TikTok has been a platform for the uprising of so many new bands and artists. One of these artists is named Malcolm Todd, an alternative R&B singer who has been taking over the genre by storm. With a sound that appeals to fans of Tyler, the Creator, Steve Lacy and Dominic Fike, he has had no trouble gaining the a fanbase from all over the United States. With a nearly sold-out U.S. tour, the singer stopped by the Heights Theater in Houston on April 18, 2024.

Starting off the show was dj, Charlie Addis. Addis gave a great opening to the night as he hyped the Houston crowd up with hits across multiple genres, allowing everyone to dance to something they liked. He played music by Gorillaz, Central Cee, Playboi Carti and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Highlights of the set were when “Mr. Brightside” and “Kiss Me Thru The Phone” were played.

Not only was the performance great, but Todd was super interactive with crowd as well. Many people threw gifts to the stage, which included friendship bracelets, sunglasses and even a custom license plate. To say thanks for the many gifts he received, the singer took the time to talk to the crowd, sign merchandise and even did a BeReal for a fan. The pauses he took to connect with the audience made the show even better. One highlight of his fans interactions was when he brought up someone to play drums with the band as they performed a cover of “Babydoll” by Dominic Fike.

Other songs performed through the night were “Hot in NY,” “Rockstar Boyfriend,” “Mac” and “Thailand.” Every song brought a great energy to the room, and despite the high temperature in the room, it seemed like no one wanted it to end.

Overall, the night was full of love and dancing. Malcolm Todd gave Houston a great time through his amazing music and kind personality. If you get the chance, this is one artist you need to see live.
