This rock night, which is usually at Alberta #3, and it is being held at Astronete while its house is under renovation, is a favourite with journos and media types in general, so you can count on the crowd being fairly well aware of what’s hot and what’s not. Be sure to arrive before 11pm if you want to get in for free, but don’t fret if it takes a while to warm up: the dancefloor, featuring mainstream hits and indie songs, only really fills up after midnight
The party is either ‘Rocks On’ or ‘Rocks Off,’ in a bi-weekly sonic rotation. While ‘Rocks On’ keeps things a little more contemporary with the likes of LCD Soundsystem and Nirvana, ‘Rocks Off’ keeps things strictly classic, from Alice Cooper to The Cramps.
