It was right around 6:50 pm on Saturday, August 15th when Atmosphere took the stage at MAHA Music Festival at Aksarben Village in Omaha, Nebraska. This hour long set would leave a mark on the attendees. The crowd smelled of alcohol and green, and as Slug and Ant started their show with “Sunshine” it was evident that even the birds were bumping to the beat at this concert.
So many songs from the early 2000’s were revived, including many hits from their older works. Sean Daley performed many songs from the Lucy Ford EP this time around. The anthem “Don’t Ever ******* Question That” was a great inclusion. Also from the same Extended Play, “Guns and Cigarettes” was delivered. Lastly, his a cappella of “The Woman With The Tattooed Hands” was legendary.
As the sun set behind him, there was a moment while he was on stage when Slug said, “My name is Sage Francis.” He then performed a song called “Embarrassed” that featured the late Eyedea and Sage. The show did come to an end with one of their most popular ballads, “Trying To Find A Balance” from Seven’s Travels. It was epic. Lastly, check out the performance of the song “Kanye West” from their most recent 2014 album Southsiders.
