Top 3 Must See: Carlo Lio, The Junkies, Mat Zo


This weekend: Toronto loans Carlo Lio to Peopl and The Junkies to Stereo for the night, and commercial house prodigy Mat Zo takes over New City Gas.

Hope you all have had plenty of time to rest and recover from what was an epic Bal en Blanc last Sunday because there are some great DJs heading our way over the next few days. Fans of techno, house, and commercial house are especially in for a treat and we have to say we’re impressed by the quantity and quality of homegrown Canadian talent playing Montreal this weekend. Honourable mentions go out to Circus Afterhours where the first two of ten DJ content winners, Johnny Messina and Andrei B, will be making their residency debut this Friday night. As always, be sure to buy your tickets in advance to avoid the line-ups and higher prices at the door!

Anyone who calls themselves a fan of techno and house knows and loves Carlo Lio. The Toronto native has absolutely blown up over the past couple of years gaining massive support from the likes of Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber, and Carl Cox. Not only is he one of the hottest names right now in the scene, but he is also a fan favourite in Montreal, playing Stereo Nightclub multiple times a year. Unofficially considered the pre-party for The Junkies at Stereo that same night, Peopl is the place to be Friday night. Be sure to check out ‘Carlo Lio – For The Love’ and ‘Sebastian Radlmeier – Is It Me Or Is It You (Carlo Lio Remix)’ to get into the mood and buy your ticket now!

A surprise special guest will be joining them at Stereo this Friday. We’re going to go out on a limb and bet that Carl Lio, who is playing Peopl earlier that night, is that guest. How awesome would that be? $15 tickets are still available online so be sure to grab yours today!
