Dirtybird BBQ Toronto

House music & burgers a match at first Dirtybird BBQ

As the temperatures kept rising on Sunday, Toronto welcomed San Fran's deep-house label Dirtybird Records who brought their freshest beats and free BBQ to Sherbourne Common. What started in '00s as recurring parties at Golden Gate Park has launched its first North American tour featuring label head Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Ardalan, and more. Their third stop brought out over 150 Torontonians hungry for burgers by tour chef Grillson and deep house tunes, which lasted until about 10pm.

Doors opened at 1:30pm to what looked like a huge fenced paddock with no trees and barely any shade, but plenty of beer for sale, and a long line for the promised free BBQ. A strict no re-entry policy complemented by a very tight security check at the entrance examining every inch of attendees (who's afraid of Torontonians?) left a rather unpleasant aftertaste, but thankfully new and exciting tracks by the lineup made the sun-burnt sleepy crowd show their best on a giant dance floor.
