There’s only one word capable of describing MadeinTYO’s show on Thursday night at Elsewhere Hall – LIT. From top to bottom, this was the most hyped crowd I’ve seen at an Elsewhere show to date.
During the night, Thutmose brought his sing-rapping style to play with all of his fellow Brooklyners, going off-stage to hop in the crowd around a mosh for his turn up songs like “OkOk”, and eventually losing his pinky ring.
Then, on came MadeinTYO. A hyper-animated rapper who loves to jump on stage, throw his hands in the air, and interact with fans, MadeinTYO was taking selfies with their phones and directing fans to create a dancing circle on either side. He mixed in his biggest hits like Ned Flanders and Uber Everywhere alongside bona fide crowd-pleasers from other rappers, like Mo Bamba and Grove St. Party.
Fans were there to see the hype, and MadeinTYO and his entire lineup delivered.
