Yee-haww! Saddle up for a special UNICORN THEMED edition of PANTS OFF DANCE OFF - Featuring the queen of Music 4 Unicorns DJ divaDanielle!

After many years in the LA underground scene, Diva started releasing original tracks through InStereo Recordings and charting on Beatport. Her debut track (and now Diva theme song) “GhettoWork” spent 6 months on the Beatport House 100. In 2015 she struck gold with “I Got A Man,” a collaboration with DJ Dan, spending a month in the House Top 10. With a fierce desire to promote women in music alongside an affinity for unicorns, Danielle trail blazed her way through the California music scene with her self-dubbed brand, ‘Music 4 Unicorns,’ a mix of bouncy House, Bass House and Nu Disco. Much like the mythical creature, divaDanielle is one of a kind.

***ᗯᕼ𝗬 ᑭᒪᑌᔕᕼ?***

PLUSH was created to highlight and support people who don’t often get recognized in the music industry and many cis-gendered spaces for being their lovely selves. This includes women-identifed folk, non-binary/genderdiverse peeps, people of colour and the LGBTQ2SIA+ community.

𝗣𝗟𝗨𝗦𝗛 is the newly rebranded series of events created by co-host, Tera Greene. It is the rebirth of the vibes that came from her 3 volume series, Bass Hive - Ladies Night. Bass Hive - Ladies Night Vol 1 was Friday, April 27 and Vol. 2 was on Nov 9, 2018. They were nights of housey-bassy vibes. These events were such a success, round 3 was March 30, 2019 with a housey-bassey-tribal night!

While those events will never happen again under the name, Bass Hive - Ladies Night, nor even Ladies Night, we want to acknowledge all of the roster of DJs who played and supported the cause from day one. We also thank everyone who participated in the events by volunteering, purchasing tickets for friends and just showing up to create a great atmosphere. Thank you.

Back with a fresh new name, and a shift in clarity of focus, PLUSH is all about making sure spaces are created 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘮𝘰𝘷𝘦 𝘶𝘴 𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘸𝘢𝘳𝘥.

𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙣𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙜𝙚𝙩𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙗𝙖𝙘𝙠 𝙩𝙤 𝙗𝙖𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙘𝙨;
No hype, no drama, just good music, good people and good vibes. No one is headlining... we are just coming together for an old' fashioned house gathering. It’s time to shed the negativity of the year and celebrate a rich harvest of pleasure, so that we can all head in to 2020 with love and light.

We invite people of all gender expressions, sexualities and from all walks of life, to come together to empower one another at our events. We welcome you.

𝗤: 𝗪𝗵𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗺𝗲𝗿 𝗻𝗮𝗺𝗲 "𝗟𝗮𝗱𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝗡𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁?"

A: From Vol 3, "The intention behind this event is to bring our community together to support female DJs in the Bass Hive brand. Doesn't mean it's only women-identified only able to come into the space. This is definitely a collective, community, we appreciate our male-identified friends who post for us, support the female djs.

It's a ladies night because we are promoting empowered female-identified DJs. Empowered ladies being featured, plus a nod to a song called "Ladies Night" from back in the day.

Please be respectful of the space you are in. Everyone is welcome. We are in the space together. Be respectful of who is and who isn't a "lady". We all have perceptions of ourselves. This is a safer-space, queer-friendly. Let's be there for the Bass. Bassey-Housey-Tribal night of music."

On October 4, 2019, St.Arnaud (Edmonton, AB) released their debut album, "The Cost of Living", a tribute to a lost friend and the sharp turns we find in young adulthood. Come celebrate the release with a night of live music at The Copper Owl.

At 24 years old, Ian St.Arnaud found himself to be an old hand on the festival performer circuit, a University graduate, an accidental overdose survivor, and at a loss for what to do with himself next. The previous fall his bandmate, friend, and at times antagonist, was hit by a train, thus dissolving his Americana/folk pop trio - North of Here.

Scenic Route to Alaska are once again hitting Canadian highways for a string of intimate and high-impact live dates this fall all in anticipation of a jam-packed 2020.

For two straight years between 2016 and 2018, the heralded Edmonton-based indie pop trio worked tirelessly scaling the summit of the music scene. They dropped two acclaimed LPs Tough Luck and Long Walk Home that weaved memorable melodies and catchy vocals through compelling, musically-rich arrangements and earned a slew of awards and accolades on their backs. Theyve toured relentlessly across North America, Europe, and Australia and subsequently watched their fanbase grow exponentially the world over.

Following some overdue and well-deserved downtime earlier in 2019, the band is now preparing to share their first taste of new music in over 18 months ahead of a handful of highly-anticipated shows between B.C. and Ontario that are sure to satisfy loyal fans and new followers alike.

The Winter Solstice marks the day with the shortest period of daylight and the longest night of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere), all thanks to the tilt of the earth. In many cultures, the day is a day of feasting and celebration, but even if you’re totally agnostic, you can still find a reason to rejoice, because after today, you’ll see gradually shorter nights and longer days, which means you can look forward to the emergence of spring.
