Veggie heads and creatures of Hip Hop culture trickled into the legendary S.O.Bs vibing to the beats to DJ Meka.

As the audience slowly filled a young Damon St. Cloud, hailing from Jersey, stepped on stage with DJ Phyer around 8:30 p.m.  Rocking an impressive beat selection and young yet introspective feel good lyrics St. Cloud opened up the audience and engaged the crowd. Performing solid cuts from his latest project, he left the audience with a few dope quotable moments and more to look forward to as he grows as an artist.  Next to hit the stage was Trial & Era.  A three man hip hop squad determined to make it out the hood with struggle bars and hard hitting beats.  The group brought much needed energy with their rock oriented feel and live band backing them, yet something felt off the entire performance.

Finally, Casey Veggies made his way to the stage around 10:50 p.m., slowly emerging from the back in a dramatic fashion.  Veggies hit the stage and wasted no time performing jams from his 2013 effort Life Changes. Song like “The Boy”, “She In My Car”, “Faces” and “The Team” got the crowd so hype at times they were screaming the lyrics.  Veggies took it to another level performing his collaboration with Dom Kennedy “CDC” and also unveiled a new song with upcoming songstress Mylo Smith.  After taking the audience through a roller coaster of energy and emotion, Veggies closed out his set with his latest singles “Tied Up” and “Back Flip”.  A truly dope performance Casey Veggies is slowly building the anticipation for his upcoming major label debut Live & Grow due out this summer.  Make sure you don’t miss the tour when it stops in a hood near you! # LiveAndGrow
