I was a bit iffy about going to this concert beforehand. Nothing against Danny Brown, I just really wanted to see Bob Mould this week and wasn't sure if I could afford to see both shows so close together. Plus I really didn't care about seeing Baauer. However, my good friend DJ Danny G went by himself, and fresh off the high of a well-received radio show, I decided that I could use the night out to celebrate. So hearing that Danny Brown hadn't started yet, I barrelled on down the highway to try and get in before he went on. I miraculously found a good parking spot and headed into the show.
First thing I noticed about the venue was the smell. The smell of pot had permeated every square inch of air in the building. I knew that we were in for a wild night. After I arrived the DJ whose name starts with a G but I can't really be bothered to remember started and played for about an hour or so. He was okay I guess. Just vaguely dubsteppy doodling with knobs. I'm not that into DJ shows if you can tell. It seemed to get the frattier guys at the show pumped, though, so good for him.
Danny Brown finally came on around 11, and damn. Dude can really work a crowd. Multiple moshpits started throughout the night, which I wasn't really expecting from the polo-clad fellows who were there to see "the Harlem Shake guy". Mr. Brown kept the audience dancing and rapping along throughout the entirety of his hour-long set. My only complaint would be that the bass tended to drown out the rest of the instrumentals and some of the vocals. Other than that, the show was enormously fun, and I was glad I went.
Oh, I didn't stay for Baauer. I really wanted some chicken strips.
