A Tribe Called Quest and more at H2O Festival
Who is the H2O Music Festival for?
On paper, Saturday hash of old school hip hop (A Tribe Called Quest, Big Boi), buffed for radio Latin pop (Pitbull, Prince Royce), bro down EDM (DJ Chuckie) and highbrow pan Latino soul (La Santa Cecilia) looked like a losing play of concert booking Boggle. summer fest season right between the rave centric Nandrolone New Zealand HARD Summer and the punky FYF Fest. Each of those festivals has dedicated Comprar Gh Jintropin and growing audiences at the same venue, Los Angeles State Historic Park in Chinatown, and it difficult to imagine something as scattershot as H2O earning similar long term allegiance.

The whole thing was Testosterone Cypionate For Sale Online Canada a mess of genre clashes, and H2O suffered from a cynical streak of marketing. Chevron logos were everywhere (attracting a funny battalion of oil industry protesters in Dia de los Muertos masks). A reporter, trying to enjoy an afternoon lunch on a hillside vista, could barely hear the main stage performance due to the constant carnival barking of a rep from Lowe hardware.
But a few performances were good enough to make messiness almost seem like a method.
Big Boi, the bulwark of the revered Atlanta duo OutKast, performed his solo set while perched atop a red and gilded throne. He had a non vain reason for this (he wore a knee brace and cane after a brutal on stage fall earlier this year). But the regal seating only bolstered his torrents of rhymes and charisma. Between the jungle infused drumming of recent single of My Eye to a volley of OutKast hits from the landmark album, Big Boi remained Buy Viagra Finland the star of this little golden age for old guy hip hop.

A Tribe Called Quest immediately righted the ship, however, with takes on staples such as Out and Biko (Stir It Up) that have lost nothing over the last two decades. In an era where the giants of hip hop are just arguing over art purchases, and the underground is on too much ketamine to finish their verses, Tribe scrappy vigor united H20 disparate crowd.
Top billed Pitbull headlined his own Hollywood Bowl show in June, and at this point has his rave rap seducer shtick on permanent lockdown. But it be interesting to see if the catch all idea behind H2O can keep a devoted crowd of its own in the future. fan without a fest of their own? That could be a show for a huge, untapped crowd of music fans or a fest for no one in particular at all.
