Concert Review: Welcome to the Free 6LACK Tour

Hundreds of fans filed into Corona Theatre, on Wednesday November 15, to welcome Sabrina Claudio for her first Montreal visit and to welcome back 6LACK since his last appearance at Osheaga this summer.

Half-Cuban, half-Puerto Rican, Miami native Sabrina Claudio was the opening act for the night. Only 21 years old and Sabrina Claudio’s lyrics are wise beyond her years. Even though she’s never been in love, she sings about it a lot. In an interview with Ebro Darden of Beats 1, Sabrina Claudio admitted that she’s a great storyteller. Most of her songs are based on situations that her friends and family have experienced and shared with her.

Concert Review: Flying Lotus @ MTELUS, Nov. 9, 2017

When Flying Lotus took the stage at MTELUS Thursday night, he brought the crowd into his own world. The LA-native producer, rapper and filmmaker has given birth to a wave of copycats, but his undeniable sound has never been replicated. Those unfamiliar with his music have trouble categorizing Lotus’s sound, and fans find it impossible. He is often labeled as experimental electronic, fusion jazz, psychedelic, and a wave of other genres, but there is no one label that truly pegs him down.


Bobby Lashley on Main Event Radio

On the latest episode of Main Event Radio (Wednesdays at 2pm on CJLO 1690am), we looked back at a great week of Impact Wrestling tapings in Ottawa, Canada including the very special Main Event Radio night. Bobby Lashley stepped into the main event to issue a challenge to Brock Lesnar! oVe and Sami Callihan dropped by for a wild and crazy interview, which you can watch on YouTube, HERE. And we previewed WWE’s Survivor Series featuring Team Raw vs Team Smackdown and AJ Styles vs Brock Lesnar.
