You'll know him from behind the bar, but this time he'll be on the party side of things along with his homeboy and birthday twin Zachary "Emmanuel Zachariah Zachipom" Hyde, and our dude Jamie "Old Like Me" Hoskins will also be gettin loose!

In other BOSS TAKEOVER news, Jonny and Corey will be DJing the triumphant return to Vancouver of THE AGGROLITES. If you ain't know them...seriously...check them out. They'll blow your head off. Event here:

RED STRIPE IS FOUR DOLLARS

As those who have been before can attest, this night is all about the best of the early years of Jamaican music - Sweet rocksteady, the heavy monster sound of early reggae, even bits of classic early-60s ska here and there, and strictly on the original format, the 45...because eff everything else. Once again, we've got some monster new secret jams to be unveiled that we know you're gonna be so into.

RED STRIPE IS FOUR DOLLARS

We'll be bringing the original JA hitsound, the jams of a young nation finding its feet after gaining independence as well as the anthems of her native sons and daughters seeking fame and fortune in the dancehalls of their former colonists and spreading the riddim that would help to define a subculture.

RED STRIPE IS FOUR DOLLARS

You already know soul is where it's at...and this is Jamaican Soul. You may not think you like this sound, but trust us...you do.

The decks will be manned by Jonny “Boss Brains" Grayston (East Van Soul Club, Biltmore booze slinger) and Vancouver's most enthusiastic new selecter, YOUNG ROYAL (aka Corey Poluk of The Valuables, The Ballantynes, and theFUTURISTS.ca)

Your East Van Soul Club proudly brings you this legitimately legit monthly night! This is...
