From 6pm to 10pm
To celebrate this holiday season, le Labo invites you to its studio space for an evening of jovial warmth and cheer. The festivities will begin with artist Marisa Hoicka who has a visceral and surreal piece in store for us, where performance meets new media in creative symphony. “Still life” will not sit still.
The evening will also include a performance by The Vinyl Den, a multifaceted DJ project celebrating the vinyl format from the ‘50s to today – an analog event not to be missed.
And we’re not done yet! Guests will enjoy appetizers with a glass of wine, and even a chance to win one of our fantastic door prizes!

For Pierre Bois, music has always been a lifelong family and personal obsession. From stormy drives with his father while ‘Working On The Highway’, to cleaning the house with his mother while doing ‘The Conga’, to getting dizzy with his brothers while ‘Dancing On The Ceiling’ – these are a small slice of his fondest memories and the inspiration for TheVinylDen: a mix of live dj gigs, Full Audio Throwback Sessions (FATS), thoughts about life and music, and videos on YouTube via thevinylden channel.
