REST IN PEACE GUVERNMENT NIGHTCLUB - GONE BUT NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN
Paying a much deserved tribute to a legendary place, that closed its' doors last night for good.
The Guvernment Nightclub was truly one of my very first loves in the Toronto club scene, and I for one will miss it dearly!
There have been many incredible artists that have come through their doors over the years. If you were a somebody in the music industry - you performed there, without question! There isn't a DJ, Musician or Singer around that didn't want to play at the Guvernment.
Living in Toronto all my life, there have been MANY night-life venues that have come and gone but NONE of them could hold a candle to this place - and probably never will.
This past weekend will go down in the books, as many incredible talents came together to pay their last respects to the infamous building we've all known and loved for years. The hashtag #GuvFinale literally flooded social media, in homage to one of the greatest venues in Toronto's history. It truly is the end of an era.
The Finale Weekend consisted of a number of amazing people that made a substantial contribution to this club in its' day. It just wouldn't be a proper send off without the likes of: Armin Van Buuren, Knife Party, Mark Oliver, Fab Strong, Joe Mazone and Canada's own Deadmau5, who closed last night's farewell party with a bang. Giving all the fans in attendance a night they will never soon forget.
To everyone who played a part in making this place what it was (and there truly are too many to mention, but you all know who you are) Thank you!
The memories I made at The Guvernment will last me a lifetime. It is because of YOU that the experience and vibe there was always incredible! And although we are so sad to see this place go, we await another door that shall soon open. Looking very forward to what's to come. We shall see what the infamous "Charles" has in store for the Canadian Club scene next!! After what he's done with this place over the years, you know his next move will be nothing short of genius!
