Wordburglar 2009 Summer Tour

The Wordburglar

If you are into the Halifax or Toronto hiphop scene you might be familiar with my good pal Sean Jordan, otherwise known as the Wordburglar. SJ is embarking on his 2009 Summer Tour starting tonight at Rancho Relaxo (300 College Street) in Toronto, before working his way east to visit us on the coast. He will be doing a show here in Halifax on August 8th.

Being a fellow child of the 80s, SJ is into all things fun and colorful from that era, and works in many references to Gi-Joe and comic books into his songs. I wanted to make a little promotional poster for him from that era, and decided to attempt this re-creation of an old VHS cover entitled The Power. I came across the image a while ago, and was looking for an opportunity to re-make it.

I highly recommend checking out the upcoming Wordburglar shows if he swings by your city. Check his Myspace for dates and venues.
