THE DKA LIFE


The Weeknd Live in Ft. Lauderdale

A week ago I drove up to Ft. Lauderdale from where I am right now,  Little Torch Key.

Now don’t get me wrong Little Torch can party its balls off, but last Wednesday I had to leave my cabin and go see The Weeknd.  I been followin him since Bendey first introduced me about a year ago. And it just so happens he was havin’ his first South Florida performance…hell the guy has only performed a couple times in the US so far (he’s Canadian).

It was my first time at Revolution Live in Ft. Lauderdale and I gotta say the place is pretty sweet for concerts.  First come, first serve for spots, two levels, plenty of bars to access, and judging by the aroma of the venue, little to no security.

…see what I did there?

 

There weren’t any openers.  Just the Weeknd himself.  Sadly I didn’t get that close to the stage, (sorry DKAliens), but it allowed me to move around the area and get different shots.

ImageAs for the concert itself, his performance was okay, I enjoyed it.  With time I think he’ll have better stage presence, he still has a lot of time to grow.  Abel definitely has a large following and I still think its only a matter of time before he floods the radio waves, however his music is definitely darker than his buddy’s, Drake, so time will tell.  His trilogy of free mixtapes were fire.

I was happy he played my favorite song of his, Glass Table Girls (see above).  Anyways, after the concert, and probably during, I’d estimate that about 17 new babies were conceived.  The Weeknd knows how to set dat mood.

In other news, in a couple weeks I’ll get to see Frank Ocean at the same venue, pretty pumped.  Fast forward to August and I’ll be seeing both of them at Lollapalooza in the Chi #huzzah.

DKA out.
