Liquid Swords Live

GZA & Killah Priest trade verses on stage
GZA live @ The North Park Observatory 2/26/2015

On a similar note as the Terranova, I just caught GZA performing Liquid Swords in its entirety last night at The North Park Observatory. The sound was unbelievably heavy, probably the most ear-punishing show I've been to since the Dieselboy tent at Coachella in 2001 (I need to tell you this story sometime), shards of sound rendered as white noise over booming bass charges and skull snapping drums. Killah Priest was even there to rock the mic, acting as Genius' sparring partner for most of the record's guest spots. As a huge fan of Sunz Of Man and Heavy Mental, I was blown away to catch him in the flesh as well (still wish that he'd had a chance to drop Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth though!).

I'd like to go in for more detail shortly, but I'm still reeling from the experience truth be told! Must expand on this in the future...
