My second round back to The Regency Ballroom proved to be yet another thrilling and enjoying experience. Earls friends advertised in the tour were a artist named L.I.V.E and iMP. Both artist defiantly livened the crowd up and kept us hyped for the main artist in question, Earl Sweatshirt. Earl performed mostly tracks off of his third studio album “Some Rap Songs” while showing love to tracks off of “Doris” and I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt”. Now when Sweatshirt entered the stage I won’t lie, I didn’t know it was him because he had a hoodie on and I was baked like a apple pie.
What follows is my personal memory of the night I experienced Earl. After one of my favorite bass blasting songs, “Pre” I heard songs I deeply enjoy like “Molasses”, “Inside”, “Off Top” and “Huey” in their full glory through the unique vocals that Earl posses. Atmosphere wise the crowd was dope, though there wasn’t a lot of people singing with Earl for every song, the parts that mattered was where the crowd shined and came together to project our voice with him. Now while I was singing like a drunk uncle with my buddy Diego, I will say I did wish I heard songs like “Whoa” or “Chum” since those are two of Earls most notable songs from his career so far. I was not disappointed with the show however, rather just excited to finally experience Earl since I missed out on him back at Camp Flog Gnaw 2019. I left San Francisco with $185 dollars worth of merch, two burgers and pies from Nations Burgers and one hell of a night to always appreciate thanks to the fans and my brother Diego for being there.
Here is a little collection of some of the songs I recorded from the event. In Order : “20 Wave Caps”, (28 seconds) “December 24”, (48 seconds) “Molasses”, (1:37) “Off Top”, (2:13) “AM // Radio”, (2:45) “Inside”, (3:24) “The Mint”, (4:17) “Faucet”, (5:51) “Huey”.
