Boulder Theater Hosts Sensational Boombox Cartel Set

Boombox Cartel and SUAHN put on a show at Boulder Theater this past weekend. Unfortunately, Great Dane was unable to make it. He was originally on the lineup, however, he announced in a tweet on Thursday that he would not be able to make it due to feeling sick. “Heartbroken to announce I Won’t be able to play in Portland or Boulder this weekend.” The Tweet starts. “Was feeling trash all week so I wanted to be safe and get tested…”, He continued. Unfortunate as it may be, Great Dane seems to be doing the right thing for the people in attendance.

Boulder Theater was still in high spirits with more and more people coming in as each song played. SUAHN took the stage first to get the crowd active. He blends elements of acid, techno, and bass-driven music. In 2021 SAUHN managed to gain the attention of big-name artists such as Louis the Child, Liquid Stranger, and Boombox Cartel. Because of this, It makes sense that he would cover for Great Dane tonight by opening for Boombox Cartel. His sound fit in well with the evening.

With this in mind, Let’s talk about Boombox Cartel‘s sound. While the two-man project consists of both music producer Americo Garcia and writer Jorge Medina, Americo was the only one of the pair in attendance tonight. No stranger to a crowded room his enthusiastic presence on stage was easy to watch. That, blended with his playlist for the evening made this a great show to attend. Furthermore, the duo recently released a new EP titled “The Cartel II,” A follow-up to his successful 2017 release of the same name. Because of this, they’re sure to keep up the rise in popularity. Be sure to catch them at an upcoming show if you get the opportunity. Or check them out in one of the links below!

Yung Gravy Smothers The Boulder Theater With Comedy And Passionate Energy

Yung Gravy Smothers The Boulder Theater With Comedy And Passionate Energy

Yung Gravy Smothers the Boulder Theater with Comedy and Passionate Energy

If one word was, to sum up, Yung Gravy’s performance at the Boulder Theater on November 2nd, 2021, it would most definitely be lighthearted. The artist from Rochester, Minnesota wasted no time showing a relaxed, yet childlike presence on stage. He truly delivered a memorable performance in front of a vibrant audience.

Matthew Hurai, better known as Yung Gravy has been a professional hip-hop artist since 2016. He broke into stardom back in 2018 thanks to social media platform giant, SoundCloud, who helped promote his first platinum-certified single, “Mr. Clean”. Since then, Yung Gravy has performed and sold out several shows across the U.S. As well, he has an upcoming debut tour in Europe next year. His unique sound pairs 1950s oldies music as well as 1970s soul music with modern, trap-infused beats.

To start off the evening, Yung Gravy’s DJ, Tiiiip, appeared before a rowdy crowd of predominantly energetic Boulder students. He mixed together popular songs from a variety of eras, including Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” and Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.”, to hype up the eager audience.    

Shortly after Tiiiip’s solo set, Yung Gravy approached the stage in a calm, yet collective manner as hundreds of spectators screamed with uncaged excitement. The stage lights dazzled on Yung Gravy as he opened his set with his funk-laced banger, “Gravy Train”. He directly followed up with his breakout hit, “Mr. Clean”, which ironically coordinated with his soothing voice that echoed through the speakers in between songs. 

Aside from how Yung Gravy portrayed himself as a performing artist that night, seeing him humbly portray himself as a person became an intriguing part of his set. Throughout the set, he discussed his perennial love for sports, which energized the college football-crazed crowd. To play along with Yung Gravy, Tiiiip enthusiastically threw on the NFL on Fox theme, as a wave of kids jumped up and down with excitement. Yung Gravy also portrayed his friendly demeanor when he let his DJ and his producer rhyme with him on stage during select songs. Yung Gravy displayed his romantic and softer side, as he gracefully tossed roses that were directed towards the younger women in the crowd.

To settle down his vivacious spectators, he performed sentimental songs like “Charlene” and established a more soothing mood to his set in contrast to the vibrant club anthems that he started the show with. 

Conclusion

Aside from his musical performances, Yung Gravy’s infamous on-stage segments were the most unforgettable part of his set. These sudden antics consisted of jovial throws of both water bottles and carrot cake into the audience. Shortly after supplying the audience with perishables, he proceeded to show off an unexplained tattoo of Martha Stewart’s name inked on his upper shoulder before performing his song with the famous Food Network’s star name in the title.

Yung Gravy’s merry persona may make him one of hip-hop’s funniest live performers, but his passionate and fan-appreciative performance on-stage that night in Boulder was no joke. With joyful energy that distinctly matched the power of his tender heartbeat, he not only showed that he was a talented performing artist but showed that he was a master at crowd control as well.

Hurai’s performance style resonates with fans not only in the hip-hop community but also connects with fans that carry eclectic tastes in music. For that reason, his live performances, such as this one, are the coating to mainstream hip-hop’s turkey. With this type of charismatic performance, he likely won’t be leaving the music industry alone anytime soon.

The Energy Is Building For MALAA’s Return To Colorado This Thursday

Who Is MALAA?

Attention house music lovers: this one is for you! In just a few days, MALAA is bringing The Americano Fall tour to Boulder, Colorado. This Thursday, October 14th, the Boulder Theater will come alive with MALAA‘s high-energy, groove-worthy house music.

MALAA is an insanely talented producer and DJ from Paris, France who keeps his identity concealed by always donning a black balaclava. Some of his early tracks, including “Notorious“, led him to quickly gain serious traction in the scene. In addition to regularly posting his Who Is MALAA mixes on Soundcloud, MALAA has continued to release music that draws everyone’s attention. For example, his most recent release is a collaboration with DJ Snake titled “Pondicherry“.

MALAA is part of Tchami‘s Confession Label and has traveled the globe touring with the Pardon My French crew (Tchami, DJ Snake, Mercer, and MALAA). Meanwhile, he also does plenty of solo tours and festival performances as well. In fact, he just recently performed at Beyond Wonderland at The Gorge in Washington.

The Highly Anticipated Return

Finally, MALAA is making his way back to Colorado. This show has become highly, highly anticipated after he wasn’t able to make it to the Mission Ballroom in July. He explained in a tweet (that is now deleted) that he wasn’t able to make it into the country due to certain restrictions involving his visa. To clarify, the situation was not anything that he could control, so he had to work with being delayed getting into the US and adjust his tour schedules. Luckily, DJ Snake was able to throw down an amazing show regardless, but there was no B2B as expected.

The Boulder Theater is located on 14th Street, near the Pearl Street Mall. This beautiful venue caps off at 850 attendees and is complete with a balcony for elevated viewing. Boulder locals HARVE b2b KAEGI, GANO, and Ryne Cunningham will be opening up the night and getting the crowd ready for MALAA.
