Lizzo's next gig is on a Toronto streetcar

After Lizzo led her GRRRL PRTY crew through a hot live set at Northern Spark on the same weekend that the Green Line opened between Minneapolis and St. Paul, the talented breakout MC has public transportation on her mind again.
On Wednesday, as part of Toronto's NXNE Music Festival, Lizzo will perform aboard a redesigned streetcar, and as far as we know, she won't be passing a hat around when she's finished.
The 100-capacity MiO Squirtcar won't be making all the stops, so the shows will be confined to a pretty tight loop. After each performance, held June 18-21, NXNE wristband holders have to hop off for "a party that constantly evolves."
In addition to Lizzo, Har Mar Superstar is also performing a set on the revamped streetcar. Shannon & the Clams, the Pizza Underground, Small Black, araabMUZIK, Reggie Watts, and more, will all be swiping their TTC Metropasses too.
After Toronto, Lizzo will return to Minneapolis to kick off Rock the Garden on Saturday afternoon.
Update: Here's Lizzo in action on the streetcar!
