T.A./U.P. BBQ '08

The Off the Hook crew attended the annual T.A./U.P. BBQ this past weekend, in Angrignon Park. Lord Chaos counted 150 people at the peak. There were multiple BBQs, a generator, a sound system with turntables and mixer, thanks to Moog Audio, plus Budda's Serato. Northern Lights and Penzo Gritty Stem were there, a good time was had by all.

Summer's coming to a close

Concordia Student Union put on a free show, outside their main building on Mackay. It started with D-Shade and Narcicyst backed up by Budda Blaze and a girl who's name escapes me. After that was Velvet Trench Vibes and Talib Kweli. I had to go back to work after D-Shade played and didn't make it back in time for Talib. Here's some shots from the first part of the show:
