The party you've all been waiting for is finally coming!
Back in September, 2011, we threw our first Motown vs. Stax party and Stax won without question. We decided to do it again in 2012 and, this time, the title of "best Soul music label" went to Motown! The only thing left for us to do now is have ONE FINAL SHOWDOWN in a WINNER TAKES ALL battle to break the tie. We'll be playing nothing but original Motown and Stax 7" 45 rpm records all night mixed LOUD on The Piston's amazing sound system by resident Shindig! selectors General Eclectic, Splattermonkey and Double K (Parkdale Funk).
Who will the winner be? Motown or Stax? The decision is entirely up to you! All you have to do is come out to The Piston, 937 Bloor Street West in Toronto on Friday August 30th and dance to the best of the Motown and Stax catalogues of sweet Soul music and cheer for your favourite! The winner will be chosen by "round of applause" or "how much noise" you can possibly make at 2 a.m. and we'll be playing nothing but the winning label for the rest of the party.
Entrance to this party is free before 10;30 p.m. and only $5.00 after!
See you there!
