Hip-Hop Met Hardcore on Wednesday, July 18

The Sound and Fury festivities started early this week when Trash Talk commandeered Velvet Jones on Wednesday night with the help of fellow hardcore outfit Nomads and two hip-hop acts, Alexander Spit and Spaceghostpurrp. The mixture of genres brought out a fiery but friendly crowd, and even when a feud broke out after Trash Talk’s first song, vocalist Lee Spielman stopped everything with a resounding declaration: “This is a mixed show, and everyone here is with me.” Miami rapper Spaceghostpurrp followed suit with a mosh-friendly hip-hop set that ably won over Trash Talk’s fans, including some members of the hip-hop collective Odd Future, who were also in attendance.
