The older venue, Webster Hall, was the perfect backdrop for the Flatbush Zombies. The night started dimly lit, filled with smoke from incense and flashing lights amongst other forms of smoke filling the main hall and balcony area. The “3001: A Laced Odyssey Tour” was down to its last two nights so it was only right to end it in their resident city, New York. The two-night show was sold out with Remy Banks and A$AP Twelvyy opening up for The Zombies. Remy Banks, Queens native and smooth lyricist started off the show, followed by A$AP’s very own, 12vy.
This was Twelvyy’s first solo tour, and he killed it. The energy he brought to the crowd as concert goers chanted, “ASAP ASAP,” playing banger after banger was enormous. He left it with his catchy fan favorite, “This My Last Year Being Broke,” in which he brought out members of the ASAP Family to celebrate.
The Zombies set started with four individuals singing acapella stage right while a recording took us on a journey of graphics, background voice and evolution of the trio. One by one each member took the stage until they all formed on the stage while the audience went wild and cell phones recorded.
The Zombies played their newest releases from 3001, songs off of their older mixtapes and even older mixtapes. The crowd sang along to “Palm Trees” and one unreleased song that all we were guided to sing along, “What’s your favorite Strand?” In between songs the guys rapped rhythmically with no musical support, “R.I.P.”…..with names of several deceased hip-hop icons were spoken of while their photos appeared on the screen. Their graphics took us on a colorful trip while the mosh pits broke out below. The Zombies capitalized on their use of stage presence and took a crowd surf at one point too. They are captivating performers and really know how to evoke a feeling in their fans.
