The Roxy Theater in LA on the Sunset Strip
It took months of waiting but I'm so happy it happened. I went out to the historic venue The Roxy in Los Angeles to see Flamingosis for my birthday with my friends and cousins. I've been sharing this guy nonstop with everyone I come in contact and wrote an article on steemit just because I'm so excited for the young artist. He fuses excellent hip-hop beats with handpicked soul and jazz samples. He's on the come up, so listen to his shit now before everyone hears about him then you can say you heard him first. Below is an example of these soulful samples he rolls out.
I went with my girlfriend, a few friends from my rave crew ( I wasn't sure if they were gonna enjoy it because it isn't house music), couple friends from different circles , my cousins who are like a brother and sister to me, and a handful of my girlfriend's friends. I was ecstatic my cousin Laura made it down because she lives in a city a couple hours from LA - Ventura.
Around 11 it was time for the main event. He grabbed the microphone and started doing the "yo yo make some noise - how's everybody doin - let's fuckin go" routine but you could barely make out any words it was all muffled in his mic. But we weren't here to listen to him talk, we waited for the New Jersey beatmaker to get to work. His first coulple songs were ok but about 20 minutes in he started really getting into the rhythm, and the crowd reacted playing off his energy. Seeing him perform was quite an entertaining sight, as he really gets into his own shit hahahaha. About 45 minutes in he had complete control of the crowd. Everyone was finally moving to the beat, and he started getting into some improvisational bits. Down in the 2 videos below you'll really see the crowd start to move a little more
