Hey and hugs from us to all of you, our Global Fam... Another year has come to an end. We have had such a blast in 2019, in fact, this year was one of the best years ever for Team Cozmic. We've learned so much, achieved so much and met so many amazing people... and we still find time to be constantly inspired by what we see around us.Thank you for supporting us and being a part of the Cozmic journey. We just couldn't do this without you.
Some of the highlights from 2019
In 2019 Cozmic Cat spread the love in Toronto at venues like Revival, Ripley's Aquarium, the Royal Ontario Museum, The Round, University of Toronto Hart House, TD Main Stage at Yonge and Dundas Square (above), The OLG Stage (Pride Festival), the epic Cherry Bomb Pride @ Mod Club, Queer Nation @ The Piston, Drake One Fifty, Drake Commissary, Craft Brewery, Supernova Ballroom, AToi and the swanky Bisha Hotel. Out of town, Cozmic Cat represented out in Wellington at The Drake Devonshire Inn, in London Ontario @ the London Music Hall, in Hamilton @ Sous Bas , and many more clubs, venues, events and parties. We thank everyone involved in the logistics, the marketing and promo, all the performers, photographers, blogs, crew, videographers, staff and of course all the friendly and fun dancefloor fillers and supporters at each of these amazing parties! Thank you!
We have been so thrilled to finally be consistantly producing quality, sweat shop free T shirts with the sick Cozmic Cat logo since last year... Currently on our 5th round, we are proud to be able to spread the Cozmic Love in T shirt form! We also dropped USB keys with the FREEDOM album on them, Cozmic Cat Pop Socket phone grips, Super smooth foam grip pens, several pins and some download cards. Check them out in our SHOP and thank you to everyone who bought something and /or tagged theirs on Social Media. Thanks for spreading the love!
New DJ Residencies!
As always, Cozmic Cat is one hard working DJ with wide ranging sounds and good vibes that led to 2 new residencies : Disco dreamy Friday vibes at Supernova Ballroom ( 330 Bay St) and laid back loungey Sundays at Drake Devonshire Inn in Wellington Ont. (25 Wharf St) all summer long. Alongside her weekly Thursday Funk filled Drake One Fifty (150 York) and her 3rd Saturday dancefloor throwdown CHERRY BOMB at Round Venue (152 Augusta) , Cozmic has added a new 5th Saturday at The Piston (967 Bloor) with Dj John Caffery at Queer Nation. See you on the dancefloor!
ONE EPIC PARTY
FREEDOM ALBUM RELEASE, top floor of the Royal Ontario Museum.
There was one party in 2019 that stood out from the rest and went the extra mile in terms of making us all feel the CozmicLove. The FREEDOM album release party, which was graciously made possible by events programmer and super nice guy CHRIS KENNEDY at the Royal Ontario Museum took place on Friday Oct 4th... and it was truly a night to remember. Featuring cuts from the album, a merch table to die for, dance and singing/ rapping performances from Dara Hidalgo, Jay Light and C. Paige (NYC) , the event was incredible vibes and more than we ever dreamed of in terms of an album release. Thank you all to those who came out, danced, bought merch, and also to those who sent their vibes and support from across the miles for the album release!
