If you’re an avid reader of my blog you know that I love to hype up local art/projects. The team behind Heavy Meta is no stranger to my love letters. This month, the 7th in the series of parties for the fire breathing dragon takes over the iconic Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto.
The Facebook info for the event alone gets me all ready to deck myself in furs, and chains.
“Hidden among the ashes of a conflagration, there are always a few embers that continue to burn. Sometimes, those embers are all you need to re-ignite a powerful inferno.
Join us as we re-enter the Metaverse on one of the darkest nights of the year, and celebrate with friends new and old the adventure that 2019 has been.
BLOSSOM (Night Bass Records – Phoenix, AZ) 🌸
Blossom is a fierce desert force to be reckoned with. Featured on Ghastly’s episode of Diplo and Friends, and supported by tastemakers Dr. Fresch, AC Slater, Sonny Fodera and more; Blossom earned her stripes from the jump. Not to mention her support roles for Slushii, Destructo and Steve Aoki, among others. Plus, an expert collaboration with reigning G-House champ, BIJOU. The Phoenix-residing Blossom’s bass-forward house style will set the ceiling of the Phoenix on fire.
SMALLTOWN DJs (Calgary, AB) 🏔
The Smalltown sound is fun bass-heavy house music, combining the spirit of Canada’s outdoor electronic music festivals such as Shambhala & Bass Coast, with the sound they cultivated at the legendary Hifi Club in Calgary (which they own and operate). The boys have released music most recently on various labels including Fool’s Gold, Sweat It Out!, Mad Decent, Main Course, and more.

Our last four events have completely defied our expectations for attendance, including selling out the last three indoor venues, and that is thanks to you. Come join us in the Metaverse at our biggest venue yet. “
I spoke with Jackie Spade, one of the event’s providers of sound about what to expect:
“Prepping for metaverse, excited to play some funky banging sh*t“
