Los Angeles,  CA (The Hollywood Times) 11/21/17 – Pandora aficionados were treated to a Sunday night special. Two of the freshest, hottest new musical acts in the world; Logic and his support act (and sometimes collaborator) Khalid. Both artists are riding high with recent billboard hits and critical acclaim. Their performances were rapturously (sic) received by the butt to flank throng in attendance.

Khalid was first out of the gate, and exuded command and confidence beyond the grasp of most mortal 19 year olds. Khalid is an all- around talent  who has the dance moves and the RB chops to go the distance. He also maintained an unforced rapport with his enthusiastic, cell-phone wielding audience. Khalid treated us to a brisk 11 song set that climaxed with his two radio hits, “Location” and “Young, Dumb and Broke”.

Logic took the stage as headliner, riding a wave of popularity and critical acclaim courtesy of his provocative and controversial record and video. “1-800-273-8255” which artfully documents the twin hot button topics of interracial gay teen romance and teen suicide.  Logic espoused the less-is-more ethos musically, accompanied only by DJ rhetorik – who provided the musical superstructure for Logic’s rapping flights of fancy.  Logic owned the crowd from the first beat, and displayed an easy sense of humor and charisma. The presentation was as blingy as the music was Spartan, Rear stage projections  augmented the music rather than distracted. The visuals were a vital component to Logic’s muse which embraced both topical and personal subject matter.

Sunday night was a very hot ticket indeed; and if you were among the lucky who made it into the club, it was easy to see why.
