I think I expected too much from Snoop show, so I was left a bit disappointed. We hit up the Tavern to get some dinner before the concert. I knew a few people going to the show, only to find out they scalped their tickets for a large return on their investment. I was not tempted and wanted to see this show, so our group was a bit smaller than expected, but we still had fun.
Most of the seats at the Tavern were occupied by what seemed to be a 20-40ish aged white person. I was curious to see what kind of crowd this show was going to get and it started to unfold real quick when we walked in. We gave it the 80/20 rule. 80% of the ticketholders were white and 80% were high. Oh man it was rough. I do not partake in the MaryJ and never have. Sure felt like I did last night just by standing there. People were lighting up all over the place even though it was suppose to be a nonsmoking show. I had a headache the size of Montana in the morning. And I got a bit mouthy by the end of the show. I think there was a direct correlation to the doobies for both of those. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.
Back to the music. Show started at 9 with Devin the Dude. We headed over at 9:30 and the Dude still hadn’t started. This wasn’t good. And when this Dude went on, he sucked. He wasn’t rapping. He was just talking into the microphone, off beat and not rhyming at all. At least attempt to make every 30th word rhyme. Whatever. Off the stage.
Method Man and Redman came out next. One was dressed in Red. I asked if it was logical to assume he was Redman. They said no. So, I have no clue which was which but they did put on a better vocal show than the opening act. Lots of bass too. The crowd really got into it too. Both Method Man and Redman did some crowd surfing at the end. Check out the video below to see it. And then it was time for Snoop.
He finally went on at midnight. I was starting to get restless waiting for him. Good thing I took the next day off. He did the classic Gin and Juice among others. But there was no stage flare. No logo. Nothing. I guess I was expecting a little bit more of a performance show, not just rapping. Still glad we went to see the Dogg Father in action. Hmm, what show could be next?
