Renegades - May 8. 1998
Well known event due to the Kenny Ken tape that just about every post-98 era jungle raver in this city has! Held at Kaboom Nightclub where Dose held an event at around the same time. To be honest, as you can see from the flyer Tuff Jam were meant to get a bit of a push and I think a few people stayed away from this event due to that. A good crowd but it certianly was not rammed.
Kenny Ken with Hyper D were the first headliners that night however. Kaboom had a sunken dancefloor and the dj booth was set up very high so you could really only see the heads of the performers. Tuff Jam came on after, I think it did not go over well or at least that was my perception at the time. I had to take care of someone and did not really pay attention. A shame really, Tuff Jam are really good if you like garage house. Try and track down their Essential Mix on Soulseek.
Don't think Dr. No was there that night despite what the flyer says.
Kaboom had a weird shaped chill area which might of been the second room that night.

the sound was insanely loud, and the stage was high up in the rafters at the end of the venue.
Tuff jam came on after and played armand van heldens "Funk Phenomenon" which was huge at the time.
Kenny opened with the now infamous "Man of Steal" and I recall seeing Slip and Slide super happy to hear it played by one of the Heavyweights. good night!

I'm surprised no one has mentioned that all those who missed this event missed one of Stevie Hyper D's final appearances in Toronto (RIP). Hyper D was insane on the night.
