It’s really hard not to be fascinated by Lorde. Whether it’s her look, her voice, or even her ‘dance moves’, the power that this seventeen year old can hold over your rivals artists who have been at this for decades. She may have only been at this thing we call touring for the past year and a half or so, but during her third night in New York City, her second consecutive night at the United Palace Theatre, Lorde proved that she’s a seasoned vet…and so much more.
Katy Perry only arrived on the scene six years ago (more on that later), but during her stop in Toronto for her Prismatic World Tour, Perry proved why she’s one of today’s pop greats with a solid two hour concert that was a sensory overload….typical fashion for Katy Perry.
They’re the most powerful couple in music, and despite rumors of trouble in paradise, Beyonce and Jay-Z put on an (authentic) united front of the Rogers Centre and delivered an action-packed, movie themed night during their Toronto stop on the On The Run Tour.
We’re creeping into summer, slowly but surely, which means Fefe Dobson will be releasing her third album, ‘Firebird’! In an effort to promote the LP and her current single, ‘In Better Hands’, Fefe stopped by the Much studio in Toronto to play a little acoustic set.
Last night, Canadian Music Week began and to kick off a week full of free music and exclusive showcases in Toronto, the baddest bitch from Sri Lanka stopped by Tattoo Rock Parlour for an intimate gig.
The OG of Female Pop/Rock is gearing up to release her latest studio album, ‘Firebird’, later this spring/summer…but in the meantime, it’s time to spread the word that Fefe Dobson is back with a new sound and better than ever with Firebird Tour.
Yesterday, Sky Ferreira released her new EP ‘Night Time, My Time B-Sides Part 1’ with an in-store at Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s new record shop, Rough Trade NYC. Fresh off her small fall tour, Sky wound up playing her last show of 2013 in the attached venue in the store.
Over the weekend, Selena Gomez brought the Canadian leg of her ‘Stars Dance’ Tour to a close and (thankfully) I had to opportunity to see pop’s most budding star charge through a catalogue of hits and new songs along with a few covers that will shock most.
This afternoon, Toronto hosted the Live Green Fest, a celebration of all things Green, at Yonge & Dundas Square. At the main stage, a roster of talented performers were on the line up to help celebrate including Juno winner, Anjulie!
Last night, Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z kicked off their summer co-headlining tour in Toronto at the Rogers Centre. Now, I’ve seen Justin separately and I’ve been to co-headlining tours before, but nothing could have prepared me for last night’s show.
Last night, Ke$ha and Pitbull brought their summer tour to Toronto at The Molson Amphitheatre and RAW had the opportunity to attend. With much anticipation and excitement, the night started on a disappointing note, but ended in a very fun, VERY unexpected way.
If there’s one artist that I’m totally stoked for in 2013 it’s Sky Ferreira.
