Recap: Pigeons & Planes’ No Ceilings Showcase ft. Kemba, Kaiydo, Michael Christmas, & Boogie

posted by Ellena Rodriguez April 26, 2017

On 4/25, the Pigeons & Planes show, No Ceilings made a pit stop in Chicago’s Bottom Lounge to showcase some dope artists.

To kickoff the night, the rap duo of Chris Crack and Vic Spencer took the stage. Now known as Chri$ Spencer, the two took the audience by surprise as they were not listed to perform. Nonetheless, they set the mood right as they performed a few of their own tracks along with a few songs off of their joint project titled Who The Fuck Is Chri$ Spencer?

Next one up was Kemba, formally known as YC The Cynic. The Bronx rapper stepped into the spotlight with his vintage mic and gave us a mellow and poetic start to his set. He performed his well-known Frank Drake-produced track titled “Already” among other joints that kept everyone vibin’ to thanks to his rhythmic bars. He closed his set with a more energetic track as he had everyone chanting the chorus “Do yo know who you fuckin’ with!?”

20 year old Orlando native Kaiydo followed and showcased himself as an upbeat, yet versatile artist. His set was nothing short of fun as the audience sang along to his catchy tracks like “Arcade” and, of course: “Fruitpunch.” The young rapper hasn’t been in the industry for long and shared with the audience that No Ceilings is actually his first tour. With that, I was very impressed with his performance as he showed he is one artist to look out for.

After Kaiydo came Michael Christmas to command the mic and he was nothing short of memorable. The Boston rapper gave so much love to Chicago as he took many moments to appreciate the city. He even gave a shoutout to Harold’s Chicken (aaayyy). With that being said, Mickey’s chemistry with the crowd was incredible and his presence had everyone smiling. He even went over his set limit yet no one was complaining. From “Michael Cera” to “Grab Her Hand,” Mickey was definitely a highlight of the night.

Last but not least, the highly-anticipated performer of the night, it was finally time for Boogie to close things out. He managed to keep the energy high as everyone sang and danced along to his tracks. From “Oh My” to “Nigg* Needs,” Boogie made a modestly-sized crowd feel like a crowd 3X the size that was actually there. He closed the night off right and made it a night to remember.

The legendary Paul McCartney is coming back Stateside this year! McCartney has announced a new run of U.S. dates to his One On One Tour.

The former Beatle will kick things off July 5th at Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena and continue to cities and metropolitan areas that had not seen a Paul McCartney concert in quite some time — or ever at all. Cities like Tampa, FL; Des Moines, IA; and Omaha, NE will welcome McCartney back for the first time since his 2005 US Tour. One On One will take Paul to three cities and venues he’s never played before: July 13th at the Infinity Energy Arena in Duluth, GA, July 15th at CenturyLink Center in Bossier City, LA, and July 19th at the INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita KS. The tour’s July run concludes on the 25th at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, Tinley Park in Tinley Park IL—Paul’s first appearance in the region since his now-legendary 2015 Lollapalooza headline performance (I was there and it was indeed legendary… my 2nd favorite concert ever [s/o The Strokes in 2003]).

Check out the full One On One 2017 tour dates along with on-sale details. Continue Reading
