You guys like music, right? So do we! And now that our winter show has grown to two days and multiple venues, we have the delight to present you with a full roster of musical delights for this coming weekend. In fact, the Winter 2012 DJ Line-up is a who's who or City of Craft DJs past. Check 'em out...

On Saturday from 11:00am - 6:00pm Pierre Bois (a.k.a. TheVinylDen) will be spinning hot wax from the 1950's to 2000's in the new space at 1093 Queen West. Want to know what is so extra cool about TheVinylDen? The project specializes in bringing great DJ services to grass-roots and not-for-profit events. We dig that groove. You can check out all of Pierre's upcoming gigs through his facebook page.

The DJ from our spring event (and former vendor, juror, installation coordinator, designer, installation artist...), Tara Bursey (a.k.a. DJ Clean Teen) will be dropping some vintage jams at 1093 Queen West on Sunday from 11:00am - 5:00pm. Feel like having a pop-up dance party? Nobody is stopping you. You can also check Clean Teen out at her Strange Notes, her monthly psych/folk/rock night at the Embassy in Kensington Market.


And finally, our perennial music delivery service, Mark Andrada, will be spinning two days worth of purely digital tunage in the Great Hall Theatre (1087 Queen West). Mark also leads the charge when it comes to live tweeting for City of Craft. If you are nice, you can even tweet song requests to him. No guarantees, but sometimes it works. You can usually catch Mark around town running tech for myriad comedy shows and serving as primary technical and sound improvisor at the Comedy Bar's catch23 IMPROV on Friday nights.
