Steve Aoki with MSTRKRFT

Steve Aoki with MSTRKRFT at Tattoo


Last Sunday Tattoo Rock Parlour got steamy for a wintery Toronto night with a house-packed full of young party goers who were craving to see DJ Steve Aoki (a.k.a Kid Millionaire) and famous mySpace superstar Uffie.

As I was coming through the doors, I heard the news that Uffie didn't make it to Toronto. This would be the second time she missed an appearance in the city. Luckily local heros MSTRKRFT came to the rescue and were added as the supporting act.

I can just imagine MSTRKRFT, sitting at home, chilling, watching some Planet Earth, and then they get the call from Tattoo. Next thing you know they run into the KRFTMVL and save the party! Yeah!!!

But beyond MSTRKRFT it must be said that under all that Hollywood hipster facade usually associated with Aoki there lies a pretty good DJ. I have to give him some respect for knowing how to turn-on the crowd. It wasn't too long before the dancefloor was transformed into a mosh pit.
