Toronto, Prepare to Dance Yourself to Death This Weekend
Toronto queer indie darlings, Dance Yourself To Death, are becoming one hot ticket these days, and thanks to hat-trick style gig booking this Pride Week, they're also making it pretty much impossible for you to miss a performance.
This Thursday, June 26th, catch DYTD performing along with JD Samson (of Le Tigre & MEN) and DJ Nik Red at Libido. 9pm - 2am at the Gladstone Hotel Ballroom.
Saturday afternoon is shaping up to be one of the busiest Pride street concert schedule I've ever seen. Dance Yourself to Death will hit the South Stage at 4pm while comrades Hunter Valentine get things going on the Wellesley Stage at the same time (who thought that was a good idea?).
While you're there, stick around after DYTD's set for The Hidden Cameras and Uh Huh Her (yeah, that's L Word cutie, Leisha Hailey's band) or head over to the Wellesley Stage to hear Fritz Helder & the Phantoms and fight for a spot to see headliner, Mel C, get her gay on.
Hold onto your hat, there's more...
Finally, on Sunday June 29th, the Official Pride Toronto Closing Party, Last Dance, takes over CIRCA nightclub and this ambitious quartet will be workin' the room(s) with none other than RuPaul, Trans X and a mind-blowing list of amazing local queer DJ's. 11pm, 19 plus.
