Trash Talk and MellowHype rattle Vancouver on Trash Wang Tour (Live) [Photos]
Vancouver, BC – Originally posted December 15, 2012 – A damp Friday evening at The Rickshaw Theatre saw the Trash Wang West Coast Tour making it’s stop in Vancity. The union of punk rock and hip-hop has never been so sweet; California boys Trash Talk and Mellowhype of Odd Future paired better than studded jackets and Jordans. Openers White Lung and the badass babes of Joyce Collingwood got the right amount of hardcore pumping through the Rickshaw just in time for Trash Wang to swoop in for the kill.
Mellowhype changed up the vibe with a hip-hop flow but managed to keep the crowd just as engaged. They got fresh with beats and the rhymes for a room full of rowdies playing tracks from their latest release Numbers and some older favs from BlackendWhite. Let’s just say Hodgy and Left Brain know to get a party started and keep it going well into the night. With energy that projected through the crowd like a fire cracker the audience was as hyped as they were satisfied. Check the photo set by Jamie Sands after the jump.
