The Rhythm Method Toronto, ON March 11

The Rhythm Method are three girls rapping about drunk moms, crushing on dad and getting pregnant, dropping lines like "My dad threw a ball to me yesterday / But I know mommy's gettin' all the good play." Dressed in gaudy '80s get-ups (pant suits, side pony tails) the Haligonian trio rhymed over beats played through an iPod, adding a haphazard DIY feel of the set. But where such a set-up could have ended in a disastrous technical problems, the set ran smoothly, as band members Snakechains, Handjob and Xteva exchanged choice onstage banter amongst themselves and the packed crowd.
