Latté D. Kyd plus her live backing band Sweet Bitch played all the way out in Etobicoke on a lovely Thursday night. April 19th, 2007 to be exact. While the venue was easy enough to get to, and thankfully for all of us who work early in the morning, on time… to an extent. I will admit first and foremost that it was still frustrating to have a show that late on a weeknight that I needed to get to, when I had work the next morning.
Thankfully they were on time, and were only the second act up. Unthankfully I found out as I arrived in between sets, that my friend Mandippal Jandu was first on the docket and I missed his set. Ah well, I saw him the next week afterwards anyways. (And will be writing about that soon enough)
Anyways. The show. Latté’s (Yes that’s her full and legal name from the rumours I’ve heard) has songs that are both pop in nature, funk in nature, and always have a bit of a female-rap in nature. Her self-admitted not being able to dance on stage like Beyoncee is a welcome change to those who think they can but really can’t.
I can really say I like Latté’s songs because from what I have been able to figure out, they’re about the good, and the bad things in life, but always spun to have a positive outlook. The world needs more positive outlooks. We’re just too jaded as a society.
While I’d say I can’t wait for her second album in her 3 part series to come out, it looks like I’ll have to. It’s a good thing I’m a patient person!
