Shad @ Pianos in CMJ 2008 (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Fam.Canadian rapper/musician Shad (aka Shadrach Kabango) will in fact play his first headlining NYC show (the birthplace referenced above) on Wednesday, November 4th at Pianos. Tickets are on sale.
This is Shad's FIRST headlining show in the birthplace of Hip Hop Culture. If you're in the city, come hang. If you know people who are in the city, let'em know.
At last year's CMJ, Shad made his first NYC appearance (the second, a day later, was a Brooklyn Vegan showcase). At the BV gig (a major highlight of the day), Shad came equipped with a guitar and a DJ - alternately, he sometimes plays backed by a band. He was also nominated for 2008's Polaris Prize for his record The Old Prince.
Check out Shad's laid-back, old-school-inspired style for yourself in the videos below...
