Chronixx and his Riddim Up Band performed for a sold out crowd inside Rebel Nightclub on Friday April 28th. The concert also featured Canada’s own Blessed and Lindo P., with early juggling by Yardcore (1st time in Toronto for Max Glazer), backed by the Love People Family. This was Chronixx’s third Toronto appearance, and the non-traditional early-start time caught some people off guard who ended up being either late for or completely missed the performance.
I’ve seen Chronixx live in Toronto twice, this was his third-best show to date in the T-Dot. On this night – Chronixx appeared tired, non-enthusiastic, in a gaze and in a maze throughout the majority of his performance. This is not to say that he was a disappointment to the thousands of fans in attendance – the majority of them would say it was a fulfilling concert experience, but I’m just calling it how I saw it. No fault of Chronixx – he’s been going city to city non-stop doing his thing for months. The April 28th Toronto show was amongst the last on his entire Chronology Tour which to date had spanned 41 shows over 56 days in Canada and the US.
Overall, a decent night inside Rebel. Big up Chronixx, he’s a rising star with a very bright future, and this is not the last we will see of him here in the T-Dot. With this show ending by about 1:30 am, I thought I would get to go home at a decent time on a Friday night. But after the concert, we checked out a small after party inside Timeless Nightclub (on College St.) featuring Yardcore (Chronixx’s DJ) spinning a very short set and backing up female sing-jay Kelisssa (Spellbound Records) who had performed earlier that night on stage with Chronixx. The performance was short but sweet and the modest crowd in attendance appreciated the effort.
