Canada’s very own party-rocking turntable champion AKA Skratch Bastid is back at the Common
Having rocked the bar many times, Skratch Bastid is now ready to raise it. The Bastid has become one of Canada’s most in-demand DJs and respected producers, but don’t think it happened overnight. From his humble beginnings a decade ago as a teenager in Halifax- pumping out mixtapes from his bedroom and earning a loyal following already back then- he slowly spread his skills first at DJ competitions like DMC, ITF, and Scribble Jam and now around Canada and the world as a widely recognized go-to guy for party-rocking. The illest redhead on turntables has since gone viral.

This Friday in collaboration with Beaus brewery, we are beyond excited to host one Canada’s most iconic hip hop artists, K-OS, who will be rolling through and gracing us with a DJ set. Kevin Brereton better known by his stage name K-OS is a Canadian alternative rapper, singer and record producer. k-os' music incorporates a wide variety of music genres, including rap, funk, rock, and reggae. The lyrics frequently focus on promoting a "positive message" while at times expressing criticism of mainstream hip hop culture's obsession with money, fame and glorification of violence. A musician as well as a producer, k-os has written and produced nearly every part of all four of his albums. k-os usually performs with a live band, something that is uncommon in the hip hop genre. He sometimes plays guitar and keyboard both during live performances and in the studio.
We will also have a very limited run of some of Beau’s tasty beers on tap. Make sure to give one (or 2) a try.
The Common will be closed from January 1-8 for our annual winter break. We will be back to regular hours starting January 9th. Make sure to stay tuned for news on upcoming events at both the Common & 9910.
