    Ayyyyeeee it's not a celebration unless there's a party at the house first, and it's not a house without the family. So we're we're transforming The Drake Hotel into Manifesto's house for the night, and you're all invited.

    Oh ya, and it's free. Here's how it breaks down...
    THE BASEMENT
    You know the basement was always where the band equipment is set up. Down here we're featuring Practice, the legendary night of curated musical improvisation, in a live setting. While connecting, highlighting and bolstering Toronto talent, Practice also gives music fans a chance to witness real-time musical creation. And if you're up to it, jump on stage, grab an instrument and lay it down smooooove.

    THE LIVING ROOM
    We're turning the dining room table into a DJ booth and taking out the couches so there's room to slow dance. And by slow dance we mean fast dance. And by fast dance we mean...well you know what we mean.
    Featuring the bad kids from the neighbourhood:
    KillaxKels (Gxxrls Creative Agency)
    Sammy Rawal (YES YES Y'ALL)
    Dj Revy B (SUPAFRIK)
    +more TBA

    THE PATIO
    When you need a quick breath of fresh air, head upstairs to the patio to catch a quick chat with the crew. We'll keep the mood nice and easy with some future beats, throwback classics and other laid back sounds.
    Featuring:
    Laith (plusMOOD)
    Absvond (Omit Limitation)
    +more TBA
