Mod Club’s Back to School Special (Sat. Aug. 23 @ Jupiter Room)

I hope y’all have a black suit (with skinny tie) and/or a one piece dress (preferably polka dot) ready for this Saturday. A Vespa would add a nice touch too. The Mod Club (MTL) is throwing down a ‘Back to School Special’ to commemorate everyone’s favourite time of year in a mod stylee.

You’re all thinking ‘this is too good to be true!’, and probably ‘I’m so there!’, but there is a catch. In order to enjoy a pumpin’ night of your most cherished Motown, Sixties Beat, Britpop, New Wave, and Art School tracks while rocking it out to 60's cinema classics within the chillin’ confines of St. Laurent’s Jupiter Room, you have to drink as much as possible before midnight. That’s right… apparently your $5 cover empowers you to enjoy all-you-can-drink privileges before the chimes of midnight (after which you will all turn into pumpkins).

Now you’re all thinking ‘I have no clue what Art School is’ and ‘I’m getting wasted before midnight this Saturday!’ But don’t worry: (a) you don’t have to get wasted if you don’t want to (… not cool); and (b) Art School and all the other aforementioned fancy music genre names just means that you won’t hear a single song you don’t like. You’ll have to bite your lip if you want to resist your urges to shake it.

Mod Club’s Saturday nights have moved all over town (i.e. Vinyl, Main Hall) during their 3-year lifespan. But after a few failed compounds, the Mod Club seems to have discovered a matching bond. The Jupiter Room (3874 St-Laurent) is the ideal medium for the fusion of pumpin’ beats and swayin’ bodies. The modernest modernist of them all, Dr. Modern, and his lab of musicologists (including Parklife, TT La Veste and special guest DJ Jordan Dare) ensure a controlled reaction with optimal energy output… and no by-product.

And to further entice you… I’m obviously going to be there skankin’ it rude boy style. As a result of an Olympic miracle, I will actually be there sporting my 5-inch lower abdominal incision wound in spite of all the odds… so you really have no excuse not to come. You might even see the odd Chinatowner, or maybe a Still or a Dear or something. Plus, if you’re like cute or nice or just really lucky, I’ll buy you a drink before 12.
