Down With Webster

When: Fri., Jan. 8, 8 p.m. 2010

Rich girl or not, if you want to see Down With Webster live, now’s your chance. The Toronto hip-hop band, currently riding the wave of their newest release Time to Win, Vol. 1, is set to play an acoustic in-store set at Mic Mac Mall Thursday, plus two electric shows that day and the following. While the band doesn’t have anything acoustic-sounding on its album, vocalist Cam Hunter says the seven-member group is up for the challenge. “All the guys are really capable musicians, so it’s not hard for them to rearrange and switch keys in songs, and to come up with new parts to completely revamp the songs to change it up so it works acoustically,” he says. Aside from Hunter, the band includes Bucky (vocals), Pat (vocals), Tyler (bass/keys), Marty (drums), Kap (hype man) and Diggy (DJ), with some of the guys having played together 12 years ago (in junior high!) when Down With Webster was just getting started. Hunter says the band’s set to return to its Halifax fans to kick off a new tour, so give them a hearty welcome and a few suggestions for their acoustic setlist. –Holly Gordon
