David Guetta – at The Commodore (December 30)

Tickets go on sale on TIcketmaster on Wednesday November 25th for DJ David Guetta’s show at the Commodore on December 30th. I’m going to guess (emphasis: guess) that tickets will almost be $100 considering David’s Guetta new DJ Mag status as #3 DJ, the cost of renting out the Commodore, and Ticketmaster charges…..

DJ Tiesto – in-store performance & autograph signing (Nov. 14)

DJ Tiesto, the #2 DJ in the world (but arguably the best known) is having an in-store performance and autograph session at HMV Robson before his concert on Saturday November 14 from 5pm to 7pm. Wristband policy in effect on a first come first served basis, and will be handed out at 11:00am that morning. Autographs are not guaranteed due to time restrictions.

I don’t know if this is such a good idea to jam hundreds and hundreds of Tiesto fans into an HMV store. If PNE (where Tiesto is playing later that night) can fit 10,000+ concert goers who paid $100+ for their ticket, a free concert at an in-store venue is going to cause massive chaos at HMV…….This reminds me of when Deadmau5 played a free concert at the Santa Monica Apple Store and caused such an overwhelming response that the police had to shut down his show.

Modern Mix Monday – The Redroom

Looking for something to do? Every Monday morning, we present to you “Modern Mix Monday”, a brief but link-filled one-liner review of our past weekend loaded with suggestions to inspire you for your next!

Do you like electronic music? Trance, progressive house, and electro house – Believe on Saturday nights at Redroom has it all! The electronic scene in Vancouver is relatively small, but Believe at The Redroom (398 Richards Street) is filled with a crowd who enjoy and appreciate this music genre. The venue has a great layout with its open dance floor and a second backroom, but overall, it’s a little bit grungy and in need of some major upgrades and renovations. The beloved back corridor, with its black walls and neon space scene makes it a popular picture taking location. I remember when I first went to Redroom, I felt like I was in a maze with back corridors and passages and steps leading up, down and around the DJ booth. (There’s also a third secret room hidden in the wall, but I won’t get into that right now…) It keeps things interesting. I also like how there are separate entrances and exits to avoid crowding. Cover is $15 but there are a ton of “black cards” and VIP passes floating around so if you can get your hands on a couple of those, it’ll save you a ton of cash. Nonetheless, when party-goers congregate at a club solely for the music, nothing else matters. If you’re designated driver for the night, there is a parking lot just around the corner (on West Cordova and Richards) where you can park for $2 for four hours at night!!
