Is there a regular TIL crowd, and if yes, are they as 'special' as the drake hotel crowd?


Surface in Ottawa would be hype... that's a nice, little space and only a few hours away!

No idea. But, I know when I saw Hawtin @ Kabin, he did bring in a real mix of people from techno-heads to Barbi-Stripper types, sooo *shrug* - either way, I'll be there. Theres not much that would make me miss out on this. Hell, if this was at the Guvt I'd suck it up and go :)

But, judging from most of the SoHo threads (Thats TIL's Friday night), its not as stuck-up as the Sat nights.

Awesome...
this looks good. I will try and go. Maybe Toronto, Detroit AND Montreal...
does anyone else predict that these dates might fall into both the DEMF festival and Mutek? or are they just close to the festival dates?

yawn, techno people are better than other people and can't be around people in polo shirts and nice shoes, bla bla...

I doubt any other promoters/venues in this city could and would shell out the kind of cash it takes to books these guys.

i don't mind TIL as a venue, just think it will be pretty packed in there for this.

Two questions:

1) How much am I going to have to grease the door staff just to get in?

2) Anybody aware of any BRITISH bums downtown with whom I can barter booze for clothes?

I'll just be sure to show up early for this one (ie: doors opening) just so I dont need to deal with the lineup crap outside that seemed to happen with Sanchez.

mutek finale ! NICE :D

I hope not. Marc Houle Aside, Mutek can throw a lot more interesting finale then a M_nus showcase. That's not to diss M_nus, and I'd be down with hearing them.. I would just hate to see the eclectic Sunday jams that usual close out mutek be a label showcase, or well, a m_nus showcase. I also hope that the M_nus tour showcases newschool M_nus artists like Tractile, Ryan Crosson, etc.

Do we really need to hear any more about Troy Pierce and Magda? There is no point even talking about Richie, but these two cats are so incredibly overexposed..

agreed. pierce is a pretty average programmer if ya ask me. i think he gets gigs for his looks.

ritchie's dj'ing/live thing is still on another level. anyone who disagrees, it's just the ego talkin.

holy crap I can't believe people are still ragging on TIL. Been there twice in clothes I go to any club in and walked straight in to a packed club with no hassle. Just don't dress like a bum and don't show up at the door with attitude. The staff there are great and I can think of a ton of clubs with much stricter door policies.

Maybe if you techno heads got your heads out of your asses and actually went and spent money at bars you would have more influence on thier policies.

Though I've never been to TIL, and I can totally see why this tour would book there ($$, no sketchiness, reliable) it really makes me think two things:

1.) It's so pathetic and sad that clubs in Toronto are always named after a club from NYC or Chicago, or, in this case, the name suggests that it would be more "authentic" had the club really been from London, UK. I don't know why that is, but it's sad.

2.) Someone should open a mid-sized club, because if Richie and Laurent are getting booked at TIL, it certainly means there's a lack of venues. If you build it, they will come... (and no disrespect to TIL... apart from the name, they are obviously doing something right... thumbs up Charles..)

I doubt they booked this event at TIL because there was nowhere else to book it.

Probably more has to do that the owner of the club and booking agent have a long running reputation for dealing with some of the biggest talent in the world including Richie and Laurent.

True. But there aren't really any other clubs of this size that could host this night either. Toronto has a serious lack of 300-600 ppl venues. Anything of that size is automatically turned into a bottle-service, 905-zone for the cheap, glitzy gino crowd. I absolutely believe there is a market for someone to do something.. and not more prog house sheeze... London has Fabric, Barcelona has Nitsa, Tokyo has Yellow, Womb and Module... and we have.... um... nothing. Footwork is amazing, mind you, but in a different league size-wise...

this I agree with, but I disagree that's why they are being booked there...richie has played to both a packed guv and a packed kool haus before. he doesn't need a small venue - and actually, I think TIL is a crappy venue for 4 Mnus headliners as it seems to close at 5:30 generally, and there seem to be 2 locals opening.
