A Night With James Bay

Well hello there!


This past week has been so busy for me. I've barely had time to even sit down! But busy weeks are my favourite because I'm never bored and it leaves me with great memories. On Monday April 27th I was lucky enough to attend the James Bay concert in Toronto with my best friend. I bought the tickets, what seems like forever ago, the second they were available... even though I was at work (sorry not sorry boss lady). I guess right after I bought them they were sold out which is pretty cool considering he hasn't really hit the radio yet in Canada. I actually started listening to him because of watching the Michalak family's Sunday vlogs so it's kinda rad that I was able to see him live!

I'd give you all of the logistics of my travel and everything but I'm sure that you probably really don't care about my 3 hour train/bus journey. Nor do you probably care that I got lost and bought a million subway tokens and took some streetcars. But basically I got to start and halfway finish the Being MacKenzie Book Club's book of the month (check my Instagram to see what one I chose)! And now I've told you about my journey that I said you probably don't care about and you're probably just waiting for the videos and pictures, but just cool it, I'll get there!

The show was held at The Mod Club which is a really cool place in Little Italy in Toronto. Even though the inside was packed, it appeared to be a really homey kind of club if you wanted to go out for the night which would be the kind of place I think I would go to (if I ever went out...). We got there basically at the end of the opener's set, but we were able to listen to about a song and a half of his (his name is Mark Sicilba) and he was a good opener. Considering it was so packed we spent probably a good 15 minutes looking for a decent spot since all of the tall people were at the front. We found a place that gave us full view of the stage and thankfully the girls in front stayed seated so we could see (the biggest thank you in the world goes out to them).

And then came time for the lovely and super talented James Bay to play his set. I'd been listening to his album (GO GET IT RIGHT NOW YOU WON'T REGRET A THING I PROMISE YOU) all day long and I sang my heart out to every single song that he played. It was a really nice set, with the upbeat songs and super intimate when it slowed down into the more personal songs. He has a song called Scars which is a beautiful song and essentially everyone in the place knew what it meant to him so we all just kind of quieted down to let him sing it, and it was an amazing moment. I took so many videos and pictures that I actually had to remove the John Mayer videos from 2 years ago just to be able to have space! I snapchatted (@mackenziebaynha) every song and I'm sure all of my friends were beyond annoyed but hey, they got to enjoy the concert too!

Now for the videos and pictures!
