The first night of Grassroots Music Festival 2015 was a hot and slightly chaotic experience. Thousands of people squeezed into Tom Hanafan River’s Edge Park in Council Bluffs, Iowa on Friday, July 31 and an estimated 2,000 waited outside for an hour just to get in. The only good thing about this event was the music and performances by the artists. Logic as an opening act was memorable and some appreciated when Mac Miller said, “Where the titties at?” His choice words for Donald Trump were appreciated as well. But it was the main performer of the evening, Kid Cudi that absolutely saved the day.
Kid Cudi took the stage around 10 pm under a full moon and the crowd went nuts. He said, “Holy F***! The weed smells good!” And there were many smells of the plant throughout the crowd for sure. He put on a brand new song called “Confused” from his upcoming album Speedin Bullet to Heaven. When he played the popular ballad, “Pursuit of Happiness” it was sheer intoxication that took over. And thankfully, he also played the song “Mr. Rager” as well. Check out the video of the song and do not miss him next time he is in your town.
