Duchess Says, Dead Obies, The Posterz, Wasiu @ Adelaide Hall 5/7/2016 #CMW2016

My final show at Canadian Music Week was M For Montreal’s showcase at Adelaide Hall.

The majority of the night featured rap crews Wasiu, The Posterz and another round of Dead Obies. There’s a collaboration and camaraderie that I admired and doesn’t exist too much in Toronto’s underground scene of lone wolf rappers.

The highlight of the series was the weird cult band Duchess Says that I first saw a few months ago at Wavelength 16. I knew I was on for another crazy ride as Annie-Claude Deschênes lived off the energy that she was given. There was crowd circles, dance lines and of course some crowd surfing. This is one band you definitely have to catch up a glimpse of this 2016.
