As the snow falls and yet another year draws to a close, we here at NC HQ put our heads together to reminisce about 2009 and make plans for 2010. And by make plans, we obviously mean get drunk (does it ever mean anything else?). So a few days later, after we recovered (and briefly got drunk again - twice), we met back up and thought "hey, if we're in a race against time, time is totally kicking our butts." So, logically, we decided to do the only thing we could do - we would finish the time machine we've been working on for the last few years, go back in time, and kick it old school, in the age of muscle cars, neon diners, sock hops and drive-in movies - the jump-jivingest, scuba-divingest decade of them all - the 1950s!! Then we thought about it a little harder, and decided that if we're going to build a time machine anyway (which, as it turns out, is harder than you'd think), we can just wait for our FUTURE selves to build it, then have them send the finished machine back for us to use!

Unfortunately, as it turns out, our future selves are apparently REALLY pissed at us for ruining their livers (we think they're just making excuses for being really lazy), so if we're going to achieve our goal, we're going to need YOUR help to turn back the clock!

So we're putting the call out now - calling ALL ravers! On Thursday, December 31st, help us turn the clock forward AND backward at the same time (take that, Large Hadron Collider)!! Get ready to:

Every rave is the culmination of a massive amount of energy, passion, and hard work. A truly amazing rave requires great music, good planning, and a fair bit of luck to come off right. But in every great rave, the most important factor is YOU, the raver. And that's why, every year, Nocturnal Commissions comes together with Embedded Entertainment to give you, the best ravers on the planet, a chance to really take charge.

So get ready ravers! You know what time it is! Toronto's favourite rave, the world's ONLY fully interactive rave experience, is back in action with YOU at the controls! It's time once again for TOTAL REQUEST RAVE!!!!

http://www.nocturnalcommissions.com/images/stories/flyers/TRR4front.jpg

This FOURTH Total Request Rave brings you a top notch lineup like you've come to expect from us - international legends, local heroes, and the most promising up and comers, including:

BILLY DANIEL BUNTER [UK] - Can You Feel It, Honey Pot Records, UK Hard - 2 sets!

World-class legend Billy Bunter, fresh off the release of "The Sound Of Hardcore 2009," touches down in Toronto for the first time since 1995! He's been making tunes that have defined the face of hardcore for longer than some of you have been alive - with that kind of discography, we couldn't give him just one set!

QUACK QUACK [USA] - Wandal Pro, PLURLife, myspace.com/quackquack111

Salt Lake City's master of cheese debuts in Toronto with a fresh and sing-alongy twist on a classic eurodance sound!

Canada's favourite Hard House hero returns to his rightful place on the NC/Embedded stage for another dancefloor stomping powerbomb of a set!

You know you love raving - so share the love! Bring a friend for their first rave at TRR4, and they will receive a newly-recorded cd from Dynamic - and so will you!

This event is for ravers 16 and older; please bring your ID no matter how old you are to ensure access. There is a 19+ licensed area for Flyboy, Fuzzboy, Opel, and Dynamic, and there is a second 19+ area for when that one runs out of beer and Jager. If there's any left over, we may share. :P

This event returns us to the Reverb and Holy Joe's - 651 Queen Street West, Toronto, Canada.

Admission is just 20$ for Early Bird tickets (available at Shanti Baba - 546 Queen Street West, Toronto - and the Happy Rave booth starting October 3rd until October 12th). Advanced tickets are $25 dollars, and admission at the door will be $30. Coming from out of town? Email us your full name and city of origin to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to secure your tickets at the advanced price and ensure entry in the event of a sell out crowd!

At the first Total Request Rave, we tried something that nobody had tried before. Truth be told, we were a little nervous that it wouldn't work out. But with top-notch ravers like Toronto has, we needn't have worried - and now, four years later, there's simply nothing like it. Total Request Rave is BACK - don't miss your chance to be a part of rave history!


PLUR, ROAR, and WOULDN'TITBEFUNNYIFWEPLAYEDTHEREALM in full effect!



Happy rave, and see everyone there! :D
