Sunday night at the Hoxton was a special night for anyone in attendance. Thundercat, along with his band consisting of a keyboardist and a drummer, took the stage and completely took over the vibe of the small club. Thundercat recently visited Toronto on tour with Flying Lotus when they brought the You’re Dead! tour to Danforth Music Hall. But this time was much different, a solo Thundercat performance proved to be much more intimate. Giving fans exactly what they wanted, Thundercat played various cuts from his debut project Apocalypse and his most recent release The Beyond / Where The Giants Roam. He also performed some of his contributions from Flying Lotus’ You’re Dead and Kendrick Lamar‘s To Pimp A Butterfly. After graciously thanking the crowd for supporting his craft, Thundercat descended from the stage leaving everyone wanting more.

Cannibal Ox brought their “Blade of the Ronin” Tour to Tattoo Queen West on September 17th in Toronto. The New York-based hip hop group were delayed crossing the Canadian border so doors were pushed back an hour. When Cannibal Ox finally arrived, they got straight to business. Their manager (and longtime collaborator) Double A.B. opened up with quick set before bringing out Vast Aire and Vordul Mega of Cannibal Ox. The duo performed tracks from their first album The Cold Vein (entirely produced by El-P of Company Flow and Run the Jewels) before transitioning into tracks from their new album Blade of the Ronin. Vast and Vordul brought a lot of energy to Tattoo, effortlessly flowing over the futuristic beats they are best known for.
