Kanye West Surprise performance at Brooklyn Bowl

A little after 2am Sunday morning, as sweaty, drunk, and all but tired hipsters danced and partied to one band after another at Pichfork’s #Offline Festival at Brooklyn Bowl, guests got a big surprise. Glammed out in bling, an excited, energetic, and oh so entertaining Kanye West took the stage. Backed by DJ A-Trak, he performed five of his newest hits: “So Appalled”, “Monster”, “Devil in a New Dress”, “Power”, and “Runaway”. He was electric, charismatic, and on top of his game. It looked like he was having a good time. As an added bonus, GZA took the stage after Kanye, and performed “Liquid Swords”. Its been a great week for live music in NYC. As the impending CMJ/Pitchfork rivalry grows into a feud, the the spoils of war may be ours to reap in the form of good shows.
