Atmosphere Concert Recap

Pontiac MI 8/7/11
1 Prof
King Gampo


I walked in to the building about an hour into Prof's set (the line was around the block) and I was immediately hit with a wave of emotion. Prof isn't a very good rapper but he makes up for it with his on-stage energy and frenetic arm waving. I only saw three songs but his highlight was definitely his last song, which featured the rhyme 'I'm at your show asleep like a possum/you're at mine like This is totally awesome!'
2 Blueprint
Adventures in Counter-Culture


Blueprint played next and he was the only act other than Atmosphere that I had heard before the evening. His set was a lot lower energy than Prof's but he still put on a good show. The crowd was a lot less into his set than Prof's, which was disappointing because Blueprint had a lot of good songs. Highlight: Five Years Ago
3 Evidence
Cats & Dogs


By the time Evidence got on, everybody was just really excited for Atmosphere and kind of ignored him. Despite the lack of attention, Evidence and on-stage cohort DJ Babu still went as hard as they could. I didn't recognize anything that he played but he had a sick (pseudo?) freestyle about the 10 necessities to get to a live show and what to wear (protip: deodorant is a necessity). Babu also had a really cool DJing freestyle which would have to be the highlight because I'm pretty sure Evidence only did 5 songs.
4Atmosphere
The Family Sign


Atmosphere came on at 11 and blew everybody away. Slug was a completely different person from his Lollapalooza set: interacting with individuals in the crowd, running around and jumping and seeming to have a really good time. I talked to Ant a little before and got the impression he didn't dig his time at Lolla and the group definitely seemed at home in a small venue. The setlist was all over the place; it focused mostly on The Family Sign and Lemons but they also played old-school favorites like Sunshine and Shrapnel. Most of the fans (myself included) weren't as acquainted with their old stuff and I almost feel like he lost the crowd in some places. It didn't really matter though because there was a group of people that knew every single word in the front and Slug just fed off them. Definitely a great first hip-hop concert. Highlights: Sunshine, Puppets, Lovelife/My Notes, She's Enough, Yesterday (best closer I've ever seen)
