FUNDRAISER | Pressure Drop - Heavyweight Boxing Night
Pressure Drop goes down tonight at The Embassy. This Boxing Day tradition is happening once again this evening, with a sweet selection of skilled stylus mavens, including A Man Called Warwick, Anousheh, Brendan Canning, Iron Will, K Zar, Moose Jah, and Senor Vishal. This is slated to be an awesome night of music with a seriously diverse playlist, and it's for a great cause. All proceeds from your cover go to the Daily Bread Food Bank--go to this event and make a difference, while having a great time.
Embassy Bar (223 Augusta Avenue) 9PM $10

MUSIC | What's In The Box 2012
Tonight begins a special mini music fest that is slowly becoming a TO Holiday season tradition: What's In The Box. For five nights, you'll get five bands for five bucks - a seriously awesome deal that nearly treads into "Christmas miracle" territory, were it not for the fact that it's now happening every year during Boxing Week. This year's selection of musical talent includes local faves Badbadnotgood, Ark Analog, a Diamond Rings DJ set, Moon King, Zeus, and other notables. Tonight, you can catch Sandman Viper Command with July Talk and The Beverleys.
The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen Street West) 8PM $5

PARTY | 5th Annual Boxing Day Party
The Estonian House is where some good times will be at tonight. With two floors, and ten DJs lined up, this is looks promising: DJs Danilo, Duck, Geronimo, Gury Gury, Nilson and others are ready to make this one of the last big blowouts of the year. One dance floor will be entirely dedicated to Kizomba and Zouk, and the other featuring Salsa, Cha-Cha and Bachata. To top things off, there will be live performances by, Latin Groove Productions,, and more.
The Estonian House (958 Broadview Avenue) 7PM $20

When the folks at Footwork say "Old School", they aren't kidding around. Tonight, you can expect a trip back to the vintage Toronto rave and club scene of the '90s. Chris Sheppard is the headliner tonight: the man behind the Pirate Radio sessions, Love Inc, and BKS will show you exactly why all TO DJs are indebted to his trailblazing. Other heavies being featured tonight include Mark Oliver, MC Flipside, Manzone & Strong, Dr. Trance, and others not to be missed. Tonight's hosts are Robb G, Jon Jon, Andy D, Kristin Insley, Lauren Hazzan, Sasha Niveole, and Miz Megs.
Footwork (425 Adelaide Street West) 9PM
