Aurora Illumination Series is definitely an experience you don’t want to miss. The Phoenix was packed this Thursday — and what a hot and sweaty night it was! Casper Skulls & Teenanger opened up for Death From Above. Unfortunately, we missed Casper Skulls, but we’re sure it was an amazing performance!
This show was FREE! Guests had to enter for a chance to win tickets. Upon entering there was a booth set up to have a 5-second video taken with an Aurora Borealis effect. And you could also have your Aura photographed! These photos were shown on a large screen to the side of the stage throughout the night.
Everyone was given wristbands that lit up in sync with the stage lights — pretty awesome.
DFA was joined by a special guest drummer — Eliza from Toronto band, The Beaches — during their performance of “Romantic Rights”.
Aurora Cannabis is a community-minded, Canadian owned and operated company. “Music + Culture + Cannabis”. Looking forward to the next event put on by #AuroraIllumination
Special thanks to Nikki Dindo for inviting Canadian Beats to be apart of this illuminating experience!

Hi! My name is Melissa, I am a portrait and live music photographer from Toronto. Originally from Malton, Mississauga. I recently decided to combine my love of going to shows and photography – and I love it! It really gives me the opportunity to meet so many great people, and I’ve made some awesome friends along the way. I enjoy discovering new music and photographing the local bands – who doesn’t want a photo of themselves looking like a rock star? I first started going to shows when I was 16, and I saw My Chemical Romance about 7 times before they broke up. My favourite band of all time is Billy Talent. You can usually find me at most hard rock shows, or at ComiCon and FanExpo. I’m a lover of all things sci-fi, fantasy, and Halloween! And also cats, I can talk forever about cats.
