#SPOTTED: CHARLI XCX IN TORONTO AT THE HOXTON
There is no Female Artist owning Pop Music currently like Charli XCX. The 22-year-old English Singer/Songwriter’s voice certainly is familiar yet oddly enough there still is a degree of unfamiliarity with her name. You’ve heard her ability to write and sing an Earworm of a Hook whether it be Icona Pop‘s I Love It, Iggy Azalea‘s Fancy or even Boom Clap, made famous by arguably the Summer Movie of 2014, The Fault in our Stars.
Charli XCX, née Charlotte Aitchison may be young, but she’s long been perfecting her Pop Craftmanship since the age of 14. The Songstress was in Toronto today performing an intimate Gig at The Hoxton in trendy King West for an all-ages crowd, presented by Embrace Presents. After doing a compressed Media Blitz today at the Venue in advance of her upcoming second major label Disc, Sucker, Fans who lined the Bathurst St. entrance of the Venue midday were in for a huge treat as she took time to stop for Selfies before heading back to her Bus for a bit of relaxation.
Swedish Pop Sensation Elliphant opened the Show earlier this evening to warm response, before Charli XCX took the stage shortly after 10:30 PM. Fans sealed the perimeter of the stage and would be delighted by her high-energy performance featuring a mixture of her Repertoire, old and new. Solo Versions of I Love It and Fancy drove the Crowd absolutely wild as she paid homage to one of her greatest influences, Spice Girls in a shimmery Union Jack Dress, backed by a Female Band. New Single Break the Rules drew a positive response, channeling a rebellious yet carefree early Madonna. The comparisons vocally to an at-her-best Gwen Stefani are inevitable. The entire Crowd had sung along to Boom Clap before she was hurried off-stage and into her Bus once again, snapping Photos with a lucky two Fans after many asked, waiting hours for her at the Stage Door.
