Music lovers rejoice!

Live Convention ’17 it happening later this month, which is a weekend-long celebration of record collecting and vinyl culture in Toronto.

And in support of the weekend, the Broadview Hotel is hosting two very special music events that you won’t want to miss.

On October 21, Stones Throw recording artist Tuxedo (Mayer Hawthorne + Jake One) will be performing at the hotel and will be DJing their signature blend of 80s boogie funk.

Titled Love Handle, the event is a must-attend for boogie music enthusiasts, and Tuxedo will be playing funk classics all night long.

The duo heads to Toronto after spending the past few months touring the world on the heels of their wildly popular sophomore album, Tuxedo II. Collectively the duo has worked with everyone from Jay Z to Hall and Oates.

To wrap up the weekend, the hotel will partner with Cratery Record Exchange to host a premium record fair specializing in vinyl handpicked for fans of soul, jazz, progressive and more.

Unlike most record sales, Catery Record Exchge features not only local sellers, but dealers from around the world with the sort of stock you can’t typically find in the city.

If that weren’t enough, NYC rap legend Lord Finesse will be auctioning off exclusive pieces from his personal collection live at the show. And finally, show goers can expect an exclusive food menu from the Broadview.

So if you’re into funk music, want to see some incredible talent or want to pick up some new vinyl, clear some space in your calendar for these events.
