The last set of the night I saw was They Live! and it is not a stretch at all to say these guys are going to be big. Get them on the right tour or get them the right amount of exposure and they will blow up, so see them while you can. There is nothing happening in Seattle right now that can match They Live!’s energy, stage presence and rapping skills. Be warned Seattle, your next rap superstars are here and they are They Live!
– Travis Hay/Ear Candy

They Live! just fucking killed shit headlining the Neumos stage. MCs Dro Boy and Bruce Illest (aka Gatsby and BlesOne) are plenty entertaining on their own—genial, cartoonishly animated, and totally on top of their games—but their back-up breakdancer, Chase, as well as his accomplice, damn near steal the show. Whether twitchily stalking the stage like a meth-head on the song of the same name or pulling a lucky lady onstage for a recreation of Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark” video (complete with the Boss’ awesome Carlton-esque dance move), Chase is the act’s not-at-all-secret weapon. They did new song “Whitney” and old favorite “Weed Murderer.” They ended the set by pumping Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” rocking out a la Wayne’s World, before cutting the song up into a beat for one last jam, pulling the crowd up on stage to get down.
