Toronto is one of the lucky North American cities with the Bi-Monthly Stones Throw parties therefore the tour's stop here was expected.
The venue, Revival was 80% to capacity by midnight. M Hawthorne was on the decks to open the show playing a variety of Dilla neck snappers to classic Motown joints from the early 60's. He's more of a selector than a DJ however there was some cohesion to his overall set. DAM FUNK came on shortly after to took us to the Funkmosphere, a TIGHT set full of classic boogie and Dame's signature production. His announcement of the tracks along with the labels was the icing on the cake.
James Pants!!!!!!!! WOW, came on and took OVER, he just owned the night. The show was part Captain Beefheart, The Cars plus evangelical variety show. Let's just say James and co stole the show. PBW came and cleaned things up with his neat, video DJ set, nothing better that watching old Hip Hop videos together with clips of Mr.T after school specials..... Where does Wolf find this stuff.
All in all, not my greatest live experience but VERY high marks on entertainment value.
