Rapper K.Flay gave a strong performance to open the show, followed by Down With Webster, an exciting up-and-coming band with an explosive sound. The seven-man band from Toronto opened their set with It's Time to Win, and followed with non-stop crowd pleasers including Your Man, Whoa is Me, and Rich Girl. The crowd’s energy was off the charts as they danced and sang along with the band, and screamed when asked if they had heard of Down With Webster before. It was clear from their overwhelming response that the Albuquerque crowd had not only heard of the band, they were big fans.
When Hellogoodbye hit the stage, it was definitely less rowdy than the previous group, and less rude than the next. It was clear that people came to experience the outrageous swagger of 3OH!3, and what they got next was just what the doctor ordered.
Nat and Sean of 3OH!3 put on a rowdy show complete with their signature diamond-cutter hand symbol plastered across the background and animatronic wolves with green laser beams shooting out of their eyes on either sides of the stage. It wasn’t just stage props, though. The guys delivered all of the fan favorites and more, like Starstrukk, I'm Not Your Boyfriend, Baby, My First Kiss, and some new songs like Double Vision and I Can Do Anything.
Since it was the last stop on the tour, the band let loose with an extended encore that included Nat crowd surfing and a rendition of Chokechain featuring Kap from Down With Webster. The highlight of the song was Kap, Sean and Nat doing Kap's trademark 'running in place real fast' dance—a sweet move that you have to see to appreciate. Later the supporting bands got back on stage to belt out House Party with 3OH!3. In between hugging, throwing red cups, and picking each other up, the bands flipped off the audience to a chorus of “f*** the DJ!”, sending this tour into the history books.
According to their website 3OH!3 is scheduled to play a show in Pomona, Calif., on December 30, followed by four appearances at Disney World in April and May. Parents bring your earplugs. This music is not safe for kids.
