Saturday Night: ABN Reunion at House of Blues
There is an understood loneliness to many of ABN's songs. "No Help," "No Love" and "One Deep" are tracks that imply the unwillingness or inability to trust or rely on anyone but yourself. That sentiment is the underlying factor that endears ABN's fans to their music. It is at once desperate and hopeful, and always entertaining.
Personal Bias: Some of my favorite experiences in covering Houston rap have been at Trae & Z-Ro shows.
The Crowd: Gritty, glitzy, and gangsta.
Overheard In the Crowd (about opener Snow Tha Product): "I can't understand her even when she's not rapping!"
Random Notebook Dump: I'm thankful for the usual suspects that I see at every rap show. You guys love Houston rap as much as I do, and that inspires me to keep working hard every day.
