Hmmmmmmm.... fantastic show. Lex was dope.. MC was spot on.. we always do what we can to support the scene.. .. but were asked constantly to donate and buy stuff. We bought a shirt and donated some flowers. Just a weird thing to be asked to give/donate more while chillin' after the show.

Headliners and "tour package" were great. The extra six openers were a little much. I was so tired by the end.
