One of Melbourne’s hottest exports, as far as western Canada is concerned, has got to be the SIDESHOW. This highly-tattooed and absolutely crazed ginger of an Aussie has become well-known throughout western Canada and beyond for headbanging his way through high-energy sets of bass music, which he refers to as his “Party Lessons.”

On this night he’ll be joined by recent Van Isle transplant DJ Keyes, a Hush Nightclub resident who has recently been focusing his attentions on culinary endeavours, including the fine AVO Express in Salmo, British Columbia.. Cover is just $5 all night long, with Happy Hour drink specials in effect through ’til 11:30pm!

[ Alkatraz Crew / Melbourne, Australia ]

SIDESHOW is straight out of the back alleys of Melbourne, Australia. Serving up the finest blend of beats, he brings one helluva crazy party each and every time he hits the stage. With unmeasurable amounts of energy, SIDESHOW bounces from one side of the stage to the other before swingin from the rafters, the whole while delivering the freshest ghetto funk / glitch hop / breaks / dubstep / drum & bass with clever samples and quirky live remixes. A SIDESHOW set is something that can’t be described, it has to be experienced!

With eclectic sets and contagious energy SIDESHOW has captured audiences across Canada, America, South America, Mexico and of course his motherland Australia since he started traveling to perform in 2010. He has shared the stage with the likes of Stickybuds, Slynk, Timothy Wisdom, AC Slater, Dodge and Fuski, Torqux and Twist and Schism – just to name a few.

Currently living in Calgary, SIDESHOW established the Alkatraz crew over the past 2 years, bringing together talented DJs and producers from all sorts of musical backgrounds and genres to throw crazy parties across Alberta. With artists as local as Calgary and as far away as Australia, Alkatraz have proven themselves to be a crew stacked with talented disc jockeys time and time again.
