I’ve been going to a lot of shows lately. So, I think I’m going to do my best to blog them here on candlewaxrecords.com. Unfortunately, I may have to start with this most recent performance and work backwards a bit, but we’ll get all caught up.
I went to see Tyler the Creator at the 9:30 club here in my home town Washington DC. I found my usual spot in the back of the club near the sound man. Tyler hit the stage promptly at 9:0o following a DJ set from his comical side kick, Taco. After Tyler’s opening song, he made a joke about how he was surprised how “hood” DC is while making a crack about getting roughed at Whole Foods. Personally, I had a great time and Tyler did not disappoint. Up to his usual antics and being backed up by hype man Jasper. The three delivered a show filled with emotion, intensity and frequent comical bits. The crowd was exceptionally young as you might expect. However, I was pleasantly reminded of all the shows I went to at the 9:30 club when I was 15 and knew that they were having a great experience. Quite frankly, it was nice to be around that energy. It was quite comical though to watch the bartenders twiddle their thumbs with the lack of attendees that were over 21. On multiple occasions Tyler mentioned how he was feeling the crowd here in DC. Which was live! It was nice that he acknowledged that. Tyler Washington DC Verified?
