tofino concert - ruby jean

august 13, 2010Ruby Jean

Friday, August 13, 2010
Tofino Legion
Tickets $15 | Doors 9pm

Dance-y to a thoroughly sweaty and satisfying extent, Ruby Jean is the thing that Gloria Estefan was warning you about when she sang the "rhythm is gonna get you," and the Maritimes' high-energy answer to the dance-rock movement that seems to be sweeping the nation. Pulsating, nasty, punky, groovy — Ruby Jean is all of these things and more, a confident, smirking monster of a good time that seems destined to take the country by storm. Ruby Jean shows are ground-poundingly ecstatic. Ruby Jean harvest sounds akin to Tiga, Daft Punk, MSTRKRFT and 80s-era Madonna. A motley assortment of Halifax indie-rock ne’er-do-wells, Ruby Jean have cobbled together a formula for
organic dance party success.

tofino concert - skratch bastid

august 24, 2010Skratch Bastid

Tuesday, August 24, 2010
Tofino Legion
Tickets $10 | Doors 9:00pm

Born in Halifax, raised on Planet Rock, Skratch Bastid has been a hip hop junkie since before he became a teen. Quickly realizing the role of the rapper wasn't his forte, he applied his obsessive musical interest to DJing, which moved naturally from cassette mixtapes in his basement to performing on stage with groups and competing in DJ battles before finding his niche playing parties, clubs and festivals. An addicted record collector inspired by many styles of music, Skratch moves quickly between genres and smoothly between tempos, while keeping things quintessentially funky. Yes, quintessentially. Technically apt, but soulfully grounded. His Get Up! mix was heralded as one of last year's best Mix CDs by TurntableLab, spinning hip-hop, funk, disco and rock into a quilt of awesome. Satisfaction guaranteed.
