Yelawolf Rocks Conan 12/05/11
And with the Crimson Tide being put in the BCS National Championship game earlier this week, it was only fitting Alabama’s own Yelawolf came on Conan Monday night with a song called “Let’s Roll”.
The latest prodigy out of Eminem’s Shady Records camp came on stage with full band, including Travis Barker (of Blink 182 fame) on drums and a back up singer that looked exactly like Cee-Lo Green. Rocking the crimson red tee shirt with the Alabama “A” on it, I must say his performance was quite unlike the 9-6 LSU-Alabama game from earlier this year, as it was entertaining.
Jumping around stage with a huge chain swinging, band kicking out the jams, just running through verses filled with intricate lyrics faster than I could keep up with was all combined enough to have me, a first timer, sold on his future potential. Plus, he runs with Eminem and Slaughterhouse..
And Let’s note that’s what makes Conan the more ‘hip’ of the Late Night hosts-he shows us his copy of the album on vinyl, as oppose to the CD I saw Kimmel holding up on a performance a week or two ago. The album is ‘Radioactive’, and it’ in stores now.
Jay Porks here.. You may bump into me at a show or two-I am the one wearing the shirt that says Your Favorite Band Sucks while juggling a camera and taking notes... I love music, so when I go to Rock concerts I feel the need to pass off my experiences of the show to you, the reader, by writing a review here @ ConcertConfessions.com and of course over @ JayPorks.Com.. I use the term review loosely while grimacing, because thats not what this is.. It is not all about the technicalities of the situation more than it is about what the situation brings to the technicalities... The Jay Porks Experience, take a stroll my shoes for a little while...
