Rumble of the L

You can hear in the background

Hiss Golden Messenger

Folk-pop is their style

Piano sounds like the Stones

Vince Staples

Had orange backdrop

Gauging crowd for the mic drop

He won them over

6:09 CST (not on purpose that was the time I recorded)

Danny Brown

He reminds me of

Sir Smoke A Lot From Half Baked

Enjoyable set

6:59 CST

The crowd sways with each new hit
