Thursday, May 12 in Toronto, London native and recent Juno award winner, Shad took over Wrongbar for a VIP performance presented by Scion Canada. The Come Up Show was in the house to check out our local boy, and he did not disappoint. The night started with an opening set from indie rockers Miracle Fortress. Not your typical opener for Shad, but they did a solid job warming up the crowd nonetheless. Much respect to the ladies with the free hor d’oeuvres, that kept me well fed until Shad served the main course at 10:30. The first half of the show included "Compromise", "Rose Garden", "Telephone", "Yaa I get it", "Rock to It", and "I Don't Really Like To". The sound quality in Wrong Bar is usually bang on, but perhaps adjusting from Miracle Fortress to Shad was a difficult task, as most tracks were met with reverb. Click below for more.
As we go into a brand new year, I would like to reflect on what The Come Up Show has accomplished in 2010. The great memories created with interviews like Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa, and D-Sisive. Interviews I NEVER expected with Reflection Eternal and the first Summer Jam Canada with Busta Rhymes, Fabolous, Rick Ross and T-Pain was a part of history. The Best of 2010 is for our fans we've gained in 2010 and a great time capsule for our fans who have been supporting since day one. Make sure to watch the video in full as we have included a sneak peek of 2011 with Jay Electronica, Bun-B, Brother Ali, and Pharoahe Monch. Thank you very much for you love and support. Happy New Year and Best Wishes from The Come Up Show Team.
