RL Grime headlined two shows back to back at San Francisco’s iconic Bill Graham Auditorium. Boasting a whopping 18,000 hard copy tickets sold to the general public, these two shows would mark one of the many milestones to come for Henry Steinway.
“my first show in sf was in 2013 and i played to 500 people at the independent. last night in sf i played the biggest solo show of my life and tonight we do it all over again. still hasn’t sunk in that we did over 18,000 tickets here. sf thank u for growing with me. love forever” -RL Grime
The performance completely blew me away. RL Grime displayed an amazing showcase of his artistry, playing a bit of his old anthems and meshing them with what appears to be new music from his upcoming album. The Nova tour was simply out of this world from the atmosphere to the production. Everyone’s ears were glued to the stage in anticipation of what we can expect from this sophomore album.
The energy mixed with the melancholy feel that’s starting to become the musical styles of Grime have been accepted with open arms. Singles like Reims, Stay For It, and Aurora plead guilty to this notion. Hearing the crowd sing their hearts out really made me realize how far this musician has come. The music and brand that is RL Grime has evolved so much over the years. This tour simply took trap music to a higher level. Literally, his production had his booth raise him about 20 feet in the air. I’d like to thank RL Grime’s team for inviting me out to witness history in the making. I had an amazing time and I heavily recommend you catch RL Grime on this tour ASAP.
