SWAGGNATION LIVE FROM THRIVAL
The Thrival Music returned The Burgh At Carrie Furnaces in Swissvale for another Dope year of live music. This was a Two day Event , during which figures from tech scenes in Pittsburgh discussed the future of entrepreneurship and culture.
Here is a recap of Thrival Music,
Some Dope DJs deliverd hip-hop-EDM dance music to a Friday crowd happy to be free of the week's work. Rounding out the afternoon portion of the lineup were the indie rock band Circa Waves, who came all the way from Liverpool, England, and Pittsburgh-based hip-hop producer DJ Afterthought, a regular on rapper Riff Raff's live tours.
Def Jam rapper Logic, aka, Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, was Friday's headliner. Minutes into the show, Logic proclaimed, "I only care about three things: love, peace, and respect". A few moments later, the emcee dropped the now famous lines from "Killing Spree": "Ass, titties, pussy, weed, money". Illogical? Maybe so. Entertaining? Completely.
The party atmosphere was the perfect lead-in to Pittsburgh homeboy and Thrival Music festival headliner Wiz Khalifa.
True to form, Wiz came out with a giant joint—likely his own brand, Khalifa Kush. After waxing on the philosophy of weed, business and artistry at Thrival's Marque Event at Carnegie Art Museum on Thursday, Wiz blew off some steam (or blew out some smoke) on stage for what was surely the biggest crowd of the festival.
