Concert Review: GZA at The Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto

Fresh off of the Wu-Tang Clan’s extravagant celebration for their 25th anniversary, including a massive world tour that had two stops in Toronto, the documentary series Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics And Men, and season one of the live-action TV drama Wu-Tang: An American Saga, it’s time we start celebrating the 25th anniversaries of those classic…

The Top 10 Concerts I Attended in 2019

2019 was a really busy year for me. The day job got more demanding, a lot of friends and family got married, and I did most of my traveling for reasons other than attending world-renowned music festivals. I still got out there and reviewed as many concerts as I possibly could though, covering a good…

Concert Review: Jidenna at The Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto

Currently midway through his 85 To Africa Tour, Jidenna returned to Toronto to perform for just his second time in the city. He is coming off of releasing his sophomore album earlier this year, also titled 85 To Africa, and after performing a short, mid-card set at the 2017 Manifesto Festival, he’d return to do his own headlining…

Concert Review: Joey Bada$$ at The Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto

After pulling a last-minute no-show to an already postponed concert last summer, Toronto still has not lost any love for Joey Bada$$. It’s been less than a year since he bailed on the Toronto stop for the joint All-AmeriKKKan Bada$$ / Everybody’s Tour with Logic, and Joey has already embarked on his new AmeriKKKana Tour, returning to Toronto…

The Top 10 Concerts I Attended in 2017

This has been the most epic, action-packed year of concert-going in my entire life so far. 2017 saw me completely blow my previous personal record of most concerts attended in a year out of the water, with over thirty shows attended this year. I have to thank all the artists, promoters and media companies who…

Concert Review: Tech N9ne – The Strange Reign Tour in Toronto

Tech N9ne continues to prove he’s one of the hardest working Hip-Hop artists there is, somehow keeping up with his seemingly never ending tour schedule while releasing three new albums in a span of less than twelve months.  He released The Storm in December of 2016, Dominion this past April, and is gearing up to release his…

Concert Review: Talib Kweli at The Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto

Legendary Brooklyn MC Talib Kweli makes his return to Toronto, almost exactly two years since his last show here.  Having released some all-time classics in the late 90’s and early 2000’s on Rawkus Records, he has adapted nicely to the shifting music industry and has remained relevant as an independent artist.  Ever since founding his…

The Top 10 Concerts I Attended in 2015

Our second full calendar year being active was a fun one!  We’ve gained a lot of recognition in Toronto’s local Hip-Hop scene, made great connections, and most importantly covered a lot of concerts this year (one more than last year!).  I want to thank all the promoters and local artists who made it easier for me…

Concert Review: Tech N9ne – The Special Effects Tour in Toronto, ON

Within a week of being exactly one year since his last show in Toronto, Tech N9ne has returned on yet another tour.  This would be my third consecutive year catching him live, as Tech N9ne has consistently released new music to allow him to constantly alter his set lists every time he tours.  Tech seems…
