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
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)
