    Convention Centre gets ready to groove

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    DJ Steve Aoki is fine with reality shows on MTV instead of music. He welcomes more American Idol knockoffs.

    As far as he’s concerned, they’re great for his industry because they’re forcing people to seek out good music more than ever. When they find something that wasn’t manufactured by a TV show or record company hype, they flock to it.

    “Now, kids are forced to discover music on their own terms,” says Aoki, who’ll be part of an all-night dance party at the Scotiabank Convention Centre New Year’s Eve. “It created an open lane for all this music to be discovered. I’m happy for all the reality shows on TV.

    “People aren’t lazy – they’re going on YouTube, SoundCloud and Facebook and finding music themselves. That’s the power of dance music – it’s mainly a viral music. You have to discover the music yourself.”

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    It’ll be a loud gathering of techno and electronic music going until nearly dawn. Just don’t call it a rave.

    For two decades, the free televised concert down at Queen Victoria Park has been synonymous with New Year’s Eve in Niagara Falls. But there’s a new party in town this year, and it doesn’t end at midnight. It’ll just be warming up.

    Golden New Year’s Eve 2012 will be an eight-hour, indoor dance party at the Scotiabank Convention Centre Niagara featuring renowned DJs Avicii and Steve Aoki, along with Toronto’s Manzone & Strong and Niagara’s Christina Cruise. The music starts at 8 p.m. and goes until 4 a.m.

    Unlike the typical rave, the event will have tight security, a dress code and admission starting at $75.
