XEROX is a new monthly night of electro, cold wave, new romantic, synthpop, minimal elektronik, et al. in Toronto. The brain-child musical super-genius Jason Amm a.k.a. Solvent, the night features Solvent and Will Munroe behind the turntables, and is the successor to Munroe's infamous Peroxide electro/disco/wave parties, which took place at Kensington's Club 56 from 2002-2004.

Expect everything from favorites to rarities, new to old, over a generous range of genres, but don't expect any of it to get lost in the mix. In addition to a vocal disdain for the all-too-often narrowness of "DJ culture", Amm is a fellow hopeless romantic for when "DJs mixed everything, and people danced to everything."

The next edition of XEROX is December 1st at The Beaver: 1192 Queen Street West, recently named best lounge by NOW Magazine.
