TFHouse at Nocturne TOMORROW!

TFHouse, aka one of my most beloved friends, a huge support to me and someone I believe in to no end, has a show tomorrow at Nocturne on Queen West. He’ll be performing his songs from his mixtape he released last summer — On My Way, as well as give you a few sneak peak tracks from his upcoming album — Superior Taste. I’ve heard these songs from when they were just lyrics on Text Edit straight to rough cuts and full production…. MAN, Teddy has just grown exponentially over the last couple of months — as a producer, rapper, and even as my best friend. LOL. After 2 crashed hard drives, a stolen identity, and lots of crazy ish he’s had to jump over in order to get where he is right now, all I can say is, the Man breaks through brick walls. Unstoppable.

Reach tomorrow night!

What’s GOOD in the Hood?

And so Winter  break commences! Classes are over but exams are upon me. Thankfully I’ve only got two and they’re soft tings (or so I think, lol). Plans for the winter holiday? Weelllps… I’m sure not going home to Vancouver for Christmas, sigh, which is okay with me considering I picked up a winter seasonal job and making some mad coin right now is my first priority… To be completely frank, I want take this time to really rejuvenate and get some personal projects done. They’ve been sitting on the back burner for a minute now and we all know that never feels too good to have things looming! Other than that, a whole crap load of events are hitting my agenda and it’s that time of year in Toronto that even though snow and cold likes to taunt us… we just retaliate by partying even harder!

Here’s a roll call of  the events gwannin’ this week, in case ya’ll are experiencing some cabin fever and need to get out! Check:

Soul Custody

[birthday girl Allie at her dance party]

Trying to catch the attention of the second cutest (sorry, I’m biased to Lucy Pearl) kitty in the world, I sat comfortably in Allie and Evanna’s living room as little Lola played with my necklace. “You better be coming to our listening party on the 7th, Char!” Said Allie, getting up from her seat to change the track on her iPhone. I gave her a sassy look of “Uhhh, OBVIOUSLY. And I’ll be there with my camera,” I retorted back to her. Hair almost as full of life as Allie herself, the petite, beautiful light-skinned woman I came to know this past summer epitomizes what a soul connection is. Extremely talented dancer, singer, gymnast and super sweet human of LIFE, Allie is a fellow cancer who vibes my vibes and I am always excited to see at any gathering.
