Guvernment closing Toronto

Guvernment Nightclub finally reveals end times lineup

The Guvernment has been counting down its last days since this past summer, and today they released their final plans for the doomed club, including Knife Party, Armin van Buuren, and Toronto's Deadmau5. The epic three day funeral will take place on January 2015's final weekend, Jan 23-25. Special guest eulogizers also have/will include DVBBS, Zeds Dead, Cosmic Gate, and Danny Tenaglia.

After 17 years in Toronto the venue, Canada's largest and longest running nightclub, will be sorely missed, and while INK has hinted that they have a big plan for Toronto's dance scene, there's no word yet as to what's in store. The Guvernment building itself has been sold to developers, and the running suspicion seems to be that eventually the condo crowd will be bragging to their friends that they live in RPM. I'll back out of this post before people start talking about how I hate fun, but you can read more about the history of the storied venue here.
