Scratch, Skratch, Scratch Bring Their Beats to the Toronto Jazz Festival
Beat lovers of Toronto, get ready for one of the highlights of this year's Jazz Festival: Scratch, Skratch, Scratch, a collaboration between beatboxing wizard Scratch (formerly of the Roots), Juno winner Sktratch Bastid and Toronto's DJ Starting from Scratch. The three previously came together for a handful of high-profile shows including performances at the Vancouver Olympics and the Junos in St. John's, and now group are together once again, with a performance scheduled for tomorrow night (June 24) at the Mod Club Theatre.

According to a press release, the show will be a mixture of rehearsed beatmaking and improvisation, which promises to be "half live musical experience, half bonafied party."

Tickets will set you back $17.50 plus service charges, and are available from Ticketmaster and UnionEvents.com.

For a taste of what's in store, check out the embedded video below. It's got some impressive turntablism, and Scratch's beatboxing is genuinely insane. You can see more on Skratch Bastid's YouTube channel.
