As the fall 2010 term winds down a close and we get ready to start exams, the CSC will be having one more final event. No, it's not an invited talk or a code party; this time, it's THE CSC GOES CLUBBING!
On Friday, December 10th, our very own CSC member Elyot Grant will be behind the decks at Waterloo's Revolution Nightclub, playing electronic dance music as a special guest DJ inside The Purple Room. In the past, Elyot has given many theory talks for the CSC on topics like approximation hardness and incompressibility, but this Friday, he'll be letting the music do all the talking.
The event poster is here:
There is NO COVER BEFORE 11pm (in other words, it's FREE!!!)
Come join us as we march out to the purple room in full force to support Elyot and dance our asses off to his selection of chiptastic beats. Here's a word from Elyot himself:
"Hi everyone! If you want an idea of what I might play, there are some DJ mixes of mine at: http://soundcloud.com/elyot and some additional music I made over at: http://www.student.cs.uwaterloo.ca/~egrant/
As a special treat for the CSC, I will try to drop some chippy tracks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b172UA1smO0&t=3m20s http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F21aifX0lZY&t=2m06s http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v10GkrLbgKE&t=3m17s

You must be 19+ to attend and must bring your ID (health card doesn't count; driver's license, passport, or LCBO card are all fine.) Cover is free before 11pm and $5 afterwards. My set time is 11:30pm - 1:00am. The party usually lasts until about 2:45am.
There is a guestlist available, which enables you to bypass the line anytime before 12am (so you get in more quickly). If you arrive before 10:45, there is usually not too big of a line. But if you arrive later than that, you may have to wait outside for a while, so you might want to consider guestlist if you think you'll be coming any later than that. Then, instead of getting in line to get in, you just talk to the guy with the clipboard who finds your name, checks it off, and lets you in right away.
If you wish to be guestlisted, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and number of guests before Friday at 6pm.
Rev is a short walk from the #12 and #7 bus routes and has free parking. I don't think there's a dress code other than "no athletic wear" (essentially, no jerseys, baseball caps and gangsta stuff). You don't have to dress up; most people (including me) will be wearing normal clothes. The crowd is friendly, there is room to dance, there are lasers, and there are big (but not deafening) speakers.
Cheers! Hope to see you Friday.
