funner.... so you ARE going to the sac show? cause me, spitta, sactown are all gonna meet up with each other when we get there, and my friend who is a HUGE fan, just not on the boards yet.. so if your gonna go ill PM ya my number and you can text/call and we can all meet up!
HEY! Lets all smoke together before the show
OMG so.. if i could even begin to describe this night!!! but ill try,
It started with drinking some 40s before hand and a few beers inside, then, as i was walking to the bathroom I see KK in the back so I introduce myself and ask if he wants to smoke after the show and he was like ya girl ill just be chillin...so I ran to my friend and said "We have to get some tree right now" so i call my girl comes out to downtown and drops off an 8th and we roll a couple blunts..
so then as the show is beginning and they guys come out, they are just SO enthusiastic and i was in the front! it was great. They came on around midnight and we were partying till damn near 2. The concert insisted of, Spitta lettin Thes wear his SF hat when they played SF knight, me n my friends recording as much as possible then our phones dying:( We lite a blunt but then the people wouldn't let us smoke in there!
You could tell DOuble was like damnnn. But when "come on lets get high" came on, he had a blunt and i supplied my lighter and lit it for him:) then Thes all of a sudden was chanting and passed the mic to me and me and him were going back and forth!
then they started playing "time to rock our sh!t" and i was rapping to the whole things and Double looked at me like "damn" lol, (it pays to know the lyrics cause then you get the mic ! hah) THEN i bought 2 CDs and they some how got stolen out of my purse:( since one was my friends, i went back and bought another one for him and they gave me a free purse to carry it in since mine were gone. (Cute PUTS bag:)) So even though that put a LITTLE damper on the night, the ultimate best part occured..
after the show I was nervous to ask double to smoek for some reason even though I had already spoken with him 3 times.. but i popped through the back and was like "hey double, wanna smoke right quick before we leave?" so he gets up and the guy that works there took us to the back and we had this 2 blunt rotation just talking and chillin, even Double was HELLLA high (Norcal weed is the best:p) and he was like "i gotta go yall" haha. He was so chill...
THE ONE thing i didn't get was a pic with them:( stupid phone.. but i def took a mental pic and got them to both sign my Beer record and both gave them a hug after the show. Double be givin bear hugs too! lol..
Man that doesn't even sum up the night, the show was ridiculous. The stage was like 2 feet long but they managed to rock it, thes jumped in the crowd and i was dancing next to him lol, (while playing hit the top) They were drinkin their beers and just havin so much fun. FIRST TIME IN SACRAMENTO, so thankful I got to experiene it and hang out with Spitta and Sactownconnection from the boards.
I OFFICIALLY LOVE PUTS 100 TIMES more than i ever thought! lol. So glad i got to toke with Double, that was one thing i had to do lol.
thats dope....u need to get to LA next weekend!!! its gonna rage
ILL! sounds great boombip - you got some video then?
Damn, it's been so long since I been here that I thought my password wouldn't take, y'all. Sorry if it's been a while, life is nuts. Hopefully, I'll be able to starting posting more in the near future.
BUT... I thought I'd hop on and talk about this show. Managed to snag decent video (horrible sound... thanks, iPhone) of the first hour of the PUTS set, then my capacity ran out (first time I've ever wished I bought the 16Gb), so I missed the end of the set (Acid Raindrops, San Francisco Knights, Trippin At The Disco, and the encore of You & Time to Rock Our sh!t). I'll see what I can do about shrinking the file size, breaking it up, posting, etc.
I got there an hour early, around the same time as spitta and his homies, and boombip came shortly thereafter. While all the acts were inside setting-up, we all stood in the rain. At one point, Thes got in his minivan (that's the g ride right there) & excuted a perfect parallel park, so we all clapped for him 'cause we're idiots.
Anyway, we got inside, we each grabbed a $3 cup of Rubicon, I checked out the merch table, and eventually bought a $50 PUTS record bag (by Anvil) + free tote (show you pictures later). There were some decent opening acts & DJs; the crowd took a while to warm up, but they got there. DJ Day came on about 10 or so, but the turntables were having SERIOUS technical issues. One of them refused to work, even through the PUTS set later on. Day managed to do a damn fine job regardless. Big ups.
One of the coolest parts about the whole show was when Thes just shrugged the difficulties off. I could see another act getting PISSED. In fact, he even reminiced on how it was like their shows back in '98. Anyway, boombip told you about the rest.
Thes started it off with the Super Mario 2 remix, came into the crowd during Hit The Top (almost knocked me over the montior I was standing next to, haha... damn, Thes: you suck, man!!), we all sang "on them warm SACRAMENTO nights!!!" hella loud, and on and on and on. I can't even remember half of what went down 'cause that sh*t was so much fun. I straight lost my voice the next day (I had already been sick last week, so it wasn't in good shape to begin with).
Wouldn't have it any other way.
After the set, we smoked out with Double (well... I didn't smoke... possible drug test in my future, y'all), I got my "tote bag" signed, and I went back to the dude at the merch table, who let me fill up my previously-bought PUTS bag with some damn fine records (for a nominal fee).

...And boombip: here were the only two non-blurry frames I could lift from the video I took that had you and Thes in them (one is actually lit up 'cause of someone else's flash). I think they're fresh, but let me know if you don't like 'em, and I'll edit them out of the post...
OMG sactown! can you not post a pic that i look HORRIBLE in lol, ill only allow it cause Thes is in it but damnnnn lmao im a hot mess!
boombip, you aren't a hot mess. You are clearly having immense fun. Although, in the second pic it looks like you're saying "Heyyyyyyyyyyyyy...Thesssssssssssssss" and he's trying really hard to ignore you. lol
lmao na, he was just jumping around, i think i was singing to the song at that point haha.
