The days of deep hibernation are over, but we’re still full on shlumpadinkas! Yes, Oprah taught us in the ways of the shlumpadinka a long time ago and now we’re embracing the art of letting go. Come dance with us in your floppiest shlumpy tent! Fall out of bed & onto the dance floor.
To fill the room with super chillaxed vibes we’re very exited to have Macy Rodman from NYC with us. The Lazy Girl video is on heavy rotation in our beds. Macy recently released the debut EP HELP.
Join us to see Macy’s first performance in Canada and get HELP!
Take this shlumpadinka quiz!
If your answer is maybe to any question you may be a shlumpadinka:
* Is your birthstone melatonin?
* Is your favourite designer bed, bored & beyond?
* Is your favourite food deep fried anything?
* Are your nighties by Ralph LauRen, the father of Kylo Ren?
* Are you guilty of the nonstop frump?
* Are you in a really anal, nonstop relationship with a chocolate bar?
* Do your new friends ask you: are you on email?
* Are you pretty sure it’s the Chinese year of the sloth?
* Is your favourite InterNetflix show Watch Again?
* Are greasy food stains on your oversized clothing just a funky pattern to you?
* Have you ever used a plate of spaghetti as your comfy cushion?
* Is your goal step count a single digit?

About AVAN LAVA
AVAN LAVA have staked their claim as one of New York’s most vibrant pop acts—a kind of natural bridge between late night club culture and kaleidoscopic pop theatricality. In doing so, the trio of Ian Pai (producer/drummer), Le Chev (producer/keyboard/guitar) and TC Milan (vocals) have earned a fervent fanbase and managed to bring their raucous live show to points all over the globe.
The band’s current EP — Make It Real — (released in March via Atlas Chair Records) serves as a euphoric pop blueprint for their increasingly dynamic live show: a communal party experience characterized by nonstop dancing, the occasional blast of confetti, and a profound sense of joy.
Spring is just around the corner of a sexy rock bottom! Bust out your most gargoylian statue look and spend the night prancing around in the Hotnuts Sculpture Garden.
We’re very happy and excited to have our dear friend V Δ N E S S Δ taking over the stage. The front woman of the band LIONESS is going solo now & will be performing songs of her soon to be released debut EP.
