Kid Cudi Finished Smoker’s Club Fest With Everyone’s Favorite Hits THOUGHTS + PHOTOS: KID CUDI @ THE SMOKER'S CLUB FEST APRIL 29, 2018
LONG BEACH, CA-
“Smoker’s Club has consistently presented their annual 420 event with relevant names in hip-hop. Most of the acts on this line up have performed at their events before. However, Kid Cudi was an artist I did not expect to see as the headliner of their first festival. In fact, throughout Day 2 I kept expecting him to cancel or not show up for his performance. By the time Kid Cudi’s set started, fans were running from the second stage after seeing Dom Kennedy make sure they didn’t miss out on this moment.
For many, Kid Cudi was the voice of every “lonely stoner” in high school just trying to get by. His music connected with everyday kids and when he performed a variety of songs from “Marijuana” to “Memories” the crowd reverted to their teenage selves. At one point everyone was chanting “Cudi” Everyone finally settled at the main stage as he was singing “Up Up and Away” and smoke continued filled the air until his set was over. After sharing some deep cuts like “Save My Soul” and “Mr. Rager” he started to wrap up his set with Kanye’s “Father Stretch My Hands.”
