Lifetime Collective + HIFI Club present Ben Tour

After 3 long years of communication and countless failed attempts
(were all a bit busy)
Ben Tour fiiiiiiiinally made it out for his exhibition at the HIFI
Club Last night. We couldn't be happier.

In the past few years Ben has been featured in Juxtapoz magazine,
had a solo exhibition at the infamous BLK/MRKT Gallery and the
Fifty/24 Gallery in San Francisco. Alot of (well deserved) headway for
any Canadian.

'PURE TRASH' is a collection of paintings Ben was commissioned
to develop for the Club. Lifetime Collective was onboard pulling
together a Lifetime/Smalltown Romeo Mix to help promote the show.
Much thanks to Trevor from Lifetime who spent most of the day on
a ladder hanging the work.

Great people all round last night even a surprise apperance by male model Greg Keech. Shouts out to DJ U Tern and Teddy Celebration for playing a great set to a sold out room.
Lot's Air Guitar and Dancing followed by an an impromptu
3am skate session. Tremendous Night.
Much Thanks to everyone came out.

Woah - we just got back from an intense tour with our mates Jokers Of The Scene and Kenny Mac of Red Bull fame. Red Bull 3Style is like a party-rocking fun-djing competition with a national finals happening next weekend in Toronto. We were asked to come along and judge as well as play after the competitors. David Lang documented the trip with his photograph machine. He is a professional:

Quebec City kicked it off - Canada's most gothic vibe. Dagobert - the club which hosted the party - looks like a chateau francais.

No - Daft Punk did not play - it's the house lighting at Dagobert

Smalltown played though, and so did the Jokers.

Then we ate so much poutine that I almost didn't wake up the next day. But I did.

Speaking of Jokers - we spent a lot of time in vans and airports with the JOTS. They are top mates

Next it was off to Halifax, where our homie Double A was entered in the contest. He killed it.

Cosmo also killed it and ended up winning, with Double A coming in second.

Then it was time to dance

After which we ate the grossest Donair I have ever seen. It was like sweet sandpaper topped in pepperoni and milk. I know.

Montreal was the next city in the path of destruction.

A-Rock ended up winning, and played the best set we saw all weekend.

We had a ton of fun there too.

Big Ups to Kenny Mac, Jokers of the Scene, Hatchmatik, Team Canada, Skratch Bastid, Double A, A-Rock, Red Bull, DL, and everybody else we hung out with on the weekend.

Wow, great acquisition by les Flames. Jokinen's a proven scorer and leader and he's big and strong like an ox. Makes the Flames' trio of centermen - Jokinen, Langkow, Conroy - probably the best in the league. Plus he's under contract through next season and he'll be a good Finn-mate for Kiprusoff. We'll miss you Lombardi.. not.
