I’m having severe post-concert depression from this. I put serious thought into it and concluded that Death Grips’ set at FYF this year is easily the most intense show I’ve ever endured. Ever.
I think most of it has to come from the fact that FYF’s crowds are really the only crowds nowadays that aren’t preoccupied with their cellphones and aren’t afraid to get really active. An excited crowd makes the experience that much more memorable.
Also the fact that this is really the only show Death Grips has done all year - let alone having all three members of the band present. I knew we were lucky with having them show up, but I’m sure we all weren’t aware of how lucky we really were.
Once the horn went off and the beat dropped I pretty much blacked out. It’s all a blur in my memory, due to such a high rate of adrenaline. There weren’t any breaks between songs either, it was basically a 50-minute song with constant aggression. The set finished with MC Ride throwing the mic on the ground in a fury, and walking off stage.
Overall, easily the most fun I’ve had at a show probably ever. Best crowd I’ve ever been in. Come back to Los Angeles fuckers
