5 Years of Fortune Sound Club
FORTUNE 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH *SURPRISE GUEST*
Everyone who’s anyone has been to Fortune Sound Club. Notables such as Jay-Z, Gorillaz, OFF!, Little Dragon, EPMD, Eve, Wu-Tang Clan, Tony Hawk, and more, have all been to the venue either as guests or performers. Since the venue’s inception in 2009, it has garnered major industry awards including Best Dance Club awards (Georgia Straight; West Ender) as well as Nightclub of the Year awards (Vancouver Nightlife Awards; Urban Culture Conference Awards).
The brainchild of venerable tastemakers Garret Louie and Rob Rizk, Fortune is not your run of the mill venue. Welcoming acts and performers from all genres, the organizers and staff of Fortune have created an entity that is equal parts nightclub, venue, project space, art gallery and community hub.
Fortune will be celebrating their five-year anniversary with a bang on Thursday, January 22nd. To get in for free RSVP here http://bit.ly/1qlIHtn and arrive before 11:00 p.m.
As with past Fortune anniversary parties, there will be a special performance from a surprise guest. According to Fortune, this year’s guest has been nominated for a Grammy four times, occasionally appears on reality TV and is poised to release an album soon. It’s really anyone’s guess.
We caught up with Garret Louie who shared his Top 5 favourite shows in Fortune’s last 5 years:
I just couldn’t believe I was watching Queen B live and in our room.
She came hard and killed it.
STWO, POMO and TOMMY KRUISE
That night was just good vibes and music.
Grandmaster Flash at the KNOWSHOW closing party.
I got to host all my friends from the apparel industry and Grandmaster Flash slayed it. Perfect selection for the perfect crowd.
I was just happy to have had her play the room before she blew up.
