one of the most exciting/terrifying nights of the last few years for me was the night i saw Death Grips at a small bar back home. i hadn’t really listened to The Money Store extensively yet, so all the songs were unfamiliar to me. from the minute Ride came out on stage, the crowd was rambunctious as all fuck, and after a few songs, i got used to the violent atmosphere/sweaty bodies/being crushed by metal dividers or whatever (i’m not v punk or v strong). nothing could have prepared me, though, for the incredible energy the opening guitar riff of this one instilled in the crowd.
thank god i made it out of there alive.
