Posted:A night of psy-trance, jungle and chill music.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------
Double Agents Psy-Clone, bathory, MTO, and Agent Moskalyk present:

R351570R - Recruitment Drive: NOVEMBER 30, 2002
10PM-5AM, $10 at the door, 19+, ROAR, 651 Queen St. West - Reverb

R351570R, AfterGlow Productions, SMERK
Ektoplazm,
www.DarkHarmony.com,
Spundar, and PlatikWrap

For over a year now, the agents of the Toronto Psychedelic Underground
movement known as Resistor have gathered on the last Saturday of most
months
to revel in blacklight and outer-worldly decor to the best tech-trance,
psychedelic and goa that the globe has to offer. The time is upon us
again
to congregate at the big purple building at the corner of Bathurst and
Queen
we've come to know and love, and to this time bring out others amongst
us
that may be worthy or in need of our cause to participate in our
futuristic
tribal ritual.

Main Stage - Goa/Psy/Tech-Trance with a special guest joining Psy-Clone
for
the introductory chill set.
Psy-Clone (Double-Agents Records, Volume Lounge)
Satori (Digital Love, Activate)
Basilisk (Ektoplazm Records)
Leon (Israel)
Phink (DeepSeaFish, DarkHarmony.com)

AfterGlow Productions Chill Room brought to you by Plastik Wrap

AZAKITE ( "jungle at 33" ) - Toronto - Afterglow
Psy-Clone (PsyTribe and Dub) - Volume Lounge, Double-Agents Records
Miss Blue (DownTempo, Trip Hop) - Volume Lounge, Double-Agents Records,
ETC

? SMERK Welkum 2 da Jungle Room... lineup to be announced

Taken from an email of Davy's...
Hi Everyone!

For those who're interested, this will be one of the *last times that I
am
selling my merchandise* at a Resistor party. What I have remaining
I'll be
selling to a shop I've talked to on Queen St. where they're charging
10$
more than what I'm asking on similar items.

As usual, there will be a Pre-Party Poi session, where we take over the
dancefloor until 11pm, if anyone wants to practice with music under
blacklight, this is the perfect chance to get your groove on without
hitting
people!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
not sure if I'll be able to make it tonight, but i'll be there in spirit and i sent a little, itty bitty present for ya.
I was hoping you'd make U of T poi... oh well. i keep meaning to tell you too that I may have a poi set from thailand for you, but there are a bunch of "if"s. If my package arrives. I may have put a pair of poi in it, or i may have left it or lost it in a hotel room. So, don't get your hopes up, but there's a small chance... Ok, I'm gonna shut up now. I just wanted to wish you the bestest birthday ever. Big hug, love ya, Linda

Posted:hey guys, it's dave here of Promise. remember we did the outdoor cherry beach parties all summer? I wanted to mention this party, i think it will appeal to you. There is tonnes of room and ceiling height to play around in the space, and all other aspects of the night have been worked on really hard.

There will be a Capoeira group coming in to do a demonstration early on in the night. Capoeira is a brazilian martial art/dance that's really interesting to watch. Really physical and movement oriented. I went to a couple of classes and I thought I sucked at it, but I really liked watching the people who didn't. I think you will too. And as you can imagine, if there's room enough for them to play, there's certainly enough room for you to as well. We'd love you to be a part of our party.

So here's the details. If you need to know anything, email me at mdave@sympatico.ca

cheers, dave.


friday march 21- promise 3 year warehouse party at The Prop House

You are invited to our 3rd year anniversary.

The event is being held in a big warehouse where they store movie props. There are three rooms - two fully active studio-type rooms with soundsystems, and a big open area in between filled with couches, movie props, film loops, a bar and performances.

So you can dance your heart out in either the house/techno room or the drum and bass room, or you can wander around, chill out and explore in the big lounge area. The place itself reminds us of Detroit and it's powerful warehouse parties - everyone who visits this space likes it a lot.

We feel so good about the lineup as well - a rare dj set by Abacus, a surprise return visit of KF of the dukes, a live tech-house p.a. that makes you want to dance, and our first full drum and bass room and a lot more.

See you there on the first day of spring.

fountain room - deep house n techno
sans soleil - live p.a. (transmat records)
peace harvest
abacus
lee osborne
KF of the Dukes

art gallery - drum and bass
jah reverend
jonah k
freedom
dms

9:30pm, at the Prop House
55 St Lawrence St, near King and Parliament

live film loops and installations by Blankfoto
group performance by Muiraquita Capoeira

9:30 screening of The Rebel Zone (documentary about Queen St. W from 1975-1985). Directed by Lorraine Segato from the Parachute Club.

Advance tics $10 from Vice, Metropolis, Shanti Baba, and Kops
At the door $10 before 12, $15 after
