I scurried over to the sold-out The Grand Theatre to catch most of RZA‘s set. The Wu-Tang Clan producer/MC performed as his Bobby Digital alter-ego and controlled the crowd with “Long Time Coming” and “Booby Trap” from the just-released Digi Snacks LP. The set was dominated by material from that album, and RZA turned the gig into a kick-ass block party.

Near the end, he broke out older classics “Wu Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing Ta F’ Wit,” “Reunited” and “Shame On A Nigga” near the end. They all made the crowd of mostly college kids go absolutely ape-shit, and it was a perfect way to close out my coverage of the fest. [Chart Attack]

RZA‘s tour as Bobby Digital is almost over. He hits Webster Hall in NYC this Saturday July 5th. Tickets are still on sale.

Other artists Rae caught on day three (June 27, 2008) of the Sled Island Festival in Calgary included Broken Social Scene, Tegan and Sara, and Yo La Tengo. The rest of the pics from that day below….
