Joey Bada$$ makes “Waves” in Calgary at Republik Nightclub [Photos]
Calgary, AB – On Sept. 12, our friends over at True Rhythm brought Joey Bada$$, Statik Selektah, and Kirk Knight (of the Pro Era crew) to Calgary for two shows. These were Joey’s only Canadian shows on his current tour (which included some Rock the Bells stage time, as well as gigs at Bumbershoot Festival, and more). But don’t worry, Joey fans of Canada: Joey’s upcoming Smoker’s Club Tour kicks off next month. And it’s scheduled to stop in Toronto and Montreal.
Calgary showed mad love for Joey. After his all-ages show wrapped up at the Alibi Room, Joey headed over to Republik Nightclub to perform for the older folks (ie: the ones of age to consume alcohol). Though he didn’t hit the stage until shortly after 1 a.m., Joey turned things up and had the crowd spitting along to his hits. Check out these photos that Stefan Lewis shot for HipHopCanada at the show.
