Electro Swing Club is a global network, operating sold-out events in London, Paris, Turin, Vancouver and beyond. It is coming to Toronto as the one and only monthly event dedicated to the genre. The launch event is this Friday, April 13, 2012 at the Gladstone Hotel on Queen West in Toronto.
The electro swing sound is a fusion of old and new, combining traditional swing with electronic music such as house, electro, dubstep, drum & bass and hip hop. I would consider it a solid branch of the victrolacore music tree.
This event will feature DJs, live acts, burlesque performers, visuals and décor and, together with a vintage dress code, will evoke the sounds, spirit and fashion of the 1920s – 40s, giving them a modern edge.
