This past Saturday Audio Blood Co. held their 5th Annual Rooftop Rager, partnering up with Radiary.  Radiary  is a new social platform that allows users to share creations, photos and videos, and can be downloaded as an app from the iTunes store. The event was in celebration of AB’s recent rebrand, as well as their expansion with a new New York City office.

This year’s event featured some wicked musical acts such as  Hein Cooper, Zoo Legacy, Midday Swim, WHIMM, Basmyn Jurke (of Weaves) and a surprise performance by Moon King. It was my first time catching Hein Cooper and I really enjoyed his set. I would happily watch him perform again. Zoo Legacy delivered a pretty sweet cover of Major Lazer and DJ Snake’s “Lean On”, and Midday Swim was the perfect soundtrack to a hot, summer afternoon – energetic and fun.

Held at one of Toronto’s newest spaces, the La Vie Complex, it was my first time there and I was pretty impressed with their rooftop patio. The atmosphere was great, the staff was friendly and, overall everyone seemed to be having a great time.

The event included a free, self serve ice cream stand thanks to Kawartha Dairy Ice Cream Shop, as well as complimentary drinks courtesy of Beau’s All Natural Brewing and Jameson Irish Whiskey.

AB co. also partnered up with Apathy is Boring, Reunion Island Coffee and The Duke Brothers, all of which I encourage you to check out.
