It’s about that time of year again – Caribana 2009..! 1,000,000+ visitors coming to Toronto from all over the world, a lot of parties, the largest street festival in North America, and a convergence of colours and cultures… What does this mean for me? Yet another sleepless week ahead.. Vacation is around the corner though! Here is where you can find me throughout the week for Caribana 2009!
Thursday – July 30 – Rich Kidd Listening Party @ Octopus Lounge [College St. @ Palmerston - 9pm]
One of Canada’s most talented artists [see: producer extraordinaire, rapper, singer, creative genius], gets Intimate & Interactive tonight, premiering new music from his upcoming release, and showcasing never heard before joints. Media & Industry listening event – do not miss this.. That’s all I really have to say. We about to ‘get em Rich!
Thursday – July 30 – Body English w/ special guest Montreal’s #1 – DJ Payce
Right after Octopus Lounge, I’ll be heading back West to my Thursday Night Residency at Body English [Dixie & Eglinton Rd, Mississauga]
Ladies are free all night, it should be packed..
Friday – July 31 – ‘Plush Fridays’ at Lobby w/ Special Guests Chris Bosh [Toronto Raptors], DJ P Plus & More
This is one of my new Friday Night residencies.. I am here about 2 weeks out of a month. It is a very nice and upscale supper club in the heart of Toronto’s Yorkville district [Bay & Bloor St]. Jay-Z celebrated his bachelor party here, and it caters to an older and more sophisticated crowd. This Friday we have guests Wayne Warner & Chris Bosh throwing an event alongside our regular Friday Night. Guest DJ, P-Plus will be in the building as well. Very Limited Capacity.
Saturday – August 1 – Caribana Parade 2009 – Roc-A-Wear Float ++

After a long day at the parade (I’ll be on the Rocawear Float), I’ll be holding down my Saturday Night residency inside The Drink at Guvernment alongside DJ Tilt & Sir Lancelot.
Sunday – August 2 – 9th Annual BET/Hot 97 Party hosted by Ron Brownz & Serani
Way too many details to list for this one.. Basically 6000+ people, sold out 9 years in a row. The biggest Sunday Night Party each year.. I’ll be on the 23+ Skybar Rooftop Patio which Serani will be hosting – tickets are almost sold out I believe you can get some still – get in touch if you need any.
Monday – August 3 – 3rd Annual ‘Change Clothes’ BBQ & Patio Party at MINK Nightclub
More of a social gathering/chill out event and BBQ after all the clubs. Details below.
