Should be an epic party; I know for a fact that Danny Fazio was thrown off the Scorpions tour for being too raucous. Think about it; getting thrown off a metal band tour for being too hard to handle.
This party should be a blast!

Trevor Risk is a different man depending on the time of day. If you run into Trevor early in the afternoon, he’ll be working hard on the next issue of Ion Magazine. He’s the music editor there, and a mid-day meeting with him will generally be filled with talk of which bands need new publicists, and which ones need to release a new album to stay current. Dinnertime with Mister Risk will require earplugs as you’ll probably be in a rehearsal space listening to his pop band The Good News. Friends of K-Os, The New Pornographers, and Tegan and Sara, The Good News will bring heavenly verses and choruses down from the clouds for you. Late nights with our hero are spent at the finest nightclubs in Vancouver, as he is the city’s most affluent DJ. Whether it’s his 50s/60s night, or his raging glitz-house evenings, you’ll enjoy yourself and tip a few bottles. Find Vancouver, find Trevor, and you’ve found yourself a pretty fab weekend.
CROOKS & GUNN
Rising from the puddles of Vancouver, Canada are a duo who speak to both
our love of party-anthem-disco-thrash, and our love of visible minorities. Zia
Hirji and Samuel Kintu spin “records” for “clubbers” with their turn “tables”,
all the while giving each other fives and winks with all the precise panache of
a tag team wrestling combo in the late eighties. It’s a joy just to watch them,
but it’s an experience to listen to them.
