World-famous Techno personality Seth Troxler’s debut performance in Toronto as he joined us at Box of Kittens and played, what felt like, a neverending DJ set of stripped down Detroit and Berlin inspired stompers. And for those that know, the gong show that follows Seth around at gigs is as legendary as the man himself. It was a super fun night.
Fresh three room west end location + two custom sound systems + Seth Troxler + Komoto Live + our local heroes = incredible party with tons of boom, boom, bleep, bloop all night long.
