On a cloudy October night The Smokers Club tour rolled through to Toronto’s Kool Haus complex to perform in front of a packed and shall I say “under the influence” crowd. With clouds of smoke filling the air from performers on stage and fans in the crowd sparking what we’ll call “medicinal medicine” at every turn, the environment was definitely living up to the title of the tour.

It was a frigid homecoming weekend but it didn't stop over a thousand people attending The Weeknd Tent Party in London, Ontario. Featuring acts such as Two Crown King, Richie Blackz, TFHOUSE, The Dirty Mags The Girls Can Hear Us, LP Forsythe, DJ's Everfresh and Doubledown. The Come Up Show is proud to present our coverage of the evening. Special thanks to Danielle Da Silva, London Music Hall and Nick Andrews and make sure to check out the photo gallery of The Weeknd performance.
On a wet and dreary Wednesday night in Toronto, “East Coast Representaz” The Boot Camp Clik touched down at Sound Academy to heat things up and perform as a part of the 11 day Manifesto Festival. Members Buckshot, Sean Price, Tek and Steele of Smif N Wessun and Evil Dee all performed their respective hits and fan favourites from their extensive catalogue to an amped and eager Toronto crowd.
The night started out as most Toronto concerts do with local opening acts performing in front of larger crowds they may not get the chance to perform in front of. The first performance was from Toronto emcee Richie Sosa. A strong performance with the MC giving a lot of energy and enthusiasm, unfortunately it was marred by technical difficulties; microphone cut outs and low sound. All the same he was a trooper and kept things moving, not letting anything hold his performance back.

With a previously cancelled show that was originally scheduled on July 30th 2011 one day before the popular sold out OVO fest by drake, and a month jam packed with more than enough hip hop concerts to choose from in Toronto, many including myself were a little skeptical as to whether kid Cudi, Aka Mr. Rager would be able to deliver to an audience and city that has been spoiled over the last few months with hip hop concerts. Then I realized as I looked out into the adolescent; skinny jeans, hoodie wearing crowd this isn’t your typical “hip hop concert”.
