1. It’s Free Before 11pm
Typically, we charge in or around $20 for our globally-admired guests (still a very reasonable cost all things considered) but with our three in-house resident DJs in the club, we try to reduce the cost to you to zero. Got friends who have never been to one of the nation’s greatest weekly parties? (Why not?) Invite them.
2. The Sound Remains the Same
Of course, the Baltimoroder soundsystem will still be there. No one knows the acoustic nooks and crannies of the Middlesex Lounge like Baltimoroder. Literally. He’s had 14 years and an estimated 3,570 hours to make it so. Come to just sit and soak in the sound. You won’t be alone.
Recently, the CBC News has reported on findings that young people (aged 21-29) have a hard time finding and keeping a social network. Whether it’s the result of jobs or growing up online or otherwise, that is what our nightclub is all about: Making and keeping connections, which, in some cases, lead to matrimony. From our baller bouncers, to our dedicated bar staff to the volunteers every week, our people are what makes … it. New.
Plus like the sign says:
“Dying Songs” focuses on melancholic electronic music but isn’t limited to that. Sometimes it gets dark, sometimes I try to mix techno awkwardly, sometimes i get nostalgic… I like stuff that’s dreamy, ghostly, pretty and sad. I’ll try out new productions of my own, as well. I’m keeping it pretty open and we’ll see how it evolves.”

1. It’s free of charge before 11pm
Typically, when we bring in one or another world-renowned artists, costs can approach $20 (still relatively low!), but tonight is a great example of a time to invite your friends, your family, or, well, anyone to listen to the future sounds Baltimoroder and Coralcola can provide.
2. The sound system will be primed.
If you’ve not been to Make It New in a while, original resident, (and original Mmmmaven instructor) and audio engineer Baltimoroder has funneled his 13 years of experience at Middlesex Lounge and put it into the sounds system. Our advice? Stand at the back in the middle for the best audio experience.
3. The music will be fantastic
There’s a reason why Mikey and Erik have played Make It New for so long? Listen:
