Brooke Candy - XOYO, London
Potty-mouthed US rapper Brooke Candy delivered a memorable show at London's XOYO to a venue that was completely rammed down the front, with fans desperate to sample Miss C in the flesh. Tracks like 'Pussy Makes The Rules', 'Don't Touch My Hair Hoe', 'Everybody Does' and 'I Wanna Fuck Right Now' sent the crowd into a frenzy and they just about exploded when 'Das Me' appeared!
Her lyrics are downright crude and filled with lots of sexual content but deep down they seem to be telling girls just to do what they want and be who they want to be, which is a great message and one that seemed to be striking the right chord as I'd say the XOYO crowd were predominantly female.
Brooke's bash seemed more of a party than a gig, with a mid-set dancing competition ramping up the fun, with audience members battling it out for a place in the rapper's heart. There were plenty in the house with a Candy crush, with several objects thrown on stage to woo Miss C, including a Comme Des Fuckdown beanie (which didn't go down well), Pants (worn on her head) and one of the most unusual things I've seen thrown on stage - kippers! Luckily the fish were still in their sealed package and Brooke was delighted with her gift (well done that person!).
The XOYO show was certainly one of the most fun gigs I've been to this year and our host seemed to be having the time of her life too as she literally had be carried off stage by one of her team when the venue's curfew was enforced!
Brooke mentioned earlier in her set that she loved London so she'll hopefully be back in the capital soon enough. I know she's got a date in Scotland at T In The Park in July anyway and the Fix may well be there too...
