Feb 26th - Colouraving!

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

In 2005, Nocturnal Commissions came together for the first time to throw an event called “Tag! You’re It!” featuring tag sets all night and lots of opportunity to draw on each other, and on various things. Despite the obvious potential for disaster that comes from putting writing instruments into the hands of a hundred ravers, the event came together and showed all the signs of the ridiculous adventure that NC events would become.

Now, entering our sixth year of bringing Happy Hardcore to Toronto’s ravers, NC is ready to carry on this marker-ific tradition with a tight-knit birthday event for us and for you! On February 26th, join us for…


We’ll have crayons, we’ll have paper, we’ll have music, we’ll have beer – all you need is your creativity!

No rave would be complete without slammin’ rave music, and as always at NC, we’re bringing you some of the best, including:

Entity [UK]Hardcore Underground, CLSM, Nu Energy
Jimni Cricket [USA]NuBreed, Marbel, Housewrecking
Kix [USA]Nocturnal Commissions, Just 4 U
DJ TempestRound Table Records, CasualInsertion.org
DAVEoftheRAVENocturnal Commissions, Nurave.com
FlyboyNocturnal Commissions, Embedded, Daydream Productions
Dynamic [USA]Nocturnal Commissions, Embedded, Roc’N’Roll Promotions
Dark StarSubCulture Ent.

In true NC tradition, the event will be ridiculous, chaotic, and of course – hardcore! As always, you can expect:

- Artwork for YOU to colour on!
- Fresh fruit and candy giveaways throughout the night to keep your energy up!
- Free CD giveaways from the NC crew!
- TRIP, Happy Rave, and Raygun Designs concession booths for all your raving needs!
- World class decor from our own Dream Builders!
- A special Colouring Contest with prizes – colour our flyers (available, with crayons, from Shanti Baba or the NC crew, or downloadable from www.NocturnalCommissions.com) and bring them to our contest station for submission!
- And most of all, that one-of-a-kind, super-colourific, brighter-than-ever, please-don’t-write-on-my-face Nocturnal Commissions vibe that YOU bring with you to each and every one of our events!

The venue is The Lounge, located at 1669 Bayview Ave (just a short bus ride from Yonge and Eglinton subway station, located near 24 hour bus routes).


If you had a reduced code for “Last Bop” but were unable to enter: We have reserved enough tickets for this event to ensure that every single person who had a reduced code for Last Bop but was NOT able to enter due to the police capacity concerns, and left their name with us, WILL be able to purchase a ticket. As promised, you will be able to purchase tickets for this event at half off (that’s just 10 dollars) and you will have first dibs. Please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with your full name and your reservation code from Last Bop to exercise this option. You must send us this email by February 1st! After that date we will no longer be holding the tickets, and will release them back to general purchase; you will still be able to claim your 10$ ticket up until we sell out, but once we sell out that’s the end of it.

For all others: Tickets are currently available at Shanti Baba (546 Queen West) and the Happy Rave booth for $20.

Coming from out of town? Send your ticket money via paypal to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it   Paypal tickets are also limited, so please email us first to ensure that we have some remaining.

On February 1st, any tickets which were reserved for Last Bop attendees that have NOT been claimed will be released to the general public and put on sale at the aforementioned ticket locations. And that will be it – this is a limited attendance birthday event, and we are going to keep it to a manageable size so that we can party as hard as you guys for this one. :D

This event is 16+, with a brand new licensed 19+ area which will need to be broken in and tamed by the masters.

PLUR, ROAR, and 6YEARSONTHERUN in full effect!
