Mindbender Canadian Music Week Toronto ON, March 5 to 8

Bumped out of his slot by an eager KRS-One, Mindbender found himself in the daunting position of following up the T'Cha. With house lights on and a big gap between sets, a frantic Mindbender took to the stage of the sparsely populated Opera House, busting out a few new songs from his two recently released albums. Mindbender's tension was palpable as he paced barefoot like a caged animal in his beige, zebra-patterned jean outfit, sunglasses and a plastic crown, which he proceeded to smash in rage. Despite an apathetic crowd, Mindbender put everything into this theatrically enjoyable performance.
