SNOWDOWN SIA 2014 just might go down as one of the best shows of this year. With snow absolutely dumping all over Denver and the rest of Colorado on the night of the show, hundreds of fans lined up in the cold to get into the packed Fillmore Auditorium. While heavy-hitters like Juicy J, RL Grime and SALVA reasonably drew a large amount of people to SNOWDOWN originally, the opening act by native Denver duo Bass Physics, made up of A.P. Adair and Luke Sims, blew fans away. The night was full of energy, and it’s safe to say that nobody left the show disappointed.
Coming off a very productive year, Bass Physics played a high energy set to get the crowd moving before SALVA, RL Grime and Juicy J took the stage. Their sound was a beautiful blend of live keyboard and guitar, mixed with perfectly sampled hip-hop lyrics and upbeat, soulful electronic vibes. With the crowd already energized, SALVA took to the stage and delivered, like always, an absolutely bumping set, bringing trap music to the forefront. RL Grime, one of the biggest names in trap music today, absolutely delivered. Fans went wild for popular tracks like his remix of Kanye West’s ‘Mercy’ and my personal favorite track, ‘Infinite Daps’.
Juicy J was last to take the stage at The Fillmore, but it was absolutely worth the wait. His set was a combination of older, original Three 6 Mafia tracks including ‘Poppin’ My Collar’ and ‘Stay Fly’, and later playing crowd favorites such as ‘Scholarship’ off of his latest album Stay Trippy. SNOWDOWN SIA 2014 will be, without a doubt, one of the most high-energy and most enjoyable concerts of this year thus far. Great atmosphere, great fans, and equally great artists all came together for a night they won’t forget.
