Harthfest, AndroidTO Afterparty And Rappers With Raymi
Post by Robert Campbell on Oct 27, 2011
The anything-goes, colorful world of HARTH really came to life at 99 Sudbury St in Toronto on Weds 26 October 2011. Harthfest 2011 was a large colourful event attraction filled with enthusiastic phone app developers fresh from AndroidTO.
Raymi the Minx told me about harthfest in a heartfelt mass email. She wrote,
Hey idiots this is how you come to harthfest for FREE tomorrow – get your tickets for your flight on harth air, i’ll be checking you in at the door. Forward this to friends of yours you want to bring with. 8PM 99 Sudbury See ya! http://harthfest.com
Harthfest was the AndroidTO After Party
2 ROOMS – 2 EXPERIENCES, both of them kinda chilly
COLORFUL EXHIBITS were arranged about the room behind a boxing ring,
The StickerYou Make-Your-Own-Sticker Photo Booth
Roller Derby champions THE ROLLERGETTES in-person
The art of Jimmy Chiale
The Eightshit social media profile pic service and much, much more.
Andy Milonakis is no stranger to new media; he broke into show business through a series of Internet shorts. His rap was passionate, but to me it wasn’t very interesting because the words were incomprehensible in that venue.
The stage, which was a boxing ring, was bouncing so much it threatened to break, and the promise of that imminent disaster kept me watching for another 20 minutes, but then I had to leave for the quieter and slightly warmer climate of the second room.
Michael Nus was there and I see today he wrote a comprehensive account, AndroidTO and Harthfest
It was indeed a Harthfest and I hope they do it again in a more acoustically suitable venue next year. Here are my pictures of the evening.
