Kunta’s Groove Session

On Tuesday November 10, I finally finally finally got to see Kendrick Lamar live in concert at the Fox Theater in Oakland. It was definitely a long time coming and I was so excited he picked Oakland as one of his venues for the groove session.

The show started at 8:00 pm and the line was ridiculously long when we got there an hour early. People talked nonstop about how quickly these tickets sold out.

As we entered the theater and got our wristbands, we had to go through ID check. The employee asked me, “Are you planning to drink tonight?” I guess I paused too long because the man in front of me turned around, gave me a quizzical look, and answered on my behalf, “Yeahhhhh.”

Overall, it was a great night, the crowd was really into it, and I definitely got way too excited about the Good Kid, M.A.A.D city songs. Kendrick even did a few Section.80 songs that took us back to 2011.

Of course, he ended the night with “Alright” after the crowd of 2,800 chanted, “We gon be alright!” until he came out to perform it. That’s when we all rushed the stage. Glad I got to attend this time; it definitely had that intimate feel I think Kendrick was going for.
