HOUSE INSURANCE :: Are YOU protected?
a new monthly series celebrating the house beats!

A very serious night of house flavours from 4 very serious artists who quite seriously are ready to have you seriously consider getting HOUSE INSURANCE. Did you leave the curling iron on after dolling up? Or perhaps left the dryer going now that your best shirt is wrinkle free? Is the bathtub overflowing cuz you were in a hurry to get to the dance floor? Or did you forget to turn down the heat after deciding you needed to warm up for a night on the town? Maybe there's a tripping hazard at the front door because all your best shoes are piled high after you tried them all on?

If your dancing needs are a constant danger to yourself and others,
you need HOUSE INSURANCE. Come get yours tonight.

LYSSA :: Sunset Labs | Victoria
Alissa is passionate about art, cooking, clothing & costume design, music & dancing. As “Neon Sally,” she spent many sleepless nights dancing all over the interior of BC & under the stars at the Shambhala Music Festival to her favorite DJs. Alissa’s first appearance as DJ “Lyssa” took place in 2005. Having spent 11 years in Mexico, and being fortunate enough to be exposed to Latin culture, she has a strong desire to explore her roots in her musical selections. Depending on what mood we catch her in, hot summer afternoons call for deep sexy Chicago beats and bouncy latin-infused house, and on colder nights, expect anything from dirty deep organic tribal tech to quirky & fun latin tech house. She made Victoria her home in spring 2007. She has had the privilege of performing at summer festivals like Victoria Electronic Music Festival, Entheos Gathering, Uprising Media Festival and Solaris Music Festival. She has been added to Sunset Labs roster, and performs at some of the city’s coolest rooms & clubs, like Sunset Room, Hush, & Base Lounge.

The show soon went to commercial airwaves on extreme 107.3 where it hosted the likes of John Digweed, Timo Maas, Moby, Hybrid, Paul Van Dyk and Tiesto.
