[Photos] Backstage with Rat Boy

March 22nd, 2019 – Rat Boy backstage @ The Danforth Music Hall

He has “scum” tattooed on his knuckles and a song called, Wasteman, that should tell you all you need to know about Jordan Cardy aka Rat Boy. The English musician is somewhere between rap and rock with addicting tunes and a punk rock personality. I caught up with them on their Toronto stop and caught a few backstage pictures of the band. Take a look at Rat Boy behind the scenes.

Just on the cusp of adulthood UK’s Yungblud, Dominic Harrison, has built an army of fans around the world.  The artist has connected to a younger audience by speaking of his own depression and anxiety, which in turn has wracked up millions of plays on Spotify and led to a world tour. Here is a behind the scenes look at Yungblud backstage in Toronto.

USS, Friday evening, and a select few that get to enjoy it all. What could be better? How about if the band bought you a drink? Well, yeah, all those things happened. Last week, United Synergy Seeker (USS) and 102.1 The Edge took of Mill Street Brewery for an acoustic show. Anna Boyes was there to watch the whole thing go down, check out her photos from the secret event below.

April 22nd, 2017 – Exclaim and Fred Perry host a secret Hollerado show. 

Beer, an alley way and a makeshift stage, can you think of a better way to spend the afternoon? Maybe add in some of Toronto’s best talent and one of Canada’s staple bands, Hollerado. After headlining the Indie’s Wednesday, the band gave Toronto more by headlining a secret show.

Up next, Little Junior brought forth a set full of energy and choreographed guitar gimmicks. They didn’t forget to dedicate every song to the haters.

The band of the hour took the stage at five and played a wildly intimate show. Not bothering with a set list, they played old and new and even took suggestions from the audience. Ending the day full of bubbles, candy and a personal hang with bands, the secret party wasn’t one to miss.
