Watsky & Dumbfoundead @ The Phoenix

Earlier this month, San Francisco rapper Watsky brought his Cardboard Castles Tour to Toronto. He played a sold-out show at The Phoenix Concert Theatre and I covered it for Faze Magazine.

After stumbling upon his YouTube channel and seeing his awesome music videos and listening to his catchy songs, I became a fan. Here's the video that went viral, launching him into YouTube stardom (24 million views!)

He combines humour and witty lyrics with sophisticated skills of spoken word. His latest album, Cardboard Castles, was just released last month - check out his video for "Moral of the Story" (he kicked off his show with this awesome track)

He also brought fellow Californian rapper Dumbfoundead, who's been his opening act along the tour. I didn't really know much of his stuff before, but he's such a dope performer. Here's one of his songs he included in his set: "New Chick"

Check out my photos from the show:

And for your own enjoyment, here are a few more of his music videos - they are all so great.
