Rivals of Time Release Party

Last night I willed myself to get dressed and head out into the pouring rain and gale force wind. I hopped into my car and made my way south trying my best to not slide off the road into oblivion along the way.  The destination was Canal Room for the release of Rivals of Time clothing. I also wanted to catch Fev and Siya's performances.

I got downtown safely, parked quickly and after more fighting with the wind and rain I made it inside.  I was a little shocked but more so pleasantly surprised to see a packed house. Despite the horrible weather, people came out in numbers to support their friends. A beautiful start indeed.

The show got started quickly and Fev kicked things off with some of his newest material from the mixtape "3:10 to Prop". His sister, vocalist Brook Penning, threw her stamp on the performance as well and they put the venue in the mood to party.

Siya was next to grace the stage and, for the first time ever, she brought a live band with her.  The band was on point and Siya turned the heat up another notch with her performances. Featured artist Lyric provided her silky smooth vocals on "Fade Away" and "Middle Finger" and the crowd's heads nodded in approval.

I had a great time at the show but I didn't get to stay until the end. It's a good thing I left when I did. This morning it took me 2.5 hours to get to work. Had I not had the little sleep I did, it could have been a nightmare trying to stay awake on the road.
