DJ Dopey at Discography Halloween Session at Baltimore House on Sunday, October 27!

October 15th, 2013

DISCOGRAPHY is Hamilton’s first-ever evolving and constantly changing DJ event featuring a rotating stable of established local DJs that have each either worked at or have been directly influenced by Dr. Disc. The DJs are hand-picked and take DJing back to its roots by playing ONLY vinyl records! No laptops allowed!

Each session takes place every second Sunday at Baltimore House, 43 King William St, and the next DISCOGRAPHY session is a special Halloween edition on Sunday, October 27. The special, headlining DJ for the night is DJ DOPEY, who was crowned DMC World Champion in 2003, which is basically like winning gold in the Olympics of DJing! (To see DJ DOPEY‘s incredible turntablist showcase that won him the title of “World’s Best DJ”, click HERE.)

Also appearing that night is the talented and vinyl-friendly “DJ-about-town” DONNA LOVEJOY who has opened for the likes of Maylee Todd, Javelin, and New Hands. She has also rocked the crowd at The Brain, This Ain’t Hollywood and the Art Gallery of Hamilton’s World Film Festival.

DISCOGRAPHY is specifically for people who love music, versus people that just like “songs,” and it is held on an off-night to allow the best, most popular DJs who play regularly on weekend nights to perform – and play what they want – to a knowledgeable and appreciative audience. You’ll hear anything from Jay-Z to Joy Division; Skrillex to The Supremes.

Due to the limited capacity at Baltimore House it is recommended that you come early to avoid disappointment. (The Thanksgiving Long Weekend DISCOGRAPHY session reached capacity at 11:30 pm!) Doors open at 10:00 pm.
