SZA

THE CTRL TOUR

I Honestly don’t have too much to say…

I was so excited to see SZA, herself and Kehlani  are my spirit animals so I was more than ecstatic to see her.

Merch

Merch was very simple very SZA, she had solid color T’s with Ctrl printed on them. The shirt I got was the closes to unique, it has a flowers, an avocado, and a candy corn on it…

The concert

The concert was a vibe but it went by sooo quick! It was not much of a dj to hype the crowd but in the same sentence that may be how she likes her sets to be. SZA has a shy spirit about her which is cute but kind of made the show boring. She didn’t play much of her old music which was fine with me because I’m a CTRL album fan but for the old heads I’m sure they would have appreciated it. The concert may have went by quick because it started an hour late and she probably didn’t get to use all of her time, I’m not sure. This is literally all I have to say about this, I would still go to another show I just know what to expect.

Decks In The Park

This past weekend I had the chance to attend Decks In The Park  courtesy of  Dallas Observer. 

Before attending I did a little research and I didn’t find much information  so I didn’t know what to fully expect. The event was located at Kylde Warren Park which was the perfect location for this event because it gave people plenty of room to be free and dance.

Decks In The Park is a sponsored music event we’re more than hundreds of people come out to listen to Dallas Djs such as Big J, Johnny Funk, and more, who all put their own mix on  various genres of music. This event was hosted by Dj Souljah whom  definitely knows how to control the crowd. I was fortunate enough to have VIP Access which allowed me to see how much fun everybody was having. One could tell everybody in the crowd was having a good time!

I have been to many concerts but never to one like this. I can not wait to attend the next one! This is the perfect event for family and friends to attend, I highly recommend not missing the next one !

 

Teenage Emotions Tour

Lil Yachty, Evander Grimm, & Sailing Team

Fiesta

8/14/17

Lets take notes on how Dallas was the first city Yachty started his tour in and it is simply because we are the best! Let me start by saying every time Lil Yachty comes to Dallas I never miss a show but all the previous shows have been him opening for someone else. The fact this was his first headlining tour, things just really felt different, different in a good way of course.

Evander Grimm

Ok SO BOOM! Me being me I got there late and missed Evander Grimm, whom I was really excited to see! (Ill never forgive myself). Me just getting there alone was soo  much drama I literally ran so I wouldn’t miss him but I did! I was sad asf BUT believe me when “X Men”  came on I was all over the place going crazy. I’m defiantly adding a video…

Sailing Team

PERRY– I walked in right when Perry was performing but to be honestly I didn’t even know Perry had his own music and that’s my fault for being sleep.

JBan – Who is one of my favorites, I’m not gone lie I was expecting more from Promise Land. “90’s Babies” is my shit and I feel like the crowd would’ve really vibe out to that one and now that I think about it, it goes with the Teenage Emotions feel. That’s definitely something to think about for future shows.

BYOU–  Your performance and energy was great, I have a new favorite song which is “Ksubis” I’m with that gangsta shit that’s probably why I like it.

Kodie Shane– She is forreal a Rock Star, her presence really wake you up and want to watch her. I loved every song she performed and now I’m really interested into listening to her more.

(I’m almost positive I missed some of the acts because a girl next to me passed out and her boyfriends was looking at me for help so I literally had to run a mile to find help! More Drama)

I did catch everyone for “All In” which is my all time favorite song! As you can tell..

Ugh! If you know me you know Lil Yachty is one of my favorite artist so I’m going to try not to make this as long as it can be. Let me start by saying you’re real asf for remixing and performing one of Dallas’s very own TayK’s song “The Race”, my head almost exploded!

I love the song selections and order he decided to perform them in, artist sometime tend to fuck up in this area. I don’t know if it was only me that notice it but in the middle of performing Lil Yachty called for a break and I think it was because of technical difficulties. The show continued to go on and it was fantastic it was truly a show to remember! He set the tone and had good crowd control for each song he performed, i.e when he performed Bring It Back he had disco lights going on and when he performed Minnesota he made the crowd form mosh pits and rage.

This show was one of the best concerts i’ve attended all summer.

Merch

Besides the Kehlani’s merch, LilYachty’s merch was one of the most unique of this summer. I thought it was super clever because Lil Yachtys Favorite food is PIZZA!

Dali VooDoo

Ive wanted to shine some light on upcoming Dallas Artist for a while now but just haven’t really felt motivated and that’s my own personal problem! It wasn’t until I saw Dallas’s very own Dali VooDoo opening performance for Gucci Mane himself and I just knew I couldn’t pass up this opportunity to blog about this. During the performance all I could imagine was how Dallas music scene is really evolving  & I believe Dali is going to be apart of that!

While Dali was performing I looked to the crowd to catch the vibe from what I saw it was either a YES or NO for some people. I will say Dali has a very  unique style so some people may be unreceptive of it. Although I will say it was a definit YES for me!

IMG_2393I love Dali VooDoo style I love the fact that he is himself and unapologetic ! If you’re not open to different things you won’t understand it which is the vibe I caught from the crowd but you have no choice but to respect him due to the grind he is putting into his music which is art within itself.

If you have not heard of Dali VooDoo I would recommend listening to Rainwater. That song is my go to song before work, it puts me in a ” let me get ready mood” , I just be jamming! During his performance I notice people singing along to Swing Low so if you are a new comer I would suggest listening to those two songs first.  Like I said Rainwater is my personal favorite.

Fun Fact!

Dali was once employed at Bath & Body works and now he is opening for people like Travis Scott and Gucci Mane. This really inspires me because as much as I want to say fuck my 9 to 5 , Dali’s grind shows that we have to do what we have to do and to just keep grinding and working hard which really motivates me.

Its Gucci

I’ve dreamt of this day every since Trap God! Summer 2013 Trap House 3 changed my life in ways words can’t explain! Call me dramatic but we all connect to artists on spiritual levels, you’ll be lying if you said you don’t. Anyway I always knew Gucci Mane was real but to see him in the flesh really confirmed things for me.

Ok so BOOM!

IMG_2349I arrived at the concert literally between  8-9 pm . I usually don’t get to concerts this  early but I wasn’t to sure how this venues “will call ” worked , so I  just decided to arrive early!   I  go take my dope ass back drop Gucci pic and continue on bout my day may mention IT WAS NO GUCCI MERCH! I could not believe it then again he isn’t on tour he just came for his show in Dallas! Anyway 10 p.m comes around  and opening acts are still performing ” No Biggie”, I said to myself. 11 o’clock comes & now I’m getting worried , usually I’m leaving the concert around 11:30 ! Soon enough I see Gucci Mane’s million dollar smile from a mile away and my life was then complete.

He opened with “Both”  and from there he really only performed most of the songs he is featured in. I mean it’s  Gucci so I vibed out but I was really hoping for some Trap House 3 or Trap God 1 or 2! The only tbt I got was “Bricks” but like I said it was Gucci so I was just blessed to be there ! I was assuming because he isn’t on tour he had free range to perform watever but clearly I thought wrong.

I was utterly grateful to have witness a live Gucci performance, I just wish I could’ve gotten some merch & most of all some old Gucci!

#NoBodySafeTour

 

Future Concert

Lets talk about how the only reason I went to this concert was because Migos was in attendance and I previously missed the Migos tour. I can vibe to Future but im more of a Migos fan! With that being said I missed ALL of the opening acts including MIGOS!!! I was beyond  devastated, the venue location in Houston had a big part of this. The concert was located in The Woodlands which is literally nothing but woods. If you attend a concert at this location I advise you get there an hour early just to find parking.

 

Future was cool he played all of his old hood shit that  I like & of course some of his new music . The only thing that I could not stand is that he kept ending the songs so quickly! He didn’t even let the songs play half way  through without switching to the next song. I have a friend that attended the Dallas concert and she said the exact same thing. I honestly think it is because he had to appear and perform at the BET Awards that same weekend.  The concert went by so fast  it was over before I knew it. Here’s the recaps!

Kehlani

IMG_1205

The Album

I’m just going to talk about the headliner , being Kehlani ! In all honesty I’ve recently just started listening to Kehlani when her more recent album “Sweet Sexy Savage” came out. The album it’s self is so uplifting, it lets me know it’s ok to be a bitch long as you are THAT bitch ! It lets me know it’s ok to cry but you’re going to be ok. Most importantly the album gives me more passion and strength to continue with accomplishing my goals. If you need motivation or looking for someone to relate to, I definitely recommend this album!

The Concert

Literally a couple of shows before the Dallas show, Kehlani had a break down on stage and had to cancel. I’m not gonna lie I was kind of nervous to see if she would even show up in Dallas. Baby !! When I tell you, she SHOWED UP AND SHOWED OUT! Her energy was everything you could literally feel it !  Throughout the show  she would say  inspiring and uplifting messages to the crowd. Which I loved because sometimes people just need to hear nice things ! Her having actual conversation with the audience was so different to me. Speaking of different let’s talk about her all girl show; her dj to her dancers were all female. S/o to her Dj Noodles she is so amazing, she definitely knows how to control the crowd. In a nut shell the concert was everything & more. Kehlani set and song order was perfect she even ended with “Crazy” which was also perfect because that’s my favorite song!
