MITMondays: Broccoli City Recap
On this past Saturday the 5th annual Broccoli City Festival was held at the Gateway Pavallion. Even though the rain tried to dampen the mood it was still lit. Since it was lit you already know theEveryDayWeekend team had to slide through. In case you missed any of the action, don't worry, we got you covered.
We started our day off a little later than most, but we pulled up just in time to see the homie Chaz French. His set happened to be one of my favorites of the day. His energy was top notch and the crowd matched that energy every step of the way. If we're being honest, Chaz spent all of his time amongst the people in the crowd. It was just a dope experience to see the growth of Chaz and it was just a reminder that these things take time.
After we finished rocking with Chaz we slid over to the other stage to see 21 Savage. 21's performance was much better than the last time I saw him at Howard Theatre. He was more into the performance and gave us a much better performance. He ran down his hits but in my opinion he did not perform his best verse which was his feature on YG's I Be On. Outside of that 21 gave us a dope performance.
Not going to lie, the performance I was most interesting in seeing was Lil Yatchy. After his sit down with Joe Budden, it was only right to stop by the boat show. First off, his DJ was amazing. He knew exactly what to play to get the crowd hype. When Yatchy came out the crowd keep took that energy to the next level. My time with Yachty was cut short because I had to see the queen Solange.
Solange's set was simply amazing. From the backdrop to the band everything was perfect. Her combination of song and dance was top notch. I pulled up a little late so unfortunately I missed cranes in the sky but I saw T.O.N.Y. And Mad so it was still pretty lit.
Ending the night was the always energized Rae Sremmurd. The duo always brings the energy and the crowd definitely reciprocated. Performing a variety of hits from both albums and a few features, Rae Sremmurd ended the night with a bang.
Broccoli City was a dope experience that I'm glad I was apart of. The only thing that could've made it better would've been the weather. From the vendors to the food to the actual artist it couldn't have been beat. As Always....
