We all knew it was going to be a good show when The Danforth Music Hall was packed to the brim for No Mana. I was talking to a few people outside, and they told me that they were at the event as much for the opening act as they were for Rezz. I went for both; I could have never expected the sheer amount of energy that was pulsing through the crowd. It created a rush that both artists used to create one of the most energetic nights Toronto has had in quite some time.
Everything was perfect. It’s tough to decide if something was “the best show” or “the greatest of all time”, but without question, it was a flawless, perfect performance. Hype grew and the building buzzed with energy as we waited for Rezz to begin.
She entered to a modified version of “Relax”, the opening song on her newest album “Mass Manipulation”. A deep voice counted down the first drop of the night, and that set the tone for the next two hours. Almost every single person was headbanging. People complained to me that their neck was becoming sore, but they couldn’t stop. Rezz pulled them in.
Rezz’s tour is complete with glitched visuals, an abundance of energy, and a cult following that continues to grow. It’s a show you don’t want to miss, and one I wish I could attend again. She’s an incredible performer; LED goggles pull you in and never let go – that’s the way the fans like it.
