2011 Spring Tour Schedule
This March through June, Toronto’s most notorious revolutionary hip-hop artists; “Test Their Logik” will be touring across the portion of Turtle Island known as “Kanada” with their long-awaited debut album. They are looking to connect with communities large and small on this journey in order to help develop links between communities, do shows to bring together radical minds, offer workshops for mind and body, and inspire people to imagine radical transformation and freedom.  

Test Their Logik is made up of two revolutionary MC’s: Testament and Illogik. The pair were recently charged with conspiracy and other indictable offences for a widely-distributed music video they made titled “Crash The Meeting” which encouraged resistance to Toronto’s G20 summit. After 5 months of non-association conditions, these charges were stayed, and the duo are once again able to record and tour together.

Looking to tell their stories and listen to others across this land, they plan on hitting the road with their music, radical literature, workshops and talks. In past tours they have done shows large and small in bars, basements, alternative venues, community centres, schools, and auditoriums. Reaching out to urban and rural, indigenous and settler, young and old, and people of all walks of life and backgrounds, Test Their Logik is breaking the barriers imposed on them. In addition to performing their powerful thought-provoking music, Test Their Logik are happy to speak on the current state and potential of hip-hop, art and resistance.

Testament can also speak on power from below, resistence and repression, and leaderless organizing, with the G20 as a case in study. He can also lead a report-back workshop from his fact-finding trip to Palestine last year. Illogik is a certified and trained yoga instructor and martial arts practitioner who combines the ideas of both into ‘warrior yoga” sessions, basic self-defence workshops, as well as anti-oppression trainings.

“The ways we can connect are endless, the point is that we make contact with each other, build our capacity for grassroots power, lay down roots and build the networks that we will need in the future.”

These are tentative dates for our proposed route. If you live in any of these cities and want to help make this happen, then send an email to: holler(A)testtheirlogik.com. We are also open to revisions, if your community is interested in having us visit you. We are interested in connecting with people on reservations, intentional communities, small towns and large metropolises so get in touch!
