Politic Live Canadian Music Week Toronto ON, March 5 to 8

Rumoured to be one of the hypest live acts in Edmonton, Politic Live tried their hardest to bring that energy to the nearly empty Annex Wreckroom. The trio’s coaxing of the crowd to participate often produced lacklustre results, but still they joked and kept their optimism up. Throughout it all they created a fun, upbeat vibe with their commercially viable beats and positive lyrics. It would have been nice to see what they could do in front of a bigger audience, but the smaller crowd — still the biggest of the showcase — made it easy for them to network with each person post-performance.
