when the club was closed. There were a lot of big Toronto names there (Joee Cons, Addy, Vench, Flipside, Stretch & Hooker, Gene Ferris, Paranoid Jack, Manzone, Strong, etc.)

    Definitely a good night ... can't wait until the next big DJ they bring in.

    I thought it was torture

    the dj's were good, not my music though as Iam into the more progressive side of things

    it was cool hearing green velvet- la la land though

    so I cant rate them since i dont like house, but technically they were great

    On terms of atmosphere, I have never been to a worse club in my life. Rude people, drunken losers, ugly girls, thugs

    i just kept counting until it was time to go.......
