I'd like to start this blog post by saying that I'm currently watching the episode of Entourage where Gary Busey goes full psycho and tells Turtle that while we're here, we're all looking for the art within ourselves.
Anyway, last week, Kyle and I were fortunate enough to make the trip to New Haven to see our good friend Chris (aka Felly) absolutely demolish a sold-out show at Toad's Place, and letttt meee tellllll you it was a special one. Special not only because we were watching our best friend in full-blown rockstar mode, but also because we were working with some serious home-field advantage. We've been standing in the crowd for at least 10 different shows at Toad's, watching a range of artists capped off by Chronixx at the end of last summer, and I might be biased (I'm definitely biased), but I'm pretty sure Fel played with more energy than anyone else I've seen at the same venue.
It has been a pleasure for us to watch him transform from the kid we knew, rapping in small closets in Vermont rentals, to the weapon we were watching play in front of a sold-out Toad's crowd.
I think it goes without saying that Kyle and I have drawn a ton of inspiration from watching Chris put so much passion into his art. And much like he has, over the next few years washed will be searching for the art within, and we're pretty fuckin' sure we're gonna find it.
So Cheers, Gary. I thank you for the unexpected advice.
