Last Night: Riff Raff at Fitzgerald's
By the time he closed his 45-minute set with "Cuz My Gear," his viral-video hit collaboration with Chief Keef that includes bizarre lyrics like, "Camp counselor, living in the lap of luxe/Double cheese deluxe in the penguin tux," he'd won over even the dudes with their arms folded.
When the mike went silent, his fans quickly scattered, ready to head home after a long night to upload their footage to YouTube. If seemed awfully appropriate -- after all, Riff Raff may have come from Houston once, but the weird, wild world of streaming HD video is where he belongs. Though his destiny may have taken him far beyond this plane of feasibility, he's welcome to come back and visit anytime.
Personal Bias: How did he get on From Gs to Gents without being either? Was it the MTV neck tat?
The Crowd: Non-blacks.
Overheard In the Crowd: "I just came for the spectacle of seeing Riff Raff." And what did you think? "It's the worst!"
Random Notebook Dump: At the end of the show, there was a fire truck and an ambulance waiting for us out front. Not sure what that was about, but I didn't see any flames or blood.
