Tonight’s edition of regular after-hours event OCTOV should be one of the most exciting of the year. Headlining will be one of Paris’s most sought-after deep techno DJ/producers Anetha. Opening for Anetha is local DJ Lucide. and Berlin-based Héctor Oaks. OCTOV has put together the biggest scenography in their history for this party, which will feature 54 metres of LEDs. Entrepôts Dominion (3968 St-Ambroise), 11 p.m.—6 a.m., $35. Fun fact: if you can’t get enough, Montreal promoters Exposé Noir are bussing Anetha over to Ottawa (of all places) in the wee hours where she will play alongside a whole stable of DJs for a 24-hour warehouse party. Who needs sleep anyway?
