Crizzly and Figure roared into Royal Oak late last month, making every dubstep fan crawl to the Music Theatre begging to get their faces melted by the bass maestros.
It was not just Crizzly and Figure at the Royal Oak Music Theater on November 22, but a slew of dubstep and trap artists, as well. Octiv went on first, and his guitar-shredding skills tied in with his unique dubstep style really warmed up the crowd. I have never heard such a sound different from the rest of the scene, and I really enjoyed it.
Soon after Octiv, Calico came and cooled off the crowd, with his trappy, chillstep tunes. While Calico was playing, upstairs in the balcony Crizzly was holding a VIP Pizza Party! VIP guests could enjoy a Chicago style pizza and chat with the man himself. Those fans were overjoyed while Crizz was signing autographs while the bass throbbed underneath them. One fan even gave Chris Marshalll a U of M pin for his hat, shouting, “Welcome to Michigan!”
After the delicious pizza with Crizz and Figure, it was time for the monster of dubstep to rise. Figure came out swinging, his deep bass lines and sick drops left no one in the audience unscathed. His rendition of “This is Halloween” was by far the hardest track of the night. The crowd was loving Figure, but the anticipation for the crunkstep king was building; it was time for Crizzly to take the stage.
Playing everyone’s favorites, from “Bugatti” to “Chain Hang Low,” Crizzly earned the title of headliner for the night. I didn’t see a single person not losing complete control when “Turn Down For What” was played. Crizz delivered an amazing show, and an astounding pizza.
