Never thought it would actually happen, but pot is getting legalized in Canada this month. Granted, there’s only one store in British Columbia where you can buy it, and it’s in Kamloops, but it’s still kind of a win, I guess. American border guards will likely be going through your credit records to see if you’ve bought pot legally so they can bar you for life, though, so you might want to lay low for the next month or so. Best hide yourself in the crowd at some of these shows, and bring cash.
Oct 11 @ Distrikt Nightclub (Victoria)
Los Angeles bass bastard Geoff “Stylust” Reich wasn’t satisfied merely devastating stages at Shambhala and Burning Man with his deep, dark and dangerous EDM. Now he lusts to tear the sleeves off of Victoria. Don’t make him angry or he’ll shake the capital right into the ocean.
October 13 @ Open Studios
Broom has been sweeping across dance floors since the late ’80s, when he stumbled on life altering Chicago and acid sounds in Spain, and took his new passion back to his native U.K. where he cleaned house with sophisticated techno.
Wake The Town YVR w/ Danny Corn, Barisone, PRSN & Shiny Things
October 19 @ Open Studios
Portland invading Vancouver… It makes sense. The crew of the Wake The Town monthly at the Liquor Store in Portland includes Danny Corn and Barisone, no neither of whom are strangers to Bass Coast and Shambhala, but the whole bill is stacked with dankness to go large to.
October 15 @ Vogue Theatre
This show is already sold out, so you can’t go unless Ticketmaster hires you as a scalper, but I implore those going to show up early enough to see TOKiMONSTA. She’s opening, and she’s one of the most incredible artists in electronic music today, all over the place yet always where she needs to be.
October 25 @ Commodore Ballroom
This branch of the Odd Future tree formed in 2011, but it reached full strength with its 2018 album Hive Mind. The Internet is now sentient. It will destroy us all.Clubland
