Bros have really let themselves go

Saturday, February 22 is shaping up to be the best night in 2020 for Brits in Toronto so far because of two main reasons: The Toronto British Expat Meetup Group Pub Quiz is happening AND Britannia: Britpop & Madchester Video Dance Party with Oasis Spotlight!

Start with one and end the night with t’other! Or you can stay in and stick t’kettle on for a luvly cuppa char, chook. Your choice.

Britannia is the ONLY Britpop Video Dance Party in North America. It’s packed with hundreds of Britpop fans getting down to the coolest UK tunes of the past and present.

This coming Saturday, at Remix Lounge in downtown Toronto, the night will feature an Oasis Spotlight = means lots of their videos will be played on the night by this Brit-related bloke, DJ Lazarus.

He took her to a supermarket. Probably Loblaws

It’s Friday afternoon, you recently moved to Toronto from the UK and — having got over the hurdle of gaining Canadian experience — are happily sitting at your office desk, minding your own business, working away.

Just then your boss pops his head in and utters those dreaded words that all Brits fear: “Hey buddy, grab a partner, meet us by the stationery closet … it’s the random office dance party! Yay!!”

So, you look around … but there’s no escape. The corridor seems to stretch off into the distance as you walk along it, reach the throng of co-workers and join in the “fun” as you jerk around like a Thunderbirds puppet to Drake singing about The Six.

Or, you can wait until July 22 for the Britannia Video Dance Party! Join the common people for a special night of Britpop and Madchester video favourites including:

Oasis, The Verve, Suede, Pulp, Blur, Supergrass, The Stone Roses, Inspiral Carpets, Sleeper, Ash, Shed Seven, The Boo Radleys, Wonderstuff, Ride, The Smiths, The Charlatans, Happy Mondays, Carter USM, Jesus Jones, Echobelly, Manic Street Preachers, Travis, Stereolab, Ocean Colour Scene, EMF, House Of Love, Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, Kula Shaker, The Jam, Soup Dragons, The Auteurs, Joy Division, Ian Brown, Dodgy, Mansun, Black Grape, Morrissey, The La’s, The Farm, Republica, Menswear, Cast, Space, Longpigs, Echo and the Bunnnymen, Lush, Primal Scream, James, Saint Etienne, Gene, Jesus And Mary Chain, Lightning Seeds, Catatonia, Spiritualized, Adorable, Paul Weller, Franz Ferdinand, Super Furry Animals, Simple Minds, Flowered Up, The Bluetones, The Fall, New Order, The Mock Turtles, Radiohead, and more.

If that sounds like something you’re mad for, then here’s the deets.

I went to the last one and can honestly say, it is a really brilliant night.
