  • Concerts: N*E*R*D & Common @ Kool Haus (Toronto)

    On Monday night, the Young, Fresh & New team was out in effect at the N*E*R*D & Common concert @ Kool Haus in Toronto. This was the second time the team had seen N*E*R*D in concert this year. (Previously seen at the Glow in the Dark Tour back in May) With a little of technical difficulties at the beginning before the show started, Pharrell did apologize for the inconvenice but that didn’t stop the show. N*E*R*D started the show with “Anti Matter” which instantly brought a funky hip hop/rock vibe that got everyone moving from side to side, jumping around and acting a fool. One thing that everyone quicky noticed was Chad Hugo was a no show. No word on where he was and why he wasn’t on stage. Featured with live band, N*E*R*D took the stage for almost an hour performing their classic hits “Spazz”, “Lapdance”, “She Wants To Move” and of course “Everyone N.O.S.E”. Considering Toronto is the Screwface Capital of the World, many artists have experience the lack of involvement from the crowd and N*E*R*D didn’t experience that on Monday. Once again, I was not disappointed with the performance and N*E*R*D has an energy that is not deniable.

    During the stage setup for Common, Agile took over the turntables playing many hip hop classics to continue to mood of Hip Hop. Common took the stage around 10:50 where he performed until Midnight. Again, with the use of a live band, Common perform many hits and some new songs from his upcoming album. Performing songs like “I Used to Love H.E.R.”, “The Light”, “Universal Mind Control”, “The People” and many others made me realize how much I really do appreciate Hip Hop. The crowd didn’t seem so energetic but appreciated Common’s presence. I hate to admit but there were times where I did feel bored throughout the performance but if it wasn’t for the mix of hip hop songs he used while performing I am not sure how I would of been feeling that night. Common ended the night by freestyling about Toronto for atleast five minutes. The crowd went while as Common rap about the artists from Toronto. It’s great to know that some people do appreciate our music scene and of course appreciate the fans!!!

    Unfortunately I didn’t get good photo but I got recorded a lot of videos. I didn’t load them all but peep “Rock Star”, “Everyone N.O.S.E. and “Universal Mind Control” below. For those who didn’t get a chance to make it out – you truly did miss an amazing show. Hip Hope is ALIVE!!! Enjoy.
